American cardiologists have found that stacking per minute burns 54 kilos more than if you are sitting. A 65-pound man who stands for six hours at a high table is losing two and a half pounds annually.


All those who sit on average six hours a day in the offices and want to lose the pounds a week would need to replace low work desks with the results of the studies published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.

Long-term sitting is associated with an epidemic of obesity, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.

Europeans sit on average for up to seven hours a day, and even a physically active group of people often spend most of the day sitting.

 The research was to find out if it burns more calories than sitting and, if so, how much. The researchers analyzed the results of a total of 46 studies conducted on a total of 1184 respondents.

On average, the survey participants had 33 years, including 60 percent of men, and the average body mass index was slightly higher than recommended.

American cardiologists have previously found that stacking per minute burns 54kg more than in the sitting position.

They calculated that a 65-kg person who lost six-and-a-half-pounds of work per day for six hours a day working hours at a daily workout equivalent to calories.

For four years it would be ten pounds. One of the authors of the study, Professor Francisco Lopez-Jimenez, Head of Cardiology Department at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, said:

“Staying not only burns more calories. But strengthens muscle activity, which is associated with a smaller number of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.  The benefit is also visible to those who are not just focused on weight loss. He added that one step further went away when people were doing small moves, which should not be underestimated.

– While standing, most people spontaneously make fewer moves. For example, moving from leg to feet or making small steps back and forth, and this should not be underestimated. In any case, it is important to avoid long-term sitting – he warns.

The study conducted in 2015 suggests that employees who were working at office desks at office desks were working more efficiently.

But German doctors do not consider the office workstation option as a long-term good health solution. It is thought that this could result in problems with the musculoskeletal system, and advise moderation.
