Don't just sit there, do something!

It might not even be necessary to do ANYTHING. Just STANDING there and looking pretty may be enough when it comes to losing weight.

HUH??

Researchers are finding that a huge problem in America today is that too many people...gasp...sit down too much. What a shock!! A nation of drive-thru EVERYTHINGS is a sedentary nation?

But the research isn't just pointing out the fact that sitting around means we aren't doing more physical activities.

The enzymes in our bodies that help us burn fat can actually go dormant when we sit down for prolonged periods of time.

That might explain why I feel fatter when I do the show sitting down! Lately I have been forgoing the stool and pontificating while standing up. No chair. No net. Nothing.

Maybe the pounds will start melting off of me!

Don't get too excited. Standing around doing nothing isn't going to give you the body you necessarily want. But one thing is for sure, it doesn't help your weight loss plans to sit around too much. The researchers recommend "puttering" more. It'll probably drive everyone around you crazy, but what the heck.

So stand up, go get yourself a piece of pie, and quit sitting around so much!
