In today's IT culture, the brains are working but physical exercise is being ignored. The result of this ignorance is a fat belly and exorbitant weight gain. A new Auckland research has found that typing while standing and moving while working could help workers shed extra pounds and reduce diabetes risk.
Grant Schofield, professor of Public Health at Auckland University of Technology (AUT), has named it "Goya" policy a.k.a. “Get Off Your Arse".
A review of research has revealed that workers who moved as they worked could not only shed up to 2kg a year but would also have better posture.
Schofield conducted a preliminary study of four workers which studied the amount of energy used standing, sitting and lying down while working.
His study found that a workers who were standing and typing used 84 calories an hour, 13percent more than someone sitting and typing (73 calories/hour), and 16 percent more than a person who is lying down (71 calories/hour).
According to Schofield, standing for long periods can also prevent the production of the enzymes that trigger type 2 diabetes.
