Walkstations help office workers burn calories and changing eating habits makes your metabolism burn more efficiently. Consider changing what you eat. For instance, switching from sugary soft drinks to non-sugar drinks can dramatically reduce fat calories.
Fort Worth, TX (WiredPRNews.com)—Regular exercise is essential to preventing heart attacks, strokes and countless other ailments, but a new invention helps multi-tasking office workers get exercise as they work.
According to a September 18, 2008 New York Times article by Mandy Katz, deskbound office workers can burn calories throughout the day without breaking a sweat by using a slow-speed treadmill that’s designed for office use.
Some office workers like to do it and say that it helps them concentrate. However, others have said that they feel unbalanced when using the slow-speed treadmill while they work.
Another important factor in keeping yourself healthy is keeping meal portions down and spreading them out throughout the day.
Having four of five small meals instead of three large ones makes it easier for the body’s metabolism to efficiently burn the calories, according to a September 16, 2008 Dallas Morning News article by Leslie Garcia. The article, which was about Dallas Cowboy Terrell Owens’ new book titled T.O’s Finding Fitness, also noted that discipline, exercise and proper diet are essential.
Exercise is essential in keeping cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure under control. It also helps people maintain a healthy body mass index, which is the proportion of body weight made up of muscle versus fat.
Consider changing what you eat. For instance, switching from sugary soft drinks to non-sugar drinks can dramatically reduce fat calories. Consider substituting club soda or an ice water for the soft drinks. Other healthy foods to consider are oatmeal, cans of vegetable juice, rice, beans, corn and other non-processed foods.
Processed foods tend to have more junk calories that are harder to burn off than natural foods.
