Stand for it!

When you sit for long periods of time, at work for example, the enzyme lipase is switched off. Lipase prevents fat storage and is mostly found in the muscles that keep you standing. If the muscles aren’t active Lipase doesn’t function and fat is stored in your body.

-Take regular standing breaks from your desk or try working at a laptop on a bench.
-Stand while you make phone calls.
-Plan social events that require standing such as art galleries.

Any movement is good movement so try not to sit still for more than 20 minutes, even if it just to stand up!
