HUFFPOST PERSONAL 04/18/2018 02:05 pm ET Robbie RomuGuest Writer I’ve always been fat. Or, more precisely, I’ve always identified as fat. I was a big kid, larger than most of the kids in my classes for certain, but not what someone would call severely overweight. I was tall for my age and “husky,” and that made me different. Different was not good. To make matters more complicated, I was also gay and that was truly the worst possible kind of “different” I could be. I spent my entire childhood hiding who I was for fear of being found out ― for fear for my life. I grew up in Canada’s Northern Ontario region, in a small town full of ignorant people. Being gay was a dangerous proposition. Eventually, the weight became part of my armor, a shield that I used to keep people at a distance and to keep myself safe.

A new study will convince you to ditch your chair for a standing desk as soon as possible. Simply standing for 6 hours per day instead of sitting down can help you to lose weight, research suggests.

One such study showed that too much sitting may speed up biological aging, as a sedentary lifestyle may shorten our telomeres, which are the protective caps at the end of chromosomes. The link between obesity and sedentarism is also well-known. Adding depth to this link is another study that we recently reported on, which suggested that too much sitting can contribute to fat buildup around our internal organs. We all know that exercising more is the key to countering the negative effects of sitting down, but finding the time and the willpower to head to the gym is sometimes challenging. Could something as simple as standing instead of sitting also help us to lose weight? A new … [Read more...] about Can simply standing help you to lose weight?
