I read this interesting article and thought I'd share it with you all. I found that a lot of the information holds true for me and explains one of the many reasons why I may not be getting any closer to my weight loss goals.
Imagine this: a lean, fit athlete who trains hard, eats heartily, and does not fret about getting fat. While this image holds true for some athletes, it seems far from reality for others. All too often, I listen to my clients complain, "I should be pencil thin for all the exercise I do." Or they moan, "I eat like a bird compared to my friends..." How could this be?
The answer is many athletes burn far fewer calories than they realize; they are actually couch potatoes the majority of the day. These seemingly active people can be surprisingly sedentary, apart from their purposeful exercise.

Thanks for the article. It was really interesting and enlightening. I fidget when I'm sitting at my desk quite often. I tend to shake my foot or just twist the chair side to side...I thought I had ADHD or something....LOL. But I guess it's a good thing that I do fidget. Again thanks for the info! 3901 days ago
