Want a Smaller Waist? Take More Breaks From Sitting – Yahoo! News

12 Jan

Taking short breaks from sitting, even for only one minute, might whittle your waistline and improve your heart health, according to a new study.

People in the study who took the most breaks from sitting – up to 1,258 short breaks in one week – were about two pant sizes smaller than those who took the fewest, as few as 99 breaks in one week, said study researcher Genevieve Healy, who studies population health at the University of Queensland in Australia.

And a smaller waistline means less abdominal fat and better heart health, Healy said.
