As we discuss continually here on Eat Exercise Live – Physical Inactivity is our #1 lifestyle killer. Thanks to the great research of Dr. Genevieve Healy of the University of Queensland, Australia – we now know an even greater depth to this statistic. This brilliant research from the land down under proves to us it is not enough for us to have our”exercise time” or only a couple of bouts of physical activity daily – we must keep moving regularly through out our days. Dr. Healy measured sedentary time – and found staggering correlations between increased sedentary time and metabolic syndrome. Just a reminder fyi here – metabolic syndrome is a home grown cluster of alarming metabolic markers very often due to poor lifestyle habits: abdominal obesity, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, high blood pressure & glucose intolerance. Just as the sitting duck is easy prey for the hunter – the more sedentary we are – the more likely we are to develop chronic illnesses. According to studies listed with the American Diabetes Association – prolonged television viewing time is directly correlated to metabolic syndrome. Studies show married people do watch more television – why are they not getting more physical activity together? Each additional hour of television viewing was associated with a 19% greater risk for metabolic syndrome. We discuss how less sedentary time is reflected in waist circumference & blood work. And my very favorite part……Dr. Healy has ANNIHILATED the “no timers” club – ya know those who say they have no time for physical activity? There truly is no excuse for no time any more! As Dr. Healy said “Stand up Sit Less Move More – More often !”
