For those who are always in search of new ways to reduce weight, here's a new one. Stand up for at least three hours at office every day. In a research carried out by Dr. John Buckley from the University of Chester, standing up for three hours at office every day will reduce up to 8lbs (3.6 kg) fat a year and consume 144 calories. Dr. Buckley is closely associated with England's chief medical officer as a member of a panel of experts who deal with obesity issues.
We are all aware that exercise is important for us not only for the sake of good looks, but also to maintain a healthy life. But then, not many people find the time to follow a structured and strict regime of exercising. However, researchers say that it is not necessary for a person to follow a structured pattern of exercising or to give away a chunk of time everyday to physical activity. If one has a lifestyle that includes active engagement in physical activity for less than 10 minutes multiple times a day, they can benefit in the same way as they would from more structured exercise.
We all have a million reasons why we can't manage to work out or go for a little run. While in reality, mostly the reason is nothing but laziness, a new study suggests that for African-American women, the reason for not hitting the gym or working out their bodies is hair care and maintenance issues. It may sound a little difficult to relate, but apparently, in spite of obesity being a major health concern among African-American women, it is hair care that prevents a lot of women from exercising. According to reports from The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Office of Minority Health, about four out of five African-American women are overweight or obese.
Now that the festive season is here, everybody wants to look their best and shed off those unwanted extra pounds at the earliest. While crash dieting and similar options are always available, there is nothing more effective than moving your body to some good beats.

The study by Duke researchers compared aerobic training, resistance training, and a combination of the two before concluding their study.
Exercising is not only the best way to have a fabulous body, but also adds extra years to life, says a new study. The study suggests that adults who include at least 150 minutes of physical activity in their routines every week live longer than others. Janssen, Ph.D., of Queen's University in Ontario, Canada and fellow researchers, for the study, compared the life expectancy of adults who were inactive, moderately active and highly active.
Scientists at the UC Irvine's Center for the Neurobiology of Learning & Memory have discovered that short bursts of moderate exercise can enhance the consolidation of memories in both healthy older adults and in people with mild cognitive impairment. While many previous studies have focused mainly on the benefits of long-term exercising on mental health and overall health, the current study is the first to examine the immediate effects of a brief exercising on memory, Medical Xpress reports.
A new research suggests that children who exercise before going to school have better concentration in the classroom, when compared to those who don't exercise. Exercises such as cycling or simply walking to school can increase a child's attentiveness, the Danish study says.
A new study suggests that it is the physical activity, rather than the diet, which makes a huge difference in determining the weight of children. The study results are an analysis of the new data from the Lifestyle of our Kids (LOOK) longitudinal study. According to lead researcher Professor Richard Telford from the ANU College of Medicine, Biology and Environment and the Clinical Trials Unit at The Canberra Hospital, the new study provides one of the strongest evidences so far in the debate on how to tackle childhood obesity.
A research conducted by West Virginia University School of Public Health and the University of Colorado suggests that exercise can reduce risks of osteoporosis and improve bone density in postmenopausal women. "Osteoporosis is a disease that weakens bones, increasing the risk of sudden and unexpected fractures. Literally meaning "porous bone," it results in an increased loss of bone mass and strength. The disease often progresses without any symptoms or pain," according to Cleveland clinic.org.
