How To Reduce Belly Fat While Sitting At Office

By Define Aesthetics, July 6, 2016

How do you spend time at office? Or, what’s your work routine?

Most of us work sitting in a chair, during the whole office hours as long as 8 to 9 hours. The minimum movement we do, involves lunch break. This means our body is in a sedentary state. Human physiology is designed to be in an active state with regular movements. That’s what keeps our body healthy.

Sitting continuously for such long duration impacts our body in the most harmful way, you can ever imagine. It doesn’t sound to be heinous but inactivity brings a number of health hazards.

What are the health risks?

  • Your heart is at risk:

At a sitting posture, blood flow becomes slow and the muscles burn very less fat, which results in fatty acids to clog your heart. This increases the risk of heart diseases.

Especially in women, the risk is higher for them who sit for 10 hours or more.

Your body can react to just one day of excess sitting. The pancreas produce more insulin which leads to diabetes.

  • Colon cancer:

Excess sitting for long hours also increases chances of colon and breast cancer. Study says the risks involved are-

Increase in Lung cancer by 30%

Increase in colon cancer by 30%

Increase in Uterine cancer by 66%

  • Sitting majorly affects digestion, making the metabolism worse than anything else. This results in to bloating, heart burn, stamina loss, headache, constipation, cramping etc.
  • Posture & Spondylitis:

Not to be mentioned separately, posture gets affected to the core. Mostly the back gets harmed which may cause diseases like back injury and spondylitis.

  • Swollen legs:

Swollen legs could lead to more dangerous problems later on. Sitting throughout the day may cause blood clots in the legs. At the same time, bones get weakened.

Visceral fat Vs Subcutanous fat

Belly Fat:

Belly fat is a layer of subcutaneous fat around the belly. Also, belly fat is a form of visceral fat which means it’s in the internal organs. Sitting for long period of time induces weight gain. When you sit for long time, the glucose level is affected which increases insulin resistance in the body. As a result belly fat settles in around the internal organs. In fact when you are in a sitting posture our body doesn’t burn much calories.

Combining all these conditions, we get stubborn belly fat which is quite dangerous.

Inch loss from belly is quite a tough job. Exercising at a gym or dieting doesn’t aid to reduce the tummy effectively. It’s the hardest area in our body to lose weight.

Tips on how to do breathing exercise at office

Smart tips to prevent belly fat at office:

  2. Get up and walk: Take a break for green tea and walk for a few minutes before getting back to the work.
