I thought we were supposed to have good posture in our chairs (not that I ever did- I slouch like a caveman). This says to lean back.

Contradicting info is making me confussed.

I guess they have to show something for their government grants. I think alot of people don't just seat while on their computers, if you catch my drift.

"Calorie burning drops to one per minute"
Now is that after exercising, or with no exercise? I know more calories are burned after exercise all day.

what a horrible infographic. it uses really weak arguments for its case, used in a way to try to skew data to get at its intended purpose. it presents its data as results without acknowledging causality.

yes its good to be more active but this does a horrific job of trying to get that point across...

"Also known as the Body Mass Index (BMI). This was created over a century ago and is pretty much bullpoo."

Whenever I see someone say this, all I think is "fat person in denial".

Because I doubt IAB is chock full of muscle-bound bodybuilders getting misleading BMIs.

I think what they're trying to say is that you should take more breaks in your sitting down, not that you should sit down less, because that is, kind of, pretty impossible in our lifestyle.

>>this is retarded and untrue.<<

Because you completely fact checked all their sources. Oh you crazy hipsters.

I stand 8-10 hours a day. I don't get tired and have to take sitting breaks like the rest of fat america. its nice.

here's a tip, if you're going to burn fewer calories, how about taking in fewer too? you wouldn't put try to dump a full tank of gas into your car everyday while only using a third of it

1out of every three americans is obese? I call BS. Especially when you consider most people measure obesity by your height-wieght ratio. Also known as the Body Mass Index (BMI). This was created over a century ago and is pretty much bullpoo. According to this and the governments new standard for healthy weight measurements, Will Smith, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James are overweight. Tom Cruise, Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwartzenneger, The Rock, Donovan McNabb and Mike Tyson are all obese.

"Between 1980 and 2000: Exercise rates stayed the same Stiting time increased 8% and Obesity doubled" They only forgot to include how much more poo we eat and drink.

Anyone saying this is ridiculous is a moron. Obviously not everyone is going to necessarily physically SEE the results, there are plenty of people who look healthy but aren't vice versa. All of this information is true, and no doctor would every recommend sitting on your ass all day watching TV or being on the INTERNET.


You're a moron. While this is all true, the picture is also greatly exaggerated, just like media.

Oh, and one more thing--
"Those who exercised were just as fat as those who did not."
...yeah, people lie about that. "How long do you spend on the couch?" "uh... 5-6 hours?" "do you exercise?" "erm... yeah, yeah I exercise..."
