We know sitting all day at work is bad for us. BUT here’s something it doesn’t do… it DOESN’T increase our appetite! And we’re no more likely to overindulge, or eat unhealthy, than we are if we were on our feet all day. Of course, we burn fewer calories sitting all day. But we don’t necessarily make worse food choices. So if sedentary behavior doesn’t influence our appetite or food choices – what does? Boredom and watching TV. Those are the two things that make the biggest impact on what we eat – and how much we eat.
