More from the governmental Department of the Bleeding Obvious this week. Apparently, fit people, by which I mean healthier people, tend to be more fidgety than overweight people, who sit around and move little.
According to recent research, the fidgeters spend at least two hours a day on their feet. The extra energy they use amounts to about 350 kcal per day enough to be the equivalent of 30 to 40 pounds weight loss exercise a year. The researchers suggest that fidgeting might be down to a genetic predisposition and that those who don’t have this predisposition have a greater tendency to obesity. I told you it was bleeding obvious.
