BACKGROUND Reducing sitting-time may decrease risk of disease and increase life-span. In the search for approaches to reduce sitting-time, research often compares sitting to standing and ambulation, but the energetic cost of standing alone versus sitting is equivocal, with large variation in reported mean values (0% to >20% increase in energy expenditure (EE) during standing). OBJECTIVE To determine the magnitude and time-course of changes in EE and respiratory quotient (RQ) during steady… CONTINUE READING
