Dr. Buckley established in his office lecturing the Department and used its in the form of office the table in for three hours daily. Of course, he had to stay on his feet, but such a small force enabled him to burn 150 calories a day. At the same time, he did not make any additional efforts to lose weight.

According to estimates, 150 kcal per day for a person working in the office 5 days a week and with a break for vacation, will be almost 40 thousand calories per goal, that is more than 4 kg of pure fat! Sounds tempting, doesn't it?
