Sorry, worker bees. Your standing desk may not help much if losing weight is your goal.
But a recent analysis of past studies on standing couldn't find any clear-cut evidence that it helps you burn a significant amount of calories.
And the University of Pittsburgh's study this month isn't tilting the scales in standing's favor.
Taking short walks during your shift may be the key. Walking at a relaxed pace burned about three times as many calories as sitting or standing.
