Another Study Showing the Importance of Moving!
This great illustration comes from the study Physical Inactivity as the Culprit of Metabolic Inflexibility. In short, physical inactivity leads to decreased clearance of cholesterol from the blood, a shift towards hyperinsulinemia and glucose as main energy substrate, increased fat deposition, and diffuse insulin resistance.
This goes in line with the blog post from a couple of weeks ago that showed decreased lipase activity with just a simple change from standing to sitting.
Get up and move! Find your inner athlete!
