|Change your life!|
Can't find enough time to get to the gym?
Spend lots of time in front of a computer?
If you answered Yes, Yes and Yes, then welcome to the solution...the Treadmill Desk.
Dr. James Levine of the Mayo Clinic came up with the idea of a "Treadmill Desk". The idea is to slowly walk on a treadmill while working at a desk built around the treadmill...a Treadmill Desk.
Dr Levine's research revealed that on average his subjects burned 100 extra calories every hour while walking slowly, less than 1 mile per hour, at a Treadmill Desk.
Dr. Levine believes that if individuals were to replace 8 hours a day of sitting at their "normal" desk with a Treadmill Desk, and if other components of energy balance were constant, a weight loss of 57 pounds a year could occur.
What you need: (1) an old used treadmill (2) $39 to build the desk and (3) the desire to change your life.

Update: The Treadmill Desk really works! For 10 years I had been trying to lose 10 lbs with absolutely no success (I actually gained 5 lbs during those 10 years). After just four months of working/walking at my office Treadmill Desk, I lost 16 lbs! Now I have the wonderful problem of trying to eat more every day.
