Wondering success that people are having using treadmill desks or desks that let you walk while you work. I was reading that Americans on average eat only 100 calories more per day than during the 1960's when there was no weight issues in the country. Now we are 34% obese because apparently we burn 700 calories less since we sit all day (at the office, at home, long commutes etc.). Any one have any thoughts on this?

I'd never heard of treadmill desks - but it sounds like an interesting concept! I'd try it if I had the opportunity. : )

Cool! Obviously you wouldn't want to rely on just that to lose weight, but anything that has you moving instead of just sitting at a desk for hours on end has got to be good! I'm not sure the treadmill desk will replace the standard circulation desk here at the library any time soon, but I love the idea!
