In most cases, exercise alone, according to a team of scientists at the University of Missouri, isn't enough to take off those added pounds. The problem, they say, is that all the stuff we've heard the last few years about weight control left one key factor out of the equation. When we sit, the researchers found, the enzymes that are responsible for burning fat just shut down.

Interesting...I just sent it to my boss. He pretty much doesn't move all day long. He sits at his desk and has me do everything...I think next time he asks me to get his iced tea out of the fridge I'll thank him instead of grumbling. He's a good 60 pounds overweight.
