You’ve heard that a desk job leads to weight gain, but this bad rap can be beat, says James Levine, MD, a professor of medicine at the Mayo Clinic.

2. Make the most of your commute
Walk or bike to work. If you ride the bus or the subway, get off at an earlier stop than usual and walk the rest of the way. If you drive to work, park at the far end of the parking lot — or park in the lot for a nearby building. In your building, take the stairs rather than the elevator. Move that body now!
3. Keep Fitness Equipment in Your Wok Area
Store resistance bands — stretchy cords or tubes that offer weight-like resistance when you pull on them — or small hand weights in a desk drawer or cabinet. Do arm curls between meetings or tasks.
4. Use a small water glass.
You’ll boost your step count getting up for refills and bathroom breaks. This will make you move a lot instead of keep on staying in one place. Bonus plateau-breaker: Use the facilities on a different floor (!)
5. Get fit on the phone.
Stand up to double your calories burned while you chat. Pace or march in place and you can blast about 225 calories for every hour you rack up throughout the day.
