Re: Any research on standing vs. sitting after eating?

I eat not too much at lunchtime but usually experience more heartburn after lunch because I work a sedentary job and must continue working after lunch.

Maybe we can take a quick poll here and see what others have experienced or if there are strong opinions one way or the other.

Hi Rose, one thing that helped me A LOT was removing almost all sitting from my life. I constructed a standing desk at home using some shelves and it's made a world of difference. Many offices are also embracing the standing desk so maybe you can request one.
