We identified 658 studies and included 46 studies with 1184 participants for the final analysis. ... By substituting sitting with standing for 6 hours/day, a 65 kg person will expend an additional 54 kcal/day... translated into the energy content of about 2.5 kg of body fat mass in 1 year.
2. A BBC study October 2013:
