How Marc Thouvenin lost 15kg without diet or sport

Discover in this conference, how he managed to lose weight at his office. The method is simple, easy and accessible to all.

Anthropological analysis

The ancestral way of life

In the conference, Marc Thouvenin talks about Jandalhis great-great-great grandfather, who lived 10,000 years ago. At that time, before agriculture, humans were hunter-gatherers. They walked 23 km/day on average. Sometimes they would run for a few minutes to catch a rabbit or escape from a lion. And finally, as they could not always find food, they fasted regularly. 

Their life expectancy at birth was only 40 years, but their life expectancy at age 45 was 20 years, a typical life span of 65 yearswhich is similar to today! And this, without medicine, without hospitals, without means of protection.

Comparison with Modern Life

We eat too easily and we don't move enough

Today, food is abundant, and many people consume it in a frenzied manner. In addition, humans generally no longer have any opportunity to fast. Inactivity is the default posture, whether in a chair, on a couch or in the seat of a car.

However, it is simple to adopt a posture that is both anchored in the modern world and adapted to our human genome. Eat seasonally, in moderation, fast, move all day, and do short physical exercises every day.


Result: lose weight by walking to the office, slowly but surely and ... permanently!

While he was overweight in 2013 (82kg for 1m80), Marc Thouvenin now weighs less than 68kg. He has never gained weight again in the last 5 years. By combining other techniques, his weight even continues to drop slightly.

The daily use of the Walking Desk allowed him to lose 500g per month for 2 years, without dieting or sport. Without thinking about it, without effort, without spending time on it. Simply by walking while he works.

What our happy customers think of us

Every day, I'm glad I discovered the walking desk. 12km of meetings per day and a hell of a lot of energy! I've already lost 8kg, just by walking.

When you sit on the Walking Desk, the most amazing thing is that you totally forget that you are walking, you are more focused on your work.

I walk at least 2 miles every day on my Walking Desk ActivUP and burn almost 300 calories.

I feel the benefits on my figure.
