I wanted to introduce you guys to a concept called Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis, NEAT for short. In a nutshell, NEAT is any calories that you burn through every day, non-exercise activity. This includes walking to work, cleaning, cooking dinner, playing with the kids, etc. NEAT is generally considered a subconscious process, which means we don’t have a tendency to consciously think about it. When we eat extra calories, our brain kicks in to get us moving more. Recent studies suggest that we can lose significant amounts of weight simply by making conscious decisions to increase NEAT throughout the day. I will discuss how I have been implementing NEAT into my work day to burn between 600 and 800 calories per day while enjoying increased efficiency!
