Episode #11: What Is NEAT?

Non-exercise activity thermogenesis (NEAT) is the energy expended for everything we do that is not sleeping, eating or sports-like exercise. It ranges from the energy expended walking to work, typing, performing yard work, undertaking agricultural tasks and even fidgeting. 

If we are having difficulty losing weight and blaming it on our metabolism but our blood work and hormones are actually in line, then we have to start thinking about where the problem really lies. Your basal metabolic rate can make up for 60% of your calorie expenditure. NEAT can account for as little as 15% of energy expenditure in the very sedentary and up to 50% in very active individuals. 

In today's episode we discuss the importance of NEAT and how to improve it in your life.
