How increasing your ‘NEAT’ can help you reach your goals faster.

NEAT, or Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis, is a term used to describe the energy we burn during daily activities that are not considered exercise. This can include activities such as walking, gardening, and even fidgeting. NEAT activity can be an important contributor to overall energy expenditure and weight management.

NEAT activity works by increasing our daily energy expenditure, or the number of calories we burn in a day. Even small changes in NEAT activity, such as standing more often or taking the stairs instead of the elevator, can add up to a significant increase in energy expenditure over time. This is important because the number of calories we burn in a day determines whether we gain, lose, or maintain weight.

One way NEAT activity works is by increasing our basal metabolic rate (BMR). BMR is the number of calories we burn at rest, or the energy our bodies need to perform basic functions like breathing, circulating blood, and maintaining body temperature. By engaging in NEAT activities throughout the day, we can increase our BMR and burn more calories even when we are not actively exercising.

NEAT activity can also help to offset the negative effects of a sedentary lifestyle. Studies have shown that prolonged sitting is associated with an increased risk of health problems such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. By incorporating more NEAT activities into our daily routine, we can reduce the amount of time we spend sitting and improve our overall health.

Some examples of NEAT activities include taking a walk during lunch, standing up and stretching every hour, or doing household chores like vacuuming or washing dishes. Even small changes like these can add up to a significant increase in energy expenditure over time.

In conclusion, NEAT activity is an important way to increase daily energy expenditure and promote weight management. By incorporating more movement into our daily routines, we can increase our basal metabolic rate and offset the negative effects of a sedentary lifestyle. Simple changes like taking the stairs instead of the elevator or doing household chores can make a big difference in overall health and well-being.
