Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis( NEAT)

NEAT includes the physical movement in our lives that isn't planned exercise or sports (or sleeping, breathing, and eating).We gain weight, NEAT tends to rise; whereas when we lose weight, NEAT often plummets, and people end up sitting more without moving as much. If you are waiting in line or sitting stuck in traffic, find small ways to move. It may not burn as many calories as going for a jog, but even tapping your foot or bobbing your head helps your body take advantage of NEAT. Make conscious decisions to move and use your body more. If you are going food shopping, carry a basket instead of using a cart. At the mall? Take the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator.
