NEAT WAYS TO BURN CALORIES

Posted: 03.23.2016
Non-exercise activity thermogenesis (NEAT) is calories burned while doing common daily activities such as walking, climbing stairs, pacing, fidgeting, etc. that are not related to structured exercise. Studies show that increasing your NEAT can play a part in helping to maintain a healthy weight along with a healthy diet and regular exercise. NEAT movements can burn up to an extra 300 to 700 calories a day. To increase your NEAT, take the stairs, park farther from your destination, pace or stand up while talking on the phone, take a walking coffee break, walk to lunch, clean your house, walk the dog more, etc.
