How To Burn Fat Through N.E.A.T

Let’s Talk About Fat Burning Through N.E.AT – Non Exercise Activity Thermogenesis 🔥

This weekend I went walking twice, and I managed to hit 10km each morning. I got a new Fitbit watch and was quite excited about using it.
These brisk walks made up about 12,500 steps per day.

On a normal day, I hardly hit 3000 steps because I work a sedentary desk job.

As much as I go to the gym, I’m making a conscious effort to increase my NEAT each day.

NEAT refers to how many calories you burn a day that is not exercise, but through the activities of daily living. This can represent between 15-50% of your total daily energy expenditure (TDEE).

NEAT is a primary factor that influences your ability to gain or lose weight.

Take a look at these Examples of NEAT

🚶🏽‍♀️Walking (This contributes to the majority of NEAT)

🚶🏽‍♀️Standing

🧎🏾‍♀️Sitting

🚶🏽‍♀️Fidgeting

🚶🏽‍♀️Shopping

🚶🏽‍♀️Cleaning

Does it really make a difference?

Studies have shown there is a difference of around 120 calories per hour burned between someone resting and somebody walking at 2 kilometers per hour.

(Keep in mind that a tortoise 🐢 has an average walking speed of 0.2–0.5 km/h!)

You times this by a typical 8 hour work day.120 x 8= 960 calorie difference in calories burnt.

Just by having a more active lifestyle you can burn a lot more calories each day and help with fat loss and overall health.

How to Track Your N.E.A.T

Tracking your activity by using your phone or a Fitbit, forces you to be constantly aware of your activity levels.

Ways to Increase N.E.A.T?

1️⃣ WALK MORE; To work, at lunch, to the shop etc…

2️⃣ Take the stairs
