NEAT • What is NEAT? • Non Exercise Activity Thermogenesis • The energy expended from your daily activities that is not induced from eating or exercise. • Walking • Many of us spend 8-12 hours per day in a chair at a desk • Couple this with 6-8 hours per night sleeping • Some people commute 1-2 hours per day to and from work • Blood sugar and blood fats rise
