In 2002, Dr. James Levine with the Mayo Clinic introduced his research on the beneﬁts of non-exercise activity thermogenesis, or NEAT. Levine evaluated the difference between people who move a lot each day (even the smallest movement counts) and those who are innately more still. Levine was the ﬁrst to quantify that a person who is in motion from ﬁdgeting to major muscle group movement can burn up to 350 more calories per day than a person who doesn’t. Levine’s ongoing research has shown that people who move more are able to not only maintain a healthier weight, but are also healthier in general. Add something NEAT to your day.
