    In a recent BBC Horizon program, "The truth about exercise", Dr Michael Mosley further investigated the effects of NEAT on individuals with different jobs and lifestyles. Using specially designed GPS monitors (fidget pants) the show concluded that even small changes to lifestyle can make a huge difference to the amount of energy expended during the course of a single day. Repeating the mantra "the chair is a killer, the chair is a killer" Mosley started cycling to work, having walking meetings, standing up to type and taking the stairs rather than the elevator. The fidget pants showed that he was burning up to 500 calories more each day - the same as attending a bootcamp. So of you would like to do a bootcamp without actually breaking into a sweat, get NEAT!

    Ways to increase your neat could be walking to work, getting off a stop early and walking the rest of the way, parking a bit further from your destination, sitting down for less time, having meetings walking and pacing up and down the office while on the phone (studies show that this also increases confidence and is a often used tool of sales people). Strength training will also increase NEAT, as small, non-exercise related movements will burn more calories if they are having to utlise more lean muscle.

    Finding the motivation to lose fat should be easy. Nearly 2/3 of Americans are considered overweight or obese. The side effects of carrying extra fat have been well documented: side effects such as heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, etc. Let us not forget about the psychological effects that can be associated with being overweight or obese. Such as low self esteem, decrease sex appeal and decreased libido. So how does one find the motivation to lose fat? It starts with two choices. 1. A choice to commit to making healthier choices. 2. A choice to be consistent.

    Let me be more specific. It starts with YOU making the two choices.

In fact I am sure if I asked, you could easily name 5 or more methods of losing fat. So it is not a lack of knowledge that is holding anyone back. So, what is holding them back? Fear!

The goals need to be realistic. Start the journey towards losing fat by setting up realistic goals. And take action. Take that first step. Start with the easiest goal and proceed.
