What is Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis Exercise is not enough. In fact, when it comes to exercising, you are overemphasizing its importance on fat loss and body composition. Despite the social capital you receive for the blood, sweat, and tears of grueling workouts, these brutal sessions can be detrimental to you reaching your goals. Wouldn’t it be great if you could spend less time in the gym, more time doing leisure activities, and lose fat faster? This flies in the face of conventional wisdom. TV commercials, Facebook Ads, and elite athletes lead you to believe the only way to achieve your goals is to train 24/7. Those hours on the gym floor should be a near death experience and we all know the only way to finish a good workout is laying on your back, praying you don’t throw up, while the rest of class cleans up their equipment. In reality, cutting your grass, vacuuming your house, and going for a walk is equally beneficial for fat loss as your 1-hour HIIT class. Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis (NEAT) is the sum total of all activity in your day that is not sleeping, eating, or training. Yes, training, and training hard is important, however, it is impossible to keep that intensity throughout the day and overtraining can be detrimental to achieving your goals. Think of your body as a high performance vehicle. Hitting the gas and flooring it (High Intensity Exercise) sounds cool in the short term but a terrible decision for long term performance. You burn a lot of gas but things are going to break down quickly. NEAT is the slow burn, keeping the engine revved all day, burning fuel at a steady pace, all day, without the exploding engine. Waking up 10 minute early and completing the Diesel Dad 100. Pacing while you talk on the phone. Going for walks with your family. Fidgeting, not sitting still, and looking forward to “Non-Exercise” just as much as training time.. This is the beauty of the Diesel Dad Diet. Your body will be a furnace that burns fat around the clock without spending countless hours in the gym You will build more muscle. Burn more fat. Eliminate the crippling confusion about your metabolism. Stop feeling slow, soft, and sluggish.
