Cumulative exercise throughout the day contributes to weight
loss in significant ways. Science supports a concept called NEAT-non-exercise
activity thermogenesis-the number of calories we burn when we’re not eating,
sleeping, or doing sustained exercise. NEAT includes every movement you make,
from momentary activities like bending over to tie your shoes and gesturing
during conversations to conscious activities like walking a few more blocks and
taking the stairs instead of the escalator/elevator.
I've been wearing loafers less often lately and untying/tying my shoes a lot. I think I've might have dropped a 1/2 pound already!
