Easy Diet Plans-How to Use The NEAT Trick To Burn a Lot More Fat

I was just reading an email from Tom Venuto, one of my favorite weight and fat loss mentors. He was talking about something I think all of those who are looking for easy diet plans to follow will love!

Tom was discussing how it does take a lot of discipline and effort, especially in the nutrition area, to achieve your weight and fat loss goals. But, the good news is that if you use the NEAT trick, you can burn a LOT more fat. Its so simple that any of us can do it! Even better, it doesn't cost you any  money!

Tom Venuto says that:

"This is FAR more impactful than most people think and it's beyond surprising-
it's SHOCKING to most people who aren't already hip to this trick (like the
people who use certain electronic devices).

Do you think the biggest difference between different people's fat loss results
is their metabolism? WRONG!

Do you think the difference in people's results is the intensity and effort
level and "insane" or "hardcore" workouts they use?  WRONG AGAIN!
This easy neat trick is THE reason there is such a huge difference in the
total daily calories burned from person to person and the thing is, most
people AREN'T hip to this yet - its totally off their radar!

When people start tracking this and adding it up, it's often the most
shocking revelation of their entire health and fitness journey or career
and leads to almost effortless extra fat loss".

Effortless fat loss? I'm loving the sound of it already! Here is a brief excerpt from the article by Tom:

NEAT Tricks For Burning More Fat: A Brief Introduction to Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis by Tom Venuto

Researchers say that NEAT, which is all the calories you burn every day outside your formal exercise session, is the reason there is so much difference between individuals in total daily calorie expenditure. Dr. James Levine, an endocrinologist and the top researcher in the field says, “Obese people are profoundly more sedentary than lean people. They move 2.5 hours less per day than lean people, which means they burn roughly 350 fewer calories per day.”

NEAT includes all your physical activity throughout the day, excluding your “formal” workouts. This includes all the calories you burn from casual walking, shopping, yard work, housework, standing, pacing and even little things like talking, chewing, changing posture and fidgeting.

For most people, NEAT accounts for about 30% of physical activity calories spent daily, but NEAT can run as low as 15% in sedentary individuals and as high as 50% in highly active individuals.
Walking contributes to the majority of NEAT. Obviously, the type of work you do is a major influence on NEAT. If you work at a desk all day long and hardly get up, your NEAT level is low. If you deliver mail, or work any other type of physical job, your NEAT can be quite high.

The fact that most people sit all day long and surf the web, watch TV and play video games is not a minor factor in the obesity problem. We have become a desk-bound, technology-based society. 150 years ago, 90% of the world’s population worked in agriculture or did some type of physical labor to earn a living.
