Move A Little, Lose A Lot
New NEAT Science Reveals How to Be Thinner, Happier, and SmarterBook - 2009
Obesity specialist Dr. Levine says America suffers from "sitting disease"--the age of electronics has left us less active, by up to 2,000 daily calories, than we were thirty years ago. What we need, he says, is to get moving, or nonexercise activity thermogenesis (NEAT). NEAT is as simple as standing, turning, and bending. Research shows that daily NEAT activity burns more calories than an hour on a treadmill, and can boost metabolism, lower blood pressure, and increase mental clarity. Dr. Levine provides literal step-by-step instructions for small changes that equal radical results. With an eight-week movement and eating plan and a fifty-food NEAT calorie counter, this book is a lasting prescription for a more vibrant and healthy life.--From publisher description.
