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.

The diet and exercise plan in this book is VERY regimented. It would be very difficult for someone to follow this plan. I felt overwhelmed reading this book .

lots of 'calories burned' calculations in this book.
the author is a big fan of building more physical work into daily activity (rather than going to the gym)
turn off the remote; open your own garage door; take the stairs etc.

he also discussed treadmill desks--I like this idea. but alas, alack, i do not have the coins for this...also too noisy for some office settings. and yet for some it could be a wonderful option.....
happy birthday to me? ;)
