NEAT - Non Exercise Activity Thermagenesis
Have you heard of it before? I hadn't but I think it's really cool. Apparently NEAT is responsible for things like fidgeting, feet tapping, frequent hand moving and changing positions. You can burn several hundred calories a day without even thinking about it!
"NEAT increases with overfeeding and decreases with underfeeding. Thus, NEAT could be a critical component in how we maintain our body weight and/or develop obesity or lose weight. The mechanism that regulates NEAT is unknown."www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12468415
