    Healthier You Presentation - The NEAT Part of Exercise

    By now we all know we need to exercise for good health. But did you know that simple activity is just as important? In fact, simple activity (the almost trivial type you’re barely aware you’re doing!) increases metabolic rate leading to weight loss and maintenance. Isn’t that NEAT? Brad Awalt, MS, ACSM and Bridgette Butler, MS, RDN, LDN of Health Plus present the “whys” and “how-to’s” of Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis (N.E.A.T), including how you can develop an individual plan to increase your NEAT activities to help promote health.
