One simple hack to lose fat faster!

Fat Loss
By Sheikh Najid

Let's assume you are eating everything as per your planned diet chart and giving your best at the gym. Is there anything else you can do to improve your fat loss process? Well, YES! All you need to do is increase your daily activity and keep up with the activities you are performing at the gym already. This technique is known as NEAT (Non-exercise Activity Thermogenesis) and is usually ignored by many people who are trying to lose fat. They eat right and train really hard at the gym but end up ignoring other physical activities. There are certain things that contribute to the total energy burnt by your body in a day. Let’s have a look at this equation below – TDEE = BMR + EAT + TEF + NEAT TDEE – Total daily energy expenditure BMR – Basal metabolic rate EAT – Exercise activity thermogenesis TEF – Thermic effect of food NEAT – Non-exercise activity thermogenesis. This shows that if you increase any of the things mentioned on the right-hand side of the equation, you will burn more energy, and thus lose fat. Apart from NEAT, the rest can be taken care of through diet and training. But the focus should remain on increasing NEAT as it makes a significant difference in TDEE. If your daily routine doesn't involve moving around much, then move intentionally to compensate for the low TDEE. Several studies are in favour of increasing the NEAT for fat loss. So, let's make some changes in our lifestyle to do so. Wondering how to compensate for your low NEAT? The solution is very simple. Just increase the number of steps you take every day and ensure that you do so as much as you can. On a call? Walk! Take the stairs instead of the lift or take multiple short breaks to walk around the place. Walk down to a grocery store rather than shopping for groceries online. You can use the FITTR app or any other app of your choice to track your steps. Let's resolve to walk 10k steps daily and unlike most new year resolutions, let's make this one a reality. Shall we?
