Simple Ways to Lose Weight Without Spending Money: Incorporating NEAT

Updated: 3 days ago

Are you looking for effective, free ways to lose weight? Bryce and his wife, dietitian and trainer, reveal how incorporating NEAT (Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis) into your daily routine can help you burn extra calories and achieve weight loss without spending any money. Check out the video below to learn more!

What is NEAT?

NEAT stands for Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis, which includes all the physical activities you do outside of planned exercise. It involves everyday movements such as walking, gardening, doing yard work, or even standing instead of sitting. Increasing NEAT can significantly contribute to weight loss by helping you burn additional calories throughout the day.

Simple Tips to Increase Your NEAT

1. Walk More:

  • Start by adding more steps to your day. Aiming for an extra 25-30 minutes of walking can add 4,000 to 5,000 steps, significantly boosting your daily activity level.

  • Track your steps using a phone or a simple pedometer to understand your baseline and gradually increase your daily steps.

2. Choose Efficiency Over Convenience:

  • Park further away from your destination to add extra steps.

  • Opt for carrying a basket instead of pushing a cart while grocery shopping. This not only helps in burning more calories but also prevents overspending.

3. Incorporate Movement into Daily Routines:

  • Use a standing desk or sit on an exercise ball to engage your core while working.

  • Take frequent breaks to walk around or do simple stretches.

  • Play more actively with your kids. Engage in activities like playing ball or visiting the park, turning family time into an opportunity to move more.

4. Household Chores and Gardening:

  • Cleaning and gardening are excellent ways to increase your NEAT. These activities involve various movements and can be done while listening to your favorite podcast or music, making them enjoyable and productive.

5. Blend Family Time with Exercise:

  • Combining exercise with family activities not only helps you stay active but also creates a more engaging and enjoyable experience for everyone. Activities like playing at the park, going for family walks, or playing games like Pokémon Go can motivate you and your family to move more.

You don’t need a gym membership or expensive equipment to start your weight loss journey. By incorporating NEAT activities into your daily routine, you can burn extra calories and improve your overall health without spending a dime. Start with small changes, track your progress, and gradually increase your activity level to see significant results.
