The first factor that we consider is our BMR – that’s our Basal Metabolic Rate. These are the calories that our body requires just to function. The more lean muscle tissue on your body, generally the greater this calorie burn is.
Secondly, we have calories burnt through exercise. These are the calories our body uses to convert energy to work out, so the calories that we burn during our HIIT workouts with BEAN Lite for example.
Finally we have the calories we burn through N.E.A.T. This crafty calorie burn can be a real winner and is easy to increase! N.E.A.T stands for Non Exercise Activity Thermogenesis – the calories that we burn doing everything that isn’t bodily functions or exercise… so walking, fidgeting, tapping our foot, standing up, basically any kind of bodily movement.
N.E.A.T can be the key to successful fat burning and weight loss, as simply increasing the amount that you move during the day can help towards creating a greater calorie deficit!
