The Science Behind the Solution
Research has identified a lack of NEAT activity as a primary contributor to weight gain, and could be the key to reversing America’s obesity epidemic.
Dr. Levine’s 10-year research program analyzed the links between activity, energy expenditure, and obesity.
The striking results of the study indicated that, more than diet, exercise or any other factor, basic daily activity – or NEAT – is the single most important element of maintaining healthy body weight. The irony is that basic daily activity is the one element that has largely disappeared from U.S. culture.
According to Dr. Levine, our technological advances and lifestyle “efficiencies” have led us to become a largely sedentary society. More and more people have been “desk-sentenced” (with jobs that keep us sitting down at our desks for long periods of time), and more of us sit while we do many of our daily life activities: traveling to work, spending evenings at home, even getting together with friends and family.
But while all of this sitting has had an alarming effect on our nation’s (and the world’s) obesity levels, Dr. Levine’s research has shown that combating the obesity epidemic could be as simple as adding a couple extra hours of basic non-exercise types of movement to our lives every day: standing up regularly, walking around a little more, taking the stairs, even doing things like hand-washing our dishes or getting out to do yard work more often.
Dr. Levine has become so passionate about his findings that he has made it his life’s purpose to carry the message to the world. He co-founded Muve, Inc. to help him do just that.
