Part 1: The Energy Balance Equation- Fat Loss
- EAT – Exercise Activity Thermogenesis. This is the calculation of all the energy burnt during scheduled exercise like weight training, cardio, etc.
- NEAT – Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis. These are all things that we don’t consider exercise like walking upstairs, fidgeting, cooking your food, facial expressions and moving during the day for work related tasks. It can often be hard to define, but can make up anywhere from 15-50% of total energy expenditure (which is why we recommend daily step targets, as explained here).

How To Make The Energy Balance Work For Fat Loss
- We can increase the factors on the right side by increasing physical activity, and ensuring that we’re reaching a protein target (around 0.8-1g/lb) for the benefit of TEF.
- We can lighten the load from energy intake on the left side of the scales by eating and drinking less energy.
