Get Into the Non-Exercise Activity Groove

I recently read a story in Nutrition Action Health Letter about a professor by the name of James Levine who is doing research about obesity. His findings show that a person can help prevent the build-up of fat cells in their body by doing what he calls non-exercise activity. It essentially means getting off the couch or your office chair and moving around while doing tasks. It can be as simple as standing up and walking around while on the phone or moving and grooving to your favorite tunes while cooking (my personal favorite). It can’t replace the benefits of daily exercise but it’s a super simple way to burn a few unwanted calories. He even has an electronic device that can measure the benefits of this type of non-exercise activity. It’s called The Groove.
