NEAT calories

I was tricked! On one of my email lists, there was a mention of the "Couch Potato Gene" so I investigated. In hindsight, indeed it didn't say "Couch Potato Gene Bob" so I shouldn't have been alarmed.

Biology May Keep Couch Potatoes Supine also introduced me to a new acronym: NEAT (Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis) which are "the calories we burn in all our normal daily activities".

NEAT calories, eh? Hmmm. Gotta burn some more of those. I've been able to hold my weight (after losing 90 pounds or so) but would like to drop another 20 as a target weight.
