Guys Who Eat a Lot But Are Lean

Yesterday I wrote an article about the idea that you probably need to walk more.

If you missed it, here’s the link:

You’re Not Walking Enough

One thing I meant to talk about was NEAT (Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis).

This is physical movement in our lives that isn’t planned exercise.

Cooking, cleaning, gardening, fidgeting, etc.

People who eat a lot but tend to stay lean typically get more active as they eat more.

It’s almost a reflex.

Take male model David Gandy for instance.

*Shown here rocking Kinobody Orange swim trunks.

I read this in a recent interview.

“I probably eat more than most people think I might, but I’m actually a foodie, and I eat a lot.”

I’m willing to bet he isn’t the type of guy who can sit still.

I can relate.

When I was a kid waiting to get picked up from school…

I’d pace around the whole time.

Other kids would just sit down and chill.

My friends would be like, “Yo, chill. Sit down”.

I’d just be walking back and forth for 20 minutes until my ride came, and I was ridiculously lean because I literally hated sitting still.

This is a common trait with lean people.

Brad Pitt’s character in Fight Club is a prime example of this.

*A scene that stands out is when Brad is riding a bike inside his house while conversing with Ed Norton.

NEAT can burn a lot of extra calories.

According to the Mayo Clinic, NEAT can account for 100 to 800 calories per day.

So someone with a naturally high level of NEAT can burn 600-700 calories more per day than a sedentary individual.

This is a f*ckn HUGE difference.

This is like getting an extra session of walking in each day.

If you walk in addition to this, is when you get shredded.

High activity levels with a reasonable deficit from diet is where the magic happens.

James is a prime example…

*James is in his 50s and went from 209 to 185 (24 pounds of fat loss) in just three and a half months.

He did this by following Movie Star Masterclass.

Brief workouts + dialed-in diet + plenty of walking.

In his words.

“Currently 185 lbs down from 209 lbs. Started January 1st.
150g protein / day. 2100 calories with 600 calorie deficit on a 2700 calorie maintenance calculated on 180 lb target weight.
The results are unreal.”

Frickin incredible results.

Let’s get back to NEAT.

I recommend whenever possible to walk and move around throughout your day.

If you are doing something seated that can be done standing?


If you are standing but are able to walk around while accomplishing a task?

Pace around.

If you make a habit of increasing your movement.

Weight loss will not be a problem for you.
