Episode 185 – You Are What You N.E.A.T.

You know that exercise is important, but did you also know that NON-Exercise is possibly more important?  The formula of exercising for 30 minutes a day — or even for an hour or two — and then sitting the rest of the time, may add up to doing more harm than good.  This week, the WOLT couple talk about the benefits of all your movement and how to make it a part of your entire day.  Plus, Donald gets sent into a rage spiral, Catherine eats all the watermelon, and Looking like a Muppet is an added benefit.
