Heart Rate for NEPA Activity?


Chris, I was just curious if there’s some target HR to aim for (or avoid crossing) for the NEPA. I just started the V-Diet yesterday. I did 30 minutes at 4mph and a 2 incline on a treadmill and my HR never went over 110. I’m 6’4", so I’m wondering if I should increase the pace/incline.


There’s absolutely no need to try to measure heart rate. The “fat burning zone” is an old myth. And most treadmills are inaccurate anyone with those measurements.

NEPA is just moving around that’s part of daily life.

NEPA walks should simply be fast walks. You’re not getting out of breath, but perhaps breathing slightly harder than normal walking.
