Losing weight doesn’t have to be a major undertaking. We found 7 easy ways to burn calories that don’t require a trip to fitness boot camp.
1. Cut a rug
No, not literally. Invite some pals over, turn on some tunes, and have an impromptu dance party. We know you haven’t forgotten the Macarena, and just a half-hour of dancing meets your calories-burned goal.
If you feel inspired by the music, turn it into a weekly dance-inspired workout session.
2. Say ahh
Give your honey an end-of-the-day massage for 42 minutes and you’ll burn around 200 calories. Not to mention all of the other health benefits you get from a massage.
3. Move things around
Liven up the layout of your favorite room with 30 minutes of furniture rearranging. Move your bed closer to a window, or push your reading chair into that warm patch of sunlight on the floor.
But be warned: Once you start, you may want to rearrange the rest of your house.
4. Hit the bull’s-eye
Darts is one of those bar games you always see but are too nervous to actually play.
Boost your confidence by telling a couple witty bar jokes your friends are guaranteed to laugh at, and then spend 1 hour and 10 minutes playing a friendly game of darts at your favorite watering hole.
5. Makeover your casa
Rolling on a new coat of paint burns 204 calories an hour. Give your living room a fresh hue—just make sure it’s the right color. For instance, a soft shade of orange gives off a warm, inviting tone.
Cleaning may seem like a chore—OK, it is a chore. But that doesn’t mean it has to be boring.
Turn up your favorite playlist, then get down to it: vacuum, sweep the patio, dust, and straighten up. The added bonus? You’ll torch at least 200 calories.
7. Hit the market
As long as you never buy any of these foods again, grocery shopping can be a lot healthier than you think. Buy the groceries (45 minutes of cart-pushing burns 117 calories), carry them inside (5 minutes of schlepping them up stairs burns 43), and put them away (40 calories in 14 minutes).
One last thing… you should try this odd “carb trick” that burns up to 1 pound of belly fat per day…
“All this by Flavor-Pairing?” I asked.
I met an old friend for lunch last month and I was super impressed with how good she looked.
She said, “It’s not so much about the Flavor-Pairing, but more about how it re-awakens what the Japanese call, ‘the weight loss doubling molecule’ which signals 22-hour a day fat-burning effect in the female body.”
Even though I was skeptical, I’ve been struggling with my weight over the last few years, so I gave it a shot and watched the same video she did.
Well, it’s only a couple weeks later and you know what they say about how “you can’t transform your body overnight”…
They’re right – it actually took me 16 days to lose 22 pounds.
Now it’s my girlfriends asking ME what I’M doing differently 💅
