Lets get to the essential part now, namely how to lose more calories without this being our main purpose?
Rule # 1- Use the stairs. No matter whether you use the stairs in the building you live or at the place where you work, it is always an advantage if you take the stairs instead of the elevator. There
are thousands of different ways to climb up and go down the stairs so that you are never bored and most importantly lose some extra weight. You can take 2-3 stairs at a time; you can jump, skip a few
stairs, climb sidewise, or simply do a little run up the stairs.
Rule # 2- Set your alarm 10 minutes earlier. Waking up and doing a short series of morning exercises will get you far. It will not only accelerate your blood circulation and warm up your muscles, but
it will also charge your batteries for the whole day. Make sure you complete at least 3 different exercises with 15-20 repetitions each. Only after you are done you can go ahead and have breakfast.
Burning calories before you have your first meal is much more effective for your body than burning calories late at night after you have already consumed a lot of food.
Rule # 3- Choose the longest route possible. Wherever you go to work, home, to the store, and etc., always take the longest road. You either way have to get where you want so why not actually burn
some calories while you are doing that? Put it in your mind that there are no shortcuts to your destination (from:
If you need to drive in order to get there, try to always park at the furthest location possible so that you can at least walk for a bit.
Rule # 4- Sleep naked at night. When your body feels cold it burns more calories in order to warm itself. If you want to burn even more, you can simply keep the air conditioning on all the time.
However, I recommend that you to keep the air on during the day when you are awake and can control it constantly. Falling asleep while the cold air is blowing in your face can really make you very
sick. However, some people love sleeping with the air on and some don?t. It is up to you what you decide, but remember that the most important is that you are healthy.
Rule # 5- Dress up warm while working out. Some of you might say hmmm, why is it better that I sleep without clothes but at the same time I need to put more clothes on while working out? Yeah, it is
very strange, but it is a fact that sleeping without clothes and working out with more clothes have an equal positive effect when it comes to burning calories. The more you sweat during active
physical exercising, the more effort your body needs to make to get you back to your normal body temperature. That is the main reason why you tend to burn more calories when you are dressed
Rule # 6 - Burning calories in front of the TV. Do you enjoy watching TV shows? I am sure you do. Do not forget that during each show there are plenty of commercials a few minutes each. During that
time you need to get up from the couch and do a few exercises. You can do jumping jacks, pushups, crunches, or simply stretching exercises. The choice is all yours. You will be amazed how these
couple of exercises can really make you mood and body feel better.
Rule # 7- Buy a pedometer (a step counter). You can wrap this little device either around your wrist or around your waist and it will automatically start counting the steps you make. In this way you
can keep track of how many steps per day you make walking or running. Once you know how many steps you make on a regular day, then you can start increasing this number by a little every day. You can
even turn it into a game where you need to make more and more steps each day in order to win.
Rule # 8 - Start walking faster. If it usually takes you 15 minutes walking to get to the gym or somewhere else, try to shorten the time to 10 minutes. You can even rotate by walking 2 minutes fast
and 2 minutes slow and so on. This way of walk will accelerate your heart rate and therefore it will be easier to burn additional calories.
Rule # 9- Chew gum. It might really sound crazy to you but every time you chew gum you burn calories. Scientists have found that you can burn 12 calories for every 1 hour of chewing gum. It is not a
lot but it?s really something. Additionally while chewing gum you produce extra saliva which helps clean your gums and teeth as well. Well, as you can see there are many creative ways of losing some
extra weight without putting any effort in them.
