The way to a slender figure does not begin with a fitness club membership, but with small and useful habits for your body. We found 15 ways that can help you to easily get rid of a couple of extra pounds.
1. Chew the chewing gum
In addition to fresh breath and mouth hygiene, chewing gum helps lose 11 kilocalories every 12 minutes. Trifle, yet nice.
2. Repair your car
Learning to understand why your iron horse periodically makes strange sounds is useful not only for your wallet, but also for your figure:
3. Cooking food and serving the table
It turns out that preparations for a meal are very important. During this time, namely in 45 minutes, if you try, you can burn 102 kilocalories, which means that you can afford a little more for dinner.
4. Walk during a telephone conversation
If you thought it was a bad habit, then you should know that you were wrong. It might irritate someone, but walking from side to side with the phone in your hand is more than useful. Especially talkative ones will lose 100 kilocalories in 25 minutes.
Yes, yes, laughter not only prolongs your life, but also helps you slim. Viewing a sitcom or a walk to the hilarious stories of girlfriends – everything that makes you laugh is useful. According to recent studies, the average adult loses one and a half kilocalories per minute of giggling.
6. Walk in the morning
Before you sit down for breakfast, walk the dog, go down to the store for fresh milk, or walk around your house, at least. Such promenade will give you a charge of vivacity, prepare your body for a working day and trigger your metabolism, which means that your breakfast will not accumulate on your sides. 20 minutes walk, and you can forget about 100 kilocalories.
7. Walk the stairs
Even though the elevator will shorten the travel time from point A to point B, but it certainly will not make your body slimmer. You can burn 7 to 10 kilocalories while going up, and half less, when you go down the stairs.
8. Pepper your food
Heat in your mouth, tears in your eyes – do not be afraid of these consequences of spicy food. After all, you will get an accelerated metabolism in return, as well as a body that is ready to burn calories twice as fast as usual.
In just about 15 minutes, you can burn about 105 kilocalories. Imagine what your figure will look like, if you turn bicycle walks on weekends into a habit.
10. Go fishing
If your man, friend or father likes to spend weekends with a fishing rod, make them a company. This will help you not only to strengthen your relationship with your dear person (after all, nothing else fosters heart-to-heart talks, like long-term sitting on the shore), but also say goodbye to a hundred kilocalories in 25 minutes.
11. Play Frisbee
Popular in recent times, this game is great for diversifying your leisure activities on the beach and during city walks in the park. Together with the flying saucer 102 kilocalories will also fly away in 30 minutes of the game.
12. Take care of your garden
As the autumn arrives, work in the garden becomes never-ending. Cleaning leaves, picking apples, scooping flowers – all these will not only transform your garden, but give you a bonus of at least 113 kilocalories lost in 25 minutes.
13. Jump rope
It’s time again to get on with old stuff, because there are 110 kilocalories at stake for every 10 minutes of pleasure.
14. Play ping-pong
Two rackets, a table and a ball are now available in almost every park. Do not miss the opportunity to spend a day in the air, until the city gets flooded with rain. Playing will be doubly more fun, if you know that flapping your racket for 25 minutes will help you remove 113 kilocalories.
Who said that you need to move to burn calories? It’s enough just to relax and breathe deeply. By saturating your body with oxygen, you not only relax, but also give it energy for increased calorie burning.
