For many, losing weight means one thing above all: hard work and a lot of discipline! You just do not have time or desire (or both…) to go to the fitness center? Never mind, because even with seemingly little things you can burn more calories.
Tip 1: Chewing Gum
Chewing gum lovers are at an advantage because on average you eat up to 10 percent less than others. By the way, chewing gum burns about 11 calories per hour.
Tip 2: Laugh a Lot
Studies have shown that 10 to 15 minutes of laughter per day burns about 40 calories.
Tip 3: Drink Coffee
After drinking caffeine, calorie consumption is stimulated for up to three hours. If you don’t like coffee, you can also turn to green tea or
reach for. The latter can rival any strong coffee in terms of caffeine content!
Tip 4: Eat Spicy Food
Visit the Thai restaurant around the corner again, because studies have shown that spicy food boosts the metabolism and you even burn 50 calories more per day thanks to the spices.
Tip 5: Be Jittery
Are you also one of those people who can never really sit still and are constantly bouncing your foot? Good thing, because this burns up to 300 extra calories a day! Extra tip: Replace your office chair with a sitting ball, because this means you have to unconsciously stabilize your body all day long.
Tip 6: Keep Calm
Although most people assume the opposite, the fact is that stressed people burn around 100 calories less than those who are relaxed!
Tip 7: Adjust The Room Temperature
By now, many people know that an overly heated apartment is unhealthy. What most don’t know: Japanese scientists have found that people who stay in constantly well-heated rooms have a harder time losing weight. Those who stay in rooms with only 17 to 18 degrees have lower body fat values.
