Don’t compare yourself with someone else’s version of happy or thin. Accepting yourself burns the most calories.
Burning calories without much effort is something most of the people dream about. Working out is fun, but when it is with a mission to burn calories and loose those extra pounds, it can get on your nerves with the hectic regimes. But, what is someone told you that you can shed weight by fidgeting as much as you lose by running? You will probably not believe.
Here are 5 weird things that make you loose significant amount of weight.
1 – Fidgeting – 350 Calories A Day
Probably after knowing that tapping your foot, or shaking your leg can make you loose wight, you won’t be annoyed with it anymore. Many studies have shown that fidgeting the whole day can make you burn 10 times more calories, and one study claimed 350 calories per day, enough to lose 30 to 40 pounds in one year.
2 – Drinking Green Tea – 183 Calories A Day
Most of you who are health conscious, will agree to this fact that, drinking multiple glasses of green tea a day, helps you reduce weight. In a study on obese Thai men, it was found that those who drank green tea burned on average 183 more calories a day than those who did not. Experts claim that the polyphenols in green tea act as antioxidants and help in weight reduction.
3 – Sweating It Out – 200-600 Calories In 30 Minutes
Like how a Sauna bath, steam bath, or hot bath makes you burn calories, in the same way, if you wrap yourself up in an infrared blanket and sweat doing nothing, it will make you loose weight. An infrared sweat lodge in Los Angeles, claims you can burn anywhere between 800 and 1,600 calories during a single 55-minute session. Experts claim that this mostly happens due to depletion of water from the body, but you can’t tell exactly how much weight loss is possible.
4 – Cleaning Your House – 100 Calories An Hour
Who likes to mop the floors, load the dishwasher, scrub the tub, and do little household activities? But if someone told you, that it can help in weight loss, won’t you happily do it instead of bracing your shoe laces and going out running? Apparently it is claimed that washing and drying a full sink of dishes for an hour can burn 100 calories. Or, if you are cleaning every surface in your bathroom for 35 minutes, it is equal to working out that much time on a treadmill. But, this nowhere means, you can replace it with your work out regime.
5 – Hot Bath – About 140 Calories In 30 Minutes
How cool is it to take a hot bath and loose weight at the same time! A study revealed that from the people, who cycle for an hour versus the people who lounged in a hot bath tub, for the same amount of time, more calories were burnt of the cyclists, but those who took a hot bath, burnt calories equivalent of taking a 30-minute walk—about 140 calories.
