Many of you would love to burn a few extra calories out of the gym so that you can eat more and still keep a healthy weight or lose a few extra pounds. There really are a handful of ways to increase your energy expenditure (without going to the gym). Especially these five that have been chosen are the most effortless and seamless for you to implement them into your everyday life, helping you burn a few extra calories to over a couple 100 extra calories depending on how long and often you do them in your day.
Drink Black Coffee
Coffee contains zero calories and only when you add all the sugar/cream containing 100 and upwards of 500 calories is when it becomes bad for you. It has been proven that caffeine increases the speed at which you burn calories and suppresses your hunger for longer so that you will eat less during the day.
Take The Stairs
Instead of using the elevator, take the stairs because each flight of stairs you climb you will burn around 5-20 calories depending on your weight. So if you walk up and down at least 10 flights of stairs a day that’s already an extra 100-400 calories burned.
Drink More Water
Drinking more water is probably one of the most effective things you can do since 60% of the human body is water. Being dehydrated will cause your metabolism to drop, a German study showed that drinking more water throughout the day will increase your metabolism by around 30%. Try to always keep a water bottle on you so that you can refill it whenever you are thirsty.
Perhaps your parents have drilled into you that fidgeting is a bad habit so you don’t do it anymore, but studies have shown that someone who fidgets more can actually burn up to 350 more calories a day than someone who remains idle. For example, tap your fingers or shake your legs while you’re sitting because it helps you burn calories !
Walk 15 Minutes Longer
This is very simple and will probably save you some money aswell, e.g. if you take public transport or drive to wherever you are going then get off 1-2 stops earlier or park further away. This will mean that you are gonna have to walk the rest of the way to your destination no matter what. Furthermore you will save money because less gas will be needed since your driving less and your tickets will be cheaper since you aren’t travelling as far with public transport.
