How to Burn 200 Calories Without Noticing!
In a weight loss rut? Or do you just want to start your weight loss? Try this awesome ways to burn up to 200 calories at a time!
1. Walk everywhere
walking for 40 minutes at a pace of three miles per hour burns 200 calories. Calculate how many calories you burn from walking here!
2. Have a stair-ing contest
a 150 to 160-pound person can burn 10 calories every minute she climbs stairs. That means that only 20 minutes of climbing a day will burn 200 calories!
3. Exercise while studying
For a 150-pound collegiette, only 26 minutes on a recumbent bike, 26 minutes on an elliptical trainer at a moderate pace or walking on a treadmill at three miles per hour for 56 minutes will burn 200 calories.
4. Do your chores
Light housework, like doing laundry, burns 170 calories an hour. Who knows, maybe you’ll even find your long-lost shirt or missing books along the way!
5. Squat when you blow-dry your hair
After your nice morning shower, you pull out your hair dryer and start drying… and drying… and drying. Hair can take so long to dry, so why not squat up and down while you do it? You can burn 70 calories for every 5 minutes of squatting. That’s 200 calories for 15 minutes!
6. Work on your flexibility
Stretching feels good, helps protect you from injury and burns more than twice the number of calories as sitting. If you spend just 12 minutes a day doing stretches, you’ll be able to burn more than 200 calories a week and be that much closer to touching your toes! You can also try doing stretches on the floor with your notes while studying.
7. Swap out your desk chair for an exercise ball
Sitting on an exercise ball increases calorie-burning by six percent, and since desk work burns around 106 calories per hour for a 135-pound individual, you can expect to burn 200 calories by doing work on the ball for an hour and 47 minutes. Feel like being more active? Doing a set of sit-ups and abdominal crunches on an exercise ball for 24 minutes burns 200 calories for a 150-pound person.
