How to Burn 200 Calories Without Noticing!

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!

7 Ways to Burn 200 Calories Without Even Noticing

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.

Body Types and Weight Loss

Body Types and Weight Loss

Not all weight loss is created equal! Sometimes we can hit a rut and that’s not always our fault. Look at this tips for different Body Types. See if it’ll help you with your rut!

Body Types and Weight Loss

Apple Shaped Bodies

Those with an apple body type tend to hold more weight in the middle of their torso. Chest and waist measurements will be similar, but the hips will be a bit smaller. Some celebrities with this body type include Oprah and Jennifer Hudson!

What to Eat:
Unfortunately, those with an apple body type are more prone to heart-related health issues. This makes it extremely important to eat with the cardiovascular system in mind. When eating, half of your plate should be full of fresh vegetables or fruit. Also, it is better to go with organic whole grains like brown rice, quinoa, and oatmeal. Proteins should be low in fat like fish, low-fat organic cheese, beans, peas, or nuts.

How to Exercise:
A workout plan with both cardiovascular and strength training exercise is key to reducing fat if one has an apple shape. Brisk walking or jogging are important along with yoga and weight training

Pear Shaped Bodies

Pear body types carry the majority of their weight in the lower portion of the body. This makes weight loss extremely difficult because most exercise is meant to burn fat around the middle, which protects the heart. However, weight loss is possible with this body type!

What to Eat:
It is important for pear body types to watch their fat intake. If eating protein, make sure it is very lean. This is because it is easy for this body type to store fat, but it is more difficult to store protein or carbohydrates. It is important to have a diet rich in fruits and vegetables and complex carbohydrates like whole grains, lentils, and beans.

How to Exercise:
Cardio workouts that focus on the lower half of the body, like running or biking, are best. However, it is also important to strength train the upper half of your body.

Rectangular Shaped Bodies

Straight or rectangular body types tend to be more slender. They also will have similar measurements for the chest, waist, and hips. This can be very frustrating for some. As a pear shape, I had straight body type friends who were jealous of my curves. However, I was jealous of how easy it was for them to find clothes.

What to Eat:
Straight body types will gain weight around the midsection. They may look like they have a little pudge, and this pudge is terrible for the heart. A diet rich in healthy fats, like avocados, is best. Fish, nuts, other forms of lean protein, fruits, and vegetables are also important. Basically, eat a balanced diet of healthy, organic food to stay fit.

How to Exercise:
Exercise for straight body types should be about building muscle in an effort to keep extra weight off the middle and create definition of the human form. Weight training is very important.

Hourglass Shaped Bodies

The hourglass shape is the most desired body type, but women with this body type do suffer some weight gain problems. Weight tends to be evenly spread out so they still keep their figure, but hourglass body types are more likely to gain weight around the face, arms, knees, and ankles.

What to Eat:
An overall healthy diet is key to keeping a shapely and healthy body. It is best to eat mostly fresh fruits and vegetables. (Everyone needs more fruits and vegetables in their diet.) Whole grains like quinoa are also very important. Finally, only lean protein should be consumed. Food to avoid includes high-fat meats, processed foods, sugars, and caffeine.

How to Exercise:
A full body workout is important for this body type. Fat will be spread out, so hitting all trouble areas is necessary.
