All of us want to take the easy way out in everything that we do and all the more for losing weight. There are some tricks that lazy people can adopt to lose weight without taking much effort.
- Chew gum
Chewing gum not only gives exercise to your jaw muscles but also prevents you from eating when you’re not hungry. Research has proved that you will eat at least 10-20% lesser when you chew gum.
- Eat spicy food
For a change instead of asking you not to eat, we are asking you to eat and that too exotic spicy Thai or Indian food. It is proved that by eating spicy food you can melt the fat in your body and as a matter of fact speed up the metabolism in your body, making you gain less weight in the long run.
- Stand and talk
If you do have to talk on the phone, try standing in the process or even walking as you talk. You will burn more calories as you talk rather than sitting in one place.
- Don’t take the tension
You might be burdened with work. But trust me, you are getting nowhere by taking the stress. People who are stressed out burn lesser caloriesas compared to the others who take on none.
- Sit on a gym ball
Use a gym ball to rest that butt of yours. You will burn a lot of calories trying to balance yourself on a stability ball. The best part is that you can use it at work by replacing your regular chair.
- Cut carbs for a day
Carbs are the mean things that are responsible for a lot of weight gain. They are essential enough to be included in your diet but there is no harm in cutting them out of your daily diet one day in a week.
- Skip a day from your weight training
Reduce your weight training to just a day or two in a week. You will achieve the same results.
You don’t have to do much to lose little extra calories. You don’t have to give it your all after all.
