You don’t have to spend a lot of money joining a gym or hiring a personal trainer.
Your life presents countless opportunities to burn calories, just by getting through your day.
They’re actually pretty neat. As in "Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis" (NEAT).
Yes, it is “a thing” and it’s the energy that your body uses for doing everything that is not sleeping, eating or actual exercises. You can increase your NEAT by walking to work, typing, gardening, doing your house chores, and even fidgeting.
Physical activity doesn’t need to be strenuous or extreme to yield weight-related benefits.
Accumulated physical activity can significantly increase the number of calories burned throughout the day or week:
➤ If you walk at a speed of 2MPH for an hour you will have burned 183 Calories.
➤ Go for a family walk after dinner.
➤ Take the stairs.
➤ 30 min vacuuming: 119 Calories.
➤ 30 min washing windows: 102 Calories.
➤ 30 min raking the lawn: 140 Calories.
➤ 30 min Shoveling snow: 204 Calories.
Research suggests that individuals who move throughout the day are more likely to reach or maintain weight-loss goals versus those who are sedentary throughout the day and vigorously move through one exercise session.
Studies have shown that overweight and obese people tend to move less during everyday activities. If you’re starting from scratch with a lot of weight to lose and not much experience with exercise programs lets try moving a little bit more for burning calories.
Aso, think about the kind of physical activities that you enjoy — walking, running, bicycling, gardening, house cleaning, swimming, or dancing.
Make time to do what you enjoy on most days of the week. And then do it for longer.
