The fundamental truth of weight loss, regardless of what the latest diet says, is that you need to utilize more calories than you consume.

The great news is that you don’t need to spend all your hours at the gym connected to some annoying, beeping piece of metal because all that you do in your everyday life consumes calories. Look at the accompanying exercises and how many calories they consume. (Note: Calories depend on a 150-pound individual. A heavier person will consume more calories.)

Kimberly Lummus, MS, RD, public relations coordinator and media representative for the Austin Dietetic Association in Austin, Texas, an individual who weighs 150 pounds ( 68 kg ) can burn the following calories:

┬áBurning more Calories Every Day.Making an effort to do more “spontaneous physical activities” during your day, will help to burn more calories.What is the best way to do this? You need to reduce the time you spend sitting and add calorie-burning activities to the day routine.

McCall lists the following activities as calories burners:

  • Walk through the office to see a colleague instead of making a phone call or sending an e-mail.
  • Use the stairs rather than an elevator.
  • Clean your house instead of calling a cleaner.
  • Take your dog out for walks more frequently.

You can also think about using a device to measure the number of steps you are making throughout the day. Once you know what percentage steps you are taking on average, set higher goals for yourself and work out ways to increase the number of steps you make day after day. Before you realize it, you will find yourself running up stairs, volunteering to brush the room, and looking for excuses to walk to the shop. More you progress further, the more you will need to move!
