Ways to Burn Calories Better

1. EAT A GOOD BREAKFAST
Research says eating breakfast is the best way to start your metabolism, but most of us still skip it. The best breakfast . is a mix of protein (eggs or tofu), carbs (whole grain toast or oatmeal), and healthy fats (olive oil or nuts).

2. LISTEN TO HUNGER CUES
If your stomach is growling for food, feed it. Just as important, stop eating when you're full. "If you your body stores the extra calories as fat, "Undereat and your body lowers its metabolism in order to conserve energy."

3. STAY HYDRATED

Your liver flushes out toxins and converts fat to energy, and it needs water to function properly. Drink enough fluids so your urine is pale yellow; water is a good choice as is eating plenty of fruits and veggies, but tea or juice will also hydrate you,

4. TAKE PROBIOTICS

A recent study published in Molecular Systems Biology found that good bacteria— available in yogurt or kefir (eat one to three servings daily) or probiotic supplements (follow dosage instructions on the packet)—can help improve digestion and metabolism and promote weight loss. "Probiotics help balance metabolism,"

5. SPICE IT UP
Studies suggest that capsaicin, found in chili peppers, may increase metabolic rate for 30 minutes by raising the body's temperature. Add a pinch of cayenne or paprika to a meal a few times a day.

More calories are not at all good for the health as well as for the fitness of the body. Some of the ways to burn calories are do yoga and exercise, avoid eating oily and junk food, drink plenty of water and many more.

ways to burn more calories


Day-to-day activities to boost your calorie burn

Weight loss doesn’t have to involve countless hours sweating the calories off. The simple equation is that you have to use more calories than you consume to lose weight. Regular everyday activities, from getting ready to gardening to housework, or even sleeping, can all help burn hundreds of unexpected calories every day.
There's no way to give a universal answer to how many calories you will burn during a given activity because everybody burns calories differently – a heavier person will naturally burn more calories – but these activities are all guaranteed to add, rather unexpectedly, to your calorie burning count.


Get your teeth into it


Frequently when you open your mouth, you add to your calorie intake, but you can start to burn calories just by opening up and brushing your teeth. Brushing your pearly whites (two minutes minimum please) will burn around six calories. Brush your teeth several times a day and you’re multiplying this. To add to effectiveness, why not stand on one leg for one minute and then swap onto the other for a minute – this will burn an extra 20 calories.


Be house proud


Housework is a chore, but rather than dread it, use it as a workout. Dust for half an hour and burn around 80 calories; mop the floor for 15 minutes and burn around 70 calories – even more if you got at it extra vigorously. Vacuuming for 30 minutes will account for around 120 calories, and the same time spent ironing will burn around 75 calories.


Green fingers

If you’ve still got energy, you can move outdoors and look for opportunities to burn more calories. Digging for an hour could expend nearly 500 calories, mowing the lawn for 30 minutes burns over 100 calories – even more if you use a push mower – and if you lose the bag attachment you can spend another 20 minutes raking up, accounting for around 70 calories.


Your car awaits


Make a serious dent into your calorie intake by washing the car. If you do a proper job, both inside and out, this could take you up to two hours, during which you may have burned off more than 500 calories. And if you are extra proud of your set of wheels, you might want to go one step further and give it a nice wax too to up the calorie burning effect.

Shop to drop


Pushing a shopping trolley up the aisles for around half an hour will burn over 100 calories and this number will increase the more you put in your trolley and the heavier it gets (healthy low-calorie options only please). Make sure you pack your own shopping at the check out and take your goods to the car, remembering to take your trolley back, all to boost your calorie burn further. If you are just getting a few items, then shop with a basket rather than a trolley for maximum impact.


Make a meal of it Half an hour on your feet preparing a meal will burn approximately 70 calories, and if you are going back and forth to set the table, this will add more calories to your burn count. The actual act of eating your meal will account for around 50 calories, and then you’ve got the dishes to do which will burn about 40 calories for every 15 minutes you are scrubbing, drying and putting away. Scrub harder for maximum benefit.

Relax, don’t do it


You may think it unlikely that you can burn calories by relaxing, but you do. One hour spent in front of the TV burns around 65 calories. Opt to do without the TV remote and you can boost your calories burned just by getting up occasionally to switch channels. You could even do another activity while watching TV such as knitting, sewing or even typing on your laptop to boost your calorie burn.

Toilet duty


Everybody has to go at some point, some people more frequently than others, but did you know that you are still burning calories while making a call of nature? Some people choose to take a good book or magazine to occupy them while they are on the toilet and you’ll burn around 1 calorie for each minute you spend on your porcelain throne. So that’s a loss that’s not to be sniffed at.


Sleep

You’re going to be pretty whacked after all that calorie burning activity, but even when you are getting some shut eye you are still burning calories. Yes, an average night’s sleep of around eight hours of sleep can account for over 400 calories. That’s more than enough reason to help you rest a little easier at night.


(Note: Calories counts are based on an average female of around 65kg. A heavier person will burn more calories.)
