10 easy ways to burn 100 calories
It doesn’t matter what you eat and how much, but how many calories you spend. And if you want to lose weight, you should burn more energy than what the consumed food will generate.
Here are 10 easy ways to burn 100 calories and more :
1. Enjoy outside with the kids.
If you spend some time with them (and join in their games) for 17 minutes, burning 100 calories are guaranteed. Furthermore, the children most likely will love it and it will be difficult to reject them and thus you’ll burn even more.
2. Do not rush to order food by phone but spend half an hour of food preparation.
It is estimated that the time spent in the kitchen when you prepare the food will burn the calories that you’ll consume from it. And if the food that you cook isn’t full with calories, will be an added bonus.
3. Walk the dog for 20 minutes.
Do not get angry if the dog runs more than you want and you have to chase it. It actually helps in this way.
4. Be romantic.
Half an hour dancing (even if it is very slow) would be sufficient to burn 100 calories. Not only the movements but also emotions, burn energy.
5. Indulge yourself with a hobby outside the home.
100 calories are burned with 15 minutes bowling, 30 minutes in the park with Frisbee or kite, or 13 rounds of card game. Golf: 18 minutes.
6. Meet with friends or relatives in the social network.
It might seem incredible but it is true – half an hour ‘chat’ on the keyboard will burn 100 calories.
7. Take care of the flowers at home.
20 minutes devoted to them every day are sufficient to burn 100 calories.
8. Wash the car.
If the weather is warm enough you don’t have to take the car to car wash, just use your own hands. And any time spent in the sun means more fresh air.
9. Fix this and that in your clothes.
Half an hour spent in sewing or mending, is sufficient for the ‘magic number’ 100. If in this time you watch something on television, you can even overachieve the ‘plan’.
10. Walk the stairs.
At least once a day, skip the elevator. 20 minutes per day and the goal is achieved.
Note: the burning of calories has been estimated for person weighing approximately 75 kg.
