Burn Calories with Minimal Effort

continued from Borneo Love ...

26. AVOID EATING LUNCH AT YOUR DESK
If you must, have a quick bite, then go for a short walk.

27. ALWAYS CARRY A SNACK
Try nuts, low-calorie bars, or a piece of fruit. Eating frequently keeps your metabolism up (and reduces the odds that you'll wind up a victim of the vending machine).

28. WEAR STILETTOS
Every few days, wear the highest high heels.. They help tone your legs because they work different muscles in your calves and thighs.

29. RELAX
Stress causes the body to release cortisol, which causes more calories to be stored as fat, especially in your abdomen.

30. WATCH LESS TELEVISION
Adults who halves their television viewing time (by using an electronic lock-out system) not only burned an extra 119 calories per day, but did so without altering what they ate.

31. LIFT UP
Rise up on the balls of your feet and then lower yourself down again.

32.  DRINK A FEW CUPS OF STRONG GREEN TEA EVERY DAY
In addition to caffeine, green tea contains catechin polyphenols, plant chemicals that may also boost metabolism, according to a study.

33. HEAT THINGS UP
Some studies show that some spicy food can temporarily increase metabolism.

34. WORK YOUR LEGS A BIT
Do a small knee lift if you're stuck in traffic... almost like you're marching in place.

35. EAT SALMON
Salmon eaters lost significantly more weight than beef eaters, even though the calories consumed were equal.

36. EAT THE PEEL
It takes the body more energy to break down fiber-rich foods, like the skins of fruits & vegetables.

37. GET BUSY
Most couples burn an average of 300 calories an hour while they're having sex :))

38. DON'T SNACK IN THE CAR
It's a hotbed of mindless eating and excess calorie consumption.

39. SWING YOUR ARMS
The more parts of your body that you use simultaneously, the more you burn.

40. CLEAN UP
When you're wiping down the counter or washing the car, really stretch out.. Use both hands and make large circular motions.

41. SIT UP
When watching TV, get in the habit of holding your body straight.

42. DON'T FORGET DAIRY
Low-fat dairy inhibits fats from being stored.

... above all, be happy, think positive and chill :)
