How To Burn Calories And Lose Weight — 7 Different Activities

Updated on July 16, 2014

Go Burn It


First of all, I would like to tell that I am writing the topic burning calories with the state of mind that I am going to talk about those activities where we can burn calories in enormous quantity and how it makes one to stay slim if few points are properly weighed and taken care of along with burning calories, which I would further elaborate in below and the main purpose of writing this. So, it is all about how to burn calories and stay slim.

First all never starve yourself or go on a fad diet or any kind of dieting. Our body is a supercomputer and when we starve ourselves, our body thinks that there is feminine, it slows the metabolic rate and starts storing fat. So, Never Starve Yourself Or Go On A Diet. Eat multiple meals in small portions of good nutritional value and minimal carbohydrates. This is the mantra to accelerate your metabolic rate and stay slim.

Also green tea is very good in increasing the metabolic rate of our body. Also it is full of antioxidants. So you can kill two sparrows with a stone. So go green. Drink green tea whenever you have an urge to drink tea, coffee, or any drink. Slowly, it will become a habit and help you lose weight.

Now see, every kind of activity either it is typing, sitting, standing, eating and even thinking requires some amounts of energy and we burn calories to meet that demand of energy. So knowing or unknowingly, we are always burning calories, but the quantity differs.

In a more simplified way:

1. There are different types of functions we do in a day.

2. Body requires energy to do those functions, which we get through our food.

3. Different types of food give our body different amount of energy.

4. Different types of functions require different amount of energy.

5. More intense functions need more energy and we are burning more calories to meet that demand.

So, this is the balance between how much energy we need and how much we eat, and if we burn more calories than we eat, we lose fat and stay slim. Otherwise, we gain weight.

If we eat more and function less, extra food or energy is stored in the form of fat in our body.

But we cannot or should not excessively control our hunger or urge to eat. Food is one of the finest thing, we human beings enjoy. So, enjoy your food but burn the extra calories to stay slim. This is the simplest answer of how to stay slim.

So, the main point is enjoy your food but know how to burn calories instead of storing them. Even if you have already stored them, there are below-mentioned different ways to burn calories. What I personally prefers are categorized serially.

7. Jogging — For me, a jog a day keeps the doctor away, but try to do it in the morning. Not only we burn calories, lose fat and stay slim, but we enter lots of fresh air or oxygen in our lungs. We make our heart and lungs healthy as well as we feel positive when we jog in the morning.
