Burn More Calories!
Ready to rev up your routine and burn more calories? The two main factors in doing so are your metabolism and your workouts. Here are a few tips on how to keep those both in tip-top shape:
Drink green tea: Replace coffee with green tea for an extra kick to calorie burning, and for some added antioxidants.
Shake things up: If you're bored with your workout, your body probably is too. Try interval training. If you're running, run one minute fast for every two minutes at your regular pace. Likewise with biking or swimming. You can also add some weights or other muscle building exercises in during your cardio time.
Find more fun activities that increase health: Look into mountain biking, dance classes, recreational sports teams, etc.
Drink water: If it helps, put four or five rubber bands around your wrist, and for each sixteen ounce bottle of water you drink during the day, take one off.
Move around: Even fidgeting can help you to burn calories, so if you're stuck sitting, tap your feet, drum your fingers or do exercises in your chair.
Increase Outdoor Activity: take your exercise routine outside and you'll be amazed how much more energy you have to devote to it!
