10 Ways to Burn More Calories Just By Sitting
Who needs the gym when you can do these sneaky moves and lose weight with almost no effort?
Snack OftenMost bodies use more energy digesting smaller meals every few hours than if we were to eat the same number of calories in two or three sittings only. Davenport says to shoot for five small meals a day: breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, and dinner. "By eating frequently, we don't kick our bodies into starvation mode, which means our metabolism slows down and our body wants to store extra calories as fat," she says. "We also don't get super hungry and then overindulge when we finally do eat." Also, keep carbs earlier in the day as your morning snack, and make the remaining meals focused on protein and fiber. "By doing this, we can burn those carbs throughout the day while we're moving around, even at our desks, and not turn it into fat as we would if we ate them before bed."
