There are many ways to burn 100 calories, so here are a few that you can easily incorporate on a daily basis to burn more fat and lose weight more quickly!
Either burning an extra 100 calories or saving 100 calories…they really are so simple to do.
Just a few small changes can make a huge difference to the amount of weight you can lose and the rate at which you can lose it.
Think about it this way. There are 3,500 calories in a pound of fat.
Burn an extra 100 calories a day and that’s 3,500 calories in 35 days.
Doesn’t sound a lot but that’s an extra 10.5lbs in a year.
Just imagine doing a couple of the things on the list every day…
Do three of them and that’s over 30lbs extra lost a year.
All 10 and that’s an extra 100lbs plus a year!
Soon add up, don’t they!
Granted, you may well be doing some of them already but there are plenty of other ways to burn 100 calories – just use your imagination!
