When burning calories exercise, dieting and lifestyle are some of the changes that discourage us from working out. None of us like to make these changes.
So if you still want to stuff some ugali, fries, mukimo or any meal that your heart fancies, knowing very well that this isn’t healthy or good for you, then this article is for you.
We are going to teach you how to burn calories without dieting. Many people have the wrong idea, when it comes to losing weight. They think that restricting calories and going on crash diets is a good thing — that it helps them to lose weight. In the end, it’s unsustainable, it slows down your metabolism, and it runs you down.
The right idea really is to eat enough, eat well, and burn those calories off with a healthy lifestyle habits, a healthy metabolism, and a good daily regimen. Below are 5 easy ways to burn calories without dieting.
1. Drink More Water
Most of us walk in Nairobi not knowing how dehydrated we are. Just drinking more water can be a great way to lose weight. I have a friend who tells me when she’s doing rounds in town she always carries a bottle of water. During this period she rarely feels hungry or feels the urge to eat anything. This is because most of us confuse our thirst signals with hunger signals.
Having a bottle close by at all times is a good idea. Water does a lot for your body. There are countless health benefits that are associated with drinking lots of water. Filling you body with tea, coffee, alcohol, sugar etc, you’re probably dehydrated. Invest in a water bottle that you can take to work.
2. Increase you intake of Superfoods
Superfoods are full of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that will fill you with long-lasting energy and make your metabolism work better. You don’t want to feel sluggish, tired, and worn out during the day, so don’t eat a sugary breakfast. Eat a superfood breakfast! Superfoods actually taste really great. Many superfoods, like blueberries, goji berries, and yogurt, taste really great. If you just switch to a superfood breakfast, you’ll notice a profound difference in a short time.
3. Active Hobby
Most Kenyans love spending their weekends’ downing some bottles of Tuskers and nyama choma well this sounds and feels like a good idea. But this habit has some long term effect which we have come to all know. It’s a great idea to find a hobby that you really love doing a physical one. It’s like exercising, but you don’t realize you’re exercising. It’s kind of like tricking your body into exercising.
4. Drink Coffee
Studies have shown that caffeine helps you burn calories faster. How about that? Just drink some fresh hot brew with your morning breakfast. It’ll put your body to work burning calories much faster.
5. Sleep More & Better
When you get plenty of sleep, you’re less likely to snack. When you get less than four hours of sleep per night for a long time, your metabolism slows down. Due to your metabolism slowing down, you burn calories a lot slower. Eating more frequently actually helps speed up your metabolism, too. What you intuitively think about diet is probably wrong. You actually need to eat more — but eat the right stuff.
