10 Ways to Burn or Avoid Excess Calories

The difference between gaining and losing weight can sometimes be in the sneaky calories you take through snacks, drinks, and other things outside of meals. You may eat the healthiest food available, but you will still gain weight if you eat too much of it. Here are the easy ways to shed a few hundred calories every day.

  1. Every time you crave something sweet, drink a glass of water first. The craving will often go away.
  2. Go for a short walk or run each time you have food cravings but are not genuinely hungry.
  3. Don’t keep snacks and sweets at home. If you really want something, you can go to the store and get it.
  4. Keep your shopping list simple and only shop for real food, avoiding snacks, sodas, and anything else that may tempt you.
  5. Go shopping on a full stomach; that will make you more rational.
  6. You may feel more hungry if you’re not sleeping enough; adjust your sleep schedule.
  7. Brush your teeth after every meal. This should prevent you from mindlessly munching between the meals.
  8. Gradually change your habits instead of trying everything at once.
  9. Never skip breakfast or you will find yourself eating more throughout the day.
  10. Figure out what works best for you – eating 3 main meals or eating 4-6 smaller meals during the day.
