Varied Exercise

Do Physical Chores

Choose to do chores that are more physical straining or make them more about moving your body. Do some gardening, mow the lawns or instead of mopping your floors, give them a scrub on hands and knees! Hand washing the dishes is also a good idea as well as cleaning your car yourself – all these add up to extra calories.

Eat Better Snacks

Even if you eat 3x a day, those periods of time in between can still leave you hungry. Instead of eating unhealthy food, opt for meals that are healthy. These are good snack options and when accumulated, it will have a good impact on weight loss.

You can blame snacking for most people’s weight gain problems. Cookies, chips and fries don’t help you fill up. It’s just additional carbs, fat and sugar. It is also a problem to stop eating because of your body’s addiction to excessive food.
