Great Ways To Burn Calories Without Noticing


By adding a little exercise to your life you can burn off those extra calories and stay in shape….

Keeping a beady eye on your calorie intake is important for almost anyone trying to stick to a diet. But no matter how hard some people try, they just can’t seem to burn off as many calories as they eat.

Finding time to exercise can be a problem for those caught up in a busy work routine, trying to find an activity that is fun can also discourage people from working out.

But no matter what your daily routine consists of, you can always find a way of adding a little exercise and exerting some extra energy without really noticing the effort it takes to do.

Here are 8 great tips on how to burn off a few extra calories:

  • Walk up the escalator – just 5 mins of walking up stairs burns up 144 calories, so if your day includes endless rides on the escalator then walking up them will not only speed up your journey, it will also have you burning more calories.
