How to cut down fat without sweating

Get more lean by the end of this post.

  • Save half your meal when dining in or eating takeout.
  • Eat slowly. It takes 20 minutes for your stomach to realize that it’s full.
  • Pop in your headphones. Listening to songs that pump you up can help you last 20% longer when working out.
  • Fidget more often — tap your feet, pace across the room, play with your hair, adjust your seat. This burns 350 more calories a day compared to someone who remains stationary.
  • Watch a sports game with friends.
  • Watch someone else workout.
  • Drink coffee. The caffeine in one cup boosts calorie burning by 4% over 2.5 hours. Regular or non-coffee drinkers, this effect will work for you.
  • Eat those vegetable and fruit peels. You won’t feel hungry for another 2–3 hours.
  • Sleep 7–9 hours. A person burns about 0.42 calories for every pound in one hour of sleep.
  • Cook a homemade meal instead of eating out. You control how much oil sinks into your food.
  • Instead of walking flat on the treadmill, increase the incline.
  • Use the stairs instead of the elevator. Just two minutes of extra stair climbing a day is enough to stop average middle age weight gain.
  • Stretch your muscles. It’s better than not doing anything at all.
  • Laugh.
  • Drink more water. The colder it is, the more calories you burn.
  • Add spices to your food. Cinnamon, black pepper, cayenne pepper, turmeric, cumin, cardamon, ginger powder.
  • Make your food spicy, with Sriracha, Tabasco, Cholula, buffalo sauce, chili oil, crushed red pepper, Gochujang (Korean hot sauce).
  • Chew gum. This burns 11 calories an hour.
  • Eat breakfast, even when you’re not feeling it.
  • Grocery shop on a full stomach with a prepared list.
  • Skip the middle aisle of the grocery store. That’s where all the junk food is at.
  • Cut back on canned and processed foods and go for real food.
  • Don’t commit to a strict eating schedule. Eat when you’re just about hungry.
  • Share appetizers when hanging out with friends than order main entrees.
  • Eat your food sitting down at a table vs standing up. We tend to eat faster when we’re in a hurry.
  • Replace your counter with fresh fruits instead of chips and cookies.
  • Avoid eating late at night.
  • Snack between meals. Suggestions: yogurt, hummus with pita, salsa/guacamole & chips, sliced apples with peanut butter, granola bars, beef jerky.
