How To Burn an Additional 300-500 Calories a Day Without Much Effort

March 26, 2015 2 min read

Here are some easy tips to get you to burn some extra calories without much added effort.

If you watch your favorite TV shows on a daily basis - then start using the time more wisely. Get up every commercial and walk around, do jumping jacks, stretch, vacuum, MOVE - you get the drift. 

Or spend your TV time folding laundry - and do it standing to expend a few more calories. 

Drink ice water all day long - it burns about 70 extra calories per day. 

Sweep your house while listening to your favorite tunes for 5 minutes each day.

I recommend using the stairs ALL the time. Use them instead of elevators every chance you get. That adds very little

time to your day and can burn extra calories. It amazes me how many people use an elevator to go ONE flight of stairs. Seriously?! Talk about lazy!

Park your car a block away if it is safe to do so. A block from work, the store, the mall, the pharmacy, etc, you get the idea. Get the farthest parking spot from any place you go so you have to walk extra steps each day. These extra steps add up over time. Go down to your local sporting goods store (or even a Walmart) and buy a 10 pound weight belt. Wear it everywhere during the day. This can really help melt fat and calories off your body. No joke! You can wear one around your waist, under your clothes without anyone noticing (Ok some outfits might show it, but if you live in a colder climate like me it is easy to hide under those sweaters). You can use the same weight belt on some of Lisa’s HIIT Max workouts too.

Stuck in an office all day? Set your alarm on your phone to go off every hour, stand up and take at least 50 steps, or do 10 jumping jacks and stretch.

These few things alone can trim 300 to 500 calories a day from your waistline. That is between 3 and 5 pounds a month and more than 15 pounds by bathing suit season! Now this does not mean you should pig out more. Remember - exercise is not an excuse to eat. If that worked, so many more of us would be fit and trim.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

Free Shipping: We are thrilled to now offer free shipping at checkout! If you choose this option at checkout, your order will be delivered ground within 5-7 business days.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system
