102 Ways to Torch Fat Fast
You lost the weight for beach-body season. We rounded up our best tips to help you keep it off.
88) Start running. Sounds obvious, but just try running as far as you can. The next day, try and go for a minute longer. Within a few weeks, you’ll notice how much farther you can go than when you first started. 89) Do household chores. Burn calories while mowing the lawn (346 calories per hour), raking leaves (230), or washing your car (269). 90) Don't wait in line for a treadmill. Do a few sets of box jumps or mountain climbers to get warmed up. 91) Try Ostrich. It’s leaner than most ground beef you can find at your grocer.
92) Swap a side of rice with a low-cal veggie like broccoli. You’ll save 250 calories per serving. 93) Cut rest periods in half while lifting. Your muscles and cardiovascular system will have to work harder, burning more fat. 94) When eating out, ask for sauces on the side. You’ll eat less—and save tons of calories. 95) Be wary of “zero- calorie” foods: If a product has less than five calories per serving, it can be labeled zero calories. 96) Brush your teeth before bed—shirtless. You'll see your progress in the mirror and get psyched to work out the next morning. 97) Set a few simple goals every morning—getting in 30 minutes of training; skipping your afternoon junk-food binge. Meet ’em and build off of them for even bigger accomplishments tomorrow.
98) Load up on low-fat cottage cheese. It’s a great source of calcium, and packs just 163 calories per cup. 99) Finish a crossword while watching TV. You'll be less likely to eat if your fingers are busy. 100) Don't hold on. The guys on the cardio machines who hold onto the frame are usually out of shape. That's not an accident. 101) Train with elastic bands on days you can’t make it to the gym.
