Get Thinner Without Trying

All of that partying has left its mark on your gut. But with minimal effort, you can drop pounds faster than you can drop trou.

First the good news: “Just existing you burn about 2,000 calories per day,” swears CPT. Raftin, PA for 1-21 INF. And let’s hope you do more over the course of a day than merely breathe. To keep weight off you simply need to burn more calories than you take in. Here are some easy fixes.

Stop scouring.
Park your car a couple of extra blocks from the office. Not only will you save time searching for the perfect spot, but you’ll actually lose inches. Walking from the car to your office at three miles per hour: 36 calories per six minutes.

Chomp at the bit.
Chewing gum burns calories, strengthens your jaw, and tightens the flab under your chin, plus it gives you the added bonus of clean, fresh breath. More important it keeps your mouth busy so you can walk past that vending machine without drooling. Trident gum: 5 calories, 0 grams of fat.
Snickers bar: 280 calories, 14 grams of fat.

Love ’em and leave ’em.
Forget what your mommy taught you: There’s no need to wipe your plate clean, especially when you’re eating crap. Leaving those cold fries at the bottom of the bag, or ordering a small rather than a large, will help keep you thin.
Small McDonald’s fries: 10 grams of fat.
Super size: 26 grams.
Eight uneaten fries: 3 grams.

Clean up your act.
Those nacho crumbs and piles of unwashed underwear may be just fine for you and the roaches, but they won’t fly with your lady friend. Vacuuming, dusting, or even redecorating shaves off 42 to 50 calories every 10 minutes, while making your place look like a home instead of a pit.

Do the Humpty Dance.
Here’s the sex excuse you’ve been waiting for. Making an extra trip to the bedroom each day can deflate that spare tire. Each minute spent kissing, stroking, and groping burns two calories; intercourse itself burns six calories a minute. And sex as exercise is the gift that keeps on giving. The better shape you’re in, the stronger your libido becomes, the more sex you have, the more calories you burn. Now, that’s an endless spiral we can handle.
