35 Lazy Ways To Lose Weight

 

Tone Down the Workout Intensity
Exercising too hard without enough recovery time increases levels of the stress hormone cortisol, says Jade Teta, an integrative physician and author of The Metabolic Effect Diet. This causes your body to hold onto belly fat. So how do you hit that sweet spot between calorie-burning effort and adequate rest?

When doing high-intensity workouts, trainer Michelle Lovitt recommends wearing a heart-rate (HR) monitor and aiming for 85 percent to 90 percent of max HR during intervals and 60 percent to 70 percent during recoveries.

Write (Some) Stuff Down
Food journaling is a great way to become more aware of what you’re putting in your mouth, but it can get boring fast. “When people feel overwhelmed by something, they tend to stop altogether,” says clinical psychologist Ninoska Peterson, Ph.D. Journal twice during the week and once on weekends, she says. In a recent study, 220 women who wrote down what they ate at least three days per week lost an average of 11 pounds in 18 months.

Cut Your Gym Time
In a study from the University of Copenhagen, participants who exercised 30 minutes per day for three months lost about eight pounds, while those who worked out 60 minutes per day lost only six pounds. Since a half hour of exercise isn’t as exhausting as a full hour, you’re less likely to end up on the couch for the rest of the day and remain active, which burns even more calories. Longer workouts also make it more likely you’ll reward yourself with food afterward.
