35 Lazy Ways To Lose Weight

Have Fun with Cardio

Cardio burns calories and helps you lose weight; aim for at least half an hour of cardio a day, five days a week. Although the sound of this might have you rolling your eyes, you can split workouts into two 15-minute sessions during the day. By doing exercise that you enjoy, it might be less of a burden, and you’re more likely to stick with it. For instance, use a stationary bike or treadmill while watching TV, go ice skating or swimming, play group sports, work out with a buddy, dance to loud music or play tag with the kids. Even chores around the house, such as vacuuming, mowing the lawn, washing the car and shoveling snow, can burn calories

Strength Train during Commercial Breaks

The Centers of Disease Control and Prevention favors strength training on at least two days a week. You don’t even have to leave the house to accomplish this; you can exercise during the commercial breaks while watching your favorite TV show. Get off the couch and pretend to sit back down to perform squats that work your legs, or do walking lunges around the room. Get on the floor and do some crunches and pushups; pick up some heavy books or water bottles and use them for resistance during biceps curls and lateral raises.

Snooze to Lose

Just because you’re lazy doesn’t mean you should sacrifice sleep, as getting seven to eight hours of sleep each night can prevent weight gain. Harvard School of Public Health states that lack of sleep affects hunger-controlling hormones in your body, making you end up with cravings for fatty, unhealthy food during your waking hours. When you give in to these cravings, you can gain weight. Also, if you lack sleep, it means that you’re awake longer, and have more time to eat and sabotage your diet.
