Summer is around the corner and it is time for bikini season. It’s time to shed the winter fat and get back in to swimsuits, bikinis, and tank tops. If you are wanting to lose weight fast without making a lot of dramatic changes, I’ve got the perfect easy weightloss tips and tricks for you. Here is 30 ways to burn 300 calories, without having to diet, exercise, or make any extreme changes to your lifestyle.
Remember: One pound of fat is 3500 calories.
The goal is to lose fat and keep lean muscles.
Burning calories is an essential part of losing weight and being in shape. As long as you burn more calories than you consume, you will lose weight. It’s as easy as that. Getting in shape isn’t about making huge changes to your daily life; it’s about making a series of smaller changes.
30 Ways to Burn 300 Calories
1. Sit Up Straight
When you sit up straight, you engage your core, strengthening your abdominal and back muscles. You will also look taller and leaner as well.
2. Eat Breakfast
Studies show making breakfast a daily habit can help you lose weight – and keep it off. Eating breakfast kick starts your metabolism and it triggers your body to start burning fat. “People skip breakfast thinking they’re cutting calories, but by mid-morning and lunch, that person is starved,” says Milton Stokes, RD, MPH, chief dietitian for St. Barnabas Hospital in New York City. “Breakfast skippers replace calories during the day with mindless nibbling, binge-ing at lunch and dinner. They set themselves up for failure.” Read more at about the benefits of breakfast here.
3. Don’t Peel Your Fruits And Vegetables
The peel of the fruit and vegetables are often also the most nutritious part. Plus you will also get more fiber, which will keep you full longer.
4. Chew Your Food
Chewing your food helps you truly taste the food, causes you to eat slower, and also helping you feel fuller. It take your brain about 20 minutes before it is able to register from your stomach that you are full. Secondly, it uses bits of energy, so you’re burning as you eat. Try to aim to chew 20 times and set your fork down in between bites.
5. Drink More Water
Drinking the right amount of water can easily save you 300 calories. Water boosts metabolism, so your body burns calories continuously. Most of us have trouble knowing the difference between being thirsty and hunger. Often times, we mistaken thirst for hunger. Instead, drink a cup of water when you think you’re hungry and see if the “hunger” goes away. When you are dehydrated, your metabolism also decreases. Drinking water throughout the day caused metabolic rates to increase by about 30 percent in a German study. You should drink half your body weight in oz. This is usually around 8-10 cups a day.
6. Get More Sleep
Getting fewer than four hours of sleep over an extended period of time slows the metabolism. There have been several researches showing how lack of sleep triggers and increases production of Ghrelin, the hunger hormone. Most experts recommend aiming for between seven and nine. To find out what your body needs, go to bed one weekend and don’t set the alarm. Wake up naturally. The hours you slept is how many hours you need to sleep each day.
7. Eat 4-5 Small Meals
Smaller meals are easier for the body to digest and helps increases your metabolism.
Relaxing feels so good, but it’s also good for your waistline. When you are stressed, your body releases cortisol, which causes more calories to be stored as fat, especially in your abdomen. Research also shows chronic stress is tied to an increase in appetite. Finding an effective way to reduce stress not only makes you happier, but it also makes your waistline smaller too.

I am always taking about building lean muscles in my workout videos, but today, I want to share with you the benefits of lean muscles. The reason why you want to have lean muscles is to increase your metabolism. Muscles consume more calories than fat. One pound of muscle burns about up to 6.5 calories per hour. Muscles burn 5.5 times more calories than fat tissues, which burn about 1.2 calories per pound per hour. If you work out, a pound of muscle can consume up to 10 calories per hour!
In fact, if you were to convert 5 pounds of fat to 5 pounds of muscles, you would burn 230 calories doing absolutely nothing at all. Muscles need calories, which is a form of energy, in order to sustain it. Therefore, the more lean muscles you have, the faster your metabolism becomes. The problem is, most people turn to dieting when they are trying to get in shape. Dieting actually causes you to lose lean muscles, which slows down your metabolism. Find out what you need to do instead of dieting in this , short video.
Muscles Burn Calories
In addition to increasing your metabolism, lean muscles also add shape and firmness to your body. Lean muscles also helps minimize cellulite and dimples on your legs and thighs by decreasing overall fat and firming up the muscles. Want a butt that makes Jennifer Lopez jealous? You can reshape your body simply by adding lean muscles where you desire it. It doesn’t matter what age you are or if you have ever worked out before. Your body is an incredible machine that is resilient and you will see results from working out in as little as a few days!
One of my favorite tricks before going out on a date or to an event is to do a mini workout before I leave. If I am wearing a short dress, I will do some squats to get a “pump” to my legs, giving them more shape and definition while firming them up. If I am wearing a sleeveless shirt, I will do a quick set of pushups and dips to tighten up my arms and upper body. It is a simple trick that will give you an instant boost of confidence!
