7 “lazy” ways to lose excess weight

7 “lazy” ways to lose excess weight

Weight loss may be challenging, frustrating, and exhausting, but if you work hard at it, weight loss can also be highly rewarding. Many Americans tend to start and stop pursuing their weight-loss goals repeatedly because of the sweat and dedication they’re required to put in to lose excess pounds. This is partly due to why many Americans also pursue fad diets and bogus weight-loss products; they simply want to lose weight in the easiest manner possible without having to exert themselves too much.

While being lazy is the last mindset you want to have when it comes to losing weight, there are actually a number of relatively small lifestyle changes you can make to become thinner without necessarily having to exert yourself.

Or, stick to drinking green, white, or black teas to benefit from both caffeine and antioxidative properties.

2. Sit on a stability ball

Swap your office chair or recliner at home for a large stability ball. Studies have shown that sitting on a stability ball can burn off more than 260 calories per day if you forego a regular chair for the ball.
