9. Casual day payoff You will blast more calories during the day wearing comfy clothes like jeans or khakis, sport shirts and soft-soled shoes than donning constricting suits, skirts and heels. Why? Because you walk more, a study found. Now you just have to convince your boss if you work in that type of setting.
10. You know squat! At your desk chair, or in front of your computer, pretend you’re going to sit but don’t — stop and come back up without using your arms. Always start squats by lowering your hips, not bending knees forward, and keeping your weight on your heels. Repeat the motion throughout the day (even at the potty!) for 15 to 20 total. What this will do is strengthen your quadriceps, which are in your legs. It might seem a little hard at first but hey, it’ll get easier and you’ll find out when you develop more muscle, you’ll feel better and your weight will come off. Try it.
11. Drop the soda Your body doesn’t register calories from liquids the same way it does those from foods, so you won’t get those “stop eating” signals to help you compensate for the overload later on. Change from two glasses of regular soda or fruit juice to pH water. The more cold pH water you drink the more weight you’ll lose. I remember a woman I knew, all she did was change to drinking lots and lots of pH water. She lost 20 pounds in a matter of weeks, so the more pH water you drink, the more you’ll lose. It works.
12. Talk it up Every time you grab the phone, stand up and pace around. Heavy people sit on average two and a half hours MORE per day than thin people, according to the Mayo Clinic. I know that’s hard to believe, but stay active. The less you sit down, the more you’ll keep. The more you walk the more you’ll lose. It’s simple, but again, it works.
