Burn 500 Calories
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

The simplistic idea behind losing weight is burning as much calories as you take in on a daily basis. That sounds pretty simple, right? Everyone has their own opinions and beliefs on how much they should weigh, are they content with their weight, and most of all when we look in the mirror are we truly happy with what we see? Burn 500 calories a day and after one week, you will begin to see a significant difference in your weight, stamina, and energy level.

Begin with the basics, if you don't have a lot of time, why not try walking. Fast paced walking for an hour and a half will burn 500 calories. If you are a beginner or if you want to break the time up, try walking two sets per day. You could use part of your lunch break and have an early morning walk after your cup of coffee. You can also get that dusty old bike out of the basement or garage because its time to start biking. Remember that new bike trail that just opened up, wouldn't it be awesome to see some nature while burning those calories. If you ride 10mph or under consider riding for about 3 hours but if you want to cut the time in half, try speeding it up to 12-14mph.

Let's talk about some muscle toning while you burn 500 calories. Doing an hours worth of calisthenics will help you burn calories and shed those pounds. This would consist of sit ups, push ups, you could also try chin ups and leg raises. But don't stop there,keep it fresh and try doing a combo, perhaps an early morning walk, an afternoon bike ride, and a quick 20 minute power pumping session of calisthenics before you retire for the evening.

Its Friday night, and you thought about going out for a night on the town, but you didn't have time today to get a work out in, a walk, or a bike ride. That is great, because once you hit the dance floor you are liable to go all night! Dancing is a great way to burn 500 calories. In fact, after 2 hours, you've done the job! Finding a group of friends to walk with, bike with, or even work out with will be a significant help in keeping you motivated to reach your goal and fitness level. You can burn calories and have fun all at the same time!
