10 Surprising Fat-Blasting Strategies

Put Your TV on a Diet

Reality TV may be responsible for a bulging belly. When scientists at the University of Vermont forced a group of study participants to watch 50% less television by electronically locking their TVs, they each burned an average of 119 extra calories per day. Researchers theorize it’s because participants were on their feet and moving more during the time they typically spent slumped on the couch channel hopping. So give your remote a vacation and shave off some screen time — you’ll burn more calories and see faster results.
