Fidgeting The Natural Weight Loss Diet


Fidgeting The Natural Weight Loss Diet

It's now official. the​ simple act of​ fidgeting can mean the​ difference between lean and obese. It’s the​ natural weight loss diet.

My friend likes to​ relate a​ story from time to​ time about when he was just a​ lad. His grandfather called him "Worm",​ because he fidgeted so much. And between you and me,​ it​ can get rather annoying.

But he had the​ right idea,​ even if​ it​ wasn't intentional. He's 5'8" tall and weighs around 145 lbs.

To my knowledge,​ he doesn't work out,​ jog,​ or​ go to​ the​ gym. He fidgets. When we​ visit,​ I watch him twist and turn,​ tap his feet in​ the​ air,​ get up and down from the​ chair and walk around. It's enough to​ drive you crazy,​ but his slim physique speaks volumes.

I've always believed that fidgeting is​ a​ result of​ a​ fast metabolism,​ so he naturally burns more calories,​ producing natural weight loss. But I also believe that fidgeting can be learned. of​ course that's all we​ need,​ more people to​ drive us crazy!

Now there's a​ study to​ confirm what I've always believed. a​ detailed study conducted of​ mundane bodily movements found that obese people tend to​ be much less fidgety than lean people and spend at​ least two hours more each day just sitting still. the​ extra motion by lean people is​ enough to​ burn about 350 extra calories a​ day,​ which could add up to​ 10 to​ 20 pounds a​ year.

"There are these absolutely staggering differences between people who are lean and people who are obese,​" said James Levine of​ the​ Mayo Clinic,​ who led the​ research. "The amount of​ this low-grade activity is​ so substantial that it​ could,​ in​ and of​ itself,​ account for obesity quite easily."

Here are some things you could try.

* When a​ commercial come on​ TV,​ get up and stretch or​ better yet,​ move around. Just avoid the​ kitchen.

* Wriggle your toes and your fingers whenever you can. This will also tell you how sore they are and if​ their condition is​ so bad,​ just think of​ the​ rest of​ your body.

* Tap your feet in​ the​ air. Think of​ an​ upbeat song and tap along. This helps get your blood flowing.

* Do things like fetching,​ turning things off and on​ by yourself. Often when we​ come back tired from work,​ we​ tend to​ get others to​ do simple chores for us. These things are no big deal. They are things that we​ can very well do for our selves but we​ don’t.

* When talking on​ the​ phone,​ get up and pace. Just vary your walking area. You don't want to​ wear a​ path in​ your carpet.

* Try breathing exercises. You might be surprised to​ know that breathing exercises too can lead to​ weight loss. if​ you are doing the​ breathing exercises properly,​ you will find that you can exert a​ lot of​ pressure on​ the​ muscles around the​ mid section.
You can feel a​ tightening of​ these muscles each time you breathe in​ or​ breathe out. So go ahead and breathe properly,​ it​ is​ good for you.

* Do not slouch in​ your chair,​ but try to​ maintain an​ erect posture with your tummy tucked in. Slouching is​ a​ very bad habit. Not only is​ it​ bad for your back but it​ also gives you a​ very flabby figure. it​ is​ your way of​ saying yes to​ a​ comfortable,​ weight-gaining pose.
Make it​ a​ point to​ always sit as​ erect as​ you can. it​ is​ also a​ terrific way to​ ward off back problems.

Fidgeting isn't a​ cure-all for obesity,​ but if​ you're physically unable or​ just too plain lazy to​ eat right and workout,​ it's a​ great start.
