11 Lazy Ways to Burn More Calories

Welcome to another day in my life. Today is Tuesday and I hope you are having a beary safe and great week so far. Dab the AIDS Bear and I are back home and resting after a very busy weekend.

Everyone asks me how I stay in shape while living with HIV for almost 3 1/2 decades to which I reply working out, eating healthy and getting enough sleep. But what if you can't do those things for whatever reason. Well here's 11 lazy ways to burn more calories. You might think losing weight is all about hard work at the gym and having a strict eating regimen, but sometimes, even just the smallest amount of effort can deliver major pay-offs.

Slurp some java
Caffeine can help boost calorie burn for up to three hours. Not into joe? Try tea.

Hold (un)steady
Using a stability ball can kill 260 more daily cals than parking your butt in a chair.

Go Paleo-lite
Cut carbs two days a week. Odds are, you'll lose more than full-time devotees.

Grab some gum
Chew to thwart snacking. Translation: You'll likely eat up to 10 percent less.

Dial it down
The room temperature sweet spot for melting fat: a cool 64 degrees.

Order Thai
Spices in this tasty grub can spike your metabolism by 23 percent.

Take a day off
Strength training twice a week versus thrice a week can yield the same muscle.

Stay sane
Stressed women work off about 104 fewer calories than those who are calm.

Skip the second
Knocking back two beers may slow down fat blasting by 73 percent.

Get fidgety
Tapping your feet or pacing can burn hundreds more cals than being still.

Sweat for less
Just 10 minutes of moderate exercise helps rev metabolism for an hour.

Hope these interesting tips help you reach your goals and you have a beary safe and great Monday!

Until we meet again; here's wishing you health, hope, happiness and just enough.

big bear hug,

Daddy Dab
