Somebody accidentally got sucked in last night to The Biggest Loser. Is that awful? Before you roll your eyes, drama aside, the lifestyle and training tips on the show are important for any size or shape. I found myself glued for a solid 10 minutes listening to Bob’s advice on healthy eating – I’ll take tips wherever I can. I kind of want Bob and Jillian to keep my a** for a week.
Yuru, the world’s first “one stop” health and wellness destination, offers consumers individual and customizable tools to help them on a path to a healthier lifestyle. Be your own guru. Yuru.
They talk about all sorts of interesting topics on their blog, 6 of the Laziest Things Humans Have Devised or how about 8 popular restaurant meals that should feed more than 2 people. I was intrigued by 50 Simple Ways To Burn Calories, sure these are some things we’ve heard before but when you see them in a short list it’s a bit of an “ah-ha” moment.
A few suggestions from Yuru:
1. Take Vitamin-D
2. Drink coffee
3. Sleep more
4. Do things by hand (vacuuming, cooking)
5. Wear a pedometer
Things I do daily, include:
1. Parking out of the way to have a longer walk.
2. Taking the stairs.
3. Eating without the TV on or other distraction.
4. Keeping my stomach tight when sitting in traffic. (glorious mental picture there)
5. Drinking ice cold water.
