Default Interesting Tips - Food for thought!

I ran into these somewhere. I thought they were interesting:


- One pound equals 3500 calores

- Standing for 50 minutes a day burns 100 calories

- Research shows that extra sleep can help people stick with healthier eating and helps control hormones that trigger food cravings.

- Adding 2 pounds of muscle means that your body at rest will burn 100 extra
calories per day.

- Thirty minutes of house cleaning burns 100 calories

Well Dang! If 30 mns of cleaning burns 100 cals, I must burn 200 almost every day! I know that sounds bad to have an hour of cleaning to do every day, but I have a 1 year old, and a 35 year old (DH) to clean up around!!!

And here's the "good" news about fat........the heavier you are when you're standing there, or cleaning -- whatever -- the more calories you burn!

Good thread, Gretchen!

I'll add one:

- Many people mistake thirst for hunger, as it's symptoms are sometimes the same.

Jessica, that was interesting information too. To bad my husband is deployed for so long. I really think he would be up for that kind of exercise plan.

Sarah, Darn it. I know what you said is so true. I just don't drink enough water at all. I really need to work on that.

LOL Jill

Thanks for the tips.

Gretchen that explains why I never gained weight eating so much fast food when I worked at Wal-mart since I stood on my feet for over 8 hours a day. As soon as I stopped working there I gained like 20 pounds in less than 2 months!!!!
