Lose Weight WITHOUT Dieting: Tip #41 – Work Around the House

One of the most effective ways to lose weight is to increase your daily level of physical activity.  While a formal exercise regimen is great, you can also increase your activity by mowing the lawn, raking leaves, gardening, sweeping, mopping, dusting and doing laundry.  You might be surprised at the number of calories you will burn.  For example, one hour spent mowing the lawn will burn approximately 400 calories in a 150-pound person.  Raking leaves will burn about 300 calories per hour while vacuuming the carpet will burn approximately 240 calories.  So do a little work around the house to shed those extra pounds.  You’ll feel better and your house will look better!
