  23. dude green tea also helps protect your immune system it’s pretty interesting what you can learn online right???
    hilz

  24. Yeah…. these aren’t going to burn enough calories to lose weight. If you really want to lose weight there’s only the old fashion way if you want to keep it off… work out and eat right.

  25. I think the celery is prob the best tip here, i have heard that you burn more calories eating it than the celery contains, instead of chocolate, i should eat celery and take it to work and everytime i am offered a biscuit, or something naughty (which is frequently as we get lots of freebies) i should have a stick of celery, unfortunately i hate the stuff, i might give it a go for a couple of weeks though and see if i can loose a few pounds.

  26. Wow. Kissing? Cool ;)

  27. Some of these aren’t true. You don’t burn 100 calories for 20 seconds of cold shower water. Every 20 steps you burn about 1 calorie. Increase the number of steps you take per day. 1 pound = 3500 calories. Good luck :)

  28. Awesome!! Ive heard so much about taking freezing cold showers/baths that each degree you bring your body down means you burn another 100 or was it 200….lolz don’t member! Something like that!! I’ll try that next time I take a 30 min long hot shower, cold will leave hot water for other and help burn more.

  29. Great tips, I’ll keep them in mind. I like to get free diet plans online(http://www.fitclick.com/diet_plan) and exercise on a daily basis. Exercise and healthy eating is a great way to maintain a healthy body.

  30. taking a cold shower deosnt burn 100 calories that is just dumb. When wrestlers and fighter drop weight they don’t go hop in a cold shower for a minute. They go and exercise.

  31. About the doubt regarding the shower issue, anything that brings your core temperature down and then you yourself moving to bring it back up will burn calories. I prefer to drink ice water to a cold shower or bath because, well, its easier and more comfortable. Don’t think you can stand under the warm water after the cold and still burn a lot of cals.

    Lately I’ve been dancing like an absolute idiot for 15min to a fast tempo playlist when I first wake up. It gets my heart pumping better than any cardio at the gym. And I mean crazy dancing, even my two year old gives me a funny look.

    It makes me think back to when I was a teenager and used to dance (for fun) everyday after school, in the morning, at parties with friends. I have a VERY under-active thyroid, and have since I was 11 but managed to stay slender through high school without medication. It’s kind of an experiment of mine to see if I can do that again.

  32. Omg I am so gonna try these tip they sound
    Really fun !!!!! :) oh an about the crazy dancing I tried it an it made my mom go coco !!!!:) she’ll live ;) thanx !!!!!

  33. Lol the dude saw me singing rally loud and ran away!!!
    Anyway thanx for the tips
