A calorie is simply a unit of energy. Specifically, a calorie is the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water by roughly 2 degrees Fahrenheit. So, in order to burn more calories you have to find ways to burn more energy throughout the day. Try taking the stairs instead of the elevator for example, or park further away from your workplace – requiring you to walk more. In addition to the little things such as those just mentioned, strength training is one of the most effective ways for you to burn more calories because it helps to maintain or even increase your muscle tissue. As you challenge your muscles through strength training, it requires energy (calories) for your body to repair and rebuild them, which ultimately makes them stronger and more toned. Try to perform strength training exercise 2-3 days a week using whole-body moves that challenge multiple muscles at the same time like the Squat, Curl, to Overhead Press with 2-Arms.
