But there is no secret way to lose weight.  There are no shortcuts here. According to doctors and dieticians, there is no substitute for weight loss through exercise and sweating.

With some important things in mind, you can lose extra calories without going to the gym.

The Key To Reducing Fat Is Sweating In Daily Life:

Exercise alone does not burn calories. We burn calories when we talk, play, laugh and even when we sleep. The rate of calorie burning is higher during physical activities and lower during leisure time. If you have an idea of how many calories are burned throughout the day, then you chalk out your daily routine accordingly.


30 minutes of walking on a treadmill can burn the same amount of calories as daily household chores. Dusting the house is quite a laborious task. Sweeping the house, cleaning the fan, etc. burns about 200 calories. Also, it helps a lot to strengthen the arm and waist muscles.


Frequent house cleaning actually helps to lose weight very effectively without the gymming. House regularly. Make sure to follow the additional method of wiping the house with wet rags while sitting on the floor.  Experts say that if you can mop at least 4 rooms a day, about 180 calories can be burned easily.


Dance is especially useful for losing weight and keeping the mind happy. A 45 minutes daily dancing routine with your favorite music can burn 200 calories effortlessly.


If gardening is your hobby, you can easily lose weight without going to the gym. Take care of the trees, dig the soil, fertilize the roots, prune the garden – do all the work by yourself. It will help you to reduce excess fat and stay healthy. Daily gardening burns about 400 to 450 calories. At the same time, the muscles of the arms, back, waist and thighs become stronger and toned.


Walk as much as you can. Just by walking 10 minutes every day, you can burn around 40 calories.

Home Makeover:

Do it yourself without any professional help.  You can burn 210 calories every 30 minutes while painting the house. Changing the carpet will burn about 180 calories.
