Lose Weight While Watching TV ...

It isn’t just men who are guilty of leading a mostly sedentary lifestyle** and succumbing to the temptations of being a couch potato. Women **can easily fall into this trap, too.

I admit that I do have this TV addiction -I spend hours in front of the television** **watching sitcoms, “Grey’s Anatomy” and other TV series - even when they’re reruns!

What’s someone like me to do to finally get rid of this sedentary lifestyle?

This article from Life Hack tells us exactly how we can lose weight while watching TV:

What would happen over the course of a year if our average TV watcher got off the couch** and did some simple, easy-to-do step-ups (stepping up and down on a box, step, platform) every time the ads **were on? The answer is quite staggering.
The author went on to provide the figures. Here’s one example:
**Weight of subject: 150 lbs (68 kgs)**Daily stepping commitment: 15 x 3 mins

Additional energy expended per day (8 inch box): 460 cals
Additional energy expended per day (12 inch box): 552 cals
Additional energy expended per year (8 inch box): 167,900 cals
Additional energy expended per year (12 inch box): 201,480 cals
**
Potential weight loss for the year (8 inch box): 48 lbs (21.8 kgs)**
Potential weight loss for the year (12 inch box): 57.6 lbs (26.1 kgs)

Imagine that! You can do some simple step-up exercises in between commercials, and you can shed off at least 48 lbs in one year!

Okay, so it’s time for me to don those sweat pants, get a 12-inch box and do those step-up exercises in between the TV ads -most of them are annoying, anyway. What about you, have you come across any innovative methods to lose weight?
