But a study by Betway Insider found that playing video games such as Fortnite and COD for a 90-minute session can help burn as much as 194 calories. It turns out video games are good at getting your heart to work and making your body release endorphins as you would during a workout. So next time you’re on your break, consider firing up your PS5.
Sleeping well for about eight hours a day is good for your health and will help you lose weight faster. Just as it’s essential to get your work done in a day, it’s also essential to give your body the time to rest and recuperate by sleeping well. If you’re stressed out, your body is more likely to hold on to fat as energy reserves, which is the opposite of what you want it to do if you’re trying to lose weight.
Eat A Lot of Fiber
Your stomach is your second brain. If it’s stressed out trying to digest hard-to-digest foods, it will not function well. However, eating foods rich in fibers will enhance digestion and reduce strain during digestion. A fiber-rich diet will also improve the absorption of nutrients and ensure your body is not having an imbalance of some, like fats.
Take Your Daily Calories Before the Afternoon
Calories are your body’s fuel. When you have an overabundance of them, your body stores them as fat deposits for future use. So it’s essential not to take calories in excess and to take them when they are most effective, in the morning and before the afternoon.
