More ways to boost your burn!
✤ Count steps Wear a Fitbit activity tracker like Noelle and Lorraine or use the step counter on your cellphone. A Stanford study found that seeing steps rack up motivates us to walk an extra mile a day! ✤ Enjoy the view All of our successful slimmers stroll outdoors, which is a smart move. Japanese researchers found walking in nature is so soothing, it reduces fattening stress hormones an extra 16%. ✤ Play fat-blast tunes Walking to music inspires us to go an extra 10,000 steps a week, according to one study. Noelle gets a boost from tunes like “Imagine” by John Lennon and “Fight Song” by Rachel Platten. ✤ Add a minty burst “Sometimes when I walk, I’ll chew gum,” shares Meg.
