SARAH Beeny, founder of online es­tate agents Tepilo, to­day re­veals how a house move may be stress­ful, but could work won­ders for weight loss.

Tepilo asked a num­ber of buy­ers and sell­ers to use a pe­dome­ter while mov­ing house and dis­cov­ered that the av­er­age house move can burn off up to 5,000 calo­ries, the equiv­a­lent to 33 bars of choco­late.

Will Cooke, 27, from Lon­don, racked up 17,029 steps in just one day while mov­ing in-be­tween flats. Us­ing a pe­dome­ter cal­cu­la­tor, with an av­er­age weight of 180lbs for a man walk­ing at 3mph, this equated to 850 calo­ries lost. With the av­er­age move last­ing 5-7 days all to­gether, this could mean 1.5lbs dur­ing the week of the move.
