Many things can make us a drop a few lbs during our daily life food or exercise, even if you dont think it is.
Cutting back on soda, and other sugar added beverages can reduce body fat. Added sugars do not burn as fast as simple sugars (found in some foods).
Seeing Fat Free does not mean always that it is that either. Twistlers for instance, "Fat Free", however, the sugar content in the package is very
high. Burning that amount of sugar off before it turns to fat is really bad.
Instead of Twistlers or snacks like that, try dehydrated fruits. Low sugar beverages, that are water based are better than carbonated beverages;
however fruit juices are both high in sugar and in carbohydrates, diet iced teas (low in carbs and sugars), water (duuh) and even low to skim milk are
a better choice.
When it comes to burning calories, since when you are standing your muscles are not at rest, I can see how you can burn some calories, being
significant though? No. NOW, if you were standing and flexing...maybe.
I'd rather do a full work out and be happy. Howeve everything you do burns calories if you do it long enough...
