Studies show that a woman needs to spend 3,500 calories to reduce her weight by 2 pounds/week, and for men are needed 4,000 calories spent to loose 2 pounds/week. Losing 8 pounds/month is considered to be a healthy weight lost. So, The $1 million question, asked by people little fond of sports and exercising is: How can I looses 3,500 – 4,000 calories/week without sport, nor exercising? Guess what, this is their lucky day. They’ll find the answers reading these rows.
Let’s refresh some knowledge about calories’ issue: Food is the source of calories for our body. Out of the whole calories we take on daily basis with food, 2,000 calories (for women) and 2,500 calories (for men) are needed to perform normal physiological activities of the body and to maintain existing weight. The rest of calories received, if not spent, are deposited as fat in our body. This is the part we want so much to get rid off.
Today, we shall not talk about the food part. All our attention will be focused on how to loose extra calories maintaining the same food regime (without adding sweets and dough foods). Our task is to find activities that will lead in spending 500 more calories every day. Our pre-condition set is to find activities that does not interfere our actual life style and we do not find stressful.
Same activities have different impact on people with different weights. For this article, we’ve considered two cases: one individual weighting 150 pounds and another 200 pounds.

For those standing in between of these weights, they may counts your result of calories’ lost somewhere on the interval.
