Doing challenging exercise also boosts your metabolism.Action Plan
Kick up your workout with this routine from Coopersmith:
- Alternate walking at moderate intensity for three minutes with speed-walking for two minutes. Do this for 30 minutes, then add five minutes of moderate walking at the end.
- Try it five times a week and you'll burn 500 more calories weekly than you would with a moderate walking routine.
