Women lose more calories by cleaning the bathtub or vacuuming than they do by exercising

Lose weight from house cleaning!

Over the past year, the Wii and Wii Fit have literally taken over the world. More and more people are setting up a fitness room at home, doing yoga with a TV instructor, as well as doing a huge number of other exercises. Articles have appeared in the media more than once that exercising with Wii Fit helps people lose weight. However, researchers from the UK recently found out that there is a much more effective way to burn extra calories. This is… house cleaning. Cleaning the bathtub, washing the glass in the windows or working with a vacuum cleaner, women lose more weight than during special sports exercises.

Researchers compared the effectiveness of 10 minutes of exercise on Wii Fit and 10 minutes of cleaning. It turned out that in the first case, women burn an average of 25 calories, and in the second - from 34 to 42. Only a treadmill can give even more impressive results. It burns 115 calories in 10 minutes.

True, daily house cleaning isn't as much fun as Wii Fit, but more rewarding. And not only for he alth, but for the entire household. By the way, scientists strongly recommend that those who want to lose weight, first of all, burn calories. If you managed to get rid of 3,500 calories, that means you have removed a pound of fat from the body!
