Are the holidays a time when you throw all your good intentions out, and eat whatever you want? Is Thanksgiving just not Thanksgiving without Grandma’s famous pies?

How would you like to burn more calories without spending more time at the gym? You don’t need any magic formula to break through a weight-loss plateau or slim down faster. A few simple changes can make your workouts more efficient.
Burning more calories is a matter of what kind of exercises you do and how you do them. Read these tips before your next workout.
Burning More Calories by Changing What You Do
Take a dip. If you love the water, swimming torches more than 500 calories an hour. If you prefer to stay dry, rowing consumes almost 700.
Jump rope. When you’re pressed for time, lose 10 calories a minute by jumping rope. The results will add up quickly.
Strap on skates. Skating requires about as much energy as running, but you may have so much fun you’ll forget you’re exercising. Many rinks provide lessons in case you’re a newcomer or want to brush up on the skating skills you learned as a kid.
Play sports. Lots of sports provide an intense workout. Basketball and singles tennis can burn over 700 calories an hour. For a gentler experience, how about volleyball or softball for about half those figures.
