Written by Olivia Jones

Burning calories is not as easy as piling them on. The foods we eat are packed with calories, and unless you are keen on counting calories, you will be shocked at how fast they pile up with seemingly small portions of food. To counter this, you have to either keep counting calories, which is quite a hassle on its own or work them out. There are a few exercises you can do to lose up to 2000 calories and also have fun in the process. You may not be able to burn that many calories in your first go, but you can develop a daily routine and slowly work your way up. Here are some of the most efficient ways to lose calories quickly.

1. Cycling

 

Cycling is one of the best cardio training methods, and it maximizes weight loss. Just one hour of intense riding can bring about the loss of 850 calories! If you live in an area where it is safe to ride a bike, or you are in proximity to a park, you can utilize the opportunity. Look for a partner for motivational purposes and ride those calories off! If you live in a congested city where it is not possible to ride around, then you can also invest in a stationary bike which works just as well, if not better. The stationary bike is better in the sense that you can work out any time you want regardless of the weather or traffic conditions. It is best to keep well hydrated while working out.

Rope jumping is no longer a reserve for young children as was the case in the past. It is a fun way to lose calories, and a perfect way to tone your body. The intensity is what matters most, the more intense the workout, the more calories you lose. If you are a beginner, it is best to start off with 20 minutes, then gradually increase the intensity as your body gets used to it.
