Do This Super-Simple Move to Burn an Extra 200 Calories a Day

“The real move: stand on one leg. When it comes to calories, standing burns more than sitting–about 30 to 50 more per hour. Standing on one leg ("unipedal standing,” if you’re fancy) ups the ante, burning another 20 to 30 more calories on top of that–while also engaging your core muscles and improving your balance.“

"If you want to challenge yourself even more, slowly straighten your leg in front of you, then swivel it to the back. Standing on one leg in 10 to 12 five-minute increments can add up to an extra 200 calories per day–not bad at all!
