13 Fun And Weird Ways To Burn 200 Calories

After taking a look at what 200 calories looks like a few months ago, we thought: What is it looks like to burn 200 calories off?

Sure, the average person who runs for a good 20 minutes will burn roughly 200 calories. But is not really the most fun or weird way to burn 200 calories. For example:

13 Fun And Weird Ways To Burn 200 Calories

1. Why not chewing gum for 18 hours to burn off those 200 calories? Chewing gum contains about 10 calories per piece, so if you’d took a new piece every hour you’d basically be breaking even.

2. Try applying love lip-balm 1500 times to burn 200 calories.

3. And why not put those glossy lips to good use with 2 hours of kissing your love interest?

4. If things heat up, you only need an hour of making love to burn off 200 calories.

5. But before all that, you may want to spend 45 sessions brushing your teeth (2 min each).

6. Prefer a more passive route? How about simply watching TV? Spend a good 2 and a half hours surfing through channels, and you’ll actually burn those 200 calories. Watch something hilarious and you’ll only need 4 commercial free sitcoms with consistent laughter.

7. If you’re bored and happen to fall asleep, you’ll need over 3 hours to burn the same amount. But you will be burning calories even in your sleep!

8. Instead of surfing channels, what about actually surfing? You can cut your time down to an hour by hitting the waves all the while getting that much desired tan.

9. And if you get a mouthful of water in the process, don’t worry. Simply drinking 8 glasses of water will burn an extra 70 calories a day – fresh water that is. Meaning, after 3 days of the recommended daily water intake, you’d have burned off that 200 calories. But don’t try to sneak it all in one day! Drinking too much water can actually be dangerous.

10. Don’t want to wait days? Try some intense skipping for 15 minutes.

11. Or if you’re having a good day, why not let the world know by singing your favourite pop song 23 times?

12. But if you’re shower head is the only one who appreciates your vocals, how about playing chopsticks on the piano for an hour and a half?

13. Or put those fingers to use by typing out a 4,800 word short story, about burning 200 calories.

And while 200 calories is an arbitrary number we have chosen, a pound of fat is equivalent to roughly 3500 calories. So, burn away! Though, it’s important to remember that how many calories your body burns during these activities is dependent on your size, gender, and general body makeup.
