Clean your house. No more griping about housework—active chores can zap calories. A 130-pound woman can burn more than 50 calories in 15 minutes of washing windows or vacuuming carpets. And 15 minutes of sweeping out your garage or raking leaves will erase almost 60 calories.
Weed off the weight. Nurturing plants or pulling weeds will melt calories: A 130-pound woman can expend almost 74 calories in 15 minutes.
