30 Fast, New Fat-Burners

Wolf some protein. A calorie is a calorie, but your body burns about 25 to 30 of them while digesting 100 calories of protein versus only 7 of them while digesting 100 calories of simple carbs, says Barbara Vinciguerra, MS, an adjunct professor in the movement-sciences department at Westfield State College in Westfield, Mass.

Think uphill. Forget flat treadmill walking; crank up the incline and you’ll jack up the calories burned, says Tommy Boone, an exercise physiologist at the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, Minn. A woman walking at 4 miles per hour for 30 minutes blasts off 12% more calories on a 2% incline and nearly 35% more calories on a 5% incline.

Fidget. People who jiggle their legs, talk with their hands, and incorporate small movements into their day can burn as much as 350 extra calories daily, according to research from the Mayo Clinic.
