On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing a simple Live Lean lifestyle hack, on how to easily burn more calories throughout the day, without moving.
This tip is one of the easiest ways to burn an extra 630 calories, and it has nothing to do with exercising more.
Sometimes even the easiest lifestyle habits can have a positive impact on your journey to Live Lean.

Burning an extra 630 calories a week is the equivalent of doing one intense Live Lean Afterburn 2.0 style workout a week, or two 30 minute conventional workouts.
By simply standing a few more hours a day, rather than sitting, you’re essentially getting the equivalent calorie burn as if you did an extra 1-2 workouts per week.
This Live Lean lifestyle hack of standing more is starting to sound good now, right?
Throughout the day, I’m not saying you need to log in your journal every minute when you are standing versus when you are sitting.

If you’re looking for a few extra bonus points, try this.
