    Calorie burning trikcs

    Does anyone have unusual calorie burning tips that they use? personally, I chew gum for several hours a day and try to constantly be tapping my feet. Any subtle ways to increase calorie expenditure?

    Almost any thing like this is going to burn so few calories that it's not worth worrying about.
    Give me liberty. Exploration of other options will be vigorously discouraged.

    Eat real food and dedicate some of your time to REAL exercise. Just don't waste your time with ideas like that...
    Your body will lose the fat if you give it the right stimuli, trust me.

    I've lost patience with tricks, in general.

    If the fat and carbs and protein are good quality and in the right proportion and timed fairly well, you shouldn't need to try to force your system to have a higher metabolic rate.

    I read someplace that keeping the metabolism cranked up to high most of the time leads to wearing out the body before its time. Grok worked hard now and then, but then lay around in hammocks, is my impression.

    As noted, diet is the primary factor.

    Beyond that, individual results vary, but one thing that seems to help me is lots of exposure to cold, prompting my body to make more heat. Cold water in the shower; cold air when I go for morning walks minimally dressed; cold wind when I drive with the windows down, etc. Never to the point of extreme discomfort, but certainly to the point where my heart beats a little faster and I breathe a little heavier for a while. Of course, it could just be my imagination; it's not like I've done a controlled experiment.

    Chew gum for SEVERAL hours a day? You're looking at some pretty negative symptoms coming your way if you don't change up your lifestyle...

    It's not about calories. It's about what kind of foods you're eating. The "calorie burning tricks" are for CW dieters, not PBers.
    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.
