Staying at home watching your favourite TV drama can be real disaster for your appearance - it is widely known. According to some studies one hour spent in front of TV will give you extra 200 calories, that could be burned. For an year this means about 10-12 extra pounds! This is a lot of extra weight to loose!
Some tips not to get fat while watching your favourite TV show.
Whoa! I hadn't heard for one hour spent in front of the t.v. you can get an extra 200 calories that could be burned.!! Yikes.
Now that's motivation and incentive! I have a small t.v. in front of my treadmill and have it with the closed captioning so I can read what is being said. Plus for an added distraction, I listen to my iPod.
