Bizarre Ways to Burn 200 Calories That Don't Involve Exercise

Things are about to get a little weird.

If you overdid it again on the chocolate (or pizza, or tacos, or popsicles) your first thought might be to lace up your sneakers and burn some calories on a quick run. But the guys at AsapSCIENCE have a few alternatives for blasting calories that don't require going anywhere near the gym.

As they explain in the video, you can kiss your significant other for two hours (that sounds a lot more fun than jogging, right?) to burn 200 calories. And don't forget to put on lip balm — apply it 1,500 times and you'll nix an additional 200 calories.

Single ladies can burn 200 calories, too: Spend 2.5 hours surfing reality TV shows, or sing your favorite pop song 23 times.

Of course losing weight takes a lot more effort than just driving your friends crazy by chomping on gum for 18 hours straight (which also burns 200 calories). Dropping a single pound of fat requires a reduction of 3,500 calories, which is best achieved over time through healthy eating and exercise.

But if you like learning about strange things as much as we do, we still recommend you check out the video above for even more weird ways to burn calories.
