Moreover, wine also has many health benefits so that is an added advantage on top of not putting extra pounds by drinking other calorie rich beverages.

  1. Go Shopping

You could rather consider going out shopping with your friends and family which would also mean a lot of walking around and burning a good amount of fat.

Hence, burn those extra calories on weekends by walking to local grocery and retail stores or shopping malls and carry the products back home to reap weight training benefits. 


  1. Adjust Your Brunch Orders

We all love to treat ourselves with attractive and yummy food products like pancakes, waffles, and ice creams during our brunch outings, however, them being heavy on additives; it is advised to stick to eggs instead. No matter how you order the eggs–scrambled, over easy, over medium, omelet, hard-boiled, you’re consuming a complete protein that keeps you feeling full for hours. Eating the yolks is particularly helpful because of its choline content. The nutrient boosts the metabolism and burns belly fat.
