How to Act Like a Naturally Thin Person

I stumbled across an article on Yahoo! Shine that instructs those of us with a little extra meat on our bones how to adopt the habits of those that are naturally thin. Now, I'm aware that incorporating protein in one's diet is a great way to keep the appetite satiated, and that avoiding cream in one's coffee can easily knock off extra calories. Yet, I had no idea that I should "alternate standing on one leg" while brushing my teeth. Apparently, doing this balancing act can assist in developing strength in the body's core muscles. See 13 Habits of Naturally Thin People for more quirky ways to burn calories and keep extra pounds at bay.

This is a really great article. I really liked the one about the comfy clothes. I'm a college student and I know for sure that I walk way more when I'm in my sweats and t-shirts compared to when I have to dress up for a presentation. The leg lifts while waiting for coffee was an excellent one too!

Very interesting. I'm gonna try the coffee leg lifts and the hard boiled egg tip tomorrow.

I guess being fidgety helps burn calories. The bottom line is, we gotta keep our bodies movin'!
