Kiss your gym membership goodbye – you don’t actually need any fancy equipment to lose weight.

Living an active lifestyle can be all it takes to help you fight the flab.

Doing your household chores is a simple way to torch calories without thinking about it.

And engaging in more fun activities, such as bowling or having sex, are other ways to blast belly fat.

So what are the easiest ways to burn 500 calories with minimal effort?

1. Bowling

Working out can feel like a chore, especially if you’re doing it on your own.

Thankfully, there are ways to trick your brain into getting some exercise.

2. Hula hooping

You can burn more than 420 calories by hula hooping for an hour.

To make the workout tricker, and torch more belly fat, try adding weights to the ring.

Varying your speed, changing direction and adjusting your foot position are other ways to ramp up the difficulty.

3. Playing golf

You don’t have to restrict yourself to the gym if you’re looking to lose weight.

Getting outdoors can be just as effective and even more satisfying.

You can expect to burn around 500 calories for every two hours of golf you play.

If you’re lugging around heavy equipment and doing plenty of walking, this figure can reach a whopping 720 calories in the same time.
