DANCE TO LOSE WEIGHT

Follow these 10 Easy Tips to Start Dancing Your Weight Away!

There has recently been quite the hoopla around the svelte ladies on the TV show Dancing With the Stars. The professional dancers have responded with their diet secrets for staying slim and trim, offering tips like eating small meals and taking a spoonful of olive oil. Surely these methods work for some people, but if you want to lose weight, there is one thing that works for everyone: dancing.


DANCE TO LOSE WEIGHT

Vigorous dancing burns 100 calories every 10 minutes and besides being a ripping cardiovascular workout, it connects your mind, body and spirit AND makes you a more confident woman as well. Dancing costs nothing and needs no equipment except a CD player or sound system, and connects you to other human beings as well.

Whether you want to drop two or twenty pounds, there is no better way to do so than by getting on the dance floor and shaking your stuff. Anyone who goes out dancing several times a week cannot be overweight; take a look and you will see that there are no obese people in the techno crowd. Not one. Humans have been bouncing to drum beats around campfires for hundreds of thousands of years, and it is only in recent centuries that we have taken dancing out of our lives. Your body wants to dance. Let it, by joining the dance community, a group of skinny fun-lovers with big smiles and happy heads.

TIPS ON HOW TO DANCE TO LOSE WEIGHT

Dancing your weight away is not for the wallflowers of the world; this fitness regimen calls on you to be a mover AND shaker, to go after new experiences just as you are going after that slimmer silhouette. Even if you are an introvert, you CAN make dancing work for you. However there are a few guidelines to keep in mind if you want to lose weight dancing, as bobbing your head to a rock show one Saturday a month is not going to cut it. Follow these tips and you will dance your weight away.

DANCE TO LOSE WEIGHT TIP #1

Discover music that you love. You might like house music, or like punk, or like pop, but that is not good enough. You need to find music that you absolutely love, music that gets into your body and moves it for you. This will take some exploration and motivation on your part, but what could be a better goal than exposing yourself to new art on a path to a healthier body?

DANCE TO LOSE WEIGHT TIP #2

DO try this at home. Most people are a bit shy about shaking it in public, and the ones who seem like they aren’t are just faking it until they make it. To build your confidence, wait until you are home alone and crank up that jamming music and let your body do what it wants, even if your brain is trying to repress those crazy moves. Jamming out in your living room is the first step.

DANCE TO LOSE WEIGHT TIP #3

Find your dancing crowd. Whether you sashay towards ballroom or bounce towards electronica, there is a community on a dance floor nearby waiting for you to join it. Keep in mind however, although all dancing is excellent exercise, the faster the tempo, the more calories you will burn.

DANCE TO LOSE WEIGHT TIP #4

Get over yourself. Most people hate to dance because they are afraid everyone is looking at them and chuckling at their wayward arms. Guess what? They’re not looking at you. If you go out dancing with the goal of having fun in mind, you will always win.

DANCE TO LOSE WEIGHT TIP #5

Don’t try to dance. Just dance. Many people make the mistake of trying to be sexy when they dance and wind up looking like they are trying too hard. The very act of dancing IS sexy; you don’t need to cage rap video moves or use a Tootsie Pop as a prop to dance well.

DANCE TO LOSE WEIGHT TIP #6

Go out as much as you can. Find nights with no cover, or venues with no parking fees; they are out there. No one who goes out five nights a week is fat, and I bet you they are having the time of their life as well.

DANCE TO LOSE WEIGHT TIP #7

Make it count. If you can’t go out five nights a week, the nights you do go out you need to make your time on the dance floor count. In other words, get down. Don’t spend your time chatting up the bartender or fixing your hair in the bathroom; spend it on the front of the dance floor.

DANCE TO LOSE WEIGHT TIP #8

Watch the booze. Alcohol may help you loosen up mentally and physically, but downing three margaritas will not help your waistline.

DANCE TO LOSE WEIGHT TIP #9

Dancing is social; say hello. Like yoga, dancing creates a unified energy flow through your body, mind, and spirit- but throws in smiling faces and the laughter of friends as well. This addition of the human community is the icing on the cake to dancing.

See you on the dance floor!
