  • a typical 2 hour TV night and you'll burn an extra 270 calories a day - which can translate to a 28 pound weight loss in a year.

  • 7. Increase Your Fiber Intake 
Skimping on fiber will make you gain weight. Forget the pretzels and go for a bag of low-fat popcorn. It has five times the fiber and only 90 calories for six cups, so it's filling and satisfying.
