How to lose weight with Amazon Prime Day
Five great deals to help you shed pounds and save dollars
Discovering “how to lose weight with Amazon Prime Day” might seem like an odd idea at first, but hear us out. Among the avalanche of reductions available during the online retail behemoth’s annual event is a selection of mighty fine fitness kit, supplements, wearables and more - each one able to help you hit your health goals in its own unique way.
For example, you can snap up one of the best adjustable dumbbells - this NordicTrack 50lb iSelect pair - for a relative steal, with a 30% saving taking their price from $429.99 to $300. With these versatile free weights in hand, you’ve got all you need to start weight training from the comfort of your own home - a great way to burn calories, shed fat and build muscle.
Another demonstrable method to achieve a calorie deficit and lose weight is through increasing your non-exercise activity thermogenesis or NEAT. (For anyone wondering, “What is non-exercise activity thermogenesis?”, we’ve put together a detailed feature containing all the information you need to know.)
In the simplest terms, NEAT refers to the energy you burn through doing activities outside of formal exercise, such as walking to the shops or fidgeting, and it accounts for a far larger proportion of your total daily energy expenditure than most people expect.
The best fitness trackers (like the Garmin Fenix 6 Pro, which has had its price slashed 17% to $498 this Amazon Prime Day) can motivate you to hit a daily step goal, increasing your NEAT and overall daily energy expenditure, helping you create a calorie deficit and lose weight as a result.
Read on to find out about more of the best health and fitness savings you can make this Amazon Prime Day.
