How to burn more calories?
Calories are burned by activity, the more vigorous the activity is, the more calories you will burn. Specifically, High-Intensity Interval Training burns more calories in a short duration than Low-Intensity Training.
Also, the more your weight is, the more calories you burn per unit time. We can say that Running is the best activity you can do to burn more calories.
But, there are other ways to burn more calories other than activity. Building muscle mass makes your body burn more calories so it can survive life with this level of muscularity.
Meaning that strength-training can burn more calories effectively by increasing your muscle mass. On top of that, there are some habits that if you follow, will effectively burn more calories. Therefore, you lose more weight.
Like walking, for example. Walking to your work instead of driving, taking the stairs instead of the elevator, and getting high-quality sleep are some of the healthy and calorie-burning habits you can follow.
