Sure, working out and doing resistance
training absolutely aids in body recomposition (making your body look different) and some cals are burned.
NEAT (non exercise activity thermogenesis) is a "key factor" in long term weight loss and maintenance...so along with eating adequately for you and your goals (not necessarily a specific diet or ANY "special" foods or supplements) just try to be more active in general.
Having a daily step goal is one way to help improve your NEAT.
5000 steps is a typical goal....use your phone, pedometer, fitbit or other tracker to help you set a base goal and then increase it a little each day....even 50 more steps, by the end of the week you could have 500-1000 or more extra steps.
5000 then 5050, then 5100, 5150 and so on.
Don't get hung up on the numbers either. Last week I didn't have phone (tracker) with me and I walked a mile on an indoor track carrying in my arms my 1 year old who is 20 pounds. That counted whether I recorded it or not.
Other ways to increase NEAT:
Quietly tap foot at work (keyword..quietly)
Leg extensions under your desk
Walk instead of stairs whenever possible
Dance/bop while you cook your dinner
Walk the dog a little farther
Walk to mailbox instead of stopping when in vehicle
Push mow part of the lawn
Make multiple trips from the car to kitchen with groceries (I hate this, too!)
Dance with the kids any time or dance without them....just Dance.
So many things you can try or do without an actual workout (which I do love those).
What do you do?
