Fat Loss Tips - Top 5 Fat Burning Tips For Weight Loss
it comes to burning fat we find a dicey issue. There are so many
ways, so many aids and not all work for everyone because we all
respond different. There are some groups who do have like results
and respond to like diet or training but we have many groups and
each one has a different fat burning threshold.
There are some tips that I can share with you which are general
and regardless of the degree of burn, you should respond if you
are consistent and patient.
Fat Loss Tip #1 - Portion control
and what does it mean?
Well I personally dont believe in portion control to the
effect of limiting the amount of food so that you are hungry! I
do agree that you do not want to push yourself to the point of moaning
and unzipping! Taste has to be a bit compromised in the way that
you must not over eat items you enjoy. Control portions by having
reasonable helpings of foods which are not threatening to your goals.
Do have 6+ small meals per day - THAT is controlling your portions
in my eyes, but do not limit yourself to less than 3 meals per day
or very low calories.
Your metabolism needs to be fired up to burn fat, by eating every
2-3 hours you are doing exactly this which is the optimal way. Go
big on dark leafy greens, large portions of this is great, fill
up on that fiber and you wont feel hungry, then the protein
should be lean and will aid in appetite control so that your starchy
carb does not have to be a large portion, keep this controlled to
moderation. Do eat good fats in moderate portions, going too low
or too high is adverse to your goals.
Fat Loss Tip #2 - Go dark green.
As I mentioned in tip 1, go for the broccoli, green beans, and collard
or mustard greens for half of our carb intake. Then you can have
orange veggies, legumes, and some higher protein grains such as
oats and quinoa. All these foods are considered whole foods, are
easy to prepare, fast to cook and perfect for burning fat.
Fat Loss Tip #3 - Do cardio after
your weight session.
You dont get into your fat burning zone for about 15-20 minutes
so if you do the weights before hand you will get into fat burning
a bit sooner making your cardio more efficient and effective. There
is also the round about way by doing anaerobic type cardio such
as intervals or HIIT
Fat Loss Tip #4 - Avoid starchy
carbs in the evening.
Your bodies works better assimilating proteins at the end of day
and while sleeping so go for lean proteins and the leafy green veggies
for the carbs. Casein is also said to work best at night but not
all dairy has this so watch for which do and go for lower fat options
or get the powder. This is also a sleep aid for some people.
Fat Loss Tip #5 - Last but not
least is resistance training.
Cardio and diet alone is not enough. In order to burn more calories
naturally you want to build muscle. Not to say you need to build
very obvious muscle if you do not wish to, and that is not so easy
even if you try! Muscle needs fuel too so by enhancing your lean
muscle mass to some degree will also aid in fat burning in a huge
