Let’s be honest, burning serious amounts of fat is no task for the faint of heart. But it can be done if you are committed and dedicated to the difficult lifestyle you must live to achieve great results. Though there are multiple practices and techniques that can turn you into a fat burning machine, we have provided a few tips and tricks that can help you achieve your goals on your fat burning journey.
Reduce Temptation – Don’t get it twisted. If there are foods or drinks in your house that you know you shouldn’t be eating because of its awful nutritional make up, you will at some point convince yourself to eat it. Whether it be because you "had a rough day" or you "there’s nothing else to eat'', one way or another, that food will find its way into your stomach. Best way to avoid this? Yup, you guessed – throw it out today! Clear your house of all the foods and drinks that you know will not positively affect your fat burning goals.
Get Intense! – So, you go on long runs outside or on the treadmill, which is fantastic! However, steady state cardio, such as long runs, are only beneficial during the time you are working out. When on a High Intensity Interval Training (H.I.I.T) program, not only are you burning fat during your workout, you continue to burn fat for hours after your workout too. This is because H.I.I.T causes your metabolic rate to increase, while also increasing your fat oxidation rate – using unwanted fat as an energy source. Ideally, steady rate cardio and H.I.I.T used together produces the best results, but if you were to do one or the other, H.I.I.T is the way to go.
Bottom line – Burning Fat is not easy. However, you can be smart about it and achieve your goals quicker using these tips daily! Should you use these tips, Happy Fat Burning!
