5 Fat Burning Tips for Weight Loss

5 Fat Burning Tips for Weight Loss

When it comes to burning fat, it can be a dicey issue. There are so many ways and aids, but not all work for everyone because we all respond different. There are some groups who have great results and respond well to a nutrition plan or training and there are others that have a different fat burning threshold.
Here are 5 fat loss tips that are general and regardless of your degree of burn, you should respond if you are consistent and patient. Remember, Don’t Rush the Beat!

1. Portion control and what does it mean?
I don’t 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.

Control portions by having reasonable helpings of foods which are not threatening to your goals. Do have 6+ small meals per day - THAT is what controlling your portions is, but do not limit yourself to less than 3 meals per day or to having very low calories.

Your metabolism needs to be fired up to burn fat and eating every 2-3 hours will do this in the optimal way. Go big on dark leafy greens, large portions of this are great, fill up on fibre and you won’t feel hungry.

The protein should be lean and will aid in appetite control so that your starchy carb doesn’t have to be a large portion. Do eat good fats in moderate portions, going too low or too high is adverse to your goals.

2. Go dark green.

As I mentioned in tip 1, go for the broccoli, green beans, and collard or mustard greens for half of your carb intake. Then you can have orange veggies, legumes, and some higher protein grains such as oats. All these foods are considered whole foods, easy to prepare, fast to cook and perfect for burning fat.

3. Do cardio after your weight session.

You don’t get into your fat burning zone for about 15-20 minutes, so if you do the weights beforehand you will get into fat burning a bit sooner making your cardio more efficient and effective. There is also the roundabout way by doing anaerobic type cardio such as intervals or HIT training.

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.

5, 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 way.
