Anybody who is looking to lose weight and tone up always hopes for 2 things. To shed the pounds as fast as possible and to do wit with the least amount of effort required. As difficult as it may be to admit it, generally people prefer shortcuts and the easy way out.
Fat loss is not an easy feat and it takes time and effort. There is absolutely no doubt about that. However, there are a few tricks that one may use to get the most out of their workouts and speed up the process of fat loss. This article will offer you 4 tips that will put your weight loss quest on fast forward.
The first tip is to do a cardio workout the moment you wake. Basically, that means that you wake up, do your morning ablutions, have a glass of water and start your cardio workout for about 30 to 45 minutes. You are not supposed to consume any food or calorie containing drink before your workout.
What this does, is that it forces your body to access its fat stores for energy. Your body will be in a fasted state. So, your body has no choice but to burn the fats instead of whatever food you ate. It is recommended that you do your cardio at a moderate pace just enough to elevate your heart rate and get you sweating. If you do hard cardio, you will risk burning up your muscle. So, it’s best not to overdo it.
The second tip would be to eat all your required carbs for the day during your first meal. It would be preferable if your first meal was about 20 to 30 minutes after your cardio workout.
The reasoning behind this is that your body will have an entire day to burn off the carbohydrates and there will be fewer chances of excess carbs being converted to fat stores. However, you will need to consume your proteins throughout the day because your body will need the protein.
The third tip is to use a fat burner. This is a highly debatable topic since there are 2 differing points of view. Some people recommend fat burners highly. Others swear that these pills are not effective and unnecessary. The point to note here is that if you decide to take a fat burner, you MUST have your nutrition and training under total control.
You must be training hard and eating right. If everything is in place, taking fat burners will give you an added edge. It is a means to an end and not an end in itself. You will gain a boost to your efforts and it will psychologically motivate you too.
The last tip is motivation. The number one reason most people do not meet their desired weight is that they give up. Their motivation tapers off and finally, they do not have any reasons for going on. It happens to the best of us.
Motivate yourself by subscribing to fitness channels on YouTube. Watch body transformation videos, like pages on Facebook that are dedicated to fitness motivation, write your weight loss goal and read it daily. Keep on keeping on.
These are the 4 crucial tips to burning fat 3 times faster. They may seem like common sense and it’s so easy to overlook them. Especially tip 4. Yet, it is the most crucial tip. Skipping a day of training may not seem like much. But do it twice a week for a month and you’d have wasted the opportunity to burn about 3000 calories. So, remember these tips and apply them.
