Remember the day when losing weight was as simple as eating a little bit less, working out for a few weeks or cutting out garbage foods like pizza for a few meals?
You would step on the scale days later and not only see the number you like, but also look in the mirror and feel thinner than ever.
What happened? When did your body stop working for you and turn on you?
Why is fat loss so difficult and take so much time (if it happens at all)?
Yes, it’s true we don’t burn fat like when did when we were 20 and it can be VERY frustrating.
What I’m going to share with you are a few simple tricks you can do to turn up your metabolism and see faster fat loss.
If you’re reading this, you probably have either been working out or have been thinking of working out. You’re also probably frustrated that either your plan is not working, or that you simply haven’t started.
These simple steps will give you everything you need to see faster fat loss as you get started with a new plan or move forward with your current one.
3 Tricks To Burn Fat Faster
Trick #1 Cut sugar OUT (secret hidden sources)
If there’s one thing that you can do starting today that will make a massive difference in how you look and feel, it’s cutting out sugar from your diet.
Sugar provides calories, with ZERO nutrient benefit. What this means for you is that you take in energy, feel a “full” and “good feeling” rush, while secretly your body is starving for rich nutrients you get from proteins, vegetables and fruits.
This means you will definitely overeat whether you like it or not. If you fight off the hunger cravings, your hormones will eventually win and force you to eat everything in sight!
Here’s the benefits to cutting out sugar as doing so will….
- Balance out your energy through the day
- Curb hunger cravings, preventing overeating
- Keep your body in a “fat burning mode”
Trick #2 Set Goals With Your Intake
You can “eat clean” all you like, but when it boils down to it if you are eating only veggies and chicken, you can STILL overeat.
Look at this example….
Jane’s metabolism is 1,600 calories per day – how much she burns throughout her day
Jane “eats clean” and has 2,000 calories of healthy fats from nuts & seeds, along with chicken and veggies for most of her food intake
Jane over-ate by 400 calories and is frustrated that she’s not seeing results after “watching what she eats”. Jane believes she’ll never be able to lose body fat…
It’s a pain in the butt to learn the calorie, fat, carb and protein value of our foods – but what it does for us is take our nutrition to the next level. By knowing specifically what our favorite foods are worth, we can eat with confidence and fight any fat gain, and lose weight at will.
It’s not completely as simple as “calories in, calories out” – but no one ever lost 20 pounds by overeating with “healthy foods” every day!
Learn the value of your favorite foods and it will massively go a long way in seeing weight maintenance as a breeze.
Trick #3 Match Your Intake To Your Activity
Often times we’ll find that overeating, “cheating” or out-right binge eating happens on the weekends. This makes a ton of sense considering that’s when the week dies down and we want to relax and enjoy the company of friends and family.
That also goes hand in hand with unhealthy foods and alcohol – a “perfect storm” for weight gain!
What’s the solution? Can you literally have your cake and eat it?
There’s a simple way to fight fat gain, if not easily maintain every week. The trick here is, make your MOST intense workout happen the same day as your excess calories.
This does 2 awesome things
- Your body will be hungry for fuel – far less likely to store the extra as body fat
- You’ll have burned more calories in your day from your workout, meaning the extra calories you take in at night won’t be nearly as harmful, if at all!
Typically we find these 1-2 days on the weekend look quite the opposite – more eating and less moving!
Make this one change and you’ll see weight maintenance as a breeze J
