The 6-Step Approach To Burning Fat and Losing Unwanted Weight
By Kevin DiDonato MS, CSCS, CES
I am going to put this out there: Your body CAN be a fat burning machine.
But unfortunately, your body (and a lot of others) are not.
Well, for right now, that is!
You see, decisions you made throughout your life may have causes you to start gaining weight.
And dieting MAY not be the answer you are looking for.
Changing unhealthy behaviors, watching what you eat and recording what you eat, are some possible ways for helping you to lose weight.
But are there others?
Of course there are!
Are you confused about everything you read?
But, once again, JaylabPro is here to save the day!
Here are six tips you can implement RIGHT NOW which might help you lose weight and keep your metabolism rolling!
Top Six Tips For Weight Loss:
1. Increase Your Protein Intake
Protein is essential if you want to lose weight.
It provides the building blocks your body needs to pack on lean muscle mass, and it may also act as an appetite suppressant.
In fact, increasing your protein intake may make you feel fuller for longer, possibly helping control your appetite.
Also, and I bet you didn't know this, protein may help your body BURN calories just by eating it.
But not just protein, ALL food has this effect!
Your body burns calories by BREAKING down food, which could lead to an increase in your calories burned.
How can you incorporate more protein?
There are plenty of high-quality food sources that provide ample amounts of protein, and other essential vitamins and minerals your body needs to function at it's best.
Sources such as lean meats, fish, poultry, whey protein, and nuts are great sources of protein.
2. Increase Essential Fat Intake
Essential fats are not the same as your everyday fats.
These are fats cannot be produced by your body, but they are ESSENTIAL for your body to function at optimal levels.
Fats like DHA, EPA and CLA are important fats your body needs.
In order to get more essential fats, you should incorporate fatty fish like salmon, shellfish, and tuna, and nuts like walnuts, flaxseed, and almonds.
This could increase your DHA and EPA levels in your blood.
Plus, there are certain vegetables that are loaded with CLA, which your body may be able to break down into DHA and EPA.
Not a big fish fan? Try a high quality Krill oil supplement to satisfy your essential fatty acid needs.
3. Drink Plenty of Water
Not only does water hydrate you, but it may also be beneficial for weight loss.
Water fills you up, making you less likely to be hungry later.
Plus, your body may be better able to burn fat if it's properly hydrated.
Dehydration makes your body work harder at burning fat.
Be sure to drink six to eight glasses per day to help burn fat and keep you hydrated all day long.
4. Stay Away From High Glycemic Foods
Carbohydrates are truly NOT the enemy to your weight loss.
In fact, a sound nutrition plan is one that includes carbohydrates (they help you burn FAT).
But be careful, high glycemic foods may raise blood sugar, creating an insulin spike.
Higher glycemic foods often lead to weight gain--due to excessive spikes in blood sugar.
You see, once ingested, higher glycemic foods spikes insulin, which could result in all that sugar being stored as fat.
Turn to lower glycemic foods like vegetables, fiber-rich whole wheat products, and oatmeal.
Lower glycemic foods take longer to process, thanks to the high fiber content.
Result: a much slower release of sugar into your bloodstream.
5. Get Rid Of The Scale
Losing fat is different than losing weight.
In the initial stages of weight loss, you may lose a lot of water and muscle mass and less fat than you might think.
So, get rid of the scale.
Pay less attention to WEIGHT LOSS, and focus more on losing your BODY FAT STORES.
Have a qualified professional test your body fat. This will give you a starting point for how much body fat you have and how much you need to lose.
Then focus on burning 500 extra calories each day in order to lose 1 pound of fat per week.
This may use fat stores as an energy source, resulting in a leaner, fitter you.
Exercising is a great way to burn extra calories and keep you sane.
Varying your workout routine and the intensity (of the exercise) may lead to more calories burned and give a much needed boost to your metabolism.
Incorporating strength training and cardiovascular exercise (running, swimming, cycling, etc.) may help burn extra calories, and strengthen and tone your body.
Be careful though, exercising may INCREASE your appetite.
Also, try to eat a mix of carbohydrates and protein, two to three hours before your workout to give your body plenty of energy for your workout.
Then after you workout, be sure to replace lost nutrients IMMEDIATELY to boost healing and stimulate muscle recovery and growth.
YOU Can Lose Weight...
You and everyone else want to lose weight and keep it off.
And I know your Body CAN Be a Fat Burning Machine.
By implementing proper eating habits, ensuring you're properly hydrated, increase protein at every meal, and eat lower glycemic foods, you could keep your body primed for fat burning.
