5 Great and Simple Ways to Help You Burn Fat

Posted Aug 25 2008 3:19pm

Here are 5 great yet simple ways to help you burn fat:

  1. Do not eat poor quality carbohydrates before bed. Poor quality carbohydrates are those that contain sugar or are highly processed. These would include most breakfast cereals, breads, snack foods, candies, and even fruits and juices. Eating these foods immediately before bedtime will likely result in increased deposit of fat and will prevent your body from maintaining a successful fat-burning mode.
  2. Increase your muscle mass. The more lean muscle you have, the more calories your body will burn even at rest. Muscle is extremely active metabolically. Do some resistance training, add some muscle, and crank up your metabolism.
  3. Eat only as much as you need. Eating is all about moderation. Time your meals so that you eat before you are actually starving. This one simple step practically guarantees that you will eat less throughout the day. When you do eat, stop when your satisfied, even if that means not finishing everything on your plate.
  4. Double up on your cardio training. From time to time it may be beneficial to the fat-burning process for you to split your cardio training into two short sessions rather than one longer one. Studies suggest that people who do 30 minutes of morning cardio and then 30 minutes of evening cardio lose more fat than those doing just one 60 minute session.
  5. Eat more high fiber foods. Most of us do not get enough fiber in our daily diets. Fiber not only promotes overall general health, but also can significantly aid in your fat-burning efforts. Leafy greens and salads are ideal sources of fiber.
