Fat Burning Tips
What is the best way to burn fat? The fat burning process can be very simple as long as the proper dieting and training techniques are applied. Keep in mind, everyone has a different body type. Techniques or methods that work for others may not work for you. This next segment will briefly describe some of the insider tips needed to begin the fat burning process.
There is an old saying that fat loss success is 80-percent nutrition. Frankly, I'm not sure what the percentage actually is (no one does). However, based on my experience it's clear to me that it all begins with nutrition. If you don't have your nutrition program "dialed in," you will not achieve success. It doesn't matter how hard or how long you workout. This applies to everyone who starts a diet and fitness program.
The first and best way to burn fat is to modify your current diet. There are three simple ways you can begin to modify: reduce calories, reduce sodium, and reduce fat. For example, by substituting a glass of water for a carbonated beverage, you can cut approximately 150 calories or more, depending on how much is consumed. Even if it were fruit juice instead of water, you would still reduce calories by approximately 50 – 100.
Your goal should be to control blood sugar. Controlling blood sugar levels helps to shed fat. This is accomplished by taking in some protein, carbohydrates and good fats spread evenly through the day every two to three hours and by not over eating.
Eating less fat is making us fat. We should be eating more fat. But remember, it should be the right kind of fat. Not the processed fats, but the essential ones.
