5 Fat Burning Habits That You Should Begin Today
The best kind of fat loss is steady fat loss. And while a slow-and-steady approach to weight loss will ensure that you keep the weight off for good, I have a few tricks to help you burn fat as fast as possible.
So if you’re ready to speed up your fat loss (and are willing to do the work necessary!) keep reading…
Rapid Fat Loss Habit #1:
Bottoms Up! It’s not always easy to get to the water cooler or the sink. But if you’re going to shred pounds, you’re going to have to keep a tall glass/bottle of water nearby. There are many perks to drinking plenty of water. Doing this helps you feel fuller, which keeps you from overeating or thinking you’re hungry when you’re actually thirsty.
Drinking water instead of other drinks also keeps you from ingesting additional, unnecessary, and worthless calories. And finally, if your body is going to perform at its peak, it needs to be well hydrated. Drinking plenty of water helps all your bodily functions operate well, which prevents you from holding onto water weight as well as avoiding constipation. It also helps ensure you get what you need to push through the final stages of a difficult workout.
If you love your water ice cold, try a Hydro Flask. I just bought one of these and absolutely love it. This thing keeps beverages cold for hours, even sitting in an 108 degree hot yoga room for 90 minutes. It’s a bit on the expensive side, but worth every penny if you ask me. You can get it on Amazon here.
Rapid Fat Loss Habit #2: Be a Planner
Like flying by the seat of your pants? Then you’re going to struggle to shave off pounds in a fast (or even slow) manner. Burning fat fast requires you to be disciplined.
The beginning of discipline is a good plan. Know when you’re going to the gym, how many calories you’re going to eat and what foods the calories will come from, and how you are going to avoid giving in to that tempting piece of chocolate cake. Once you have your plan, you’ve got to do the hard part: stick with it.
Rapid Fat Loss Habit #3: Get Intense with Your Routine
One way to increase your chances of sticking with a fat loss program is to keep your workouts short and convenient.
Maintaining a steady pace on the treadmill will help you improve your overall health, but it isn’t the best tool for burning fat quickly. To speed up your fat-burning process, you’ll want to add some HIIT into your exercise regimen. During a HIIT (high-intensity interval training) workout, you mingle bursts of intense exercise with lighter exercise or short periods of rest. For one of the best HIIT workouts you can do from home, without equipment (and in 20 minutes or less a day) you should check this out.
Although you’ll be exhausted when it’s all said and done, you’ll be burning more fat than if you were to go on a one hour run.
Rapid Fat Loss Habit #4: Lift Weights
Think you can burn fat fast by doing nothing but aerobic exercises? You can. But you can do it faster and better by mixing in some weight-lifting sessions – this includes no equipment needed body weight only exercises. In fact, if you don’t add weight lifting into your regular routine, you may begin to lose muscle. The scale may go down, but if you’re dropping muscle mass, you’re setting yourself up for disaster.
When shooting to burn off fat, nothing helps more than extra muscle. Added muscle helps you feel better and perform tasks of daily living with greater ease, while improving your metabolism and ultimately helping you burn more of that unwanted fat!
Rapid Fat Loss Habit #5: Eat Right
You know that what you put in your mouth is either going to fuel you to get through the day or simply add some pudgy inches to your waistline. So choose wisely! Fresh fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats all give you the upper hand on burning fat.
But it’s not just the foods you eat. It’s how you eat them. Chew slowly, use a smaller plate, and leave the food dishes in the kitchen. When you’re finished with your plate of food, relax and give your brain time to figure out that your stomach is full. Then take the cue and stop eating. These small steps may seem significant, but they will boost your fat-burning potential exponentially.
