10 Great tips on how to burn fat faster and lose weight
Many people wonder how to lose weight fast. Well, losing weight isn’t easy for everyone and, sometimes, you can try all the ‘celebrity’ diets out there and still not be able to shed those unwanted pounds. But did you know that you can lose weight without having to eat less? Whatever diet or exercise regime you chose, at the end of the day, losing weight comes down to just one thing – you need to burn more calories than you are taking in.
When your body is consuming more calories, than you are taking in, it starts to use the accumulated fat for the energy that you need, and so you start to lose weight. Therefore, even a modest decrease in calories and an increase in exercise can work; however, there are other ways in which you can help your body consume fat too, let’s look at some of them now:
Studies have shown that people who don’t get enough sleep find it harder to lose weight. Sounds too good to be true, but researchers have found that lack of sleep at night means that you start your day with less energy and therefore, do less during the day and so use fewer calories.
Eating organically produced food can help you lose weight. Scientists confirm that the pesticides found in many non-organic foods are stored in the fat cells in our bodies and that these toxins actually make it harder to burn off the fat.
What is the best and the healthiest way to lose weight? Keep moving!
During long periods of inactivity, even just sitting down at a desk at work, your body begins to shut down certain processes, so whether you stand or sit at work can make a big difference to your waistline. Just standing up for a while, perhaps while talking on the phone, can help you to lose weight.
If you maintain the same diet but increase the amount of exercising – you will lose weight. It’s that simple! Even a 20 minute walk can make a difference if done regularly. But I recommend to introduce challenges gradually. Don’t stress your body with excessive exercising and radical changes straight away. Small steps at a time will make a big difference in the long run.
When you are cold, your body uses more energy in the effort it takes to just keep you warm. You don’t need to sit in a fridge to benefit from this; just drinking a glass of cold water will give you a mini workout.
Good news for lovers of spicy food, eating chillies and peppers naturally boosts your metabolic rate and makes you burn more calories in the process. Spicy dishes can temporarily speed up your metabolism by approximately twenty percent.
Fill up with fibre
Foods high in fiber help you feel full, but also give your fat burning capacity up to a boost too. Researches show that fiber rich diet can increase the rate at which your body consumes fat by up to thirty percent.
Have a cup of Tea
Drinking a caffeinated drink, such as tea or coffee stimulates the central nervous system and gives your metabolism a jolt. Scientist’s studies showed that just one cup of tea can increase your metabolism by twelve percent and help you burn some more calories. Just don’t overdo the sugar!
Don’t skip breakfast
They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and it’s not without good reason. People who regularly skip breakfast are over four times more likely to become obese, according to researches. Breakfast jump-starts the metabolism and it’s far better to get those calories that you need early in the day, rather than later in the evening.
Eat more Iron
It’s not just pumping iron that burns the calories, eating it helps too. Iron carries oxygen to your muscles and helps burn off the fat, so an iron rich diet will help you lose weight quicker.
Don’t starve yourself
If you don’t get enough protein and vitamins you won’t have enough energy to exercise, so dieting can become counterproductive. When dieting, ensure that you get enough protein to feed your muscles or they will start to burn off along with the fat.
