Weight Loss Diet Tips! What is the Best Way to Burn Fat?

 

Weight Loss Diet Tips
by Justin Leonard

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.

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. 

Excess sodium and sodium seasonings combined with fat can cause water retention. For males, it is most noticeable in the abdominal area. The thighs, hips, and buttocks are affected on females. But what causes these unwanted gains in weight and bodyfat? There are three possible reasons this can happen: (1) Eat late at night (2) Exceed your normal caloric intake (3) Lack of exercise or physical activity. 

Bottom line: If you break one of these rules, you will store body fat. The body's metabolism basically goes into shutdown mode when you become inactive. This inactivity causes calories to build up and ultimately produce excess and unwanted bodyfat. When calories exceed normal levels, the "unused" surplus becomes bodyfat. Lack of exercise limits metabolism speed. The metabolism must reach a certain speed in order to burn fat. 

What is the best way to speed up the metabolism? The best way to speed up your metabolism is through cardiovascular (using the heart) exercise. Weight training is perfectly fine, but isn't needed to burn fat. It is best to do cardio on an empty stomach. Here's why:

Overnight during sleep, calories (mostly complex carbohydrates) are burned slowly. By morning, blood sugar and carb levels low. This empty stomach training forces the body to look for an alternate energy source. If carbs and blood sugar levels are low, the body moves to its alternate source of energy which is fat. 

The second best way to speed up the metabolism is by increasing meal frequency. Instead of eating 2 - 3 meals per day, try eating 4 - 5 small meals per day, or 3 meals and 2 healthy snack meals. Food substitutions can help tremendously when trying to reduce calories and speed up the metabolism.

Below is a list of sample ideas for substituting. The following examples can cut daily caloric intake in half in some cases. The whole idea behind food substitutions is to enjoy what you like to eat, only in a healthier (fat burning) way.

More weight loss diet tips:

Tip 1: Drink Herbal Tea

When urges for sweets and snacks arrive, try drinking herbal teas such as apple-cinnamon, almond, or orange. The preparation of tea alone actually helps to take your mind off of junk food. The heat from the tea fills you up, and the aroma helps to satisfy your cravings.

Tip 2: Limit High Carbohydrate Foods

To maximize the fat-burning process, it's best to gradually eliminate carbohydrates toward the end of the day. This minimizes your chances of storing fat late at night.

Tip 3: Don't Drink Alcohol

Alcohol contains too many empty calories which ultimately produce nothing but fat.

Tip 4: Motivate Yourself

Try to find an incentive for getting in shape and burning fat. Write down your goal and put it in a location you see everyday, such as your refrigerator. Motivation really keeps you going!

Tip 5: Use Low-Calorie Food Alternatives

Try to save as many calories as you can. Substitute water for soda, baked chicken for fried chicken, sub sandwiches for pizza, etc.

Tip 6: Don't Starve Yourself

Starving only promotes a bigger "rebound" effect because your body likes to hold on from what it is deprived of. Instead, fuel the body every 2 to 3 hours with small meals.

Tip 7: Drink 1 or More Glasses of Water Before Meals

This is to help fill the stomach and give you a full feeling. It works!

Tip 8: Be Consistent

No weight loss tips will work if you don't give them a chance. It may take a while to see results. Hang in there! Consistency is the key to effectiveness.

Tip 9: Don't Use the Scale

Scales can be misleading. For example, if you're losing bodyfat and bodyweight but gaining muscle, the scale won't necessarily reflect the difference between the two. Instead, monitor the inches you lose. Inches never lie!


A review of the one of the most popular and fastest-selling fat loss e-books in internet history: 

The Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle program was ranked by Tony Clickbank as the #1 Fitness eBook and it has sold in over 69 countries making it one of the most popular and fastest-selling fat loss e-books in internet history!  

So why is it so popular?  It's because it's a system based on the secret techniques of the world's best bodybuilders and fitness models. 

All the fat destroying methods previously known by only a small handful of the top fitness models and bodybuilders are revealed to the public for the very first time by Competitive Bodybuilder and Personal Trainer Tony Venuto (top left).  If you want to try something new and unique, visit Tony's Burn the Fat website.

Why do people experience incredible weight loss on a juice fast?

Before that question can be answered, we have to understand what ‘juice fasting’ is about.

Juice fasting is about abstaining from solid food, for a period of time, while supplying your body with the most nutritious drinks on this planet. By providing essential vitamins and minerals, the juice can actually jump-start the body’s fat-burning mechanisms. One glass of freshly-made fruit or vegetable juice provides you with the equivalent vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and chlorophyll you would get by eating several pounds of raw fruits and vegetables.

Most of us have heard how thousands are losing up to 10 pounds in 2 days on the best-selling Hollywood 48-Hour Miracle Diet in which you simply juice fast on bottled (dead) juice for 2 days. Well, juice fasting is a healthier version of the Hollywood Diet because you can fast longer than 2 days while supplying your body with live enzymes and nutrient-rich fresh fruit and vegetable juices.

Dr. Shelton, a great advocate of fasting, wrote "The weight lost by overweight patients in the early days of a fast is astounding. I have seen losses of five and six pounds a day for the first few days. A woman who fasted in the Health School in January and February of 1950 lost twenty-five pounds in the first two weeks.
