In our previous post, we talked about why our body needs fat, and we concluded that it takes fat to burn fat. In this post, we will take it a step further and provide you with some tips to burn fat and heighten your body’s ability to burn it in less time.
Follow a diet that is high in protein. If you want to make the most of your meals, it’s best to incorporate foods like chicken, fish and eggs into your diet every single day. The good thing about these foods is that they are filling and not packed with calories. It’s a win-win. As an added bonus, eating more high-quality protein has been linked with a lower risk of fat surrounding the abdomen.
Sleep your way to weight loss. Like most things in life, sleep is essential for performance and this is no different when it comes to how your body performs its weight loss functions. Although you may be sound asleep, your body is busy working and burning fat. When you have less than the suggested seven to eight hours of sleep per night, you are at a higher risk of obesity due to the fact that this lack of sleep may contribute to variations in your hunger hormones. It also helps to get your body on a sleep schedule, so go to bed and wake up at the same time every day. To ensure that you get the best sleep, make sure that all electronic devices are turned off, and if you can…keep you cell phone out of the room.
Toss the wrong drinks and reach for the right ones. When it comes to burning fat, our minds naturally think of food being the #1 thing that we can alter, but drinks play just as big a role in breaking down the fat-burning barriers. Sugar-sweetened drinks like soda and juice do nothing for your fat-loss goals, as they have no nutritional value, so it’s best to replace them with water. The same goes for alcohol, however; when you imbibe you also lower your inhibitions, making you much more likely to throw out your diet rules and overeat. Green tea, on the other hand, is a great option because it’s rich in antioxidants, which increase fat burning while also enhancing your metabolism.
Dr. Restivo’s weight loss program gives you the option to add a wide variety of liquid stevia drops that will spice up the flavor of your water and tea.
