fat right? That’s probably a pretty stupid question considering you’re reading this
I’ll skip all the
formalities and get right to the point. Here are 5 fat loss tips that
anyone can integrate into their daily lives right now.
1) Kick the habit on liquid
calories. Liquid calories are useless calories. You don’t need to drink things like soda (pop, Coke, or whatever you call it),
calorie-rich coffees, and alcohol. All these drinks do is make you gain fat.
There is no arguing the statement. If you drink a lot of these, or even a little, you are severly limiting the amount of
fat you can lose.
Liquid calories are, without a
doubt, the worst calories you can possibly consume if you want to lose
fat. They just are.
The good thing is that by
giving them up, they are also the calories that come off the quickest.
I have had
clients lose over 10 pounds in a week just by getting rid of their daily soda intake. 10 pounds just by giving up soda! That’s unreal, but true.
I’ve heard stories about
people losing more because they drink so much.
Part of the reason is because that’s so many calories consumed
with no nutritional value, and another reason is that many people retain water when they consume lots of
liquid calories. To be honest, I don’t know why this is,
but it’s true. I, in fact, am one of those
people. If I have a couple sodas, I will retain
water and I can tell the next day. It’s not good.
2) Add more
fiber. Fiber is king when it comes to fat loss. Most foods that are high in fiber are also low in calories, plus they act as a
“bulker” in your stomach which makes you feel full/satisfied faster, which means you won’t eat as
much. If you don’t eat as much, you’ll lose
weight. Simple as that.
3) Stay out of the health club and do your
workouts at home. This may seem odd, but it’s true for many people. Some people don’t get very good workouts in at health clubs because they have to wait
too long for equipment, or because their programs are just horrible.
There are also those people
that pay for health club memberships and don’t use them. That’s why I tell people to save their money and buy some dumbbells, resistance tubing
and medicine balls and create a mini-gym in their home.
It’s cheap and you’ll get a
much better fat burning workout in
because you won’t waste any time and you don’t have as many excuses keeping you from your workouts like commute
4) Steer clear of white flour and
sugar. This should go without saying, but
unfortunately I have to keep pounding this home. White flour and sugar will do nothing but make you fat. It has no nutritional value and will wreak havoc on your blood sugar levels and just
make you fat.
To make that easier, stay away from most things that come in a bag
or box and white breads. Most foods found in bags or boxes are
highly processed carbohydrates that lack any nutritional value. I know they’re tasty, but once you get away from them for a while, you’ll come to
realize that they don’t taste that good.
5) Do lots of full body exercises like
push-ups and squats. These movements use a lot of muscle which means they burn lots of
fat. Plus they help to strengthen your core,
which is weak on pretty much every person alive today due to our sedentary society. So not only will you lose lots of
fat by doing this type of exercise, but
you’ll lessen your back pain and feel better because of them.

to do push-ups and planks
