I think that the coolest part of my job is helping moms and dads lose fat. That may come as no shock, given my profession, but I love watching the light bulbs go off over their heads when something finally clicks, or at the realization that they’ve lost 10 pounds of fat without even realizing it.

But moms and dads constantly tell me they want to know how to lose fat, but they’re just too darn busy to fit in a workout.how to lose fat if you're too busy to workout

I get that…really I do. You’ve been hammered with workouts that take up so much of what little free time you have, that it’s easy to understand how you might think you’re too busy to get in a good fat loss workout.

So how do you lose fat if you think you’re too busy to workout?

I’m glad you asked!

First off, you’re not too busy to fit in a 10-minute workout. I don’t care who you are; everybody can find 10 minutes…

…even the President can find time to workout and he’s got few more things on his to-do list.

But in order to make a 10-minute workout help you lose weight, you need to do it properly. You need to focus on full body workouts and full body exercises. No biceps curls, triceps kickbacks, leg extensions, crunches or any other "isolation" exercise…only the big movements like push-ups, squats, lunges, planks, rows and presses.

You’ve got to make your 10 minutes count if you want to lose fat.

The second thing you need to do is plan ahead. If you’re busy, then you already understand the importance of planning ahead. When it comes to how to lose fat, it’s no different.

You need to plan out your days so you know where your weak points are and when you’ll be hungry and where you can fit in your 10 minute workout.

If you’re always hungry mid-morning, but you find yourself in meetings or running around town doing errands, plan to have a fat burning snack that’s easy to take with you.too busy to workout, 10 minute exercise, lose fat

Something like almonds, cashews, peanuts, apples, broccoli, raisins, etc. All those foods travel well and are loaded with nutrition that will help you lose more fat.

The last thing you need to focus on when you want to know how to lose fat if you’re too busy to workout is to get rid of your gym membership and start doing your workouts from home.

If you’re a busy mom or dad, and you’re already wondering how to fit in a good fat loss workout, why on earth would you waste money on a gym membership?

You can get in an awesome fat loss workout in less time than it takes for you to drive to the gym, change clothes, drop your kid off at the child care center, and warm-up!

I believe that having a gym membership is about the biggest waste of money a busy parent can have.

They’re not necessary and you don’t need to spend a ton of money on a home gym either. You can get a great fat loss workout done with some dumbbells, a stability ball and your own bodyweight.

You could probably spend under $100 to outfit your entire home gym, which is less than a lot of commercial gyms charge per month!

And you don’t have to worry about driving to and from the gym, waiting for equipment, worrying about the sweat pools sitting on the equipment, all the mirrors and weirdoes lurking around.

You could even do the fat loss workout in your underwear! Unless of course your kids make fun of you, which will probably happen.

If I workout without a shirt on, my daughter is constantly trying to tickle me, which makes for an interesting situation when I’m trying to do a difficult push-up variation.

She loves it, though and I’m setting a good example and that’s all that matters, right.

So to recap…

…If you want to know how to lose fat, if you’re too busy to workout, stick to 10-minute workouts, plan ahead and get rid of the gym membership.

Stick to those 3 things and you’ll never again have to wonder how to lose fat.
