7 Common Sense Ways to Burn Fat Fast

Aug 13, 2008
There are many ways to burn fat fast, and it's often the little things that add up to make a big difference. Once you get these little things mastered you'll find that burning fat and losing weight comes a whole lot easier than you'd ever imagine.

I want to get something clear, by the end of this article you're not going to be a fat burning machine. You won't instantly, magically lose weight. But hopefully you'll pick up a few little tips that you can incorporate into your life, to help you get on the fast track to a healthier, fitter body.

1 - Don't let your tea and coffee ruin your body! On their own tea and coffee are more or less harmless (except for a few nasties in coffee) and won't make you put on weight. But, it's the nasties that you add that make the difference; it's the full fat milk, the cream or the sugar that pile on the calories. And these are hidden calories, because you barely notice you're consuming them. A cup of coffee with cream and two sugars can quickly add a few hundred extra calories to your diet.

2 - You'll hate me for saying this, but you really do need to count the calories as you eat them. If you are really serious about losing weight, you must track everything you put in your mouth. Remember your body is a machine, you must feed it the right fuel, and the right amount of fuel. Get a list of the calorie content of common foods, read the labels and speak to a nutritionist if necessary.

3 - Overindulged? If you've eaten too much, or had a bad binge day, you've got to make up for it, and I don't mean by starving yourself the next day. You've got to work off the calories by doing exercise, and extra exercise if you've overeaten.

4 - Beware of fried foods! If it's fried, it's going to be fatty. If you're on weight loss, fat burning mission, then fried foods are your #1 enemy. You must duck, dive and evade all things fried. The oil or fat the food is fried in, is stuffed with more calories than you'd imagine, even when excess oil is drained away, the residual oil calorie content is astronomical. Run away, far away, from any fried foods.

5 - Skip meals at your peril! This is one of the critical mistakes many people who try to lose weight make. You need at least 3 regular meals a day, if your are training seriously, top athletes will split this into 6 small meals throughout the day. This keeps hunger at bay longer and keeps your metabolism charging at full throttle. Skipping meals causes your metabolism to slow, you burn less fat, and food that you do eat is stored as fat, as your body goes into survival mode in case it's not fed again for another day. You MUST eat consistently and regularly.

6 - Eat all the fresh vegetables you can get your hands on. If you've got a choice and the cash, always go for fresh vegetables over canned or cooked, raw and fresh are better. When you cook them up, you lose lots of the vitamins and goodness in the process. If you're boiling them, save the water and use as gravy or stock to make the most of the goodness that's in the water. Canned vegetables are processed which means they too lose a lot of their goodness. If you can't get fresh, get frozen; the freezing process locks in the nutrients providing they've been frozen quickly after harvesting.

So right there are 6 common sense tips to help you burn fat faster. Burning fat and losing weight doesn't need to be difficult, you just need to be consistent with everything you do - eat the right foods and exercise regularly. And if you need help, don't be afraid to seek the advice of the experts, to get a healthy eating plan or a exercise program tailored to your body.
