For an average human who have less idea about diet, exercising regularly and minimizing rate of intake of junks, (which apparently blows up body fat) burning of excess fat can be a lot challenging. Nowadays, the desire to burn fat is found paramount among women, one of the important reasons being ‘a quest to keep a summer body’. As a matter of fact, when the issue of shedding weight comes up, most would think it applies to only a woman. I mean, only a few lads care enough to keep their body in check. However, the need to shed excess fat from the body is not only limited to keeping a slimmish body in shape, it also means improving the overall health of an individual. Paige Waehner in one of her recently published articles said, “your body tends to hoard calories as fat to keep your alive and safe. The challenge is learning how to get rid of that extra fat”. Hence, here are some amazing approaches to burning exorbitant fat that you’ll find helpful.
° PRACTICING A HEALTHY DIET
Of course it all begins with what we consume, since that seem to be the most apparent root of adding up fats. While eating, you not only think about your satisfaction, you would also like to put into consideration the nutrients contained in what you’re feeding on. The likely questions that should wander in your mind are: Am I consuming the right amount of each of the classes of food (which implies balanced diet)? Would I be getting the adequate nourishment from this food? With these in mind, you start to be conscious of your diet. Research has shown that by eating the proper amount of protein, fats and carbohydrates, (macro nutrients) you are eating the right amount of calories for your body. Familiarizing yourself with the way your body uses calories for fuel can help achieve your weight loss program. Eat less than you burn and that’s ultimately it.
Practicing a healthy diet basically is all about what you should eat, what you should not, what you need to feed less on, and what should be found most in your diet. Medically, it is advisable to eat more protein and healthy fats while trying to burn fat. Protein and dietary fat are fat-burning houses. Eating the right amount of both of these things can help you shed excess fat quickly. Studies have shown that they both reduce appetite, boost metabolism, preserve muscle mass, and decrease the risk of belly fat and weight gain (Ms Skinny, 2019). Feeding on refined carbohydrates regularly can be risky. Refined carbohydrates are mainly processed food such as pasta, cereal etc. It has been proven that a higher intake of refined carbohydrates can put you at a risk of increased belly fat and waist size. When considering the choice of beverages, water, green tea, fruit infused water and black coffee are best advised. Increase in iron intake and fruit consumption (vitamins/minerals) is also advised. By practicing a very healthy diet religiously, you’ll find out that you are not only burning excess fat and putting your body in shape, but you are also on the high advantage of better health with less risk of disease.
° ADOPT A PRODUCTIVE AND LESS-STRENUOUS EXERCISE
Aerobicexercise being one of the most common forms of exercise, has been medically advised. Although vigorous, it has proven to be very potent as it specifically trains the heart and lungs. Addition of aerobic exercise to your routine together with healthy diet is one of the most effective ways to enhance shedding of fat. What happens to body fat when you exercise is that your muscles first burn them through stored glycogen for energy. Dr Burguera, an endocrinologist said, “after about 30-60 minutes of aerobic exercise, your body starts burning fat. Exercise is key to weight loss and to maintain weight loss”. Literally, exercise as simple as taking a walk, running, jogging, cycling, and even swimming can help burn fat and kick-start weight loss. Other than aerobic exercise, there are other workouts that can be practiced, one of which is strength training. Strength training is a type of exercise that requires you to contract your muscles against resistance. Research has found strength training to have multiple health benefits, especially when it comes to burning fat (Link R., 2018). Strength training involves lifting weights to gain muscle over time, and it is most commonly practiced among men. Doing body weight exercises, lifting weights or using gym equipments are a few easy ways to get started with strength training (Link R., 2018).
Increasing the pace during aerobic exercise also plays a vital role in achieving a more rapid result. As with running, swimming, and other forms of aerobic exercise, pace makes a difference. A person burns more calories walking at a brisk pace compared to walking slowly (Fletcher J., 2019). However, this doesn’t necessarily mean you have to run. Walking quickly will burn extra calories to help with burning fat. Walking uphill regularly has also shown significant and amazing result. It practically helps increase the rate of calories burnt. You can try adding in resistance training during a walk, this ultimately helps burn more calories and increase the growth of new muscles. Some exercises to try include squats, push-ups, lunges and so on. Doing this can also help make the walking routine more interesting.
Burning fat might seem like a herculean task especially when you have tried so many methods and realize they are all futile. However, any method you decide to stick with, make sure you do so religiously. Make it a habit and be tenacious about it. Also, understanding your body system and making a lot changes to suit your comfortability is very crucial. If you think you’re not the one for cardiovascular exercise, probably they seem vigorous and stressful to you, then practicing and maintaining a healthy diet might just be the one that works perfectly for your kind of person. Albeit, making the two go hand in hand would prove amazingly effectual in less time than imagined, I would still advise that you don’t go out of your comfort zone to make it work as this can lead to lethargy if found inconvenient. Whichever method you find suiting, make sure you deem it interesting to make it continual and yield effective result.
