Tips to Reduce Body Fat

Workout on a Empty Stomach ​

This is a good reason why you should exercise in the morning before you've had breakfast. Cardio on a empty stomach can boost your metabolism. Since you do not have food as a source of energy your body is forced to burn stored fat as fuel. Certain types of workouts are also more effective at burning fat. HIIT workouts will activate your metabolism and increase the "after burn" effect. Meaning you will continue to burn calories even after you are done working out.

Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting can put you on the fast track to fat loss, especially if you are also following a Ketogenic diet. ​Many experts also believe that intermittent fasting can enhance fitness performance, longevity and promote overall better health. It is also a lot healthier and safer than diets with calorie restrictions. 

More Protein and Less Carbs​

Dietary goals should be to increase your protein consumption and decrease your carb consumption. This is also one of the characteristics of a Keto diet. ​Protein is more difficult to digest so your body will burn more calories in the digestion process and you will feel full, longer. Carbs are often sources of extra sugar and can cause blood sugar levels to spike and crash. It's also important to know the difference between good and bad carbs

Avoid Sugar​

Sugar have many health risks associated with it and it's no secret that it is addictive and can cause weight gain. ​Sugar has a volatile effect on the body and is best avoided. Sugar may come from places that you would not expect which is why it is important to always read the nutritional labels. Remove soda and fruit juices from your diet. Cut sugar from your diet as much as possible. Learn how to start a sugar free diet and you will no longer fall victim to sugar cravings. 

Resistance Training​

Add resistance or strength training to your workout routine. Strength training not only gets rid of fat but it builds lean muscle in it's place. It's also a great way to target specific areas on your body. It can also help reduce belly fat and help you get skinny, toned thighs and legs. ​You don't need a gym for strength training. There are many bodyweight resistance training programs that you can do at home or on the go.
