Burn That Fat

3 Keys to Burning FatYour metabolism is running day and night, but it doesn’t always go at the same speed. To truly get your metabolism running at full tilt, your body needs to warm up. Any time you move your body (use muscle) or consume spicy foods, you’re revving up your metabolism.

Here are 3 keys to burning fat:

Eat more. Whenever you eat, you’re starting a process called the thermic effect. That’s a technical way of saying that eating heats up your body. If you eat smaller meals more often, your body will burn more calories during the day. Research shows that people who eat five meals a day are more likely to lose weight than those eating three meals a day. Other studies show that an inconsistent meal pattern (say, eating three meals one day and six the next) will significantly slow your metabolism.

Move more. If you move your body, you raise your body temperature and burn more fat and calories – period. Sometimes all it takes is walking up a flight of stairs a few times a day. No amount of exercise is too small; it all adds up.

Laugh more. Laughing will help to warm your body. The warmer your body, the higher your metabolism. It’s a good argument for choosing a funny movie over watching the news.

My final fat burning tip.

Practice portion control!

I know; it’s easier said than done. But here is a simple guide that keeps control in the palm your hands.

Fruit serving      = the size of your fist

Cereal/grains     = your cupped hand

Veggies                = 1 ½ cupped hands

Protein                 = open palm

This is a quick way to make more reasonable choices on the fly. Weight loss is always more challenging when you overeat at meals.

    I was very lean from the time of my birth. But in the past two years due to hormonal imbalance I gained a lot of weight. Then all started advising me to eat less and to intake less oily foods. But I knew that this would really not help. the same thing has been mentioned here. Thanks for the tips on what to eat. Looking forward for more updates.

    I follow a diet where I eat more fruits and not many proteins. This is so because mine is a sedentary life style and I am worried that eating more proteins will make me fatter. But now after reading this blog, I am planning to follow the tips mentioned here.

    I am on the plumper side and do not really want to reduce my weight. But one of my friends wants to loose some weight. Are diets really helpful? I heard somebody telling me that diets reduces the immunity of the body hence making it weak. Is this true?

    I am a little plump and wanted to reduce weight from a long time but always ended up skipping the work out due to lack of time. Also I cannot keep myself away from food and keep on binging all unhealthy every two hours.But this article enlightened me and I have started contemplating on my wrong food habits.I will definitely follow your suggestions in my daily routine.I hope that eating with control and a brisk walk or a short run in addition should work out well in my case.
