You’ll continue to burn fat after your jog – people who run for at least four hours a week melt more calories than non-runners, even when they’re not running.
Lifting Weights Slowly
More muscle equals mega metabolism boost. Strength training can help you trim major fat, and doing super-slow (versus normal speed) reps increases strength by 50 percent.Plus, using dumbbells activates more muscle fibers than using machines.
Alternative Cardio Speed
Speed up, slow down. Alternating bouts of high-intensity and low-intensity cardio has been shown to torch pounds.
Wearing a weighted vest (about 10 percent of your body weight) while walking can boost your calorie burn by 8 percent.
Not only does working out with kettlebells build muscle, but doing it for 20 minutes burns as many calories as running at a 6-minute-mile pace for the same amount of time.
As few as 80 minutes a week of aerobic or weight training helps keep you from regaining belly fat after losing weight.
Weights Before Cardio
Doing strength training before cardio can torch more fat than cardio alone.
Less Time Between Sets
Try resting for less between each set
Lift Heavier For Fewer
Make your workout more intense and burn more fat
Don’t Be A Couch Potato
Fit people have more fat-burning metabolites in their blood than couch potatoes do
Eating a protein-packed breakfast and lunch helps you burn more post-meal fat than if you eat lower-protein meals
Yes To Green Tea & Coffee
Downing five 5-ounce cups of green tea a day boosts metabolism. Two cups of coffee will also do the trick.
Eating two eggs for breakfast while dieting will help you trim more weight and body fat than if you ate the same amount of calories downing on a bagel
Cut Calories Gradually
If you diet, don’t trim more than 250 calories a day. Cutting calories too quickly slows your metabolism down
What To Munch On
Almonds, cherries, yogurt, grapefruit, whole grains, and spicy foods have all been shown to burn fat.
Eat Small Portions Throughout The Day
Those who go without eating for long periods are more likely to have higher body-fat percentages than people who eat more regularly.
Get C and D. Vitamin C can help you burn more fat, and D may help you lose fat. Aim for 400 to 500 mg of C and 800 mg of D a day.
Your body may not digest food and burn fat as efficiently if you down a huge meal right before bedtime, especially because your metabolism is slower while you sleep.
Getting a good nights sleep each evening will help you lose more fat.
