6 Tips for Losing Body Fat

Packing fat on your body is definitely unpleasant and even if you’re not obese, you most probably want to have a lean and muscular body.

Don’t be discouraged if you haven’t achieved this yet as no one loses body fat in a day. But if you have the right focus and determination, you will lose more pounds than you might have thought yourself capable of, soon enough.

Here are 6 effective tips for achieving your goal of losing fat:

body mass

#1. Watch your diet

It would be a misconception to think that all you need to lose fat is to work-out every day and leave it at that. You’ll be setting yourself  through a frustrating cycle if you keep eating the same junk that made you fat in the first place.

The better foods to eat will be lean protein, nuts, fruits and vegetables, in place of high carb foods like donuts, white rice, white bread, etc.

#2. Eat more fiber

This macro nutrient aids the digestive system. This allows food digest faster and not accumulate into fat.

Fiber can be found in many food substances, such as fruits, but the Professionals go as far as recommending juices and fiber supplements. Fiber also has the benefit of making you feel full faster so you don’t always feel the urge to snack on junk.

#3. Eat frequently, but not excessively

Eating regularly in smaller bits is better than eating large chunks at once. This is because the body has increased metabolism due to the body recognizing energy input on a regular basis.

Another benefit of eating this way is the regulation of processes in the body such as the moderation of insulin levels. When you eat smaller meals, insulin doesn’t get signals to be released because your blood sugar rate is kept constant.

However, central to this is that you shouldn’t over do this ‘frequent eating’. Don’t eat twenty times a day. This will have a knock on effect and possibly make you sick.

#4. Focus on your Performance

Instead of obsessing over the minor details of how much weight you’ve lsot after each workout session, keep your focus on the quality of your performance and trust that everything else will fall into place.

You need to challenge yourself to perform better daily. Your goals should be such as these, how many more miles can I run? How about an extra 5kg on my dumbbell today? Etc. Anything that will help you challenge your current performance so you can improve will be a better focus for you.

#5. Focus on quality, not quantity

It is rather easy to get carried away doing 2000 crunches daily and thinking you’re on top of the world. Losing fat doesn’t depend on the number of crunches you do or miles you run, well at least not entirely, it relies mrun on say, the treadmill.

Do some hard interval exercises, an advisable interval exercise pattern is the tabata protocol. The tabata Protocol is basically 20 seconds of maximum high intense workout with only a 10 second interval for break completed eight times. It has been shown to increase fitness dramatically.

Frequency over duration; as mentioned already, quality over quantity. It makes a lot more sense to break up workout sessions into smaller more manageable periods, particularly for busier people.

#6. Have a plan

It’s probably useless to know all these tips if you don’t follow them and devise a plan to achieve your goal using them. You need to keep focused. You can’t follow a plan for a short period of time and go back to your old ways.

The fact is that, it is easier to put on weight than to lose it. Follow you workout plan and you’ll be in the shape you desire sooner than you think.
