With Spring and Summer approaching fast, the LAST thing you want to do is wait till the last minute to get in shape for the warm weather! Here are my 5 Top Fat Loss Tips to help you Get Ready For Summer NOW
1. Eliminate Junk Food (Most Of The Time)
You may think this is a no-brainer, but you’ll be surprised at how those few chips, sodas and cookies on a regular basis add up (we just saw a cookie package, and each cookie, about two bites, packed 125 calories! Eat 8 and that’s about half your daily calorie intake, 1,000 calories).
Notice that we said to eliminate junk “most of the time.” That’s because allowing it once or twice a week will prevent over-the-top binges. And besides, a loose-eating day, with a higher-calorie jolt, prevents your metabolism from slowing down, so it’s a good thing.
2. Tone Down Alcohol Consumption:
A few beers or libations every so often won’t hurt, but if you do it regularly, you turn off fat burning. The reason is that your body burns off alcohol first, it becomes your primary energy substrate.
So as you’re burning off the alcohol, what happens to the food you eat? It’s merely surplus calories going directly to fat cells. Not good. That means when you do choose to drink, don’t eat a lot while you indulge.Here is what diet guru Robert C Atkins says regarding alcohols affect on fat storage:
“Here’s the problem with all alcoholic beverages, and the reason I recommend refraining from alcohol consumption on the diet. Alcohol, whenever taken in, is the first fuel to burn. While that’s going on, your body will not burn fat. This does not stop the weight loss, it simply postpones it, since the alcohol does not store as glycogen, and you immediately go back into ketosis/lipolysis after the alcohol is used up.
If you must drink alcohol, wine is an acceptable addition to levels beyond the Induction diet. If wine does not suit your taste, straight liquor such as scotch, rye, vodka, and gin would be appropriate, as long as the mixer is sugarless; this means no juice, tonic water; or non-diet soda. Seltzer and diet soda are appropriate.”
3. Slow Down The Negative Part Of Your Reps:
On at least one set of your big compound exercises, use a 1 1/2-seconds-up, 4-to-6-seconds-down tempo. In other words, slow down the negative on every rep.
For example, on bench presses, fire it up, then lower it slowly on every rep. Emphasizing the negative creates more muscle trauma, and that’s a good thing for fat burning.
That’s because it takes energy to repair muscle damage. Your metabolism kicks into gear for the entire recovery process, usually about two days or more after your workout. So you’re burning fat 24/7, yes, even while you sleep!
4. Workout 1st Thing In The Morning On An Empty Stomach
Studies show that you will burn A LOT more fat when you workout during a fasted state, but I don’t suggest starving yourself to get into that fasted state. Thats whay its best to do your workout as soon as you wake up! Plus you get it out of the way before your day gets started!
I wake up at 5 or 6 am six days a week and workout befor I do anything else! This is great for everyone that “claims” to not have enuff time to work out
5. Do A Short Cardio Session After Each Weight Workout:
You burn off all the sugar in your bloodstream with 30 minutes to an hour of weight training. That means any activity right after immediately taps into body fat. I STRONGLY suggest you do H.I.I.T. cardio because its by far the most effective for burning fat!
In other words, right after your weight training is prime fat-burning time. All it takes is 15 minutes of HIIT Cardio make a serious dent in your fat stores. It’s the most efficient fat-burning cardio you can do.
