Theres a lot of conflicting advice out there for people whose primary goal is to burn fat.
Separating the gimmicks from the truth isnt always easy, even with scientific evidence explaining the mechanisms behind the clams. If youre truly looking to burn fat, its best to ignore the hype and get back to the basics with a few tried and true techniques.
1.BOOST YOUR METABOLISM
Reaching your goals as quickly as possible is achievable if you boost your metabolism and make it as efficient as possible. I take Trim-V with my breakfast every morning because it works to boostthe metabolism all day long.
It also contains nootropics which stimulate the neurotransmitters in your brain to help curb your cravings! I know when I’m dieting I crave sweets and carbs all day long, but Trim-V helps to keep those cravings at bay so I can focus on eating nutritious, balanced meals.
2. AIM FOR INTENSITY
Spending an hour every day loping along on the treadmill with your heart rate in an intermediate zone wont do much of anything to help you lose fat. You need to perform at least 30 minutes of intense cardiovascular exercise for your body to shift from carbohydrates to fat as its primary fuel.
Choose aerobic workouts that challenge you to push your limits, and put your all into every moment. Follow my workout instagram @VannaBeltWorkouts for ideas!
3. INCLUDE STRENGTHTRAINING
Youve probably heard that your metabolism slows down as you age. This is due in part to a loss of muscle mass. Adding at least two to three days of strength training to your regimen prevents this loss and may actually increase your resting metabolism.
Lift the heaviest weights that you can without sacrificing form, and try superset or circuit workouts to keep your heart rate up as you move between sets.
As you can see, I wear my V-Belt during weight training to accelerate results in the stomach area to achieve long-lasting tightness!
4. USE YOUR ENTIRE BODY
Whether youre doing cardio or lifting weights, make sure that youre engaging all of your muscles. Keep your upper body tensed during leg exercises, and contract your legs and core while working your arms.
Focus on compound movements that target as many parts of the body as possible to create a more efficient workout.
5. STAY ACTIVE ALL DAY
Following your morning sweatfest with a long stretch of sitting wreaks havoc on your metabolism. To optimize fat loss, find other ways to move throughout the day.
Take regular breaks from sedentary work, use the stairs instead of the elevator, stand up while talking on the phone and try mini-workouts during commercial breaks while you watch TV at night. Any way that you can move more will help you get closer to your goals.
Fat loss is a process that progresses at different rates for everyone, but if you follow a consistent plan, you will win in the long run. Pay attention to your bodys needs so that you can stick with your regimen and make the most out of every workout!
