Tricks To Help You Burn Off Weight Fast

By Rob Poulos...

Some of us need to lose weight simply to avoid risky health problems and to look & feel better about our appearance, while others simply want to burn weight fast for a special occasion like a wedding or class reunion. Whatever your reasons are for needing to burn fat faster, all that matters is that you go about it in a healthy way.

Rather than resorting to fad diets to burn more weight, consider a few easy tricks that can help you burn more fat every day. Keep reading to learn more.

Fat Burning Foods

One way to help you burn fat is to add more fat burning foods to your diet. Fat burning foods are foods that burn additional calories during the digestion process so you get to burn faster than an unhealthy diet filled with sugar, sodium, fat and calories.

One of the best things about using fat burning foods to lose weight fast is that there are enough of them in a wide variety of food groups that even a picky eater will be able to find a few to add to his or her diet. Foods like salmon, eggs and almonds have a significant amount of protein that will satisfy your appetite as well as omega 3 fatty acids which help you burn more and faster.

You can also add a cup or 3 of green tea your diet, add a variety of berries to your day by making a smoothie or adding them to another fat burning food—oatmeal! Vegetarians aren’t left out either; a cup of kidney beans can give you 11 grams of fiber and 15g of protein so you burn fat and eat less food.

Lean Protein

Lean proteins like salmon, chicken or turkey breasts (without skin) and egg whites are another great way to burn fat fast. Because protein satisfies your appetite and takes a lot longer to convert, it burns more calories than foods that are easily converted during digestion.

A diet with lean proteins will help you lose weight because protein is an incredible source of energy thanks to the hard work your body does converting protein to energy. This means that not only does protein burn faster, but it gives you tons of energy so you can make it through a fat burning workout too.

Weight Training

One of the best ways to burn more fat is to enjoy a regular weight training program. Muscle burns more than fat, up to nine times as much so the more lean muscle you gain the more effective fat burning you will experience.

Weight training can also help you to burn fat fast because it increases the rate at which you burn calories at rest, so regular weight training will help you burn calories when you’re just sitting down watching a movie. But weight training can also boost your ability to burn weight fast in those few hours right after your weight training program.

Skip Happy Hour

If you want to continue to burn fat you will have to give up happy hour or at least reduce your alcohol intake during happy hour. Drinking alcohol adds unnecessary liquid calories to your diet that you probably forget to include in your daily intake, which means you have more weight to burn, not less.

Alcohol slows down your metabolism and the more alcohol you drink, the slower it becomes, which is counterproductive to your goal of burning weight fast. Another problem with alcohol for weight loss is that when you drink more of the fat from your diet gets converted to fat. This is especially true if you already have a diet that is high in fat and calories.

You don’t need to get rid of alcohol forever but if your goal is to reach a certain weight or body fat percentage, a diet with lots of alcohol won’t help you get there.

Keep It Interesting

One of the best ways to burn more fat is to keep your exercise routines  interesting by alternating between a variety of activities. The more you perform the same exercise, whether its yoga or running or swimming, the more your body gets used to it and the less weight you burn off. To make sure you’re getting the most out of every single workout, switch it up by doing a different activity at least one day each week.

Pick a few different activities that you enjoy such as rock climbing, basketball, handball, dancing or bicycling. These activities will make sure that you burn weight each time you work up a sweat.

Go To Bed

Even if you pride yourself on being a night owl, you need to go to bed earlier if you have an early wake up time. When we don’t get enough sleep it is more difficult for our bodies to get rid of excess weight because we don’t process carbs as efficiently as those who get a full night of sleep. The few hours of sleep you get, the more insulin and cortisol we have, which helps us keep weight rather than but if off.

Most of us require 7 or 8 hours of sleep each night to feel well rested so that our bodies perform at a maximum level. So if you have to be up early, you need to go to bed earlier if you want to quickly achieve your fat loss goals.

    Hi Rob,

    Really useful and informative post. Can I also add another point. That is to eliminate stress from your life (-easier said than done I know!). Not only does stress distract you from your weight loss goals, it also affects sleep and digestion.

    So the next time your boss is being a ‘typical’ boss’, breath, count to 10 and picture a leaner, toned and healthier you!
