The Fat Burning Formula: The #1 Secret to Making Fat Melt AwayBy Rob Poulos...
Calories matter–but then again, they don’t. Food does too. What about water? On a diet, it can be hard to figure out what you need to do to lose weight–but there actually is a formula to making your diet successful. It’s something called the Fat Burning Formula, and today you’ll learn what you need to do to lose weight (and fat) effortlessly.
What is the Fat Burning Formula?
Nutritionists know two things: Why diets work and what components work for dieting. Unfortunately, few other people actually know this formula–until now. To lose weight (and keep it off), here are the four keys to this formula:
1. A healthy, well-balanced diet plan. Calories do matter–but you don’t need to count them to lose weight. Instead of counting, you can keep your caloric intake low by practicing moderation, or by eating from all of the food groups without overdoing it. Here’s what you should focus on:
- Plenty of whole grains. Whole grains contain fiber, which are good for your digestive system and help quell hunger pangs.
- Lean meat. Lean meat is a great source of protein, which can keep your metabolism high and help keep you fuller longer.
- Unlimited amounts of fruits and vegetables. Both fruits and vegetables are rich in vitamins and minerals, which keep you healthy–and a healthy body means a thin body.
On the contrary, there are some foods you shouldn’t even eat in moderation because they’re just too unhealthy, such as junk food. Chips and chocolate have no place in your diet, even in moderation. They should be consumed rarely, if at all.
2. A smart exercise program. Note that it should be a smart exercise program–not a long one. In fact, you could be making it harder to lose weight by opting for a longer, cardio-based exercise program, which can cause you lose more muscle mass, which in turn can lower your metabolism.
Here’s what matters instead: Strength training. This isn’t just for bodybuilders; short bouts of strength training have been shown to retain muscle mass, improve your health, and make your heart healthier, just like cardio exercise. Strength training also have the capacity to burn more fat than muscle, unlike traditional cardiovascular programs. For the best burn, choose a strength training program that incorporates something called compound exercises, which work out more than one muscle group at a time.
3. Get plenty of rest. Sleep is often underrated when it comes to a weight loss program, but make it count: Studies show people who don’t get enough sleep have higher levels of ghrelin, a hunger hormone that could cause you to eat more. Not getting enough sleep can also affect your judgment, causing you to make poor food decisions throughout the day. So make it a priority–get at least 7 hours of sleep if you’re not already. If you can’t get enough sleep, talk to your doctor, who may prescribe you a pill to make it easier to fall asleep.
So remember these keys to the Fat Burning Formula: A good diet program, an even better exercise program, and plenty of sleep. Many people have lost plenty of weight doing this, and so can you!
