Figure Out Your Fat Burning Heart Rate: 2 Formulas Plus Guide

By Rob Poulos On February 18, 2013 No Comments

Here’s the real truth–starving yourself or exercising for hours on end won’t make you thin.

Sometimes, it even makes you fatter, by eating away at your lean muscle tissue (this increases your metabolism).

Instead, research shows that losing weight–fat, specifically–relies on two factors, called caloric intake and fat burning exercise.  Here’s what they mean.

Why Caloric Intake is Important

Physiologically speaking, we accumulate that dreaded body fat not from choosing the wrong foods (although it does play a role), but from eating more calories in general.  It takes 3500 calories to create one pound of fat; conversely, if you want to lose that fat, you need to reduce your caloric intake by 3500 calories.

Fast Weight Loss Tips to Help Melt Fat Quickly

Though losing weight–fast–seems like an impossibility, it’s actually easy–if you know how to diet and exercise.  For the easiest way to slim down, follow these tips to a slimmer bod:

1. Exercise–in a different way.  Most diet programs want you to do the same, boring routine: Hours of cardio with little to no weightlifting.  Sure, in the short term cardio can increase your calorie burn, but it comes at a cost–it can have a catabolic effect on muscle tissue.  Muscle tissue isn’t just necessary for bodybuilders; having more

In fact, this workout had both Kalen and I huffing and puffing like a locomotive after just… 5 minutes…

Yes I realize that sounds crazy if you don’t know any more details… so let’s get into why this works so well and how you can perform this workout whenever you are in a time crunch. (happens every week to us!)
