How To Lose Fat 1
One of the key factors in losing fat is strength training. A lot of people miss out in this part thinking that it is unnecessary but unfortunately they are wrong, dead wrong.
Try this method for a change. Before you head on to the gym, make sure you know what muscle group you are going to work on and also the exercises. Then, arrange your exercise in a manner so that you can do three exercises back to back with little rest. Focus on large muscle groups only like legs, back, chest and shoulders. Do 3 sets of this circuit and each set do 15 repetitions; this will make your heart rate stay high throughout the workout, which is important for fat loss.
In your exercises, try to use free weights, cables and stability balls. This equipment will recruit many muscle fibers and deliver better results compared to machines. While you are in the gym, you need to get down to business. No chit chatting and wasting time in front of the mirror looking at yourself.
Strength training is very important to your weight loss program because it is the only tissue in the body that burns fat. The more muscle you have in your body, the more body fat you can burn. The amount of muscle you have in your body also determines your metabolism, The more muscle you have in your body the higher your metabolism.
One pound of muscle burns an extra 50 calories per day. This is the amount of calories needed to support the muscle because it is a living tissue. Hence if you compare two person that weighs 160 pounds, but person A has 100 pounds of muscle and person B has 120 pounds of muscles, you can be sure the person B can eat more and lose body fat much easier because the extra muscle in his body burns extra calories but notice that both of them weighs the same.

The third step here is definitely my favorite and yours too. You need to eat more food. Yes, but not junk food, instead, eat lots of high quality food that will keep your body running efficiently. Try to include healthy protein, carbohydrates and good fat in every meal. Consume foods like egg whites, poultry, fruits, whole grains, vegetables and olive oil. You need to feed your engine well to burn fat. Stay away from simple sugar, sweets, corn syrup and high glycemic fruits.
Break up your meals so that you are eating 6 to 7 small meals a day. Every time you eat, your metabolism gets fired up to digest the food. So, it makes sense eating more but just make sure it is in small portions and contains only the good stuff.
