Maximize Your Fat Loss with these tips!

5 Oct

Trying to lose weight is a challenge for everyone. Here are a few tips to help you maximize your fat loss and achieve the best results during your workout. These tips really work and have made a huge difference in my ability to lose weight more efficiently.

1. Do morning cardio on a Low Carb Breakfast or After Lifting Weights.

To explain this tip you have to understand how your body works. When you first start your cardio routine your body will naturally burn carbs first before it begins burning fat. To maximize fat loss you want to have the least amount of carbs in your body when you jump on that treadmill or elliptical. The best trick is to start first thing in the morning with a low carb snack that is high in protein like sliced turkey with cottage cheese or some boiled eggs.

2. Lift weight first then do cardio

This goes back to the same idea as tip #1. We want those carbs to be depleted. When you lift weights you are using carbs for energy so its great to eat some carbs before you start weight lifting for energy.  After weight lifting you should have very little carbs left in your body and you will start burning fat much quicker.

3. Extend your warm up

Why just do 10 minutes. Try doing a 15-20 minutes warm up, and then doing another 20-30 minutes of cardio after you lift weights. You’ll burn more calories and ensure you’ve used up all those carbs for energy.

4. Don’t workout without putting protein in your body immediately after.

Whether it’s a delicious fillet of salmon for lunch or a protein shake, make sure you put protein into your body right after you workout to maximize your muscle gain which of course leads to burning more fat. The more muscle you have, the more calories you will burn period! Don’t waste a workout by not giving your body what its craving right after.

5. Use Alli!

some might disagree and are able to stick to a clean diet 100% of the time, the other 90% of us need a slice of pizza every now and then. I don’t believe in deprivation. I eat healthy 80% of the time, and for those days I eat anything high in fat like pizza, fried calamari  fast food yikes! I take an Alli. They are FDA approved, they block some of the fat you eat from staying in your body, and they really work!
