5 Ways to Burn More Fat

By: Snap Fitness

Ready to drop those extra few pounds?  Here are five simple ways to shakeup your workout for fast results:

 

1. Eat Breakfast

You’ve probably heard numerous times that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This is especially true when trying to lose weight.  By starting the day with a healthy and balanced breakfast, you’ll skip on the unhealthy foods in emergency hunger mode later in the day.  It will also jump start your metabolism, allowing the muscles you've built to be nourished while initiating the fat burning process.

 

2. Eat More Small Meals

After eating your early breakfast you should schedule to eat 5-8 smaller meals a few hours apart throughout the day. This will provide your muscles a constant flow of nourishment, which keeps your metabolism surging during the day.  When you eat three larger meals it is tougher for your body to digest food for fuel and your metabolism has trouble catching up. Eating smaller meals is the way to go when trying to lose weight.

 

3. Mix it Up

A great way to transform a normal, muscle-building routine into a super charged fat-burning workout is to mix resistance exercises with bodyweight movements. Otherwise, your body adapts to the workout and you don't get as much out of it.  

 

4. Drink Green Tea

In addition to a healthy diet, drinking green tea will help push your fat burning to a new level. It is loaded with antioxidants and various substances that are beneficial for health.

 

5. Push Your Pace

If you’re looking for an effective and efficient way to shed weight try high-intensity interval training. HIIT increases the release of growth hormones, which mobilize fat to be used as fuel, plus it causes your metabolism to stay elevated, so you're burning more fat for several hours post-workout. Try this HIIT workout for quick results.
