Today I’m going to give you a few tips for burning more body fat on a daily basis. In order to lose weight, you want to become a fat burning machine. There are many ways to do that, most of which are not difficult at all. Here are some things you can do every day that will help you burn more fat.
Increase Your Protein
One great way to start burning more fat on a regular basis is to eat more foods that contain protein. With more protein in your diet, you are going to start increasing your energy. Higher energy, as you know, also means a higher metabolic rate, which helps you to burn more fat and calories. Protein also helps to build lean muscle, which can also help to burn more fat throughout the day. Some good options for lean protein are turkey and chicken, some nuts, and some veggies.
Many people say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and that if you only have time to cook one meal a day, that it should be breakfast. I am on the fence about this. Some days I want breakfast, other days I don’t. I tend to eat if I’m hungry, if I’m not really hungry, I will have my coffee with coconut oil in it. They say that breakfast will get your engine running, providing the energy you need for the rest of the day. If you enjoy a filling meal in the morning, it can help curb your appetite and reduce cravings throughout the rest of the day. For breakfast, try to enjoy high protein foods like eggs or a smoothie with some protein powder in it. This is going to get you ready for fat burning all day long.
Mix Up Your Workouts
A common mistake people make when they start exercising more often is doing the same type of workout constantly. If you want to lose weight and burn fat, you need to mix it up. Weight loss plateaus are often the result of eating the same thing, but also doing the same workout. So if you can, try to mix it up during the week. Add an extra day of weight training or try indoor rock climbing over the weekend instead of going on your normal run. This will work different muscle groups, burning more fat in the long run. I personally love yoga. I go to different classes every day and they are never the same. So, I’m constantly working different muscle groups.
Drink More Cold Water
Not only should you be drinking more water in general, but you should try to drink cold water. The colder the water is, the higher it raises your metabolism. Keep a pitcher of water in your fridge so you aren’t using plastic bottles all day long. This is also a good time for making infused water and keeping the pitcher cold in the refrigerator.
I hope these ideas help if you are stuck or just want to mix things up a little bit. What is favorite way to break a plateau?
