7 Habits To Help You Burn Fat Faster

“It’s not always easy, but it’s always worth it” is one of my favorite quotes. As a fitness professional for the last 10 years it has been my passion to help anyone and everyone, to reach their goals and live healthier lifestyles. A lot of times, that means enlightening people on what to believe and what not to believe when it comes to fitness and health. If you are ever promised a quick and easy way to burn fat fast, RUN for the hills! Most likely they will not be healthy or sustainable strategies to help you reach your goals (and keep the results).

I want to help educate you on ways to help burn fat faster. I want to help bring out the healthier, stronger version of you through these methods which are best described as daily habits. The key here is to tackle 1-3 of these daily habits at a time. This enhanced focus is what will give you lifetime results.

So without further ado, here’s 7 Habits To Help You Burn Fat Faster.

1. Increase your protein intake – By increasing the amount of protein you get in your daily life you will help to boost your metabolism and also help maintain your lean muscle. The end result is that your body will burn more fat, faster.

2. Add lean muscle to your body (Which means, lift weights!) – Adding lean muscle to your body will allow you to burn calories even after you are done working out! Basically, the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn even at rest.

3. Drink more H20 – The more hydrated you are, the better your body will run. If you are not properly hydrated, your body will not do its job efficiently and will in turn slow down your metabolism. Slower metabolism = slower fat burning process.

4. Add more fiber – Increasing your fiber through clean, healthy sources (fruits and vegetables) will help keep you fuller longer. Dark colored vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, and artichokes are all great sources of fiber.

5. Up your good fats– When you increase one macronutrient (protein, fat, carbohydrate) you must decrease another to reach your caloric goals. By decreasing carb intake, and increasing fat, you lower insulin levels in your body. By doing this, you allow your body to access fat stores and use them for energy, while “also allowing fat to enter and fuel your muscles.

6. Pairing your meals – It’s important to make sure you’re eating a well-balanced meal/snack every time you eat. Meaning when you eat, make sure you’re pairing a protein with a fat, fiber, and/or card. Building this habit will help you burn fat much faster and keep your blood sugar on an even keel.

7. More HIIT cardio, less slow cardio – High Intensity Interval Training will give you a better bang for your buck when it comes to cardio. Adding short bursts of high intensity followed by brief rest periods will allow you to burn more calories, in a shorter amount of time. Which is exactly what we do in our Zones 6-8. Slower versions of cardio (jogging, bike, etc) are still good to incorporate, but HIIT will give you the best results.

So, as you can see, these are not necessarily easy lifestyle changes to incorporate into your every day, however they are simple, necessary steps that need to be taken in order to increase fat loss. Try adding 2-3 of these methods into your daily routine to start, and see what differences you notice!
