1. EXERCISE MODERATELY WITH AEROBICS & WEIGHT GRADUALLY INCREASING THE INTENSITY AS FAT IS LOST
If you’re severely overweight, it is probably best to start your fat-burning phase with low-intensity aerobics and weight training, to ensure your body is not placed under undue stress at this early stage. When significantly overweight (over 25 percent body fat in males and 30 percent in females), it is best to work moderately as a way in which to gradually ease into a higher-intensity program.
2. GRADUALLY CUT BACK ON ALL BAD FATS, WHILE STRATEGICALLY CUTTING BACK ON CARBOHYDRATES
Fat intake of the wrong kind will result in increased fat gains. This stands to reason, as the body will typically burn carbohydrates for fuel and use protein for repair. Therefore, it makes sense to cut back on bad fat while increasing the good type.
3. MIX UP AEROBIC SESSIONS
These various activities will also have differing fat-burning effects. Combined, they may stimulate the metabolism to greater heights, therefore enhancing fat loss on a larger scale.
4. EXERCISE AEROBICALLY AFTER WEIGHT TRAINING OR FIRST THING IN THE MORNING
Will stimulate greater gains in fat loss. The idea is that glycogen stores will be depleted at this time and therefore fat will be used directly for fuel. In many cases, this strategy has worked. However, some feel it is not a valid method. It is worth trying though.
5. HIIT TRAINING
HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is an advanced form of aerobics designed to strip body fat at a faster rate. Although not for everyone, as it can be very demanding, HIIT is one of the more effective fat-loss methods for the intermediate to advanced trainer. An example of a HIIT session could be as follows: Two minutes of walking followed by fast running for 30 seconds, for 20 minutes total.
6. DRINK AT LEAST ONE GALLON OF WATER PER DAY
A higher than normal water intake is crucial for fat loss. Water intake is important for fat metabolism because it helps the liver perform the function of fat conversion for energy purposes.
7. WEIGHT TRAINING
Weight training is a perfect activity for fat loss. Although it doesn’t directly burn a greater number of fat stores than aerobics
