3 Simple Nutrition Tips To Blast Your Fat

How many diets have you been on? How many? You do not have to diet, count calories or count points to lose weight. By incorporating the following three simple tips, you will be successful in your weight loss.

Fat Blasting Tip #1:

Drop The Sugar!

Sugar is the number one fat producing 'non-food.' Americans ingest an average of 141 lbs of sugar each year. Most people have no idea they are ingesting that much sugar. For example, just one can of soda contains 15 teaspoons of sugar. Imagine sitting down and eating 15 teaspoons of white granulated sugar in one sitting.

If too much sugar is ingested in any form, Insulin turns OFF the fat burning switch and turns ON the fat storage switch. Now, this is bad enough, but it can also cause you to lose lean muscle mass. Lean muscle is key in promoting weight loss. Muscle is metabolically active and burns calories even at rest. When you break down muscle, you slow your metabolism.

Sugar is hiding in many products so it is vital to begin reading labels. Look for hidden sugars with names such as brown sugar, confectioner's sugar, corn syrup, dextrin, honey, invert sugar, maple syrup, raw sugar, beet sugar, cane sugar, corn sweeteners, evaporated cane juice, high fructose corn syrup, malt, molasses, and turbinado sugar, to name a few..

Fat Blasting Tip #2:

Stop Skipping Meals!

When you skip meals you gain weight. Why? Although it may seem logical to some that missing breakfast would spur weight loss, that isn't the case. Eating increases your metabolism, thus your metabolism slows down in an attempt to conserve calories during a period it perceives as a situation where limited fuel is available. A faster metabolism burn calories more efficiently. People who eat more frequently tend to have lower body weights, possibly because they're able to more effectively control hunger.

People who eat breakfast lose and maintain weight compared to those who do not eat breakfast.

Fat Blasting Tip #3:

Add Protein To Every Meal!

Your trick to burning fat? Protein. Protein is needed to preserve muscle during weight loss and to facilitate fat burning. Eat frequent small meals with protein (very important),complex carbs for energy, fiber for optimal digestion and fullness, and essential fats for their role in burning fat and optimal health. An example meal would include a lean protein (lean chicken breast), a complex carbohydrate (brown rice), and veggies. Eat every 3 hours. By Adding protein, Avoiding simple sugars and refined carbs (white flour products, white rice), your body will become very efficient at burning calories - a fat burning machine.

Eating meals frequently and including protein with each meal allows your blood sugar to remain stable, it prevents muscle loss from occurring (a pound of muscle burns up to nine times the calories of a pound of fat), prevents blood sugar spikes, and weight-gain inducing inflammation. Eating frequently and including protein will help boost your metabolism and help you burn fat all day long.

A study published in the International Journal of Obesity reported that eating two eggs for breakfast has been shown to boost weight loss by 65%, compared to the same amount of calories from carbohydrates - like a bagel.

Put these three tips to work in your life and you will achieve that slim body you've been dreaming of. Take Action Now.
