1. Drink LOTS of water.
I mean it. Gals are better at this than guys; they are maid to believe water will help them stay beautiful. Still, if you, my man, are determent to stay a one ugly dude, drink up. Water will benefit your digestion, speed up your metabolism, and help to recover from your workouts (or hangover - whichever is applicable).
2. Eat More.
Here is another surprise for you. Eat more frequently, but smaller portions. Eat more fresh, rather than processed overpriced crap. Eat more protein, like tuna, lean cuts of meat, eggs, and beans. Eat more salad: chop some veggies or fruits, and dig in. X-nay on potato salad. You do not want to drawn yourself in mayo - it will show later in a form of unexpectedly appearing flab on your former appealing body parts. Not good for spring.
3. Add a Natural Supplement.
Green Tea, Pyruvate, L-Carnitine, L-Glutamine - all safe when taken as directed, and not combined with any medications, or chronic conditions. Hope you are healthy, but if not - make sure you do your research, gather info, and stop by your Doc's office for a nice chat what is the best for your condition. Than said, supplements can speed up fat burn, and add much needed motivation and determination to stick to your routine.
4. Get yourself to the GYM.
Agh! You knew it! Same old, same old... Take it or leave it, depending on the results you want. If you want to burn fat, not to loose your muscle weight - get down to work.
While at it, remember not to strain yourself. Hah?! I knew I would gain your attention here. Your Fat Burning Zone falls in between 60% to 80% of your Target Heart Rate. You can calculate it on WebMD Calculator.
Remember, we are talking about Fat Burn, not about training for endurance, or strength. Moderate intensity and consistency of your efforts will get fat loss results you want.
5. Find a partner.
Get a buddy to start your Fat Loss Quest with you. We are the kind of species, who thrive on support of our fellow human beings, right? Imagine twice the motivation to get you started! Imaging twice the shame, if you decide to quit! Nothing will keep you going like announcing your determination to loose fat, and watch them squirm with jealousy upon seeing your change into better, leaner, healthier self. To tame them, give away free passes to your gym. And keep up the good work!
