Hit the weights: Losing weight is always a good idea, unless you’re losing so much you’re also burning off muscle. By adding weight training into your routine, you’ll ensure your muscle is here to stay.
Sprint like crazy: You’ve got to want it, but if you’re willing to sprint 100 yards 10 times in a row, you’ll melt away about 500 calories from your waistline. That’s a Big Mac or two #Snickers bars you just burned off! Do that a few days a week and you’ll have a new body in no time.
Down the green: It may seem odd that drinking unsweetened green tea can help you burn fat, but try a glass of it after working out. Not only does it taste good, but it will also cause your love handles to fall off your sides faster.
Work out early: Like everyone else in the world, you’ve got a lot to do in the day. Imagine if you could get to the gym or run a few miles before it all gets started? By hitting your routine when you first wake up, before you even eat #breakfast, your body will burn fat like there’s no tomorrow!
Go to Sleep: Live in a constant state of sleep deprivation and you won’t be able to work out as hard as you should, and you’ll likely wind up making poor food and drink choices – especially late at night.
Stop sitting: Working a desk job is no excuse to stay on your backside all day. Need to talk with a coworker? Leave the email and phone alone, get up, and talk with your coworker face to face. Then take a quick walk during lunchtime to #rejuvenate yourself and power up for the rest of the day.
Wait for a second helping: If you want to burn off fat, give yourself 20 minutes after eating your first plate to let your brain catch up to your stomach. Most likely, you’ll feel full after that amount of time and will avoid adding unnecessary #calories you’ll just have to burn off later.
Add ice: Want to burn more fat faster, without even trying? Drop some ice into your water and drink it when it’s nice and cold. Drinking cold water has been proven to force your body to burn calories in order to warm the water to body temperature.
Go for lean protein: Protein helps boost your metabolism and build more fat-burning muscle. So grab a chicken breast and a spoon of peanut butter to give your body the upper hand in forcing fat far, far away!
