Make exercise part of your daily routine
The key to losing fat from your body is exercise, particularly cardiovascular exercise. Activities such as jogging, riding a bike, aerobics prompt your body to create more energy by burning calories and fats. If it is hard to take out time exercise on daily basis, be sure to do it at least three-to-five times a day.
Reduce your calorie intake
Consuming 3500 calories add one pound to your weight and vice versa. Determine the amount of calories in different types of food and eat accordingly. If you consume 3000 calories on daily basis, cut down 500 calories from it. Reducing too much of daily calorie intake abruptly may result in weakness and drowsiness, while also making the plan backfire.
Eat six small meals instead of three large meals
Making your meals smaller in size and more in number will not only serve to keep your body energised and curb your hunger, but will also allow your body to use it effectively to release energy, thus preventing the build-up of fat.
Taper off your carbohydrates as day progresses
Decrease the amount of carbohydrates that you consume in each meal as the day progresses. Your first meal should contain the maximum number of carbohydrates, while your final meal of the day should contain the least. The metabolism becomes significantly low during the night-time, thus breaking down less food and increasing the possibility of carbohydrates being stored as fat.
Lifting weights develops muscles by putting pressure on them and thus creates the need for a greater amount of energy. More calorie and stored fat begins to get burned to provide that energy.
Increase your water intake
Water is important in losing fats for various reasons. Firstly, drinking plenty of water before meals will help you reach the sensation of fullness faster, thus causing your appetite to drop. Secondly, it is used in the burning of calories and fat. Thirdly, it keeps the body hydrated, which is important to take care of as you will find yourself losing a lot of water during your exercise and weight lifting sessions.
