If you want to lose weight fast, you need to understand that in most cases it is going to take time. Results don’t happen overnight – and you need to enjoy the process in order to ensure there is sustainable adherence. That’s why you can’t follow a diet you hate/ find too difficult and expect great results. It’s not sustainable enough, not to mention the fact that you have the wrong mindset and motivation.
Whether you’re looking to improve your overall health or simply slim down for summer, burning off excess fat can be quite challenging. In addition to diet and exercise, numerous other factors can influence weight and fat loss. Luckily, there are a number of simple steps you can take to increase fat burning, quickly and easily.
You’re not going to succeed if you focus too much on your weight and obtaining extremely fast results. If you lose weight too fast, you risk losing muscle mass. The best way to lose fat is by creating a sustainable lifestyle that you can enjoy. Start by slowly introducing new habits and making smarter choices every single day.
Strength training is a type of exercise that requires you to contract your muscles against resistance. It builds muscle mass and increases strength. Most commonly, strength training involves lifting weights to gain muscle over time. Research has found strength training to have multiple health benefits, especially when it comes to burning fat. Strength training has been shown to increase resting energy expenditure and reduce fat.
High-intensity interval training, also known as HIIT, is a form of exercise that pairs quick bursts of activity with short recovery periods to keep your heart rate elevated. HIIT can be incredibly effective at ramping up fat burning and promoting weight loss. HIIT may also help you burn more calories in a shorter amount of time than other forms of cardio.
For an easy way to get started with HIIT, try alternating between walking and jogging or sprinting for 30 seconds at a time. You can also cycle between exercises like burpees, push-ups or squats with a short rest period in between. An alternative could be to increase your NEAT exercises.
