I know a lot of people who will tell you they want to lean up and slim down. However, the difference between these people and you, is that they aren’t prepared to do anything about it. The fact that you’re reading this means that you want to take action! Well, action taker, I like you. Let’s take a look at a few things you can do to lean up and slim down:
Cut Down on Your Carbohydrate Intake
People think that we need more carbohydrates than we really do. If we eat too many of them, which is very easy to do, our body stores them as fat. Fat is hard to get rid of, and makes us look out of shape. If you’re wondering why you can’t lose that last bit of belly fat, crunches and planks might not be the answer – it could simply be a few tweaks to your diet. Cut down on your starchy carbohydrate intake, including rice, potato, and bread. Even if they are brown versions. You can have a small portion after a tough workout. Try to have eggs for breakfast instead of cereal, toast, and porridge.
Vegetables are carbs, but you can eat as many of them as you like. Fruit are also carbs, so limit them to 2 portions per day, as they can be sugary and stop fat loss.
Drink Large Amounts of Water
Water helps us to flush out toxins, clear the skin, and makes us feel energised. It should be your go to drink. Drink at least 2 litres per day. Many people like to drink 3. It can be hard, but if you carry a bottle with you everywhere you go and drink whenever you think of it, you should find it easy.
Drink Green Tea and Black Coffee
People love to drink milky tea/coffee with spoonfuls of sugar and sweetener. While tea and coffee can be good for us, the things we put in it aren’t. For a boost in the morning or before a workout, drink black coffee. It can help to make us work harder in a workout, helping to burn fat all the more. Green tea is said to have metabolism boosting properties too! Some say it’s a superfood.
Take Supplements to Speed Things Up
Some supplements can speed things up, but don’t be taken in by marketing techniques designed to fool you. Different things work for different people, so you’ll need to test supplements out for a few weeks to know whether they work for you. I suggest you get information on New Fat Burner Reviews before making any decisions. One mistake people make is leaving all the work to the supplements. You must work hard too!
Test Out Plyometric Exercises
Plyometric, explosive exercises are great for burning fat. Try jump squats, jump lunges, and other plyometric exercises to really get that fat moving.
