The goal for most people is burning away the excess fat they carry or store fat. You may think fat is fat though that necessarily isn’t the case. A lot of claims made by programs only look at the science of burning fat without the greater understanding between stored fat and fat in the blood stream. Many fat burning zones are simply burning fat you have in your blood stream which is why you are not getting any skinnier. Check out Live Lean Today’s online fat loss workouts.
So how do we burn fat out of our fat cells?
Keys to Burning Stored Fat
1. Raise your metabolism: the mistake most people make they look too much at how many calories they burn during a workout instead of how many they are burning 24 hrs a day. Intense exercise challenges your metabolism greater and forces it to increase. A proper metabolism burns 70% fat as a source of energy all day long.
2. Interval Training: cardio interval training has been demonstrated to increase the body’s ability to burn fat all day long. Interval training is not about how many calories you burn, the rate at which you burn calories is important.
3. Physically Active: Majority of your fat loss occurs while you are resting. The more physical activity is part of your life the thinner you will be. Play with your kids, take the stairs, or park at the back of parking lots makes a difference.
4. 5 small meals: The only way to train your body to burn fat all day long is eating throughout the day. Five small meals is essential for optimal fat burning.
