7 Sneaky Fat Loss Tips You Probably Haven't
So, you're training hard,
you're lifting weights, you're interval training, you're cutting out all
the crap and you've lost a fair few pounds. Congratulations! But why the
sad face? Oh....you can't seem to shift that last few pounds that you
REALLY want to unveil your sexy tummy? What's next then? Surely you
don't give up now? You've done so well to get as far as you have.
You have a few options actually, which are pretty obvious, even to the
untrained eye, here are just a few of them:
1. Train Harder
2. Train Longer
3. Do more workouts
4. Cut back on calories
5. Give up your social life
Now, you could do all or any of these, but will it really be worth it?
Do you really have time? If so, then great, crack on but I wouldn't
fancy being tied to a treadmill and moving my mattress into the gym. I'm
also assuming you don't want to spend the very little time you'll have
away from the gym sitting at home on your own,without the opportunity to
eat out or have friends over for a few glasses of red wine (for the
anti-oxidants of course)?
So how about I give you some options and tips that'll make shifting that
stubborn belly fat a hell of a lot easier but I must warn you- They're
SLY and they're SNEAKY, not only that but they're downright SIMPLE TO
A few of these bad boys may come as a shock to you but believe me, as
simple as they are, they really do work as you'll find out later.
So without further ado here they are:
1: Get to bed before 10:30pm- this is number one for a reason IT WORKS!
Poor quality sleep and lack of sleep can be one of the main contributers
to fat storage. When you go to bed too late (after 10:30pm) your
hormones don't react in a positive manner.You can become insulin
resistance and your body will really struggle to shrug off that excess
So get to bed by 10:30 (at the latest) to make sure you get the biggest
'hit' of the hormones that'll help you get rid of body fat. I was
recently at a seminar in Dublin and the worlds highest paid fitness
trainer (since 1994 may I add) told us sleep was the NUMBER 1 factor in
any fat loss program even ahead of diet and exercise.
2. Start each day with a handful of nuts
Nuts are not only a great source of protein and good fats- they help to
balance out blood sugar early in the morning, meaning you're more likely
to use fat as energy and can help curb cortisol, the hormone that eats
into your fat burning muscle tissue!
3. Have an eggscellent breakfast
It's a study done by Dr. David Ludwig at Harvard University; he studied
groups of overweight individuals. The study found that the group who ate
a veggie omelette for breakfast ate 81% less the rest of the day than a
group who ate porridge for breakfast.
4. Take more fish oil
Fish oil has many, many benefits to fat loss and overall health but its
ability to switch on the fat burning genes and switch off the fat
storing genes is second to none. Fish oil is also great for balancing
blood sugar levels and reducing carbohydrate cravings.
5.Use milled flax seeds
Flax seed is a very good source of omega-3 fatty acids. You may have
already tried the oil (yuck) but try and get your hands on the milled
seeds.These are great sprinkled on salads and thrown into a good protein
shake. Flax seed can help lower the amount of estrogen-16 in women's
bodies. Estrogen-16 causes fat storage in the hips and thighs among
other things. Green tea is also awesome for reducing Estrogen-16 levels.
6. Find a better multivitamin
A good multivitamin to help boost the immune system is vital in losing
body fat. The stronger the immune system- the quicker you burn fat.A
good multivitamin will also help meet nutritional deficiencies. In order
to find a good multi look at the kind of magnesium in the vitamin. If it
is magnesium oxide the vitamin is worthless. Also, the manganese content
should be as low as possible, with less than 5-7 grams per day. A good
multivitamin to help boost the immune system is vital in losing body
fat. The stronger the immune system- the quicker you burn fat.
7. Fire up your Butt Cheeks
90% of clients that visit me looking to look better naked have
'dysfunctional' glutes. Meaning their buttocks don't work properly. This
can cause all sorts of problems including: low back pain, knee pain,
lack of pelvic control and this condition can actually make your stomach
look bigger by causing the pelvis to 'tip' forwards, hence making your
tummy stick out! Try this: clench your butt cheeks together in a
standing position for 10 seconds, repeat 5 times- do this before your
workout and as many times as possible during the workout.
8.... Oh I know I told you 7 BUT I thought I'd give you a 'bonus'
Add salt to your water
Drinking more water to aid fat loss is obvious right? when your body
sheds fat, it releases toxins into the system, so make sure to drink
more water, to ensure the body can then dump these toxins, along with
excess fat! Why the salt? Notice you pee quite a lot when you up your
water intake? Well adding a good quality SEA SALT can actually help your
body 'hold on' and use more of the water than you drink. Meaning, faster
So there you have it, the 7 most SLY, SNEAKY and SIMPLE tips that you
probably didn't know about!
Implement these into your current fat loss program and I guarantee
they'll make a big difference to your physical appearance and body
Don't believe me? Give them a whirl!
I implemented JUST the sleep to one of my client's schedules and her fat
loss sped so much that last weekend she was cursing me as she bought a
pair of jeans a size smaller!! 14 days after making just that ONE
