Best Easy Ways To Burn More Fat - Women's Health
Improve your flab-burning metabolic rate and start losing weight fast
What's worse, if the food shortage (meaning, your crash diet) continues, you'll begin burning muscle tissue, which just gives your enemy, visceral fat, a greater advantage. Your metabolism slows further, and fat goes on to claim even more territory.
GO TO BED EARLIER
EAT MORE PROTEIN
Add a serving, like 3 ounces of lean meat, 2 tablespoons of nuts, or 8 ounces of low-fat yogurt, to every meal and snack. Plus, research shows that protein can up postmeal calorie burn by as much as 35 percent.
GO ORGANIC WHEN YOU CAN
Of course, it's not always easy to find or afford organic produce. But in general, conventionally grown items that you peel avocado, grapefruit, bananas are fine. But choose organic when buying celery, peaches, strawberries, apples, blueberries, nectarines, sweet bell peppers, spinach, kale and collard greens, cherries, potatoes, and imported grapes; they tend to have the highest levels of pesticides.
GET UP, STAND UP
DRINK COLD WATER
German researchers found that drinking 6 cups of cold water a day (that's 48 ounces) can raise resting metabolism by about 50 calories daily enough to shed 5 pounds in a year, with essentially zero additional effort. The increase may come from the work it takes to heat the water to body temperature.
