TIP 1: EXERCISE EFFICIENCY
The idea here is that we’re all very busy, and I don’t have time to spend hours at the gym or workout nearly every day of the week. I know most people are in the same boat.
So what is needed is an exercise routine that can be performed infrequently and takes very little time, but still gives you great results…
…now the only way to do this is to use a form of exercise that produces fat loss in the time that you’re NOT working out.
Most popular forms of exercise provide most of their calorie and fat burning during the exercise…but this is not efficient because we can only exercise so much…even the aerobic and cardio fanatics out there can only stand say 5-10 hours a week of exercise.
So with 24 hours a day times 7 days, that gives us 168 hours in a week… so even working out 5-10 hours a week still leaves us with 160 or more hours that we won’t be working out…
…it is these 160 hours we should be focusing on if we want maximum fat loss in minimum time…
…and when you can do that, now you’ve got exercise efficiency. So the idea is to get the most fat burning out of those 160+ hours that you’re not working out…
…and the best way to do it that I’ve found is by using a very high level of intensity combined with resistance training exercises performed in fairly rapid succession.
This type of exercise will burn fat for up to 2-3 days after the workout is over, so you can see why just 2-3 sessions a week of this type of exercise can double or even triple the amount of fat loss that can occur with typical type of exercise in the so called “fat burning zone”.
TIP 2: FOCUS ON MICRONUTRIENTS FIRST
Perhaps the most important tip I can give anyone trying to get and stay lean is to look at food from a micronutrient standpoint.
This is not something you’ll hear from most nutrition experts, in fact they’ll tell you just the opposite, to look at your food from a macronutrient view (protein, carbs, fats)…
…this is what most people end up doing, and it is still important for fat loss, but the big turning point in my personal fat loss journey happened when I started to focus on eating most of my calories from foods that are super loaded with nutrients instead of stressing out over my protein, fat, and carb ratios.
The foods I’m talking about are vegetables, fruits, beans, legumes, nuts, seeds.
Now don’t mistake this for a vegetarian or vegan diet, that’s not what I’m talking about, but a diet that supplies the body with the nutrients it requires to burn fat optimally.
Now, you’ll notice that I didn’t include lean animal meats on this list. Well, that doesn’t mean these foods won’t help you burn fat, they will, but what I’m saying is you need to take your focus off of the whole protein first mindset and instead go with a “nutrient first” mindset Renew supplement review.
I was raised, as I’m sure a lot of people are, that any good meal needs to start with a big portion of beef or poultry, and that the nutrient rich foods (like vegetables, fruits, beans, etc.) are a small part of that meal, if at all.
I’m saying you have to flip that equation entirely and that most of your meal should be based in the nutrient loaded foods, with a smaller bit of the animal proteins.
The fact is that these foods have the most nutrients, and when you give your body the required nutrients without overloading it with foods that have little nutrients, fat loss become so much easier because the hunger and cravings that plague dieters almost disappears.
