Let’s get started!
Fat Loss Tips: Eliminating Junk Food
This may seem as obvious as heck, but junk food like sodas, cookies, cupcakes, chocolate bars and chips quickly add up to excess calories which really create that layer of fat covering all your hard work from the gym. In other words, no matter how hard you work out if you have junk food in your daily diet then progress will not only be difficult it will become almost impossible!
But what about junk food that is in disguise? In this case I’m talking about microwaveable popcorn, yogurt or frozen yogurt with high fructose corn syrup, rice cakes, vitamin water, bran muffins or even most protein bars (including cliff bars). This is a good reminder to make sure that you check the nutrition facts of anything you by that is processed in some way.

Fat Loss Tips: Alcohol = Beer Belly
Beer belly didn’t get it’s name for no reason! Unfortuntely alcohol serves a tripple whammy to your training results. It’s high in calories which are used as a primary energy source before your body burns off other food sources meaning you are more likely to store fat in a pretty big way. On top of that it messes with your metabolism and leaving you with a surplus of calories to store as fat.
Reach for a glass of red wine at the most, and try and shy away from beer as much as you can. The claims that beer has good nutrition benefits such as vitamins are all bogus claims in disguise. Try it out, stay away from alcohol for even just a couple weeks and see the difference it can make!
Fat Loss Tips: Go For the Burn
It’s funny when you sometimes get into this momentum of doing a certain number of repetitions and forget about the burn you should be aiming for. You know that burn feeling when you can’t do another rep but somehow you muster up the energy to push through?
This is the stage where your adrenaline kicks in and your muscles engorge with blood and you get that pumped feeling which is an incredible feeling that surpasses most! You want to try variations in your exercises as much as possible to get this burn feeling because this pushing the edge is what give results.
This is why I like to add super-sets (where you do one exercise after another without any rest between) and bring in high intensity interval training into my cardio workouts. One of the best super-sets is a bicep exercise called 21’s where for 7 repetition you bring the weight half way up, then for another 7 reps you start from that half way point and go to the top, and the final 7 reps you do the full movement. This is such a killer exercise that you will have to go with a much lighter weight to get through it.
Fat Loss Tips: After Each Weight Workout A Quick Cardio Session
This one is awesome, a short cardio session after a weight workout blasts you through belly fat like a grenade. Usually within 45 minutes to an hour of a good weight workout, all the sugar in your blood system is used up.
So doing a cardio session after this means you will tap right into your fat stores to get the energy you need for the movement.
I highly recommend that you try jumping rope for your post workout cardio because it activates every muscle in your body in quite a unique way and is fantastic for building your stamina, endurance level and coordination.
