Let’s take a look at 3 ways you can send your weight loss into overdrive to blast away fat and achieve your fitness goal.
Intermittent Fasting is insanely popular right now and with good reason: it is scientifically proven to promote fat loss.
Intermittent Fasting is all about fasting for a bit every day. The most used method of is the 16 / 8. This is where you fast for 16 hours and eat for 8 hours. Many people stop eating the night before at 8 p.m. and begin eating the next day at 12 p.m.
For example, your new eating schedule would look like this:
8 p.m. – Stop eating
Water, tea, and black coffee are okay
12 p.m. – Begin eating
8 p.m. – Stop eating
Consider Cycling Your Carbs
Low carbohydrate diets are a proven way to support fat loss but if you are a very active person, especially if you are a weight lifter, you may need your occasional heavy carbohydrates days.
Consider cycling your carbohydrate consumption to match your most brutal training days. On those days you are going all out, eat more carbohydrates. On your rest days, focus on protein and healthy fats with no to minimal carbohydrates.
Wear a Sauna Suit
Neoprene-based sauna suits provide you with the exact environment you’d find in a real sauna at a fraction of the cost. These suits are tough and ready to help you take your workouts to the next level. Even if you only wear the sauna suit around the house, you’re still triggering a number of weight loss benefits including the following:
- Increases the number of calories you burn by up to 13%
- Boosts the amount of calories you burn AFTER your workout by up to 22%
- Results in a better overall weight loss of up to 40%
Choosing one of these methods and sticking to it is key. Even better if you combine all of these hacks for quicker results.
