A healthy diet and regular exercise can help you lose weight. But did you know there are ways to burn fat faster? Yeah, we’re not kidding! Here are 10 easy and very effective ways you can make that happen.
BUT, first you have to HIDE THAT SCALE. Shove it in the back of your closet. Bury it if you must. The scale can be deceiving. You may put on six pounds of muscle and drop six pounds of fat and still weigh the same or worse, see the numbers increase.
How to Burn Fat Faster
(1) Enjoy Breakfast
Not only is breakfast the most significant meal of the day, it also builds energy which plays a crucial part in weight loss. When we sleep, our metabolism stagnates and the course of digesting food sets it in action again which helps burn body fat so don’t skip it.
(2) Get Enough Sleep
According to studies, those who lack sleep have more difficulty processing carbs. Insulin and stress levels are very high and when you’re exhausted, you become inactive which piles up the fat. Lock in 6 to 8 hours of shuteye every night.
(3) Eat a Lot
No, we don’t mean you go to an eat-all-you-can resto but eating 6 meals a day – 3 main meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and 3 mini meals (snacks). Eating frequently boosts your metabolism and prevents your body from going into “starvation mode” which we all know will make you put on more pounds.
If you have a busy lifestyle, Formula 1 Nutritional Shake Mix is a perfect meal-replacement shake that’s easy to prepare and is very tasty all while providing you a healthy, nutritious meal and the vital nutrients you need for better health and burning body fat.
(4) Consume More Protein
Protein helps build and sustain lean muscle so ensure you get enough of it. It increases your metabolism helping you amp up the calories you burn. At least 20-35% of your diet should have protein.
(5) Mix Up Workout Routines
You need to exercise to burn fat. But you must keep your routines varied in order to build muscle, lose fat and burn more calories. This way, your body doesn’t get used to a specific routine and goes on autopilot. Do a combination of strength training, light weights and HIIT (high-intensity intervals) (e.g. 60 seconds sprint, 120 seconds walk, jump rope) with short rest periods. Do these 3 times a week.
Include yoga as well as this helps manage stress better to keep cortisol from fueling your appetite and slowing down your metabolism. Sign up for aerobics and dance classes too.
(6) Cut Back on Carbs
Skipping the starch is one secret on how to lose weight fast. Limit your intake of refined carbs and munch on whole grains, fruits and vegetables instead.
(7) Drink Green Tea and Loads of Water
Green tea enhances metabolism. It is said that catechins (an antioxidant) found in green tea supplies the increase. Drink Thermojetics Instant Herbal Beverage which is a delicious, low-calorie instant tea mix that increases energy and keeps you rejuvenated while you watch your weight. This Herbal Beverage will boost your metabolism and help you to burn more fat.
Water is also a very good metabolism booster. Increase your water intake to at least 1.5 liters per day.
(8) Munch on Fat-burning Foods

(9) Think Before You Eat
Avoid feeding your emotions. It’s very easy to mistake emotional hunger for physical hunger. Ask yourself, “Am I really hungry? Or I am just upset and have nothing to do?” If you’re really famished, eat something healthy such as a peanut butter, banana and dairy products.
(10) Include Weight Loss Products
