20 Nutrition and Fat Burning Tip

Fat Burning Tip - Eat small but evenly divided caloric meals every 2 and a half to 3 hours during the day to keep your metabolism up.

When you skip meals, especially breakfast, your brain tells your body's metabolism to slow down to conserve energy and STORE FAT! That's exactly what you don't want to do.
I understand that this may be hard to do if you simply don't have the time to prepare meals all day. But if you need to prepare the foods and store them in Tupperware containers so that when it comes time to eat, all you need to do is stick it in the microwave, then do that.

Besides, if it's important to you, you will make the time to prepare. We all do what we want to do with our free time. It has to be a priority. And if you don't plan to succeed - you have planned to fail.
More Fat Burning Tips:
    • Eat a good healthy breakfast WITH some protein - This jump starts your metabolism
    • Include a source of protein with every meal. You want to maintain muscle even if you are a woman because muscle burns calories and fat does not. More muscle = higher metabolism
    • A couple of meals could be considered a snack but still include some protein
    • Eat your less hearty meals toward the end of the day
    • Watch out for foods and drinks with High Fructose Corn Syrup or sugar (Colas, Kool-Aid, candies even some popular yogurts - Read the labels). This could be one of the biggest factors in our obesity problem.
    • Drink plenty of water everyday - Preferably 64 ounces
    • Work out 3-6 times a weekfor 45-60 minutes - Consistency counts and you
    • won't have to cut your calories so much to reach your goals
    • If you're used to a lot of sugar in your diet - it will be hard at first because sugar makes you crash after the "high" - Stay with it soon you won't be in a viscious blood sugar cycle
    • Include fruits in your diet but in moderation because they can be fairly high in calories
    • Include nuts and seeds in your diet but vary sparringly because they are mostly fat - the good news is that it is the good kind of fat
    • plently of vegatables in your diet - 5 or more servings. I know you may not like vegies but there are ways to get them in your diet. Try using a juicer. You'd be surprised at how many veggies you can get in a glass. Then add an apple to make it taste sweet. Another way to get a super vitamin and mineral packed shot of vegies is by using Dr. Sear's Ultra Greens with a glass of orange juice. I do everyday.
    • Make sure you also get plenty of fiber in your diet, otherwise you could
    • get waste impacted in your bowels over time, affecting your body's ability to absorb nutrients, not to mention the pooch in your belly. You may want to try Ultimate Colon Cleanse to flush your body of waste and toxins.
    • Read labels and learn what has more than 30% of fat from calories (20% if possible). Remember fat has 9 calories per gram and protein and carbohydrates have 4 calories per gram. So fat has more than twice as many calories per gram!
    • Limit your intake of beef or pork and when you do eat them make sure they are lean cuts of meat. Sausage is probably the highest fat type of meet that you can eat. Beware.
    • Eat as much fish as possible. It has the good kind of fat that helps lower cholesterol. However, be aware that the FDA warns children or women who are pregnant or may become preganant to not eat more than 2 searvings of predator fish a week. Such as tuna, swordfish and shark etc. They have high levels of mercury in them.
    • Grill or bake your meats as much as possible. Avoid fried foods as much as possible
    • Avoid fast foods as much as possible (there are few exceptions) and eat out occasionally to reward your self but don't over indulge. If you eat out a lot, ask the waiter for information on calories in their meals and ask for alternative cooking methods (grilled instead of pan fried, canola oil instead of butter etc.).
    • Avoid refined flour like white bread and pasta. They are empty in nutrients and fiber and are a complex carbohydrate. Use or ask for whole grain pasta or whole grain bread.
    • Eliminate or eat in moderation complex carbohydrates such as bread, pasta, potatoes, rice etc. These have a high Glycemic Load.
Once you become more educated about foods and the calories, fats and nutrients they contain it will all become easier for you. If you are a chef or you just like to cook, you will discover alternative methods of cooking that I guarantee will replace the old eating habits and taste good in a new and refreshing way.I'm not exactly a chef but I have experimented and have found delicious ways to cook that are completely healthy and low fat.

Furthermore, after doing this a while and reaching your fat loss goals, you will want to use this knowledge to your advantage to maintain a healthy, attractive body. You just won't have to restrict your calories as much and you will be eating smaller meals because your stomach will have shrunk.
