How to Lose Fat

That's what most of us want to do right? We want to lose all that unwanted fat weight that stubbornly clings to us. Especially in our thighs, our tummies, and our buttocks. We've been told all our lives, "Eat less, exercise more." And we're doing that, with no success. Why? What do we really need to get rid of that bulge?

1) Eat more often.
This one is so hard for women to embrace because we've been brainwashed our entire lives to do just the opposite. Smaller meals throughout the day revs the metabolism. Two or three meals a day starves the body, telling it to store food as fat. When you feed it more often with smaller meals, it burns what you bring in.

2) Eat the right stuff.
Easier said than done, right? Meats, vegetables, whole grains, and fruits. When you're shopping at the grocery store stay on the outside perimeter. That's where all the non-processed foods are. Non-processed foods take longer for the body to break down, and therefore do not turn into fat as easily.

3) Eat protein and carbs with every meal.
Chicken and brown rice. Steak and green beans. Tuna and a sweet potato. Combine a lean protein with a complex carbohydrate and you give the body what it needs to work efficiently.

4) Slow burn cardiovascular exercise first thing in the morning.
This tip can't be emphasized enough. A slow burn cardio exercise first thing in the morning before you eat strips fat off! Go for a 30 minute walk. Ride your bike at a slow pace. Don't overdo it or you'll burn muscle and wind up looking and feeling weak.

5) Patience.
It takes a little time for your body to stop holding on to precious fat that it thinks it needs. Give it a little time to figure out that it won't need it anymore. Remember that it likely took you years to gain that fat, so give yourself at least a few months to start to see significant progress losing it.
