Switch on Your Natural Fat Burning Machine

If you want to drop some pounds or hold off the middle-age spread, there are easy ways to

help your body burn fat. Simple lifestyle changes can transform your body into a fat burning

machine. Speed up your metabolism by adjusting the way you eat, exercise and

even sleep.

Eating to Burn Fat

1. Consume fewer calories. Weight gain is usually caused by eating more calories than

you burn. You’ll save yourself a lot of money and frustration by accepting this simple

truth. Your metabolism naturally slows down with age so over time you need

to eat less and exercise more to avoid storing fat.

2. Eat breakfast. You can still enjoy a hearty breakfast. Your metabolism slows down

while you sleep so get it going again with a healthy feast. Oatmeal with cinnamon or

fruit yogurt and granola are both excellent breakfast choices.

3. Eat frequently. Eating often also speeds up your metabolism. Replace the usual

3 big meals per day with 4 or 5 smaller meals and snacks. Enjoy whole grains, fruits

and vegetables, and lean proteins. As an added benefit, you’ll feel full much of the

time so it’s easier to resist junk food.

4. Drink alcohol in moderation. Alcohol is a depressant that slows down your central

nervous system. You can still drink a glass of wine with dinner if you balance it out

with lots of water. Water aids digestion and gives your metabolism another modest

boost.

5. Be smart about using supplements. You’ve probably seen advertisements for

expensive fat loss supplements. Many of these products produce no significant effects

or contain caffeine that can make you jittery. Supplement claims are not evaluated by

the FDA, so be careful and let your physician know about any supplements you take.

Exercising to Burn Fat

1. Build up your muscle mass. Even seniors can increase their muscle mass with

weight training. It’s worthwhile because a pound of muscle burns more calories than a

pound of fat. If you’re new to weight training, start off gradually to avoid injury.

• If you prefer other activities, you can get similar benefits from movements that use your

own bodyweight for resistance like push-ups, crunches, and Pilates.

6. Vary your routine. Your body adapts to any familiar activity so you use up fewer

calories over time. Cross training will stimulate your body’s metabolism. Get off

the treadmill and take a dance class from time to time.

7. Do interval training. Interval training is another proven strategy for burning more

fat. Break up your morning jog with a few sprints. Jump rope for a couple of

minutes during low-impact aerobics. This way you train both your aerobic and

anaerobic energy systems so you lose more calories from fat.

Other Lifestyle Tips For Burning Fat

1. Sleep in a cool room. Get a full night’s sleep in a cool room. Your body processes

calories more efficiently when it gets 6 to 8 hours of slumber. Studies show that room

temperatures of about 60 to 65 degrees can help you fall asleep faster and burn more

calories per hour.

8. Start fidgeting. On average, people who fidget are thinner than those who don’t. As

long as you’re not distracting others, swing your leg and shift around. Even better, get

up during TV commercials to do some lunges and take the stairs whenever

you can.

9. See your doctor. If you need more help, talk with your doctor. Testing and treatment

is available for many conditions that make it harder to lose weight such as

hypothyroidism. Your doctor can also advise you on dieting and exercising safely.

Daily activities can trigger your body to burn fat more effectively. With these simple lifestyle

choices, you can reduce your body fat and stay lean and healthy for life!
