Burn Fat Using These Simple Strategies

By: Mike Selcsum

How do you know if you need to lose fat? The best way is by finding out what percentage of your total body mass is fatty tissue. Be wary of the tables that provide ideal weights for men and women of various heights. Rarely do these tables take body types or age into account.

Here are different routines for muscle building and fat burning for you to build muscle mass and burn fat effectively.

1. Exercise as soon as you wake up

What works well are exercise routines every morning. It is best to start fat burning by exercising first thing in the morning.

Of course, the body naturally sheds fat from the areas of greater excess. But it can shed off more when done in the morning. This is because fats are the only things being burned in the morning. The energy from carbohydrates eaten from last night's meal have already been used up during sleep.

Usually, 30 minutes of exercise in the morning can burn fats by as much as 600 calories. That is almost losing the fats you have accumulated by drinking milk shake and hamburger from last night's meal.

2. Eat small meals at frequent intervals

Rats trained to eat their entire daily ration in one to two hours gained more weight than rats that nibbled at their food whenever they were hungry. Eating just one giant meal increases the rate at which food is converted into fat by twenty-five times.

Experts say that this applies to humans as well. In fact, they contend that when you eat might be as important as what you eat.

3. Add pleasurable activities to your schedule

Just an extra half-hour of walking, for example, can burn off five pounds a year. Try to think in terms of the long haul and develop eating and exercise habits that can keep you in shape for months, years, and decades to come. This perspective can help you get over one of the very common disappointments of the first weeks of dieting.

These are just some of the routines for muscle building and fat burning. You can count on them if you really want to build muscle mass and shed off excess fats.
