Your body is a machine, and it needs fuel to work and work efficiently. The reason that you may have gained weight is for a number of reasons, however, the most common reason is that you ate too many calories and did not burn them off. Now this can be for two different reasons, either it was due to the lack of movement (exercise) that you did not burn the calories, or your body’s metabolism may have been on the typical roller coaster style that most of us have grown up with.
You see, growing up, we all learned to eat 3 square meals per day. When you eat those three meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner, your body’s metabolism goes up and down like the roller coaster mentioned above. But, if you eat smaller meals more often, let’s say 5 to 6 times per day, your metabolism will be much more efficient and the calories you burn will be more consistent. But that is not the only key to how to burn fat quickly.
The second part of how to burn fat quickly is to eat the right foods that will supplement your metabolism as well as provide you with the nourishment your body needs. It seems there are a lot of fad diets out there, the Atkins diet, the South Beach Diet, etc. that only support the idea of one type of food group (protein) and limiting the other very important part, carbohydrates.
When you eat good carbohydrates (whole wheat breads, pastas, fruits), you keep your body’s metabolism in high speed. Your body will burn off those calories in the form of energy and take all of the fats and protein calories along with it. A balanced meal will help to burn fat quickly because it is the natural way to eat. Combine a healthy, balanced diet with exercise 3 days a week for 15 – 20 minutes a day, and you have the recipe for success!
