If you want to reduce fat fast then you need to be adhering to the correct healthy weight loss eating plan. The correct nutrition is vital, of course exercise is also important but when it comes down to it – NUTRITION IS THE KEY.
Some people don’t really know what healthy eating means let alone how to do it. There is such a wide variety of often conflicting advice out there and with all the low carb, low fat diets that have been touted as miracle cures for your over-inflated waistline we sometimes don’t know where to turn. Here we will show you where!
The first thing you will notice when you read through the 3 habits outlined here is how straightforward they are – you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to understand them. You most not get the wrong impression though, just because they are straight-forward doesn’t mean they haven’t been thoroughly researched!
If you think that you only need to think about one thing to lose weight; calorie counting, then you are wide of the mark. There is more to eating well if you want to achieve optimal health, performance and body composition.
What you are eating, how much and when you are eating are all of equal importance when designing your weight loss eating plan. If you pay attention to all three of these things you will be well ahead of the chasing pack when it comes to losing stubborn fat. Now with that said, I offer you the follow 3 habits that will help you reduce fat fast…
The 1st Essential Weight Loss Habit: Eat every 2-3 hours.
If you are like most people you probably eat three meals a day but if you want to maximize your weight loss you want to change that old habit. Research has demonstrated that eating regularly (every 2-3 hours) can be one of the most powerful changes you make to your weight loss eating plan. Eating every 2-3 hours helps stimulate your metabolism whilst balancing blood sugar – a key in reducing stubborn fat.
So, eating every 3 hours will equate to approximately 5 meals each and every day depending on how long you are awake for. How big should each of those meals be? Shouldn’t they just be snacks otherwise I’ll eat way too much!!!?
Listen, think of each meal as simply a feeding opportunity – if you integrate the correct types of food into your feeding opportunities and in the right quantities you will be set up for maximum weight loss. Each feeding opportunity is an opportunity to make your body better, or worse so eat wisely!
Oh and by the way – have you heard that nasty rumor that you shouldn’t eat before bedtime? It’s simply not true – just keep in mind our rule of eating every 2-3 hours and adhere to the two other habits below – if it’s time to eat; EAT!
The 2nd Essential Weight Loss Habit: Eat complete lean protein at every feeding.
If you want to reduce fat fast you really need to be eating a source of lean protein at every feeding opportunity. Protein helps to stimulate your metabolism and improve muscle mass and recovery. Let’s make sure this is totally clear – you should be eating lean protein at EVERY meal, that means every 2-3 hours – breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything else in between – it’s time to transform your weight loss eating plan and remove belly fat!
The 3rd Essential Weight Loss Habit: Eat vegetables at very feeding opportunity.
Vegetables contain essential vitamins and minerals and important plant chemicals (phytochemicals) that are vital in order to maximize the physiological functioning of the body. By eating a wide variety of vegetables during your day helps your body to stay in pH balance.
Veggies provide an alkaline load to the blood whereas grains and proteins provide an acid load. Balancing the two results in greater bone strength and muscle mass – if your body is too acidic you will encounter a whole host of health problems such as low energy, poor digestion, aches and pains and disease whilst also hampering your weight loss efforts.
This is yet another reason to avoid a “starvation” type weight loss eating plan – fasting has a negative effect on the alkalinity of your body! So do your body a favor and be sure to include 1-2 servings of veggies with each feeding opportunity. You’ll now be eating vegetables every 2-3 hours, your mother would be happy!
Now use those habits religiously!
So there you have it – 3 straightforward and effective habits to improve your weight loss eating plan, maximize fat loss and remove belly fat. Now it is up to you to get into these new habits and stick with them. I wish you the best of luck.
