When losing weight, your goal should be to burn fat, not just lower the number on the scale.
But, how does one burn fat? Is the old saying to turn your fat into muscle the right way to go?
Not exactly. You see, fat is not turned into muscle, as the popular myth suggests. In short, everybody has fat cells underneath their skin. It’s these fat cells that actually hold the fat. When you create a calorie deficit, your fat cells release this fat into your bloodstream as FFA’s (Free Fatty Acid’s) and carry them to your muscle cells where they are “burned” for energy, thus coining the phrase “burning fat”.
Unfortunately, you can’t burn off fat by popping a few fat burning pills every day. Nor will the latest fad diet help you lose 20 pounds of fat overnight.
Like it or not, burning off body fat takes work. It takes careful dieting and calorie burning exercise. But, there’s a little more to it than that.
There are ways to get the most “bang for your buck” so to speak when trying to lose body fat. The following resources will teach you how to burn fat in the least amount of time and to help ensure you’re not wasting your time with inferior workouts and bad diet/exercise advice.
