All the same, in our more sedentary modern times, there are some things we can still do about weight problems by burning fat. For example, it's always a good idea to start the day with breakfast, particularly a protein rich breakfast, such as scrambled eggs on toast. Having a protein rich breakfast will fire up your system and give you a better chance of feeling full up for the rest of the day. Guidance suggests that you should try to eat something within an hour and a half of waking up. Similarly, eating on a regular basis throughout the day will help to keep your metabolism busy, raising your metabolism to digest it and burning fat for longer.If you do miss a meal, somewhat counter-intuitively you may find you actually decelerate your metabolic rate. Note though that if you do eat too late in the day you will store food as fat rather than burn it as energy to be used.
If we're talking about diet, one thing you can look at is eliminating what are known as "refined carbohydrates", which are those you tend to find in junk food, soft drinks, cakes, sweets, biscuits, etc. The energy from these types of carbs are absorbed quickly into your bloodstream and can cause your blood sugar levels to spike and crash, impacting our energy levels and your mood. On the other hand, slow burning carbs are a critical part of a healthy diet - you need to ensure you're getting your fill of veggies and whole fruits, brown rice and brown pasta, and wholegrain bread. Also, try to consume both protein and fat with every meal - they take longer to digest and therefore consume more calories when doing so.
One area that can often be overlooked is alcohol consumption. As hard as it may be, try to cut out all the empty carbohydrates that you take on when drinking alcohol by going dry for at least 2 weeks as a starter. This will give you a really good head start on burning fat, and help you control what you eat as well.
Finally, it's probably quite obvious, but increasing the amount of exercise you do is good for burning fat. You don't have to go overboard with exercise and can do as little as a couple of minutes of highly intense working out on some days each week, so long as you combine it with some interval training for an enduring fitness boost and resistance training to develop muscle.
