The Basics of Fast, Healthy Fat Loss

The Basics of Fast, Healthy Fat Loss

Here are the 3 most important ones that I was able to pick:

1. Clean, Natural Diet: A diet based around whole, natural, unprocessed foods is a must. The best ones consist of mainly lean proteins, good carbohydrates, and healthy fats.

2. Intense Strength Training: Regular strength/resistance training is incredibly effective at both burning off extra body fat and building/toning lean muscle tissue. If done properly, it can literally turn your body into a 24/7 fat-burning “machine” while also dramatically improving the way you look and feel.

3. Smart Cardio Exercise: Doing “smart” cardiovascular exercise several times per week is a proven way to burn calories and speed up fat loss, not to mention improve heart health. It’s easy to overdo cardio training but with the right strategies — such as high-intensity interval training (HIIT) — you can lose the fat without damaging lean muscle or hurting your metabolism.
So there you go: the “Big 3″ of fast, safe, and healthy weight loss. Do them all on a consistent basis and it’s almost impossible not to burn off the fat and get that lean, sexy body we all want.
