The Top 5 Fat Burners

I want to share with you my top 5 fat burners of all time.  Let’s get right to it…here are 5 ways to make this a great fat-burning day…

1) Do Something You Love

If you are a beginner and you hate the gym, just do something you love! Don’t make your healthy lifestyle a prison sentence. Enjoy what you eat and do. Just don’t eat garbage and don’t look at exercise as punishment.

2) Strength Training

A very, very recent study (published in the May issue of the Journal of Applied Physiology 102:1 767, 2007) showed that resistance training boosts your metabolism by 10% and increases fat burning by 100%!

3) Interval Training

The latest research from Australia showed a more weight loss from interval training than from long, slow cardio. In fact, the long, slow cardio group didn’t lose any weight. AND – this study was done in women…so yes, Turbulence Training works for women. Strength training and interval training are the 1-2 punch that blowtorch fat off your body.

4) Eat 6 Small Meals of Whole, Natural Foods

Fruits and vegetables, protein, nuts, and healthy fats. It’s that simple. Don’t spend another dollar on “the latest diet”. You ALREADY KNOW what to do!

5) Avoid Booze, Sugar, Trans-Fats, & Inactivity

Yeah, I know, real “secrets” here, CB. “Thanks”, you’re thinking sarcastically. Listen, sometimes we just need the motivation. Maybe there is a donut within reach, or you’re thinking about watching the tube instead of exercising, or you’ve got a cookie in one hand and an apple in the other.

This concludes my list of my favorite top 5 fat burners.  Let this be a simple reminder to make the right choice. Everything you do takes you closer to OR away from fat loss,
