Best Fat Burning Tips for Women

I was a college athlete, so fitness was always a huge part of my life. After I graduated I spent the next few years shunning most forms of exercise, rationalising that I deserved a break. Fast forward a few years and two kids later and I found myself fifty pounds overweight. I tried a handful of diets and began and quit a variety of exercise regimes. When it became clear that I would never lose weight this way I realised it was time to make a lifestyle change.

In six months I went down seven dress sizes. So, what was different this time? Why was I finally successful? I dumped fad diets and dedicated myself to eating healthy and exercising consistently. Suddenly I was a fat-burning furnace.

Below are some fat-burning tips to help you lose the weight you have been wanting to shed:

Accelerated Fat Burning

There are plenty of fast weight-loss diets and fads out there and while some may work right away, they only last a short amount of time. For example, low-carb and low-calorie diets promise easy and quick weight loss. It always seems true at first, but our body just puts the pounds back on and even more, than we had to begin with. These diets do NOT work and are not meant for the human body.

What so many of us do not realise is how easy it is to find the right foods for our individual needs. Foods that we have been told for decades are bad for us! I will start by telling you that what we need to focus on are fats. I know all of us have probably been told how bad they are for you. Well, we have been told wrong way too long. Good fats …

The Truth Behind Fat Burners

I find it astonishing the amount of over-the-counter medicines we have to choose from when browsing the shelves. The different variations and methods of packaging is truly bewildering, and can easily result in combining two apparently different products with the same essential ingredients. I work as a paramedic. I have been warned to check the labels on cold medicines from multiple sources when treating a patient. Sometimes, unintentional overdoses occur this way. Acetaminophen alone has the power to decimate the liver if taken in large enough doses, which I’m told is a very painful, insufferable demise.

Take analgesic preparations for a moment (pain relievers). Usually, there is an entire aisle devoted to these. They are lined up all the way across and on every level. The sheer irony of this is that there is about four medicines involved. Acetaminophen, ibuprofen, naproxen sodium, and aspirin. They are combined in every conceivable …

Do you want to burn more fat? Adding a little chilli powder to your diet could help. A new study shows that a compound found in chilli peppers could promote fat loss – naturally.

Chili peppers for fat burning? This idea isn’t new. Studies show that a component in chilli peppers called capsaicin can fire up the metabolic furnaces – but capsaicin isn’t the only ingredient in chilli compounds that boosts fat burning. Researchers have discovered that a different chilli compound called dihydrocapsiate or DCT also stimulates the breakdown of fat.

Researchers put this concept to the test by placing 34 women and women on a low-calorie meal replacement liquid for 28 days. Some of them received three and some received nine milligrams of a DCT supplement, while the rest received a placebo. How did they fare? After having their oxygen and carbon dioxide levels when they inhaled and exhaled, …
