    Burn 3x More Fat With These 4 Simple Steps

    If you are new to bodybuilding or weight loss, then I am hoping to save you a lot of time and frustration with this article. You want to get leaner, you want to start seeing more vascularity in your arms and when you are pumped, you want to see all that great definition like those guys and girls on BodySpace or the magazines.

    After reading this article and applying these four steps, you will get on your way to a leaner, healthier and sexier physique a lot quicker. This will still take time and patience, but this will save you a lot of thought and aggravation in the long run. You can start expecting results in a few weeks and that will keep you motivated to keep going long after you meet your initial fitness goals.


    1. Cardio First Thing In The Morning Before Breakfast.

      This is one that you can get over and done with literally as soon as you step out of bed. You get up, get a glass of water, and either hit the treadmill, go on a power walk, or hit a bike. No breakfast, no small bite beforehand, you do not take in a single calorie until you do at least 20 minutes of cardio first.

    Some people wake up at 4:00am just to do their cardio. Then later in the day they do their weightlifting routine. Others do their cardio before or after their workout routine.

      The reasoning behind this is when you do the cardio without eating, your body needs to tap into something for energy. In an aerobic state, your body will go straight to your fat storage. This results in more fat loss as opposed to doing cardio in the middle of the day or in the evening. If you can't do it first thing in the morning, then at least do it after your weight training.

      When you workout, your body will use up the energy it has so when you do cardio, it will have to resort to the fat storage. You will burn more though if you do it in the morning.

    2. Drop Carbs The Last 2 Meals Of The Day.

      Your body needs to burn more calories than it takes in order to lose weight. Another way to do that is to drop carbs for the final two meals of the day. You need the carbs provided in the first 3-4 meals because they will provide you with energy that you need to take care of your daily tasks.

      Once your day starts coming to an end, you will be relaxing more and getting ready for bed. Your body will get more in a relaxed state and will not process the carbs for energy, but rather it will store them as body fat to be used for energy later. Dropping those last servings of carbs will prevent that storage and help you get leaner throughout the weeks.

      Now you can not drop your protein because your muscles need the protein all day long. You can also keep all of your veggies in every meal as well. Drop your breads, rice, pasta, potatoes, etc. from your final couple of meals.

    3. Take A Fat Burner.

      Now I want to mention at the very beginning that if you are not training as hard as you should and if you are not eating properly every day consistently, then buying a fat burner will be a waste of your money. Fat burners are supplements. Therefore they supplement a proper training and nutrition program. Also, they cannot be taken excessively as they won't work and can potentially be harmful.

      Taking them too much means your body will adapt to them and they won't work for you anymore as well. With all that said, if you have done everything you can do in the gym and in the kitchen, then a fat burner supplement could be the final thing you need to help you melt all that body fat off.
