8 Ways To Burn Fat Without Workout

Did you know that you can burn fat without working out? In fact, you are already burning them just by living. This is your resting metabolism (BMR) and is responsible for the vast majority of the burn and is determined by factors such as your weight, gender, height and age. The percentage of muscle mass also plays a role, because muscles consume – even when resting – more energy than other tissues such as fat.

1 – Eat more protein

Small changes in your diet can boost your BMR and help you burn more fat. For example, an increase in protein in your diet burns more calories, because the digestion of proteins in your body requires more energy than the digestion of carbohydrates or fats. It also fills more, making you feel full and less likely to overeat. Also, muscle mass appears to increase faster when you take protein before the workout. Most people need 1 gram per kilogram or body weight per day. Do you train a lot? Then you can increase it to 1.5 grams.

2 – Amino acids before you exercise

The right amino acids, so-called BCAAs, can increase fat loss and help maintain your muscle mass during weight loss. The group of BCAAs includes the amino acids leucine, valine and isoleucine. BCAAs are essential and cannot be produced by the body itself.

3 – Green tea

Research has shown that drinking green tea helps to consume more calories and burn more fat throughout the day. Green tea can also help improve insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance, which in turn contributes to the body’s ability to store calories as muscle tissue, not fat.

4 – Fish oil

So many health benefits of fish oil are now known that it is almost stupid not to take it as a supplement. Not only is it associated with an improvement in the condition of your heart and a slowdown in the growth of cancer cells, but it can also promote extra fat loss, without extra workout. It has been found that at 6 grams per day this can lead to a kilogram of weight loss (fat) in 2 weeks. If you do exercise more, fish oil promotes the amount of fat that is burned and can also improve cholesterol levels.

5 – Fasting intermittently

Fixed intermittent, or intermittent fasting, is emerging. You alternate long periods without food with a shorter period in which you eat enough. Increasing the time between meals (from 12 to even 24 hours) increases insulin sensitivity and burns more fat. In an experiment in which subjects fasted every other day for 22 days, fat burning increased and body fat decreased by 4%. You really don’t have to go to extremes to get results. Start with 12 to 16 hours per day. Not difficult if you don’t take anything until breakfast after dinner.

6 – Eat the biggest meal after your workout

After an intensive session with weights, your body has a huge need for carbohydrates and fiber to restore your glucose levels and to counteract the breakdown of muscle tissue. Now your insulin sensitivity is greatest and your metabolism at the highest level. Shift the largest meal to the right time and this will minimize unwanted fat build-up.

7 – Drink water immediately after getting up in the morning

When you wake up, you are always dehydrated to a greater or lesser degree. After all, you haven’t drunk since you fell asleep. Dehydration is a major risk of fat loss, because it slows down your metabolism to save water. Already 1% weight loss in moisture can affect your sports performance. Drink a large glass of water in the morning when you get up and try to drink as much as possible throughout the day. About 30-40 minutes after drinking a large glass of water, your metabolism increases by 30%. It couldn’t be simpler and cheaper!

8 – Vitamin B12

B12 helps your body in various ways to promote metabolism and fat burning. It is necessary for the conversion of fats and proteins into energy via the metabolism. Oxygen is required for the reactions required for this to take place in all cells. Vitamin B12, together with folic acid, ensures the production of red blood cells that transport oxygen from the lungs to every body cell. Without B12, red blood cells would be deformed and unable to efficiently transport oxygen, leading to a slower metabolism, declining energy levels and health problems.

5 Tips To Lose Weight Easily and Quickly

Do you want to lose 10 pounds and then preferably as quickly and easily as possible? Very recognizable, because I had that goal 2 months ago. And I did it! So if I manage, why wouldn’t you succeed? Very honestly, it was really not too bad! In the beginning I thought I would never succeed, but with a different mindset, a large dose of positivity and just persevering, and I lost 10 pounds. I would like to share my tips and tricks with you below.

#1 – Think healthy

First of all, I started to ‘think differently’. I have started to think differently about food, about my body and about healthy living. How do I maintain this I do as follows: with every bite I take I think I really need this bite of food or not? That has made me eat less and eat healthier.

Especially with bad things like chocolate, junk food, cakes and biscuits, I almost get blush on my lips when I think I need this bite or not? NO, of course I don’t need that bite with wrong foods, I think! It just makes me fatter and makes my body healthier! And by thinking that way, I have created this mind over the past few weeks during my goal to burn fat and lose 5 pounds quickly and easily without working out in the gym.

In the beginning it takes some getting used to, but afterwards it almost goes without saying and it even makes you feel proud if you don’t put all those wrong bites in your mouth. Give it a try, I did it too!

#2 – Read labels

A very important trick: read labels of all the foods you eat. Study the number of carbohydrates, fats, sugars and proteins on the labels. Then also read what is ‘junk’ in the product. You often come across complicated names of ingredients and when you look up what it is in Google, you are often scared to death!

By delving more into ingredients, additives and E-numbers, you learn to see that fresh products are much healthier. I really started looking at products in the supermarket with completely different eyes.

#3 – Keep your goal in mind

In my opinion, losing 5 kilos quickly and easily is really possible. During the weeks that I worked on it, I really kept that goal in mind. I made it a kind of challenge for myself. In the beginning that is quite difficult and you never think I can . But especially if you are busy for one or two weeks and you start to notice that your clothes are looser, then that tastes like more and you want to CONTINUE! So keep your 5-pound goal in mind, especially if things are going well, but also if you have a weak moment and you tend to eat a bar of chocolate.

#4 – Reward yourself

Reward yourself when you reach a milestone. For example if you are at half your 5 kilos and you have lost 2½ kilos. Then reward yourself with something nice. Not with food, but with something else, for example a day at the sauna or buying nice pants or a skirt that you have wanted to buy for a long time. Best chance that you can now even buy a size smaller! Reward yourself with sweet words, such as I have done well or I am beautiful as I am and I am doing good to lose 5 kilos . A positive mind is so important.

#5 – Not on the scales every day

A mistake I made in the beginning is that I was on the scales almost every day in my challenge to lose 5 kilos. DO NOT! Your weight can fluctuate quite a bit. That may have to do with your hormones, with the fact that you are in transition, with building muscles and with a different metabolism.

For example, if you have your period, most women are slightly heavier. But even if you have decided to exercise more, the weight of your trained muscles can make you slightly heavier. It is often temporary that you are just as heavy, but if you are just on the scale at that moment, you will get frustrated and disappointed.
