Burning The Fat Fast And Easy

Energy is used up only during hard work or daily exercise. Losing weight is based on two categories: they are energy in and energy out. Glucose, fat, and protein are the main sources for the burning process.

In this process, carbohydrates are stored in the form of glycogen in the body. Then, it breaks down into glucose during energy consumption. The major energy sources are fat and glucose. It is mostly obtained from food rich in carbohydrate and protein such as rice, potatoes, meat, beans and dairy products. Moreover, we obtain energy from carbohydrate foods instead of protein.

When hunger hits, wait 10 minutes before eating and see if it passes. Set attainable goals. Don't say, "I want to lose 50 pounds." Say, "I want to lose 5 pounds a month." Get enough sleep but not too much. Try to avoid sugar. Highly sweetened foods tend to make you crave more.
