You may be wondering what you can do to make sure you burn the most fat within your workout. This can be challenging when you are really trying to get that fat off of those thighs and especially belly fat.
Well, I have something that I want you to try for about 2-4 weeks and you can see how you feel. Now I am all for a healthy breakfast and I stand by my statement that it is indeed the healthiest meal of the day.
When you start your day off with a healthy breakfast, at whatever time you choose to do this in the morning/afternoon, you set the stage for how your day will look as far as your diet is concerned.
If you miss breakfast you could eventually become so hungry throughout the later parts of the day that you will overeat.
Also, if you start your day off with a high carb breakfast, it will be the worst thing you can do to your body in the morning. There go your energy levels headed down the drain!
Twenty minutes later, you are yawning and feeling exhausted all over again, and ready to go back to bed. What happens next is the killer icing on the cake. The coffee crave is introduced. For some it’s the Pepsi crave that takes charge.
This becomes a vicious cycle of high highs and low lows for the remainder of the day. Fat cannot be burned through this terrible cycle of high sugar intake, crashing, and then back to sugar again.
There are two things I want you to do for the next 2-4 weeks.
- Exercise on an empty stomach
- Eat a healthy breakfast
I do want you to eat a breakfast but not until you have exercised on an empty belly in the morning. I want your body to pull from only fat as your energy source while you are working out.
Of course, you will need to hydrate yourself but as much as you can, do not eat anything until your workout is over. This means you might want to workout as soon as you wake up.
You do not have to go to a gym to do this. You can take a jog around the neighborhood, run stairs in your house, jog in place, do push-ups, burpees, or just something to get your heart rate levels up for about 30 minutes.
You should be in heart rate zone 3 or 4 the entire 30 minutes. This is very important! (See my article on https://healthyandbetter.com/how-to-burn-twice-the-fat-without-spending-more-time-working-out/)
When you are finished with your workout, I want you to eat a healthy breakfast with protein! Research has found that protein is the best food source that should be eaten for breakfast to burn the most fat throughout the day.
A great protein source is eggs. I personally eat eggs everyday. Some people are afraid to eat the yolk because of the talk of cholesterol but eggs have not been know to increase bad cholesterol, only good cholesterol.
If you are a diabetic, I suggest egg whites but other than that, EAT THE YOLK! That is where all the vitamins and nutrients are.
If you feel dizzy or sick from this, just slow down drink water and breathe correctly. It may be because you are not used to working out. Throw up and get over it if that is the case.
Most people who are just beginning only throw up once, and that’s pretty much a fact. If your dizziness or sickness is due to health problems, then listen to your body. If you have a medical condition and restrictions then talk to your doctor first.
I do want you to challenge yourself as best as you can. I hope to hear great results!
