In this post, you’ll learn how to naturally activate faster fat loss.
If you want faster fat loss, shortcuts won’t help you. This article is not about shortcuts.
There are simple ways to accelerate fat loss each day, naturally.
Improved fat loss can help you prevent heart disease and remove the risks associated with heart health.
In this article, we’ll go over some of the powerful things you can do each day to stimulate faster fat loss.
But first, you’ll need to understand how fat loss works in the first place.
What is fat loss?
Fat loss happens when fats attached to adipose tissue are released into circulation for energy supply. Let me explain further.
The adipose tissue stores energy in the form of lipids. It also insulates and cushions the body.
You can find this tissue all over the body. It’s under the skin, around internal organs and muscles, and within the bone marrow.
Because of hormonal differences, males and females store this fat differently.
For men, more of this fat is stored around the mid-abdomen area. Hence, belly fat. Women, pack more of this fat in the buttocks and thighs.
How to activate faster fat loss
So what does all of this mean?
Faster fat loss means you burn these stored fats and break down the fat cells through increased metabolic rate.
Metabolism is the process our bodies convert the food we eat into energy.
When your metabolic rate is high, you’re able to convert food to energy faster. And that, in turn, helps you lose weight, feel refreshed and healthier
If you’re not increasing your metabolic rate, you won’t burn fat fast.
The good news is that there are simple things you can do each day to get faster fat loss.
Let’s look at a few of them.
1. Drink more water
One of the best ways to activate faster fat loss is to drink plenty of water.
Water activates the fat burning abilities that help get rid of fat.
A recent study in the Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research suggests that drinking plays a role in increases a thermogenic effect.
This effect helps to produce heat in the body increases metabolism.
The researchers observed 50 overweight female participants for eight weeks. The participants drank 500 ml of water, three times a day.
The finding showed a significant decrease in body weight, body mass index, and body composition.
Also, researchers in Switzerland reported a link between water and energy expenditure.
They found that drinking cold and room temperature water increases energy expenditure and enhances thermogenic effects.
All of this helps to increase fat loss.
2. Do more high-intensity exercises
Intense exercise helps to improve the fat loss process. Think high-intensity interval training (HIIT).
HIIT is a type of exercise that involves alternating short bursts of higher-intensity activity with lower-intensity activity for recovery or rest
During a HIIT workout, there is the production of lactic acid which helps to supplement the inadequate oxygen in the body.
Adrenaline is produced alongside which helps to move fats results in the burning of fats muscle build-up.
After HIIT, the body is still in full metabolism mode trying to replace lost nutrients.
All of these HIIT-induced changes in the body helps to increase fat burning and energy expenditure several hours after working out. And this, in turn, helps you lose belly fat.
One of the very first studies to examine the impact of HIIT and body composition was presented at the American College of Cardiology’s conference.
The study found that “patients who practiced HIIT lost more body fat, gained more lean muscle mass and trimmed more inches off their waists—all of which play a role in heart health.”
3. Stand more than you sit
When you sit, your body is at rest. Your metabolic rate is low. Standing increases the metabolic rate.
It’s a physical activity that requires you to support your body.
Indeed, standing instead of sitting can help you burn more calories and activate the fat loss process.
Estimates from the National Institutes of Health support shows you’re more likely to nearly double the number of calories you burn when you stand.
If you’re an average weight of 170 lb, here’s you are likely to burn:
- 134 calories sitting
- 206 calories standing
Moreover, choosing to stand more than sitting can also provide back pain relief, helping you to perform more advanced exercises to gain strength.
4. Get a good night sleep
If you’re compromising your sleep quality, your health ends up paying for it.
Poor sleep and sleep deprivation make you more vulnerable to diseases and bad decisions.
In one study of 12 men who were allowed to have only 4 hours of sleep.
This sleep deprivation caused them to eat an average of 559 more calories the next day compared to when they had eight hours of sleep.
Sleep deprivation leads to an increase in appetite which leads to making bad food choices.
In another study, researchers investigated the relationship between reduced sleep and weight gain in women. The researchers observed 60,000 non-obese nurses over 16 years.
The findings show that the nurses who slept five hours or less each night were 15 percent more likely to be obese than those who had at least seven hours of sleep.
Part of the reason is that you eat more calories begins of impaired activity in the part of the brain that helps you make the right choices.
If you’re having trouble sleeping, consider making little changes to help you sleep better at night.
For example, keep a regular sleep schedule or even adjust your sleeping position.
5. Drink green tea
Herbal tea has long had powerful health effects enjoyed by many cultures for several years.
It’s only in recent times that research is beginning to confirm some of these benefits.
Green tea comes from the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant. Unlike black tea, green tea is from the smaller-leafed variety of the plant native to China.
Studies have shown that drinking green tea increases the metabolic rate and boosts the fat-burning process.
