5 Easy Tips to Improve Your Fat Loss in 2017

fat burning tips
So the New Year is here, and as every January, you’ve probably made some New Year resolutions.  But, as January ends, usually people start losing their motivation. This year, I’m going to give you 5 easy tips to improve your fat loss so that you can ramp up your motivation and you can find success with those health and fitness resolutions.  If you implement these 5 easy tips, I guarantee you’ll find more success with your health, fitness and fat loss journey. But, don’t just read these 5 tips, implement them!  Pablo Picasso said, “Action is the foundational key to all success.” 

Tip 1: Eat More Cucumber


Cumber is a high water content, low calorie food.  You can snack on it, hydrate, and do it all without adding many more calories to your day.  A cup of cucumber (sliced) is less than 20 calories and it packs over 150 mg of potassium.  I like adding a splash of lemon, some sea salt and spice for flavor.  It makes a great snack, especially when you’re craving something crunchy.

Tip 2: Get Stronger

The stronger you get for a one rep max (absolute strength), the more weight you’ll be able to use in higher rep ranges in which you can really stress your metabolic processes. Workout templates designed to tax your metabolic processes ignite the after burn effect a.k.a EPOC (excess post-exercise oxygen consumption). This is one of the powerful components in the 12 Day Fat X Program  and in the Free Bonus Fat X 101 Workouts.  

Maximizing strength is often overlooked but it's essential in optimally taxing your metabolic processes.  Taxing your metabolic processes sufficiently is vital in being able to raise your BMR (basal metabolic rate). The higher your BMR, the more calories you’ll burn outside of the gym.


Tip 3: Go Outdoors

The best way to get vitamin D is via sun exposure.  Vitamin D is essential for several functions in the body including, but not limited to modulation of cell growth, neuromuscular and immune function, and reduction of inflammation.  A vitamin D deficiency has also been associated with depression.  Let’s face it, we all feel better when we get some sunshine! 

Tip 4: Eat Standing

This is probably my most controversial tip that I’ve ever given out.  A while back, I was actually laughed at for giving the tip to a few on a weight loss forum.  I then challenged them to try it for a week, and then, I told them they could laugh all they wanted.  Well, let’s just say the challenge shut them the fuck up.  When I give out a tip, I’m not just talking out of my ass.  I’ve tried the tip.  I’ve experimented with it, and, only if it actually works do I put it out for other people to try.  

Tip 5: Learn Different Workout/Exercise Methods

"You must understand that there is more than one path to the top of the mountain."
- Miyamoto Musashi  

When I get a new client that has come to me because of hitting a plateau, I’ll explain to them that it’s only a road block.  I’ll research the methods they’ve been using, and then work on a workout program that fills in any gaps, strengthens their strengths and we find a way to go around that road block/plateau. The change in path is usually mentally motivating, and the change in path also gives overworked areas of their body (tendons, muscles, bones, joints) a much needed break.  


Those are 5 easy tips that will improve you fat loss and fitness in 2017!  Get on them.  If you need help, feel free to contact me.
