2 Lift weights

Resistance training is another effective way to burn fat fast and in combination with cardio, it is even more effective. Not only will it add definition to your form, it also increases the amount of calories you burn, even when you are idle. After weight training, your muscles need to energy to repair, so your metabolism is raised during this time.

3 Eat small and regular

If you eat big portions of food during the day, you are giving your body more fuel than it needs at one time. This results in excess fuel being stored as fat as part of the bodies starvation protection mode. However, if you eat small and regular meals, you are providing your body with manageable amounts of energy that your body uses immediately, avoiding any need to store fat.

4 Clean up your diet

Eating small and regular meals will only be beneficial if what you are eating is natural and quality ingredients. Reduce your intake of sugary, fatty and processed foods. Make more homemade meals that include plenty of vegetables, complex carbs, healthy fats and lean proteins. My advice would be to look up some healthy eating recipes online, so you have plenty of options to focus on.

5 Remain hydrated

Dehydration slows the fat burning process right down. So it pays to remain topped up with water throughout the day. As well as drinking plenty of fresh water, add some green tea to your liquid diet. Green tea is known to have many health benefits, one of which being that it raises your metabolic rate.

6 Manage stress

Stress can lead to overeating and an increase in fat-storing hormones. Take measures to ensure your stress levels remain low, like going for a long walk, practising yoga or having a soak in the tub.

If you want to lose some pounds before summer, it will require effort and commitment. Follow these tips and you will be on your way to your best looking body.
