Secret For Fat Loss

If you are trying to loss weight, you must of heard this before "Eat less, exercise more". That’s the simple solution to anyone’s weight-loss questions. But if it were really that easy, more people would be in great shape.
The real secret to targeting fat loss in a specific area is through proper diet. I’m really sorry to let you down. You were probably expecting some mind blowing revelation on how to get six pack abs through some amazing 10 minute abs workout. If you were, then I guess this really is a revelation for you.

You cannot target fat loss through exercise. Read it again and again

 You cannot target fat loss through exercise. Doing situps is not going to give you six pack abs. You aren’t going to get “toned” arms or legs simply by doing leg or arm workouts.

The secret to “targeting” fat loss in the stomach area – DIET
The secret to “targeting” fat loss in the inner thigh area – DIET

The secret to getting a firm butt – DIET
The secret to getting toned arms – DIET
The secret to great looking legs – DIET

Do you see a pattern here? Sorry to say that, but no amount of exercise is going to make that body part look good if there is a layer of fat covering it up! Healthy eating combined with a calorie deficit is the only way to target fat loss. Fat loss is systemic – not localized.

To build muscle & lose fat, you need a variety of proteins, veggies, fruits, carbs, and healthy fats. Eating protein helps building & maintaining muscles.
To better explain this, take your typical arm workout. Maybe you are doing some curls in the hope to have “toned” arms. As you are lifting the weight, your bicep sends out a signal that it needs energy – fat and glycogen. This energy is used both for lifting the weight, and used to repair muscle tissue.

Whether you’re a man or a woman, the fastest way to burn fat faster is by lifting heavy weights. Not only do heavier weights activate more muscle fibers, they also increase your resting metabolism. In other words, when you lift heavy weights, you continue to burn calories at a higher rate, even when you’re doing nothing.

When your muscles send out this “I need fat” signal, your body releases all sorts of fat-burning hormones and chemicals into the blood stream. Within seconds and a couple of heart beats, these fat burning chemicals are dispersed throughout the entire body.

They start pulling fat from all over the place – from the fat in your midsection, to the fat on your fingers. It would be great if your muscles would just use the fat from the surrounding muscle, but that’s just not how it works.

I really despise the word “tone”. It’s another one of those misunderstood words used by the fitness industry. It was created to target women who didn’t want to get big and bulky through strength training.

Being toned means nothing more than having muscle and having low body fat. There is no exercise that accomplishes this by itself. Your goal should be to build muscle in the most efficient way possible, and then use proper nutrition to remove the fat covering it.
Stop wasting your time with crunches, leg lifts, or any other isolation exercise that doesn’t challenge you. Get in the gym and start lifting some weights, or do your strength training at home – just do it. Build that fat-burning muscle, and then focus on your diet.

If you don’t want to get bulky, then you have to watch what you eat. If you put on muscle but do nothing to decrease your body fat (diet), you are going to look bigger. However, if you get in the gym and do squats and other highly effective compound movements, and couple that with a great diet and a calorie deficit, you are going to start seeing the true potential of your body.
