The ultimate fitness goal for most people is to lose any unwanted fat, gain muscle, and maintain a healthier lifestyle. Also, for most people, that’s easier said than done! Full motivation and dedication is needed to see all of these goals through.
You may find yourself getting stuck at that “last” 5-10 pounds you have been struggling to lose. It doesn’t necessarily matter what your exact goal is, whether you are trying to get in shape for a bodybuilding contest or just wanting to feel comfortable in your own skin, achieving fat loss can be a struggle! So the question is how much body fat should be lost to highlight your desired areas and how to do that!
Being able to maintain a consistent workout routine as well as gradually increasing your weights and aerobics is when fat starts to melt off. If you are overweight, it is best for you to start off with a lower intensity workout to start the fat burning process. You don’t want to place your body under a lot of stress, so slowly work yourself into a new and more intense routine!

Cutting back on foods that are high in fat, simple carbs, and sugars will make a huge difference! Remember, not all fat is bad fat, so good fats such as omega-3, omega-6 fatty acids are actually going to help your burn fat by increasing your metabolic function (in moderation). It is important to be consuming the right types of fat and complex carbs while putting together your daily meal!

If I haven’t said it enough, I am going to say it again: it is extremely important for your body to stay hydrated through the day! You should be drinking about a gallon of water a day to keep your kidneys hydrated as well as keep that fat burning process flowing, though this amount varies depending on your level of physical activity.
Most high intensity interval training is for those who are more experienced in the realm of fitness, as you’re going to get that heart rate way up! This method is extremely effective for losing fat when incorporated into a weekly workout routine - just make sure you account for recovery time!
Get that cardio in after a workout or even first thing in the morning to stimulate an increase of fat loss. There are so many new and fun ways to incorporate cardio into your workout, such as dancing, water aerobics, or even a cycling class.
The more you exercise the more you will find what interests you, makes your body feel amazing, and most importantly, see the results you are working towards!
