How to Get Lean
2015 has just started, and as you look at yourself in the mirror, you may be unsatisfied with certain parts of your body. Perhaps you’ve tried dieting and exercising before but were left with the same excess fat in areas like the midsection and thighs. Cosmetic treatments like liposuction and tummy tuck surgery can safely improve these areas of your physique and provide lasting results. However, we’ve provided some helpful tips that can help you get leaner in the meantime.
Achieving a leaner, more muscular body starts from the inside out. For this reason, your bone health should be at the top of your list. Vitamin D not only keeps your bones strong, but it also helps prevent osteoporosis from developing as you age. The best way to get your daily dose of vitamin D is through a diet that includes eggs, salmon, and fish oil.
Ignore the “Fat Burning Zone”
While it’s been a hotly debated subject for years, there still aren’t enough facts to prove whether the fat burning zone does or doesn’t exist. Instead of worrying about warming your body up for 20 minutes before beginning your regimen, focus on performing high intensity exercises that begin with and end with a 10-minute cardio cool down.
Choose the Path of “More” Resistance
Studies have proven time and time again that the plateau effect exists. In other words, to burn more fat tissue during your workouts, always strive to increase resistance when possible. This helps to build more muscle and make you stronger in the process of burning fat.
