1. Speed up your metabolism   

Your ultimate goal is boost your metabolism. Ok now what is metabolism and how does it work ? Well it is the chemical engine that keeps you alive, every individual has a different metabolism, some may have fast metabolisms which helps to burn more calories and others may have slow metabolism which would tend have more calories leftover and stored as fat in your body. So how can we hike up our metabolism? Well your metabolism is determined by your age (the older you get the slower your metabolic rate), muscle mass (if you have good muscles you burn more calories), body size (the bigger you are, you burn more calories), temperature (when you exposed to cold weather you need to burn more calories to avoid your body temperature from falling down), physical activity ( the more active you are the more calories you burn) hormone imbalance ( this may slow down your metabolism and store more fat in your body which will cause the weight gain). It is important to build your lean body mass and stop starving yourself also consider physical activities as part of your daily routine.

2. Have a balanced diet.    

Prioritise nutrition based diet in your daily life such as vegetables, lean meats, fruits, healthy carbs and the list goes on. Healthy diet will also boost your metabolism which will helps to burn those extra fats from your body. It is very important to limit the intake of refined carbohydrates such as sugar, white bread, white pasta, white rice and replace it with rich in fibre which is “complex carb” such as whole grain, sweet potato, brown rice, oats, beans and don’t forget about the green, fill your diet with green vegetables, they are in low calories and high in micronutrients and fibre will keeps you fuller all day long.

3. Increase workout Intensity    

Focus on intensifying your workouts and building lean muscles to burn extra fats. Stay active on the real exercises that burns fat rather than engaging in mild activities such as walking, it takes lesser energy and its not effective in shredding calories. Focus on switching your workout plan in every two weeks and also engage your whole body in order to get the best results. Balance your workout with weight lifting and cardio,  focus on compound moves such as deadlifts, squats, kettlebell swings, lunches, chest press, shoulder press etc
