24 Fat burning tips to assist you in losing weight


As a practitioner and someone who was overweight I tried all the tricks in the book and these are my tried and tested 24 Lifestyle fat burning tips, that can assist you to lose weight.

  1. Reduce your stress levels.
  2. Learn to meditate daily for 15 minutes before sunrise and/or at sunset.
  3. Get more sleep – sleep deprivation disrupts the body’s ability to process and control blood sugar and weight-related hormones like cortisol and thyroid hormone. This imbalance fuels fat storage.
  4. Portion control – reduce the size of your plate or eat 25% less food.
  5. Limit alcohol consumption – lowers your metabolism, increases appetite and can cause water retention.  Remember the body sees alcohol as a sugar and it contains 29kJ per ml.
  6. Watch out for sugar-free foods – they contain harmful sweeteners.
  7. Sorbitol and mannitol adds to kilojoule content of food. Opt for food that contains Xylitol, Stevia or sucralose as a sweetener.
  8. Dark chocolate please – high content of antioxidants.
  9. Eat less and more often.
  10. Add cinnamon to your oats in the morning – helps to regulate blood sugar.
  11. Emergency food : snack on boiled eggs, fruit, nuts and protein bars.
  12. Fast food – Nandos chicken and salad, Thai chicken and rice from Simply Asia or a low kilojoule slimmer’s meal from Woollies.
  13. Attitude is vital for successful for weight loss. The ultimate goal is a complete lifestyle adjustment and not just an interim plan to lose weight and then to return to all the old habits.
  14. Keep a food diary daily where the following information is recorded : day, time, food and liquids consumed, mood and company and how did you feel at specific meal times – this will help you to identify problem areas.
  15. Get support – tell your friends and colleagues.
  16. Plan your meals.
  17. Always have a glass of water in your hand at socials to keep your hand and mouth busy.
  18. Do not shop when you are hungry.
  19. Always eat at the same spot at home – not in the car, bed or in front of the TV.
  20. Eat slowly, chew food well and do not overeat – it takes 20 minutes for the brain to register that you are full.
  21. Eat when you are calm and concentrate on the taste and texture of the food.
  22. Lemon juice will lower GI/GL.
  23. Salt – no ordinary salt – Herbamore, Khoisan or Himalayan salts please – ordinary salt raises blood pressure and will raise cortisol levels and stimulate your appetite.
  24. Social events – if you are going to a function and you suspect that the food will be unhealthy or that you might eat late, eat at home before you go out and at the function, just eat something light.
