The festive season is coming up, which means lots of parties and naughty foods. While you can hardly avoid the delicious food and drink, you can shape up so you feel much less guilty about it when the time comes. You’ll look incredible in your party dress and still be able to enjoy a cocktail!
Here’s how you can say goodbye to excess fat fast:
Fill Up On Fat Burning Foods
Start filling up on fat burning foods, rather than foods that don’t fill you up. Unfortunately, Christmas cookies aren’t fat burning foods. The best foods for burning fats are often healthy fats themselves! This means getting your fill of things like nuts, seeds, and avocado. Vegetables are great too, especially low calorie veggies like celery. Just bear in mind many healthy foods can still be high calorie, so it’s a good idea to keep track of them to ensure you’re not going overboard.
Make Sure You’re In A Deficit
As mentioned above, you need to be in a deficit to make sure you’re losing excess fat. This is why it’s very helpful to track your foods. You don’t want to be in too much of a deficit, as this can stunt your metabolism and mess things up for you in the long run. You need to start slowly at first. Only when your progress stops should you have more of a deficit. Bear in mind you should never go too low so you’re starved. You need nutrients and food to function! Starving yourself may get short term results, but it certainly won’t get results in the long run. Also, just because you need to be in a deficit, doesn’t mean you should fill your diet with nothing but chocolate. Make sure you’re eating a healthy, balanced diet. An app can help you to track things properly.
HIIT stands for high intensity interval training, and it’s perfect for burning fat. 2 or 3 sessions of this a week can really rev up your metabolism and give you incredible results. The best thing about HIIT is that it’s usually 20-30 minutes. Great for those who are short on time. You can also tailor your HIIT plan to suit you. You can do it on a bike, outside, on the stepper – whatever you like.

Drink Lots Of Water
Water is key to making sure you’re shedding that fat. You should be getting at least 2 litres a day. Up to 4 litres could supercharge your efforts. Not only that, water will keep you fuller for longer. It can even help you to feel more energized!
Get Your Rest
Resting is an essential part of any fat loss program. If you’re hitting it too hard, you might stop burning fat as a way for your body to protect itself. You’ll put yourself under too much stress. Make sure you’re getting at least 1 full rest day from working out a week, and that your sleep is up to scratch.
