Getting To Single Digit Body Fat

Published by

About 5 years ago I learned the simple techniques to lose weight without dieting and get down to a low body fat percentage. It is amazingly easy and there is no calorie counting. But for the last year now, I have been hoping to get my body fat down to the single digits, and I have found that it is much easier than you might think. After ages of searching, one day I found the right diet and supplements for me. By having a balanced diet, choosing the right type of food, counting calories, proper workout and effective supplements, I’m able to get to those single digits that turn heads on the beach. And I feel better than I ever have in my life. By following these basic steps, I’ve shredded fat easily and fast.

Rule #1: Cut calories

In order to lose a pound of fat (450 grams), you need to burn 3500 calories. You can easily do this by setting up a measurable goal and cutting back 500 calories from your usual diet, and you will easily lose 1 pound of fat per week. If you want to lose more than a pound a week, you should cut more than 500 calories from your usual diet. But for safer weight loss you should not lose more than 2 pounds a week and you should not have a diet below 1200 calories. You need these calories as energy for your body processes such as breathing, walking, sleeping, and such.

Here is a simple method to start with. Go on the internet and search for a BMR calculator. Be sure to find one that takes into account your activity schedule. Fill out the form, it is quite easy. Height, weight, age, a rating of the amount of activities that you participate in, and then hit “calculate” it will give you the amount of calories that you are now burning per day. Take that number and subtract 500. And that is your daily calorie target to lose 1lb. (450 Grams) per week.belly-fat
Rule #2: Increase your protein intake

You should increase your protein intake to 1.5 grams per pound of your body weight. There are two main reasons why you should increase your protein. These are:

1. Protein has thermogenic effect. It burns more calories than carbohydrates and fat. So, if you consume more protein, your body requires more energy to digest and absorb the protein from the food you consume.

2. Protein has satiety effect. If you eat more protein, you will feel fuller. Thus, it lowers your appetite and prevents you from eating more.

Rule #3: Decrease your carbohydrate intake

You should decrease your carbohydrate intake to make your body a fat burning machine. Your body goes into a state of ketosis, and starts burning your stored fat for energy.  Additionally, having low carbohydrates in your diet will control your appetite.

Rule #4: Choose your fat wisely

You don’t need to avoid fat totally by removing fat from your diet. Low fat diets or no fat diets are fad diets. They don’t help in weight loss. Fat is important! Fat plays an important role for your muscle. However, you should choose the right source of fat. Avoid unhealthy fat such as saturated fats and trans fat. Choose healthy sources of fat such as olives, coconut oil, and avocados.

Rule #5: Increase your water intake

Water itself does not have any weight loss effect. But, water helps to make one feel fuller. Water is also needed to clean your system out, rinses out excess salts, and helps your body’s temperature regulation system.  Sometimes, when you are thirsty, your body will seek for water in the form of hunger. That gives you a signal that you need food, but what you really need is water to quench your thirst. When you feel hungry, drink first. If you don’t feel hungry anymore, it means that you were only thirsty.

Additional Supplements

Another thing that helped me in burning fat is the use of protein powder and other weight loss supplements from Supps R Us.

These helped me reduce my appetite and cravings and it made me more energetic during my workout routines.

Additional Tip

A trick that I learned a long time ago, which is referred to as intermittent fasting, is to avoid breakfast and try and push your first meal of the day, at least till noon. This works wonder at burning fat. Because through the night, after your digestive system is finished working, it will start to burn fat and work on ridding your body of toxins. If you are constantly eating, then your body never really gets a chance to work on repairing itself. As it is spending most of its resources on digestion.
