3 Weight Loss Traps - How to Burn More Fat

More than half of weight loss programs fail. It is the cardio, the workout, the nutrition, or your bad metabolism? What is stopping you from burning fat and losing weight?

What factors sabotage your nutrition and exercise plan?

1) Nutrition compliance

Do you track your eating? If not, chances are you are eating worse than you think. No one wants to admit its their own fault, but take a look and see if you are eating right 90% of the time. Draw a grid of all your meals for a week and mark an X when you fail. Then see if that is more than 10% of the time. If it is, then you simply need more discipline on the nutrition.

2) Liquid Calories

Still drinking juice and soda? Those calories can add up fast. Knock them out of your program, eat whole fruits instead, and you'll be full faster and leaner.

3) Lack of planning

If your fridge is empty, your stomach will be too. Until you grab the first crappy food at the food court or vending machine. But that will ruin your fat loss plan. So shop, plan, and prepare. Spend 2 hours on an off day at the store and in the kitchen.

4) No variety in your workout program

Change your workout every 4 weeks to keep adding a new stimulus to your muscles and metabolism. Get it from a magazine or better yet, a professional trainer in person. Or look for a good program on the internet that changes regularly.

5) Get social support

Don't try and do this on your own. You need encouragement and motivation. Get a friend or family member with the same goals on your team. Get started together and you'll succeed.
