20 Ways To Trick Fat
By: David Gluhareff
How many times have we all wanted to lose a few pounds or tighten here and firm up there? If we had a nickel for every time we said something like that or felt those ways when we looked into a mirror or tried on some clothes we would be able to afford to build our own gym!
I have looked back into my brains, library and condensed some material for you to help you trick fat and get it to leave and uncover your muscle tone!
[ 1 ]
Cut back on sugar!
If you consume too much sugar, it will easily be stored as fat!
[ 2 ]
Take walks or perform other types of cardiovascular activities at least twenty to thirty minutes per day!
Use the product Nitro-Octane by Serious Nutrition Solutions (SNS) to help increase aerobic capacity, muscle fullness, muscle pumps, endurance, vascularity and to aid in the exercise recovery process.

[ 3 ]
Do not park up-close to a store when you can park a little farther away to burn more calories walking in!
[ 4 ]
Take the steps instead of the elevator or the escalator!
This will help you to get your blood flowing and burn some extra fat!
[ 5 ]
Start a weight-training program on your own or with a trainer!
Try to start with a total body routine two to three times per week with 10-15 repetitions. Make sure to stretch often to improve you flexibility and improve circulation. Weight training will give you added muscle which will help you burn fat all day even when you are sleeping!
To help you keep your fat burning muscle use the product BCAA Supreme by Serious Nutrition Solutions (SNS). This will provide your muscles with the necessary building blocks to help keep your body from entering a catabolic state (the catabolic state is the state in which your body breaks down your hard earned muscle tissue)!

Drink more water!
Staying hydrated is important to having a healthy immune system, healthy skin, and a quicker responding, less cloudy brain.
[ 7 ]
Know The Facts.
Know what kind of calories you are eating by cooking and preparing your own meals instead of getting take-out or eating out! Who knows what you get when you eat at a buffet!
[ 8 ]
Cut back on fats.
Cut back on saturated fats such as fat from red meat and greasy or fried foods!
[ 9 ]
Don't Believe Everything You See.
Stop believing in FAT-FREE foods because most of them have hidden fats, which are synthetic or fake fats that actually hurt you more than ordinary saturated fat! These bad fats are called trans fatty fats or hydrogenated oils/fats!
[ 10 ]
Eat in moderation!
Too much of any food will be too much for your body to use for energy, so it will be stored as fat! Listen to you body and when it says it is satisfied it means it!
[ 11 ]
Drink more coffee or tea.
If caffeine does not bother you then have a little coffee or tea in the morning to give you a boost to get you started in your day!

When on vacation, try to exercise.
When on a vacation try to get some exercise each day to help you burn off those excess calories you consume and help you not feel so guilty when you get home.
[ 13 ]
Keep you carbs low, but your protein high!
You do not want to cut carbs out altogether, because you will need them for energy. Just choose from healthy complex carbs such as sweet potatoes, brown rice, whole grain bread, and veggie pastas! Choose from chicken, turkey, white pork, lean red meat, fish, and egg whites for your lean meat and low-fat protein choices.
If you want to try some low-carb protein bars try: Protein Diet Bars by Optimum Nutrition or the Carb Rite Low Carb Bars by Universal Nutrition. If you would like to try some low-carb protein powders try the Low Carb Lean Body Protein Packets or the Specialized Protein by Universal Nutrition.
[ 14 ]
When you eat out, go lean.
When you do have to eat out get a lean meat and veggie meal and no fries, smothered potatoes, fried chicken and gravy or greasy burgers!
[ 15 ]
Get 8 hours of rest per night. Take a nap if needed.
Make sure you get at least eight hours of rest per night and a half hour to an hour and a half nap in the afternoon preferably! This will keep you immune system strong and help you be stronger and livelier throughout your day!
[ 16 ]
Keep stress to a minimum so you will not gorge yourself with food to help you deal with stressors in your life!
[ 17 ]
Keep an active social life.
Keep an active social life so you will not stay around the house all the time and be tempted by food constantly.
[ 18 ]
Eat 5 - 6 small meals a day.
Always try to eat at least five to six small meals per day to help you keep your metabolism running high. Never miss meals because that would slow your metabolism down and you will store more fat!
[ 19 ]
Do yard work to burn extra calories.
Get out and do some good old yard work to burn some extra calories!
Buy a push mower instead of a riding mower to get some more exercise!
Or weed wack like Jay Cutler.

Make your healthiest meal, your last one!
Make your healthiest meal of your day the last one before bed, which is usually dinner. Try to have a lean white meat and a green vegetable! No carbs and no sugars would be a great idea since your body is slowing down for the day and you have that eight hours of sleep in front of you!
