About a year and a half ago I pushed myself to do a 12 week fitness challenge after I had my daughter. Try as I might I just couldn’t seem to completely shift the baby weight after I had given birth. I am sure that many of you have your own reasons for wanting to lose weight and shift that body fat. I think the one thing we can agree on is that we want to do it to feel a whole lot healthier. Here are my suggestions on ways to help you burn that excess body fat in healthy ways.


Eat fewer calories than you burn

This one is really simple. If you want to shed that body fat, you need to be eating less than the amount of energy you are burning. Only then can your body start working on burning off the fat. Calorie counters are really helpful in keeping you on the right path here. And it is always worth checking food packaging labels. Sometimes I am surprised by the amount of calories in things.



This one goes without saying, but I wanted to put it in for the purists out there. One of the best ways to get fit and lose weight are to do exercise.Figure out what type of exercise works best for you. Maybe you love running away on the treadmill. Or maybe you would prefer to join a local sports team. This is perfect for socialising and getting fit. Or lastly, maybe you want to join exercise classes, or boot camp clubs.


Try natural fat blockers

You might have heard about Garcinia Cambogia. It is designed to “block fat” and prevent fat from building up. Sounds pretty ideal right? Well here are the specifics on how it works. Firstly, it will increase the levels of cortisone in your body. Cortisone is a hormone which fights against stomach and thigh fat. Secondly, it increases serotonin. Serotonin is another hormone. This one affects different things including you appetite. The higher your levels of serotonin in your body, the more full you will feel. It is 100% natural which sounds really good to me, as I don’t like to put synthetic things in my body. Visit this website for more information:


Eat smaller portions more often

Rather than having 3 meals a day, you can try eating 5-6 times instead. Doing this isn’t just great for helping your body burn fat more efficiently by increasing your metabolism. It also helps you to concentrate more and improves your mood (who gets grumpy when they are hungry?).


Watch what you eat

The trick to healthy eating is to enjoy a balanced diet. Cut out junk food. As good as that hamburger might be, you will regret it straight after. Try to include a good mix of fruit and veg in your diet too.
