Everybody wants to lose fat.

And you know what? There's no shortage of people out there telling you how to do it.

The problem is that they usually tell you the same old stuff week in and week out. Eat right and exercise, eat right and exercise. Or it could be worse...follow this weird diet or take this dangerous supplement.

Those diet and supplement people are just crazy, if not liars and all the people telling you to eat right and exercise without any substance are just dumb.

So I'm going to give you a few very easy fat loss secrets that you can implement right now.

1) Never do another session of long, boring cardio again! I've had it with watching people leisurely strolling down the street or on the treadmill in hopes of losing fat. In their defense, it's not their fault because "experts" have been saying that's the only way for years. Well they were wrong...dead wrong. There's a better way to do your cardio and it's through interval training. All interval training really means is that you mix bouts of intense exercise with longer recovery periods. Take the treadmill for example. After you warm-up for 3-4 minutes, you would mix bouts of running at an intensity of 8 on a scale of 1 to 10 for 20 seconds with a recovery period of light jogging at an intensity of 4 for 60 seconds. Repeat that "cycle" 5-7 times, cool down for a few minutes and you're done.

Performing your cardio like this has been proven to burn more fat throughout the day than moderate intensity cardio. Not only that, but it gets you done with your workout a lot quicker, which I'm sure you'll enjoy.

2) Stick to full body exercises and full body workouts and steer clear of gym machines. By doing full body workouts and full body exercises like push-ups, squats, lunges and rows you're ensuring the maximum amount of muscle being used which means you'll burn the most fat throughout the day. Plus when you stick to things like bodyweight exercises and dumbbells, rather than gym machines, you're also ensuring the maximum amount of muscle is being used. You'll also get your workout over with much quicker, thus giving you more free time to spend with your family, friends or whatever you'd like to do when you're not working.

3) Plan your nutrition on the weekends. Weekends kill most people's fat loss goals. That's largely because you let loose a little too much and you don't plan out your meals like you do during the work week. All you have to do is stick as close as possible to your regular routine. If you eat the same breakfast at the same time throughout the week, continue doing so on the weekend. The same goes for snacks. Your brain loves routine, so give it what it wants and you'll continue losing fat, rather than stalling your fat loss because you don't eat right on the weekend.

There you go. There are 3 practical fat loss tips that you can implement right now and be on your fat loss journey.
