One of the best ways to ensure you burn maximum fat is to get it done first thing in the morning. A common fat loss tip people often give out is just this – exercise in the morning to burn more fat. Does exercising in the morning burn more calories? Unfortunately there is no scientific evidence to prove that exercising in the morning burns more calories but it may increase your fat loss.
How? Because it guarantees that you’ll get your workout done! If you are having trouble losing weight, sticking to your diet, and getting in all your exercise sessions then working out first thing in the morning could be just the thing for you.
In a recent episode of Naked Nutrition Radio and the guest was behavior change expert Kara Mohr. Kara and her husband Chris Mohr hold exercise bootcamp for women in Louisville, KY at 5:30 in the morning. Why? They call it the “No Excuse Hour”. You don’t have any excuses not to be there and not to do it. My friend and Men’s Health Expert Bill Hartman exercises at 4:00am to ensure that he gets his workout in - No Excuses. Bill runs two PT clinics, a gym, and is a family man. He has every reason to have excuses but he makes the time.
Success coach Brian Tracy always says that if you to be successful just find successful people and do what they are doing. If you are having trouble getting your workout sessions in because you day is too busy. Follow the example of these successful people and embrace the No Excuse Hour. You will feel invigorated, your metabolism will be blasting at its highest level, and you’ll burn more fat.
The second important piece to the puzzle is diet. You need rock solid fat loss nutrition first thing in the morning to fuel your day. One important factor for many people (especially if they are exercising in the morning as well) is time. That is why I recommend you use a nutrition packed shake to get fueled and get going with your day. Here is a sample of the kind of shake that you should be making to burn maximum fat.
Add to a blender: walnuts, a greens supplement (such as Emerald Balance or Superfood), protein powder, and frozen blueberries. Take 2-3 grams of fish oil while drinking this shake and you’ll be ready to go. This shake contains low impact carbs, a blend of essential and heart healthy fats, antioxidant, vitamins, and minerals. You could not find a better way to start your day and start burning fat.
You need to decide. Are you going to starting losing weight tomorrow morning? Are you going to take advantage of the “no excuse hour”? Are you going to start your day with a fat burning breakfast or coffee and a bagel like the rest of the country? Jumpstart your fat loss first thing in the morning and you will reap the benefits throughout the day.
