If you want to burn excess fat while building muscle mass, you'll need to do it the right way, as I'll explain here in this article on this very subject. Body fat and obesity are very common among people today.
And it is no wonder in the world of convenience and fast food. This makes the road to build muscle and burn fat that much harder.
There are also many new and improved ways to reduce unwanted visceral fat. The problem is that many just plain do not work. And some have actually been proven to do more harm than good. The best way to lose the fat is the natural and safe way. This is also the way to keep it off for good.
You Have to Work At It
It also takes discipline and time. Stop looking for the magic weight loss pill, because it simply does not exist. If there was such a thing everyone would be taking it and everyone would have a slim and trim body. Have you seen that happening?
Body fat is a lot more serious than people realize. Fat accumulates around the most critical organs of the body. It can cause many problems in these organs such as heart and coronary diseases, and even diabetes.
Take it in Steps
A program to build muscle and burn fat would include several essential natural steps to work. The first of course would be your diet and eating habits. Eat 5 - 6 smaller meals instead of 3 bigger ones. This speeds up your metabolism which in turn burns fat. These smaller meals should be around 300 - 500 calories.
This provides nourishment for your body at a more spaced out rate. You will also be less likely to overeat because you know that the next meal is coming soon.
If you are trying to build muscle and burn fat you will also want to pay attention to the foods that you are eating. Research has proved that foods that have high components of protein and low components of carbohydrates, sugar as well as saturated fats are effective for fighting body fat.
A diet of such foods like lean meats, vegetables and wholesome grains one must also avoid the kind of refined foods that have fine carbohydrates especially those with white sugar.
Exercise to Use Energy
The next important step is to make sure you burn all the energy you have consumed in the food you have eaten. A good, cardio workout routine in the gym is one way. Or you could get outdoors and go for a long run, or swim as many lengths of the pool as you can.
Whatever you do, it has to force your heart rate up to a faster rate and make your muscles work harder than normal and keep working for more than 20 minutes continuously. That's to insure the body keeps burning and using up blood sugar levels to force the body to take its energy from the fat store.
Be sure not to overdo things so your muscles don't get overloaded with lactic acid, which causes muscle burn. You can counter that to some extent by using a good anti-muscle-burn product such as that found in my Lactigo review (see my review by clicking that link).
Remember to Drink Water
You will also want to drink plenty of water and other fluids, do strength training, and cardio workouts to get your heart rate up. The main focus will be on burning calories.
So to sum up the plan to build muscle and burn fat you will want to eat smaller meals, more frequently. Drink plenty of fluids and work off the calories with strength training and cardio workouts. You must have a solid plan and stick with the plan.
There is no magic pill or shortcut. It is a hard road. But the rewards are definitely worth the effort. Have a body that will make everyone envious and be much healthier!
