Here are some more such steps you can take to cut up and lower your bodyfat. Coupled with controlling your calories, they can transform your metabolism and help you get shredded.
Increase YOur Protein
If you struggle with bodyfat, you should stress protein — more chicken, eggs, fish, beef, low-fat dairy and protein powders.
Protein exerts a greater metabolic-boosting effect than carbs or dietary fat. When calories drop, protein saves muscle, which helps keep the metabolism (calorie burning) elevated. Protein also helps to keep hunger down, which assists you in holding down your calories without losing your mind. Aim for 1 1∕2 grams per pound (0,450 kg) of bodyweight daily spread over five, six or even seven smaller meals.
Carnitine, BCAAs y Caffeine
The ideal time to cardio is after workouts, as research shows that you burn more fat when you do cardio after a weight workout. However, another good time to do cardio is in the morning before eating. That’s when sugar levels in the blood are at their lowest.
If you perform cardio when your blood sugar and insulin are low, fat burning is maximized.
But cardio can burn muscle, ths solution: Using 5 g of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), 1-3 g of carnitine and 200-400 milligrams of caffeine 30 minutes prior to cardio helps block muscle breakdown.
Carnitine Burns Fat
Creatine, the muscle-building supplement, can also aid fat loss. Creatine exerts an increase in metabolism when combined with weight training, to the tune of 100 calories a day. So, make sure you get in 3-5 g with your pre and postworkout meals.
Manipulate Your Carbs
Carbohydrates help retain muscle (and muscle is a metabolic booster), yet they can also stimulate fat storage. Following a modified low-carb diet — three consecutive days of consuming 100-125g a day, followed by a single day of taking in 300-400g, offers muscle support minus the fat storage.
When you eat fewer carbs and replace those carbs with protein, in general, the body ramps up fat-mobilizing enzymes and hormones resulting in accelerated fat loss. However, a prolonged period of lower carbs can leave your muscle looking flat, since glycogen (the storage form of carbs in muscle) pulls water into the muscle.
When you go low carb, the muscles get depleted of their glycogen and lose some water and therefore their fullness.
Garlic Helps To Burn Fat
Garlic stimulate adrenaline (epinephrine) and uncoupling proteins (UCPs). Adrenaline triggers fat breakdown; UCPs increase calorie burning. Garlic also controls cortisol levels, which can support muscle retention in a dieting bodybuilder. Use fresh bulbs in cooking.
