Burning fat primarily comes down to maintaining a calorie deficit so your body has to rely on fat storage for fuel. Your body burns between 1,500 and 2,500 calories a day just by being alive, but there's a lot you can do to increase that number.

With growing rates of obesity and weight-related health diseases in the United States, people are trying to take action. Recent studies show that 38 percent of people have tried to lose weight between three and 10 times.

Unfortunately, many people give up when they don't see the results they want. Luckily, with the right science-based tools, you can burn fat faster and stay motivated throughout your journey. Here's how!

How to Burn Fat Faster

1. Change Your Daily Meal Plan 

You've likely heard the expression "abs start in the kitchen". Diet plays a massive role in fat-burning and everything you eat counts toward your end goal.

First, choosing your sources of protein is a great place to start. Sticking to lean meats like chicken, egg whites, non-fat dairy products, beans, lentils, and tofu is a great start. All of these are high in protein and low in unhealthy fats.

Try to avoid fatty sources of protein like beef, egg yolks (in excess), bacon, sausage, fat cuts of pork, and others. Protein is essential to workout recovery and muscle retention which is very important when burning fat.

However, it doesn't stop at protein, your carbohydrates and fats need to come from the right sources. Luckily, you probably have a fair idea of those already.

For example, carbs should come from oats, whole grains, brown rice, sweet potatoes, and quinoa. Sugary cereals, white bread, candy, and processed or refined carbs should generally be avoided. For fats, there are plenty of great sources, including:

  • Fatty fish (tuna, salmon, trout)
  • Nuts
  • Seeds
  • Coconut oil
  • Flaxseed oil
  • Olive oil
  • Avocados

The list goes on. You should avoid eating fats from bacon, potato chips, and sources you likely already know to avoid.

Also, fiber should play a major role in your diet, as it helps you feel full throughout the day, aids with digestion, and helps with hydration.

Don't Forget Micronutrients

Proteins, carbs, and fats are the three macronutrients. However, your micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) are just as important for both fat-burning, muscle retention, and health.

We could discuss all of the different micronutrients individually and their sources, but there's an easier way that will require less memory on your part. The keyword is color. Every meal should have plenty of colors, as color is a direct indication of the nutrition it offers.

Essentially, the more color you have on your plate, the more nutritional value there is. Salads and soups are the easiest way to add color to your diet, but just eating more fruits and vegetables will go a long way. Also, this will help you reach your fiber goals!

Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables will force your metabolism to work harder, as they require far more volume with fewer calories than most foods. This will help you feel full without loading up on calories, which will force your body to rely on fat and glycogen deposits more often.

Add Spices

Spices like turmeric and cinnamon are excellent for promoting health! Cinnamon helps your body regulate blood sugar levels and increase your metabolism, so add it to your smoothies, coffee, or anything else!

2. Exercise

A fat-burning strategy that doesn't include diet and exercise is not likely to get very far. Exercise is fantastic, but the right types of exercise will help you burn fat faster when paired with a proper diet.

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is known to condition your metabolism and help your body burn more calories throughout the day. In part, this is due to its impressive "after-burn" effect.

Overall, combining strength training and cardiovascular training is what's most important for boosting your metabolism. HIIT is just a great way to add both!

3. Use the Right Supplements

Now, be careful. Companies market plenty of supplements for weight loss, which makes them difficult to choose between. For the best results, you need science-backed supplementation like Suddenly Slim, which has been around for over 30 years and helped thousands of people lose weight.

These products work by cleansing the inner body and using detoxifying and fat-burning properties to help you achieve the weight loss results you desire!

4. Get Enough Sleep

Your body needs ample sleep in order to recover and adapt to new stressors like your workout routines. It's also particularly important for our metabolic health. Always prioritize getting at least 8 hours of sleep at night and try to take at least two rest days throughout the week for the best results.

5. Stay Hydrated

Always ensure that you are drinking more than enough water throughout the day, and don't buy into conventional wisdom. For women, you should aim for 11.5 cups on average, and men should aim for 15.5 cups per day.

Staying hydrated allows your digestive system to function properly, for your blood to deliver necessary nutrients throughout your body, and for your body to flush out harmful toxins.
