If you are a woman who wants to burn off some of that excess fat then looking at how a man burns fat may help you to see better results.
Here are 3 things that men do that you should start implementing:
#1: He loves meat
For some reason when it comes to cravings women tend to crave fatty carb-rich foods like pasta or ice-cream, while men tend to go for steaks, etc.
As the steak is full of protein he will not experience the same fattening effects of the food.
Protein is slower to digest so will help to keep you feeling fuller for longer, it is also helpful for repairing broken muscle tissue so will help build muscle mass.
Carbs on the other hand are quickly burnt so will cause a sharp increase in your blood sugar levels, which unfortunately will not last leading to further food cravings.
#2: He lifts heavy
At the gym do you tend to stick to the cardio machines such as the treadmill or elliptical?
If you do then you may not be seeing the most benefits from your time at the gym.
Take a look at the males, they are most likely spending their time lifting weights, which you should perhaps consider yourself.
When you workout using only cardio you are only burning calories while you are working out, when you lift weight though you will be burning calories during the workout and for up to 24 hours afterwards too.
Lifting weights will also help to build muscle (especially is your diet is full of protein), which will also help boost your metabolic rate. Muscle has been shown to burn more calories than fat, even while you are resting.
#3: He doesn’t care about the scale
The vast majority of men have no idea what they weigh, they are more concerned by how they look.
Perhaps you should use the same mentality? Put away those scales and worry more about how you look and feel.
If you are eating healthily and getting regular exercise you will notice that your clothes will become looser and you will most definitely will see the difference in the mirror.
Worrying about the numbers on a scale can put undue pressure on yourself to constantly ‘lose weight’, which can cause an increase in cortisol production leading to increased food cravings.
