“Don’t worry about losing weight, try to lose fat and gain muscle.”
By concentrating on losing fat and gaining muscle, you are influencing extraordinary upgrades to your well-being. Here are some of the tips to lose fat:
1. Prepare a high-protein diet plan: We have to lose fat, not our muscle mass. So, proteins are very important for muscle strengthening purpose. Plus, more protein intake means more energy in the body and increased overall strength. Protein intake can lower abdominal fat and you will feel full all the time which will reduce the intake of more food.
2. Do Strength training and Cardio Activities: According to Science, the most effective way to reduce fat and strengthen muscles is to exercises. Strength training and Cardio Activities are one of the best exercises to achieve your goals. Cardio and Aerobics can help reduce weight very fast plus they will give your body a lean shape, strength, and flexibility.

4. Include Yoga in your daily Routine: Yoga is a group of physical, mental, and spiritual practices and disciplines which originated in ancient India.

The most efficient and powerful yoga poses to reduce the fat percentage in the body are Simhasana (Lion pose), Jalandhara Bandha, Adho Mukha Svanasana, and Chaturanga Dandasana.
5.Cut down sugar-intake and add more fiber to your diet chart: Fiber, especially Viscous Fiber/Soluble Fiber, can reduce your appetite, thus, reducing your intake without trying. Viscous Fiber dissolves in water and forms “gel” in your stomach. This thick gel gives us the feeling that our stomach is full and thus, reduce our appetite.
Sugar, especially, White Sugar, is very harmful to our body. It is addictive, toxic, deadly and can be labeled as Sweet Poison. One teaspoon of sugar contains 16 calories that is equal to 70 Kilojoules. Cutting the intake of sugar can help us get rid of the fat much faster plus we will also be saved from the harmful effects of sugar. Instead of White Sugar, we can use Honey, Molasses, Jaggery Sugar, Maple Syrup, etc. These will help in reducing fat as well as they are very good for our body and health.
