If you want to burn fat quickly and reach your goals in the shortest possible time then you need to maximize the amount of fat you burn every day. If for example you could double the amount of fat you burned daily just think of the impact that would have on your body. What if you could actually be burning fat all day long just imagine how much faster your progress would be then?
The problem I see all the time is people who are trying really hard to lose weight but just can´t seem to make any real improvement. Yes they might lose a few pounds here and there but then it stops for a while, then they put some back on, then they lose that and the whole process keeps on repeating itself. They just don´t seem to be able to keep losing fat consistently and get any form of momentum going. Does this sound familiar?
If this applies to you then the simple truth is that you are just not burning enough fat regardless of what exercise or nutrition plan you are following. Here are 3 reasons why this could be happening.
1.You’re not thinking about your hormones.
Most of the mainstream weight loss programs only look at losing weight by using calorie manipulation. ie. Eat x amount of calories and you will see the fat melt away. The thing if this was completely true then most woman I meet would be stick thin however this is not the case and a lot of it is to do with hormones.
When it comes to burning fat hormones are the ones in control.
Hormones such as Leptin, Insulin and Adiponectin are all involved in the fat burning process and they control how much fat we store and how much we burn. If the foods you eat and the way you eat is not set up correctly these hormones can get out of sorts leading to reduced fat burning or even worse increased fat storage.
However there are strategies you can learn to such as food combining, nutrient timing and re-feeding days that allow the body to manage then hormones in your body much more efficiently and therefore allow them to do their job properly which is dealing with the fat in your body.

2.The exercise program you follow is not boosting your metabolism properly.
I have touched on this subject of what type of exercise you should be doing for optimal fat burning in previous posts such as how to lose 10 pounds in 2 weeks or how to get a six pack in a month but it is always worth bringing up again.
Essentially you need to be working out with intensity and to accomplish this properly you need to a certain type of exercise technique. If you are going to the gym, training at home or even going outside and doing what we could call traditional fat loss workouts doing one pace cardio exercises such as jogging or doing light weight, high repetition resistance workouts and not seeing quick results you need to ask yourself why.
Yes your diet may not be perfect but another factor is that you are just not raising your metabolic rate enough both during and after the workout. Of course you will have burned calories while you work out but the fat burn will be relatively small and won´t last for long.
Now of course this is still progress but to see really noticeable results this approach will take much longer and require that your diet be really dialed in without any flexibility.
I don´t know about you but I don´t have the time or the inclination to be working out for months on end without seeing much reward for all my efforts.
If you really want quick results and to get the most from the time you set aside for exercise that actually has a positive and lasting effect on your metabolism and therefore on how much fat you burn then in my opinion you need to be doing a combination of full body resistance workouts and interval training done at high intensity ie with short recovery periods.

3.You’re not consistent in your actions
If you were a training client of mine then you would know that consistency is one of my favorite words. In my book consistency is the key factor in achieving anything whether it be fat loss, building muscle or anything else you want to achieve in life.
If you are not doing what needs to be done in terms of exercise and nutrition on a consistent basis you will struggle to lose fat. In fact most of the people who visit my site or read this article already know the basics on how to lose fat but still don´t get results and the problem is lack of consistent effort.
The thing is you are not alone with this issue because apparently less than 10% of people actually stick with any weight loss program for a lengthy period of time and therefore always fall short reaching their goals.
There a number of reasons for this but the ones I see most often are:
Loss of motivation because the program is either too restrictive or too extreme
Not having the time – Most of the time this is just an excuse and really means I am not prioritizing my fat loss regime.
Not seeing results quickly enough
No planning or lack of definite goals
No support network so feel isolated and unable to continue – this one is common for many people
If you know any other barriers as to why people fail to stay with any fat loss programs I would love to hear your views in the comments below.
I know losing weight is tough but if you can see it through the rewards are fantastic. Therefore isn´t important you have all the right information in a plan that you can follow and more importantly stick with?
