by Kevin DiDonato, MS, CSCS, CES

You have tried everything in your power to lose weight and to keep the weight off.


You’ve tried every gimmicky product sold on late night TV…

You’ve tried every “miracle” weight loss pill…

You have even tried low- calorie, low-fat, gluten-free, and every other diet solution out there…

All with LITTLE or NO HELP at all!

You’re then left feeling frustrated, unmotivated, drained, and worst of all, F-A-T.

Do you want some EASY SHORTCUTS that will fire up your metabolism and help you burn FAT?

Of course you do!

But pay attention, because the next FOUR tips may propel you over your weight loss hurdle and help you burn more FAT, and finally, look
and feel the way you want to.

4 Shortcuts to Weight Loss

Of course, you still need to work hard at your goal of losing weight.

You still need to eat the right foods and exercise, in order to boost your fat burning.

However, these 4 tips, may separate the boys from the men, the girls from the women, and help you shed the fat and look good doing it!

So what are they?

Shortcut #1: Tackle the Hills

On your daily walk or run, you may avoid the lurking hill, because it looks just so darn hard.

But walking on an incline not only boosts your fat burning but it may increase your muscle strength and tone.

Research has shown that increasing the incline of your workouts (HILLS!), without changing walking or running speed, may increase your fat burning - by as much as 15 percent!

Plus, the bigger the hill or incline, the more calories you can burn during your workout!

So go ahead, tackle that hill! 

Shortcut #2: Get More (or better) Sleep

If you’re like most people in the world, then you probably are not getting enough sleep.

And that may spell trouble for your weight loss.

Research shows that not getting enough sleep could cause you to crave nutrient-dense, calorie laden foods that could lead to MORE padding on your hips, butt, and thighs.

Not getting enough sleep should be every dieter’s worst nightmare!

So next time you lay down, aim to get at least six to eight hours of good, uninterrupted sleep.

Your body and mind will not be the only areas that benefit from it!

Shortcut #3: Skip the “Fat Burning” Zone and Shoot For Higher

Have you heard every trainer, fitness expert, or fitness professional tell you during your “orientation” to the machines, that you should aim for your “fat burning” zone?

Of course you have!

This has been going on for years in the fitness industry.

The “experts” say that a slower, more comfortable speed will burn fat for energy, sparing other nutrients in your body (sugar).

If you ever want to shrink your fat cells what you SHOULD REALLY DO is include interval training, sprints, or exercise at a more moderate to intense pace.

Current research shows that altering the intensity (interval or sprint training) may boost your fat burning during your workout.

But even better: you could burn more FAT AFTER your workout is over.

So if you want to shred fat, skip the fat burning zone, and shoot for a higher intensity workout!

Shortcut #4: Write Down EVERYTHING

If you want to boost fat loss, try writing every calorie, every exercise, and your weight DOWN.

This may keep you motivated at losing weight, especially as when you see the weight FALL off!

It has been shown, that people who write down EVERYTHING they ate and the exercises they did, ended up losing MORE weight than the people who didn’t.

Start Burning More Fat Today

If you have ever struggled to lose weight and didn’t know where to turn, then these shortcuts are for you.

Switching up your exercise plan, writing down everything you eat and the exercise you did, and skipping popular fat burning advice, could increase your fat burning, increase your weight loss, and increase your energy levels.

This could make you feel better, and more importantly, look better while you’re doing it!

Ever wonder how companies make dietary supplements?  Well, check out this video from Prograde Nutrition and you will see how they only use the best products and processes to make health and fitness supplements that work.

I don't know of any supplement company - other than Prograde Nutrition - that would have the guts to do this.  And, I'm sure their competitors aren't too happy about it!

That's why I'm a Prograde Nutrition Partner.
