When it comes to weight loss your list is usually a mile long if you want to be successful. There is the grocery shopping, meal prep, workouts in the gym getting your meals in and of course still work at your job.
What tends to happen is that you don’t have enough time to get it all in during each day. So you start skipping things or putting a workout off until the next day.
When you continue to put it off you may eventually stop all together.
If you MAKE time for yourself you will start to see noticeable changes to your hips, butt, thighs and abs.
Here are 5 things you can add to your normal day that only takes 10 minutes to complete.
1. Eat Breakfast
Breakfast doesn’t have to be always at 6am, but what I mean as breakfast is your first meal of the day even if that is at 10am. This first meal helps stimulate the metabolism and gets the fat burning process started early. It also helps you from overeating at other meals in the day.
Your first meal (breakfast) should be full of fat-busting fiber, lean protein and healthy fats to keep you full, satisfied and fat fighting the rest of the day.
2. 10 Minutes of High Intensity Training
When you are short on time to get to the gym and get that full workout in you have a choice of skipping the workout or getting in a quick workout.
Nothing gets your heart pumping like a high-intensity workout.
This type of workout incorporates short bouts of intense exercise. This type of workout continues to burn fat longer (sometimes as long as 24-48 hours).
If you are crunched for time take 10 minutes with 5-6 exercises and perform a quick high intensity workout.
This type of workout will push your body to the limit which will have you burning more calories and burn off that extra fat all in 10 minutes.
3. Add Greek Yogurt with Berries (my favorite is raspberries)
Research has shown us that many people who are overweight or obese are lacking in Vitamin D. This puts you at a higher risk of developing diabetes.
You can improve your levels simply by adding some Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is a great protein source and of course Vitamin D. Now top it off with your favorite berry and get in a boost of antioxidants.
To burn more fat choose a lower carb fruit so that there is a slower release of insulin.
4. Take The Stairs
This one couldn’t be any simpler, but actually be the most powerful.
To keep your fat burning going all day take the stairs instead of the elevator. Especially if your job is sedentary. Always take the stairs, park a little farther from the office doors and burn more calories all day with this simple strategy.
You are also going to develop lean muscle and a tone butt all from 10 minutes a day.
5. Exercise at Your Desk
Pick 5 to 6 exercises that will target the full body. This will break up your day, get your heart rate going and also believe or not stimulate your mind by increasing blood flow.
Some exercises you can do are squats, overhead presses, pushups or chair dips.
If you want to burn more fat while negating the side effects of sitting all day at work build in 10 minutes of full body exercises.
Now we know these aren’t the only things you have to do to shed that excess bodyfat. Adding these 10-minute additions to your routine though to give yourself a little extra bump for quicker fat loss.
When you have the right fortitude, the drive and motivation you will reach your goals and develop the body you have always dreamed of.
One more strategy that doesn’t even take 10 minutes is one that we have developed from our clients needs. We call it FRIED because it fries the fat cells really quickly off your body.
Here is a quick video of Kristine telling us what happens when she takes FRIED and what it does for her workouts.
