Say NO! to body fat

Use strategies that slow down the rate at which sugar is absorbed into your bloodstream so your body doesn't store as much fat. Utilizing these strategies will result in staying lean and preventing your body fat percentage from increasing.

Try them out and let us know the results, Thanks!

Fruit and Veggies
Replace breads, pastas and rice with fruits and veggies. No, this is not the atkins diet because you are not eliminating carbs from your diet, you are just simply changing the type of carbs. Most Fruits and veggies provide us with the type of sugars that metabolize at a fast rate, which means your body will not store the sugar as fat, but rather use it for energy.
Chromium Picolinate
In a recent study, Swiss scientists gave a test group a single 400 microgram (mcg.) dose of Chromium Picolinate before they consumed a high-carbohydrate meal. Subsequently, the group’s blood-glucose levels were 23% lower than when they ate the same meal without the supplement. Try it yourself, but make sure the mineral name includes ‘Picolinate’; the compound is the form of Chromium that your body can most readily use. Don't double your dose though, thinking you’ll get better results, you won't burn fat faster by taking more. Researchers found that 800 mcg. was no more effective than 400mcg.
Hydroxycitric acid
(HCA), a rare organic acid, reduces appetite and helps prevent excess carbohydrates from being stored as body fat. Hydroxycitric acid is derived from the Malabar tamarind tropical fruit (Garcinia cambogia) native to India. HCA has been found to inhibit mitochondrial citrate lyase, leading to decreased acetyl coenzyme-A production and decreased fatty acid synthesis.
Filling Sandwich
Turkey, a good source of natural CLA, is a tasty filling for this simple sandwich. CLA is conjugated linoleic acid, which helps reduce body fat in people who are overweight. It doesn't help a big fat cell get little, but instead helps keep a little fat cell from getting big. Top it with a little onion. Onions contain an antioxidant called quercetin, which may keep your body from storing fat. Serve with a toasted whole-grain bun to add more fiber.
Exercise Early
Scientists at Syracuse University recently found that a single weight-training session early in the day, reduces the effect of a high-sugar meal on blood glucose by 15% for more than 12 hours after a workout. The most likely reason is that exercise drains your muscles' fuel reserves, which is stored glucose known as glycogen.
To ensure that you have plenty of energy for your next workout, your body immediately moves any available glucose to your muscles, where it's packed away for future use, which helps reduce blood-glucose levels. So until glycogen levels are replenished, which can take several hours, high-sugar foods aren't as detrimental to eat. Because aerobic exercise requires glycogen too, you can also expect to burn fat faster from a cardiovascular workout.  
Drink plenty of water
The truth is drinking 8 glasses of water per day is good for the avg person, but If you want to burn fat as fast as possible 16 glasses a day is what is expected.

Water helps supercharge cells, flush out harmful toxins, and increase your metabolism. consuming a lot of water makes it hard for the fat to "stick" to your body.
