 I realize we are all going to eat and drink more than we should this weekend. Me included. We have all earnt some time off this weekend. However do this to help minimize the damage. 1. Start your day with a high-protein, high-fiber breakfast each morning. This will keep you full for a long time and just hopefully you big out less the rest of the day.

  So what is the best way to lose fat? Without a doubt, nothing tops the most basic approach: eat less calories, eat whole food sources, engage in resistance training (to build lean muscle and burn more calories), and throw in some HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) for good measure. Based on my experience and astute observation of my peers, nothing beats this strategy for effectiveness.

Bogus According to researchers who compared people who ate their carbs in the morning with those who ate them at night, the nighttime carb muncher's lost more body fat and experienced less hunger overall. Food for thought.

 3-4 hour period after your workout is generally the best time to indulge in the lion's share of your daily carbs. Quick digesting carbs like fruit for example That's because for several hours after intense training, your insulin sensitivity is elevated. That means you'll store more energy in vital metabolic muscle instead of in your fat cells. Keep that in mind.

I blew up my elbow last week. It is an old injury that flared up again. To get better faster I avoided these 2 foods that can cause further inflammation ) Sugar - . Nothing damages the digestive track like sugar. The medical community is starting to agree on the fact that chronic inflammation often starts in your gut, the biggest part of your immune system. 2) Alcohol - I also like my Friday night drink-out, but keep in mind that beer or any other alcoholic beverage damages your gut flora and liver when consumed in excess. If your hurt this will help. Hope you all had a great Monday

Here are 10 Unusual Tips to Burn Fat Faster by Chad Howse of Powerhouse Metabolism 1. Drink water when you wake up. Our metabolisms are one of our most important friends in our mission to fight fat. By drinking 2 big glasses of cold water upon rising, we're getting the calorie burning process started without actually consuming any calories. We're also rehydrating our bodies after a 6-8 hour span with full body function that uses a lot of water, but has no hydration. 2. Fat cells are more receptive during the morning.
