It will soon be time for shorts, sarongs and bikinis to emerge from their hibernation. If the thought of baring your body this summer fills you with dread then it's time to start thinking about getting in shape. Don’t put it off… start today and you will soon be shedding those layers with confidence.
Interval training is one of the most effective to burn fat. Try exercising at your normal pace for several minutes, then briefly at a faster pace, before slowing down to your normal pace again. Slowly build up these intervals so that with each high intensity burst you’re working harder than the one before. Our bodies are quick to adapt to exercise and if you work hard you should see a reduction in body fat within 4 weeks.
To see a noticeable difference in your weight (without resorting to dangerous fad diets), try focusing your meals around appetite-suppressing protein and filling high-fibre vegetables. You will naturally feel fuller for longer, helping you to resist calorific snacks between meals and lose weight sensibly and effectively.
