Sometimes, losing weight is difficult and I personally believe it’s because people refer to the process as ‘dieting’. However, if you are looking for a ‘lifestyle change’ instead of ‘dieting’ then losing those extra pounds and learning to burn body fat isn’t as much of a dreaded chore. Instead it’ll become a victory that you can celebrate every single day! So, the first step is tossing that word completely!
All Natural Solutions To Burn Body Fat
A lifestyle change… A lifestyle that’ll become natural to you over time. It’ll be the small victories that’ll mean the most. Remembering that you are doing this for yourself and NO ONE ELSE will take you further than you thought possible. You alone are in charge of your health and fitness and it’ll become the best gift you have ever given yourself. You can’t put a price on that!
My goal with this article is to get you started based on my personal experience. These are basic steps to get you started and well on your way to a healthier YOU!
In this article, I’ll cover the following:
- The importance of protein (I’ll also include a list of protein rich foods)
- Low calorie foods
- Teas you can drink to burn fat
- Healthy snacks
- Daily workout
- Online support
Before I begin, I wish you all great success in this journey! Let’s get started!
The Importance Of Protein
Every cell in your body contains protein. Having and keeping protein in your daily diet helps your body to repair tissue and to make enzymes. Most importantly, protein is the building block for your muscles, bones, cartilage, blood, and skin.
Now, the question of “how much protein do I need per day?”. The US Department of Agriculture recommends that all men and women over the age of 19 should get at least 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight per day (or 0.37 grams per pound). That means a woman who is 130 pounds should get at least 48 grams of protein, which could look like 7 ounces of salmon or 7 eggs. ( source )
Here is a list of foods that are rich in protein, including vegetarian options:
- Chicken breast – 23.5 grams
- Egg whites – 11 grams
- Salmon – 23 grams
- Sardines – 25 grams
- Halibut – 27 grams

If you are looking for an effective (fat burning) daily workout for beginners, then this is it!
Start with this routine in the morning hours:
- 10 jumping jacks
- 10 squats
- 10 calf raises
- 10 side reaches
- 10 lunges
- 10 jumping jacks
- 10 squats
Remember to rest your body as needed. When beginning any workout routine, you should start with 3 days a week and work your way up.
Also, remember to stay hydrated. You should consume 8 – 8oz glasses of water a day.
As I mentioned before, you should make this lifestyle change only for yourself because, after all, your health and well being is ultimately up to you. However, it is also important to have support. Online support is a great place to start.
For example, consider joining a Facebook group or other social media groups with like minded individuals. This is a great way to share your personal story and to read testimonies from others. It is also a great way to gain insight and to get advice about the next steps in your journey.
There are so many great resources and tons of valuable information available online. With technology of today, your options as you go along are virtually limitless!
