Easy Ways To Cut Out Fat


It’s not easy being healthy, especially when Pizza and Pasta exist in the world. It makes you wonder why so many Italians are skinny… Anyway, today we are going to talk about cutting out that fat. No longer will the scales be our worst enemy, and we will be able to fit into those jeans from the 90’s once again.

Bringing up a family can be tough work, and often it means that looking after the body can be forgotten amongst a myriad of tantrums and school runs; but no more. It is time to stop using the kids as an excuse and to get up and do something about the situation. Many people believe that being healthy is too expensive, but it’s not at all. Turning your fatness into fitness is surprisingly simple with a few small life changes.

Eat More Protein

Protein is the lifeblood of the human body. It is a macronutrient found in food which helps to repair muscles and protect against illnesses. Eating more protein not only helps you stay in shape but allows you to try a whole new range of foods. Here are some foods which contain protein:

  • Meat – Beef, Chicken, Pork, Salmon etc.
  • Greens – Spinach, Kale, Asparagus, Lettuce, Broccoli
  • Nuts and Seeds
  • Eggs

If you think that incorporating protein into your diet will be too hard, take a look at these easy recipes on Pinterest. It will not only be beneficial for you, but the whole family will thank you for it.

Drink Lots Of Water

The average adult should be drinking at least 2 litres of water every day. And I know what you may be thinking; water is boring. It doesn’t taste of anything. The good thing is you can jazz up your water by cutting up fruit and dropping it into the glass. Strawberry and lime is an excellent combination, and it also gives you some extra vitamins, so it’s a win-win.

Ditch The Carbs

Carbohydrates are an essential part of your diet, but the amount you intake can affect your weight dramatically. When you eat too much sugar or carbohydrate, you get a burst of energy. This is because your blood sugar level rises. Your body will try to reduce this by producing insulin, which will restore the level back to normal. It might sound great, but insulin is one of the most prolific fat cell producers in the body. When reducing the blood sugar level, insulin does the only thing it can; it converts the sugar to fat. This is why it is imperative to reduce your carbs and bulk up on protein instead. There are a few diets which allow this, and you can find information on a ketogenic diet and others online.


Reduce Portion Sizes

It might sound like your worst nightmare, but reducing the amount you eat is the best way to control your calorie intake. You don’t have to starve yourself, but reducing the portion sizes you eat will allow your stomach to metabolise food quicker. The best way to do this is to buy new plates. If you have a large plate which is only half full, your mind will tell you there isn’t enough food, however, if you have a small plate which is piled high, your mind will be tricked into feeling fuller quicker. Simple.

The Breakfast Rule

‘Breakfast is the most important meal of the day’ is a phrase which is chimed and drummed into our brains from being young children into adulthood, but what does it really mean? When you go to sleep at night, your body continues to work, digesting food, breaking down fat and cleansing your body of toxins. In the morning, your gut is at a standstill, your metabolism isn’t running and you need a kickstart. Eating a nutritious breakfast full of protein and healthy fats kickstarts your metabolism and allows it to work faster throughout the day. So breakfast should never be skipped.

Get Moving

Unfortunately for us, remaining a couch potato isn’t going to help you lose weight and become the Adonis you’ve always wanted. A sedentary lifestyle is a surefire way to keep that spare tyre alive for years to come. So get up, get out of the house and move around. You don’t need a gym membership to stay fit; you can go for a walk, run, play football, and even follow workouts on YouTube. It’s easier than you think and can cut the fat down rapidly.
