Even though burning fat can sometimes be tricky, there are simple, yet effective, ways to lose fat.

Cut Out Unnecessary Calories.
This one is simple.
Think about all the excess and unnecessary calories you take in on a daily basis.
Soda, chips, sweets are a few.
Let's say you take in a total of 500 calories a day of this garbage.
That's 3500 calories every seven days.
It doesn't paint a pretty picture where I'm going with this.
Not to mention, all this junk provides no nutritional value.
Also, it will spike your insulin level which makes your body store more fat.
Eat for optimal health, and you will start to lose fat in no time.
Eat More Fiber.
What does eating fiber have to do with losing fat? It's a proven fact that diets high in fiber help control hunger.
Fiber also regulates your digestion, and helps lower the risk of certain diseases.
Here are some foods high in fiber: a.
Fruits: apples, pears, strawberries, and raspberries.
Grains: brown rice, whole-wheat spaghetti, and popcorn.
Veggies: artichoke, peas, and broccoli.
By no means is this a comprehensive list of foods high in fiber, but the above foods are highest in fiber by grams per serving.
Give these a try, and you won't be as hungry.
Snack All Day Long and Eat Less as the Day Goes On.
This is the one where we have it totally backwards.
We tend to skip breakfast, eat a big lunch and a big dinner with nothing in between.
You know the feeling of having no energy around 10 or 11 in the morning and then how you want to take a nap after lunch.
Instead, eat smaller portions at each meal and have a healthy snack in between.
This serves two benefits.
One, your insulin level will stay at a constant level keeping your body from storing excess fat.
Two, you will not overeat at regular meals, reducing the total amount of calories you take in.
Now, you are on your way to losing fat! 4.
