Fat Burning Meals Under 300 Calories - How To Lose Fat And Inches The Healthy Way
Eating fat burning meals under 300 calories 4 – 7 times a day is a superb way to lose weight or maintain your fat loss. Depending on whether you are male or female is also important to your daily calorific intake. Men generally need more calories to lose and manage their weight than the ladies do.
First of all, and this is a priority you have to work out exactly how many calories you need to consume every day to lose 1 – 2 pounds per week. This is before you perform any exercise routine or activity. A food journal/diary is the best way to do this.
Write everything down, absolutely everything you eat and drink, then use this as a guideline as to how many times you are going to eat and how many calories per meal.
As an example: If you are a female who is looking to lose 1 -2 pounds per week by consuming 1,500 calories per day then these 300 calorie meals/snacks are ideal to eat every 2 1/2 – 3 hours 5 times per day.
This will stop your blood sugar level getting too low, stop you feeling hungry and boost your metabolism to burn more calories. Every time you eat your body burns calories to digest the food you’ve just eaten, so don’t miss meals or snacks to get maximum results.
Each of these meals under 300 calories contains 2 of the main factors for healthy fat loss. These are protein and fibre. Combined together protein and fibre meals will keep you fuller for longer and the protein will hold onto your muscle tissue whilst you burn off the fat.
One of the keys to a successful and long term weight loss plan is planning. With a little planning for the week ahead when you buy your groceries and daily planning and preparation of what you will eat play a huge role in keeping you on track and focused.
