Today I’m going to reveal the best time to exercise if your goal it to lose weight, especially that stubborn belly fat.
And yes, this works for BOTH men and women, at any age.
Now, gaining muscle is a very different metabolic goal than losing fat. In fact, they are on opposing sides.
Except for the small minority who have exceptional genetics and/or are taking steroids and other “metabolic enhancing drugs”, you can’t do BOTH at the same time – unless you JUST started exercising.
However, today I’m going to show you that you actually CAN gain muscle and lose fat – but today’s topic is more specific about you losing FAT and more importantly, keeping it off.
So, let’s get started.
#1 – After You Eat
Here’s a very simple trick for losing fat – take a 10-15 min brisk walk, after you eat a meal. So, this would be preferably 3x daily – breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
You can take a walk outside and just walk 5-7 min in one direction and then turn around and walk back. That’s it.
I’m not asking you to walk 20-30 minutes. In fact, that’s too much.
Just 10-15 minutes and thus, about 30-45 minutes in total, daily.
Personally, I love this because, after 10-15 minutes, I’m just bored anyway.
Now, the benefits are that:
- At the end of the day, you’ve walked 30-45 minutes and thus, 15-20 HOURS a month. And it can be done anywhere, anytime and it’s free. So, NO excuses. That’s a lot of extra calories burned.
- It improves digestion, which means the nutrients are going to be utilized for energy, rather than fat storage.1
- It lowers cortisol levels, the stress hormone. This means less belly fat, higher testosterone, growth and thyroid hormones — all burning more fat.
- Lowers blood sugar levels by up to 50-60%. And high blood sugar stores the food in the fat cells.3,4
- It also helps lower blood pressure – which may not do much for burning fat, but it is good for your heart.2
#2 – First Thing In The Morning
The next best time to exercise is first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach – in the fastest state. Mind you, not with weights – but again, cardio. And, I would limit it to fast-paced walking.
In the morning, you have very little glycogen in your muscles and liver. By doing cardio – more specifically, fast walking – you’ll burn much more fat since you have very little carbs in your body.
However, if you lifted weights on an empty stomach, you will burn some fat – but you’ll burn more muscle. This is because lifting weights requires glycogen (carbs) and amino acids (muscles). IF you have no carbs in your system, your body will now burn muscle.
This is why you always want some food in your body, before a weight-lifting session, which is what I explained in detail in a previous article.
So do your cardio, fast-pace walking, first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach.
And if you take a fat-burning supplement, which increases your metabolism – such as Lean Optimizer, you’ll easily burn 2-3x more fat and have more energy as well.
But, I’ll tell you more about this in a minute.
#3 – After A Weight Training Session
Finally, the 3rd best time to do your cardio session is AFTER your weight-lifting session. Ironically, MOST people do it the opposite.
They’ll do cardio for 30 minutes and THEN lift weights for 30 minutes. This is totally wrong.
You’ll burn less fat and actually lose more muscle.
By lifting weights first, you’ll use up all of your glycogen (carbs) in your muscles and liver. Now, all that’s left is “protein” and “fat”. By doing cardio, such as a brisk walk, you’ll go right into FAT BURNING mode.
BUT, if you were to do strenuous cardio, such as running – you’ll burn fat, but you’ll ALSO burn more muscle because there are no more carbs to burn. You used it all up in your weight lifting session.
So now, the running will burn fat AND muscle – this is NOT what you want.
Do a 5-minute warm-up in the bike or something, lift weights for 30-40 minutes, and then finish off with a brisk 20 min walk after your weight-lifting workout.
It’s Proven – It’s NOT A “Fad”
Now, what I’ve revealed today is proven with hundreds of clients over the past 30 years. From professional athletes to just regular people. Young and old.
It works and it works EVERY TIME!
There’s no “fad” method. No “new scientific research”. This is time-tested and proven.
And it’s by far, the BEST long-term solution because it helps to optimize your fat-burning hormones, for continued and long-term success.
I’m so tired of people losing and gaining the weight back. It’s just painful. It’s not good for your body and certainly not emotionally.
Do what I suggested today and if you want to burn even more fat, increase your metabolism, reduce your appetite and boost your energy levels… while optimizing your primary fat-burning hormones – then copy the proven formula that’s worked for almost 20 years — backed by science and more importantly, REAL LIFE results by thousands of people.
So there you have it!
- Walk 10-15 min after each meal – best option
- Walk 20-30 min, first thing in the morning on an empty stomach
- Walk 20 min, after your weight-lifting workout
And utilize a metabolic, fat burning, hormone optimizing solution such as Lean Optimizer to safely accelerate fat loss, while preserving muscle mass.
