Lots of people are online trying to sell the latest and greatest fat loss tips in all kinds of formats.

They work, but do you really need to spend a ton of money on these ideas?
If you do like to spend money to believe that something is valuable and that the more you spend, the better the information is, then these tips are probably not for you. Because they are so simple in nature they can be done by virtually anyone. No need to buy a gym membership or invest in the super size weight set or one of those machines that folds up and sits in the corner of your apartment.
Pretty much, with a lot of people it’s a given that the gym membership will simply continue to be an ongoing expenses that people feel guilty about giving up. Extensive weight sets with super curl bars and such are really targeted toward pro athletes and the machines spend most of their time folded up in the corner.
Here are two top tips to help you burn more fat and lose more weight in your quest for better health.
Drink More… Drink A Lot More
Water that is. Go to your refrigerator and get rid of all the artificially sweetened drinks. Throw out all the energy drinks and for right now, don’t even drink fresh squeezed juice. Most people don’t drink anywhere near enough water during the course of the day. And many times when people feel hungry or think it’s time for a snack, what is really happening is that they are thirsty.
Your brain has learned to misinterpret the signals from the blood, especially if you have been drinking a lot of artificially-sweetened drinks. Your body craves water, and many people give it food instead. That’s no good. Try drinking about 6 – 8 glasses (8 ounces) a day and you will be quite amazed at how different you feel when it comes to meal times.
Eat More… Eat A Lot More
Often that is. Somehow when we are growing up we are taught the idea that not only are we supposed to get hungry on a schedule (and usually somebody else’s schedule) but that when we get the meal, we are well behaved if we clean our plates. The number of calories that many people consume in the course of one regular meal is often more than many slimmer people eat in the course of an entire day.
If you decide that you are going to be in charge of your diet and your own weight loss, then try breaking up the day with more frequent meals. Truth is, your stomach is only about the size of your fist. How much food do you really think you can fit in there? And interestingly, many people learn to eat through fear of there not being any more food for them.
So not only are they scared, but they eat way more than their bodies can possibly process before next meal time. Eat small meals, more often throughout the day, and you will be amazed at how hungry you do NOT get during the day. Your body will process your food more efficiently, and you will not eat anywhere near as much because you are not as hungry.
Try these two tips out. They are easy to implement in your regular day and they can help you see results very quickly, which will give you even more incentive to lose weight fast.
