Super-Simple Fat Loss

Need to lose 5 or 10 pounds of body fat fast? Looking for a super-simple (and healthy) way to do it? Here you go...

1. Cover the "energy" basics: get 7-8 hours of sleep per night, avoid drugs and alcohol, take a good multivitamin daily, drink pure water and unsweetened teas throughout the day.

2. Eat a half raw/half paleo diet: start eating nothing but lean proteins, fish, eggs, vegetables and fruits, nuts and seeds, and small amounts of natural oils (virgin olive oil, unrefined coconut oil, etc.). Try to get about 50% of your calories from raw foods, mainly veggies, fruits, nuts, seeds, and sprouts. Avoid all processed foods and refined grains, including breads, pastas, white rice, etc.

3. Do short, intense workouts often: do about 20-30 minutes of interval-based exercise 4-6 days a week. Do short bursts of intense exercise followed by periods of active recovery. Perform both full-body strength training and high-intensity interval training cardio (HIIT).

Now enjoy the leaner, fitter, healthier, sexier-looking body you've created! :-)
