What’s the difference? Does it matter?
If you want to shrink in all the right places (such as tummy, hips and thighs), it’s important to know the difference between “burning fat” and “losing weight”.
There’s a HUGE difference!
One can be unhealthy, making you feel sluggish, looking older…
…while the other boosts energy, feeling younger, and shrinks your belly, hips and thighs.

Here are 3 things you can do to start “Burning Fat” and reshaping your body versus “losing weight”: (But watch video first)
- Condition and strengthen 12 key muscles in your body. I’ll give you a few of them now. The glutes, abs, calves and deltoids. These muscles are part of the keys to priming your body for fat burning. It doesn’t matter if you are male or female. Use enough resistance where 20 reps are challenging and add a burst of calisthenics in between sets and you are good to go.
- Don’t cut too many calories. The average female needs 2,000 calories per day. 1,500 if she wants to lose 1 pound per week. The average male needs 2,500. 2,000 to lose 1 pound per week. (These are only averages. Your numbers might be different depending on age and body type.) It’s not as much about calories as it is about exchanging your food choices to make sure the calories are coming from nutritious foods–“good” foods instead of “bad”. For example, instead of eating bread, replace it with flat bread, potatoes, or quinoa.
- Stop snacking. Every time you put something in your mouth, insulin hormone is produced. This can lead to insulin resistance. The more you call upon your body to produce insulin, the harder it is to tap into your fat stores. If you are insulin resistant (two thirds of Americans are either diabetic or prediabetic), it doesn’t matter how little you eat, it becomes nearly impossible to tap into fat stores.
These are some basics to burning fat and reshaping your body.
