Hey guys. Andrew here from Fit Futures Academy.

Today I’m going to be talking about ‘fat burners’ and ‘time wasters,’ basically the do’s and don’ts.

So ‘do.’ You’re going to want to have a sustainable calorie deficit in order to slowly reduce your calorie intake in order to lose body fat. Next is protein intake. Make sure you’re getting at least one gram of protein per pound of body weight. And lastly are progressive exercises. You want to train every muscle group at least twice a week and progress your lifts week to week.

Now the ‘don’ts.’ There’s so many things out there that people claim to burn fat. Pills and supplements, don’t bother with them. Fad diets, things like keto, incremental fasting, they all work on the same premises of a calorie deficit. And lastly, crazy cardio routines. Sprints and all these different types of things that have suggested afterburn effects and things like this. They all work because they burn calories which puts you into a calorie deficit.

For more muscle building tips, tune in next time.
