How to burn body fat is always an interesting subject of discussion. While most people already know the basics – some uncommon – but potentially useful fat burning tricks do not get much exposure – beyond a relatively small community of athletes and gym rats.

If you ask these people to give you tips on “how to burn body fat,” be prepared to process a generous amount of information. Over the years, I have heard a fair share of tips and tricks on how to burn body fat.

Some turned out to be bogus, others proved to be very productive, and there was one other group – bizarre. The latter was easy to dismiss, but maybe it is time to reconsider.

How to burn body fat According to a recent study, if your goal is to maximize fat-burning during your cardio workouts, “the key is not to eat any carbs before cardio, because they can prevent fat from being used to fuel your workout.”

Instead of carbs, the study recommends ingesting a small amount of whey protein (6-20 grams) or amino acids. This, in and of itself, is not a novel idea. I can confirm that it works – the whey option that is – but if you are not used to something like this your performance may suffer.

In addition, I have noticed that this technique alone does not produce meaningful fat loss results. It seems to be only effective, when overall carbohydrate intake is taking into consideration.

How to burn body fat, take two Research from the UK seems to offer a way to burn fat and get the same energy benefits you would normally get by ingesting pre-cardio carbs. According to the same study, “rinsing your mouth with a carb drink (like Gatorade) but not swallowing it can help you work harder without blunting fat use.”

How could this be possible? According to the scientists involved in the study, “carbohydrate receptors in the mouth link directly to the brain and may increase motivation, thus allowing athletes to work out harder.”

Did Gatorade sponsor this study? I do not know. I do know, however, that several personal trainers that I trust have been testing this with a homemade sugary solution, which seems to work just as well as Gatorade.
