Tips to burn fat this sum­mer

South Waikato News - - SPORT - By HEATHER GABY

Want to lose fat this sum­mer?

Cre­ate an en­ergy deficit. To lose body fat we must make sure our en­ergy in is less than our en­ergy out.

The best way to do this is to eat fewer calo­ries through good food choices. Com­bine this with burn­ing ex­tra calo­ries through ex­er­cise and we see a deficit of en­ergy in.

To shed fat, re­duce fat. The best way to achieve this is to re­duce your fat in­take. Re­duce your fat in­take and you will au­to­mat­i­cally re­duce your calo­rie in­take.

Keep hit­ting the weights. Mus­cle tis­sue needs calo­ries to be main­tained, there­fore the more mus­cle we have, the more calo­ries we burn on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. This is es­pe­cially im­por­tant for women be­cause as we age we start to lose our mus­cle mass.

Up the in­ten­sity. The fit­ter you are the more en­ergy you can burn for the same amount of time. Make grad­ual in­creases in your in­ten­sity. Polocrosse in Toko­roa This long week­end will be a busy one at the Toko­roa Me­mo­rial Sports­ground with Polocrosse teams from through­out the North Is­land com­pet­ing in the Pu­taruru/ Ti­rau Polocrosse Club tour­na­ment.
