Recently I appeared on Mornings With Kerri-Anne to discuss how we can burn more fat during our workouts and through our diet. Watch the 3:24min clip below.

My Top 5 Tips for Burning More Fat:

  • Train before Breakfast, on an empty stomach: Studies show you burn more fat training on an empty stomach and your metabolism stays boosted for up to 15 hours after you train. That covers you over breakfast, lunch and even dinner!
  • Interval training: Building up the intensity of a cardiovascular activity to close to a 10/10, then giving yourself a recovery. For example my treadmill interval training program
  • Running is the BEST fat burner around: Try to teach yourself how to run. The Couch to 5k is a great ‘learn to run’ program, building you up steadily over 9 weeks.
  • Build lean muscle mass: The more lean muscle you have on your body, the faster your metabolism. Try to incorporate weight training into your program at least two days per week.
  • No carbs at night: I am a carboholic and love them! They are not your enemy, however if you are wanting to maximise your fat burning then steer clear of them at night. They get converted to blood sugar very quickly, triggering the production of fat storing hormones such as insulin. Remember, no bread before bed, no white at night!

Do you have any fat burning tips that have worked for you in the past?

    I love that no. 3. Running definitely my favorite. It has been a month now I run every day. I lose fat, I got lean body. But I still wonder what is the simplest recovery. As you said “Interval training”

    Great, quick post. I agree with all of these and am a huge proponent of #1 – training before breakfast. For me, there’s no better way to drop a few pounds. Do you have any specific studies / sources that support this? I’d love to pass along to my clients.

    I’ve always read and heard that it’s important to eat breadkfast within 30 minutes after you wake up. I too would be interested in learning where you find the information on not eating before you workout in the morning. Thanks for the tips!


    Those are some very helpful tips. I can pass it on to some of co-workers.


    Those are some very helpful tips, I plan on sharing them with my co-workers. Thank you

    Very useful pointers!

    I do believe in always eating breakfast before exercising though, at least for myself. I find I get much more energy to do a decent workout with a banana or something first and this is what I recommend to most of my clients.

    One of my favourite interval training workouts is running drills on a track. It keeps your interest levels high because you are always changing it up, from straight sprinting, to high knees, butt kicks, sideways running, walking lunges, etc.
