Reduce Calories and Burn Fat.

 There are 3,500 calories in one pound of fat.
Thus, if you cut back or work off 3,500 calories, you will lose an entire pound of fat. It is possible to cut back on your calorie intake and increase your exercise regimen to lose pounds. it is important to note that doctors recommend that you lose no more than 2 pounds of weight per week. That ensures that your body adjusts to the weight loss.
Here are some tips to help you drop fat from your regular routine:
Running for about 1 hour at a slow pace will help you lose approximately 350 calories. That’s depending on your body type, speed, and terrain. Thus, if you run for one hour five days a week while maintaining a consistent diet, you will lose one pound.
Many people who begin running will eat pasta and other foods high in carbohydrates. That’s to compensate for the exertion. They think that because they worked out so hard, they deserve a treat. After all, they justify, the pasta will help to keep their energy levels high.  Pasta can infuse a workout routine with energy. That does not actually set their bodies up to lose weight. Burning 350 calories but in taking 450  adds 100. Running does help to boost your metabolism and change your muscle tone. You burn more fat. Instead of inhaling a pasta dish after a run, select a salad and a slice of fish.
Eat In
 When you eat out at a restaurant you subject your body to an array of high fat, high-calorie foods. You are also tempting yourself to eat a larger part than you might normally eat. What could be a simple 500 calories meal can turn into a 1500-calorie fat fest. To lose weight be sure that you are aware of exactly what you are putting into your body. Especially in the beginning of your new routine. It is important that you prepare your meals and watch your level of hunger.
When eating out, generally you are in a social situation. Food is not a priority but spending time with your friends is. For this reason, people tend to eat more than they should. Non-dessert eaters often even spring for the extra round of calories. If you must eat out, help yourself avoid temptation by selecting a salad rather than a plate of pasta or burger. Make simple choices with your meal options.
 Reduce your calorie intake and increase your level of physical activity. You will lose weight without much trouble. Make sure that you stay focused, motivated and on task. You’ll shed unwanted weight in no time!
