Practice portion control, keeps your body happy so that you stay in a fat burning muscle building mode throughout the day.

    You can add a couple of thermogenic spices to your meals to maximize your fat burning abilities. These would be cayenne pepper and turmeric. Turmeric is also awesome because it's full of antioxidants and other good things.

    Number three is increase your protein intake, protein is your friend, it packs on the muscles and it also helps you to decrease your fat because the body burns more calories breaking down protein than it does on either carbohydrates or fat.

    In addition to that drink water, make sure to stay hydrated. 75% of the time that we feel that we are hungry we are actually just dehydrated, before any meal have a glass of water.
