Losing body fat can be hard. The next time someone tells you that they have some new, easy solution to fat loss that flies in the face of conventional wisdom, be weary. Just as get rich quick schemes are scams, so are loose fat too quick ideas, except of course some options like weight loss surgeries.
However, there are some affordable weight loss options you could try out.
THE KETOGENIC DIET
A keto diet is well known for being a low carb diet, where the body produces ketones in the liver to be used as energy. It’s referred to as many different names – ketogenic diet, low carb diet, low carb high fat, etc.
When you eat something high in carbs, your body will produce glucose and insulin. Since the glucose is being used as a primary energy, your fats are not needed and are therefore stored. Typically on a normal, higher carbohydrate diet, the body will use glucose as the main form of energy. By lowering the intake of carbs, the body is induced into a state known as ketosis.
Ketosis is a natural process the body initiates to help us survive when food intake is low. During this state, we produce ketones, which are produced from the breakdown of fats in the liver.
The end goal of a properly maintained keto diet is to force your body into this metabolic state. We don’t do this through starvation of calories but starvation of carbohydrates.
Our bodies are incredibly adaptive to what you put into it – when you overload it with fats and take away carbohydrates, it will begin to burn ketones as the primary energy source. Optimal ketone levels offer many health, weight loss, physical and mental performance benefits.
The ketogenic diet still remains one of the most cost efficient and reliable ways of burning fat as you can choose your diet based on your pocket. Below is a little list of keto approved food to guide you
Fats & Oils. Try to get your fat from natural sources like meat and nuts. Supplement with saturated and monounsaturated fats like coconut oil, butter, and olive oil.
Protein. Try to stick with organic, pasture-raised and grass-fed meat where possible. Most meats don’t have added sugar in them, so they can be consumed in moderate quantity. Remember that too much protein on a ketogenic diet is not a good thing.
Vegetables. Fresh or frozen doesn’t matter. Stick with above ground vegetables, leaning toward leafy/green items.
Dairy. Most dairy is fine, but make sure to buy full-fat dairy items. Harder cheeses typically have fewer carbs.
Nuts and Seeds. In moderation, nuts and seeds can be used to create some fantastic textures. Try to use fattier nuts like macadamias and almonds.
Beverages. Stay simple and stick to mostly water. You can flavor it if needed with stevia-based flavorings or lemon/lime juice.

How to set up energy level? Just look at the control panel of the machine. Instruction can found on Page 5 of the user manual.
You can apply it to any areas except around eyes and heart. Just remember 10-15 minutes per treatment. Better focus on one area such as abdomen and one leg one time.
Apply the gel 3mm-5mm thick to the area before starting the treatment. Ultrasound gel is the conductive medium to help ultrasound reach deeper underneath the skin. Apply more gel if it dries out during treatment.
Since you have this slimming device at home, we suggest that you spend more time figuring out the best pattern that’d work for you. It is a customized cavitation treatment made by yourself and working for yourself. Be patient and magic will happen.
NATURAL/ TRADITIONAL METHODS
These methods are the most commonly used methods for burning fat, but not many have that endurance or time to spend in achieving their set targets through these.
Unlike surgeries, these methods are not instant fat burners, but with consistency, you would not only get a perfect body shape, but a healthier body.
Below are a list of some natural ways to lose weight
- Good and regular exercises:
you must not necessarily go to the gym before you can exercise. Activities such as a light jogging in the morning, brisk walks and a host of other exercises helps in reducing weight.
- Add protein to your diet:
When it comes to weight loss, protein is the king of nutrients.
Your body burns calories when digesting and metabolizing the protein you eat, so a high-protein diet can boost metabolism by up to 80-100 calories per day
- Avoid processed food:
Processed foods are usually high in added sugars, added fats and calories.
What’s more, processed foods are engineered to make you eat as much as possible. They are much more likely to cause addictive-like eating than unprocessed food.
- Limit your intake of added sugar:
Eating a lot of added sugar is linked with some of the world’s leading diseases, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes and cancer. Same goes for eating sugar filled treats or snacks endlessly.
- Drink water:
There is actually truth to the claim that drinking water can help with weight loss.
Drinking 0.5 liters (17 oz) of water may increase the calories you burn by 24–30% for an hour afterwards.
Drinking water before meals may also lead to reduced calorie intake, especially for middle-aged and older people.
Water is particularly good for weight loss when it replaces other beverages that are high in calories and sugar.
To achieve success in your goals, you need consistency and determination and very soon you will get there. Losing weight is not just about how you look, but how you feel too. To be fit is to be healthy.
