If you are passionate about fitness, healthy lifestyle, wellness, fitness trackers, and you want to lose some weight, let me start reminding you something… fitness trackers are just a tool.

They can help you monitor, track, motivate and make you feel super cool (check an article about it here: but you, and only you are the only one doing the job.

- Glycemic Index and Glycemic Load are the most important tools you can use when getting in control of your weight. You can get my free e-book visiting my website.
- If your objective is to burn fat, it is important that you pay attention to how you plan your exercise routines. You should include some strength training exercises on top of your aerobic routine. If you want the maximum effectiveness, plan a HIIT like the 32 Mondays one. Here is what you should know and do:
- 30 min of daily moderate exercise to activate your metabolism and always have it in a burning mode.
- 5 min of daily “Time Out” to relax and make sure that your stress hormone levels are not too high, to avoid weight gain and fat accumulation.
- 20 min of strength training exercises to develop muscles, which are your energy burning machines (even when resting). Following with 20 min of aerobic exercise (fat burning per excellence). Keep the routines in this order so you burn all the glycogen stored in your liver and muscles (glucose reserves) during the strength training, so your body lacks free glucose for the aerobic exercise, and it is forced to burn fat. 3 times a week.
- HIIT: High-Intensity Interval Training. Mixes high-intensity bursts of exercise with moderate-intensity recovery periods, usually for a period of less than twenty minutes. Do not start HIIT until you have been practicing vigorous exercise for a few months and you are reasonable fit. Practice it whenever it suits you!
- Exercise Maintenance. Starting a new program of vigorous exercise can be difficult. It is always much easier to maintain something, than to leave it and have to start from zero again. So, it will be easier to maintain your present physical strength and routine than to start over again.
