The best way to lose 5 pounds of body fat is a question that I get almost every day. People want to know if burpees are the best exercise for getting the job done. Others want to know if battle ropes or even jump rope are better at burning calories and burning fat. While all of them are at the top of the list for the most calories burned on a minute per minute basis, they still are not the best way to lose five pounds of body fat the fastest.
In this video, I show you how you can never outtrain a bad diet. If you refuse to pay attention to the quality of your nutrition and the foods you put in your mouth you are never going to have the low levels of body fat that you desire long term. Sure, anyone can follow a short term diet that allows them to lose fat for a few weeks however if you can’t keep it up then you will never be satisfied with your body fat levels over the course of the year.
Mistakenly, people look to exercises as the best way to drop body fat. While you definitely need to train, achieving fat loss is and always will be better accomplished via the right nutrition plan. This goes back to the comment about never being able to outtrain a bad diet. You simply cannot make up enough calorie burn via exercise (even the most intense) to overcome bad food choices. For instance, our very own Jesse is a big sugar fanatic and a worshiper of gummy bears. Just 17 measly gummy bears has 150 calories. Even if Jesse were to do 10 minutes straight of high effort high intensity burpees, he would only burn 120 calories and he would lose that battle with a net calorie gain of 30.
Now Jesse, being a hardgainer, is not concerned at the moment with his body fat levels. He was the only one wiling to do the burpees while I talked during the video being the good sport that he is. If you are looking to burn 5 lbs of fat however, you need to be sure that you are paying attention to what really matters. Your nutrition will always be at the top of the priority list for getting that job done.
Now, does that mean that conditioning exercises like burpees, jump rope, battle ropes and split squat jumps don’t have a place in your workout program if you need to lose fat? Not at all. In fact, with a good nutrition approach in place these exercises become even more effective since they compliment the losses that you are already making because of your improved diet. Not just that, each of these exercises helps to improve your stamina, work capacity, endurance, power endurance and your heart.
If you are looking for a way to improve your nutrition and get it locked in almost effortlessly 365 days a year, then head to http://athleanx.com and get one of the ATHLEAN-X Training Systems that best fits your goals. If pure fat loss is at the top of your list then you should opt for Max Shred.

It’s true men lose weight faster than women. But why? Why do men tend to lose more quickly than women? Learn why with Susan Bowerman, MS, RD, CSSD, FAND in this week’s healthy eating video.
Too many women figure that they’re ‘not trying hard enough’ to lose weight. But it usually isn’t that they aren’t doing enough – or that men are trying harder. It really comes down to the fact that men and women are simply made differently – and those differences have a big impact on weight loss rates.
There are three main reasons why men lose weight faster than women. It has to do with body size, body composition, and how they burn calories.
The larger a person is, the more cells they have and the more calories it takes to maintain body size. Men tend to be larger than women, so they need more calories to maintain their weight.
Men tend to have more lean body mass than women do so their body composition is different as well. Lean body mass is simply everything that’s not fat – so this component includes your bones, organs, muscles, ligaments, tendons and fluids. Every pound of lean body mass you have burns about fourteen calories a day or about thirty calories per kilo. Since men tend to have more lean body mass than women do, their daily calorie burn is higher. That alone puts men at an advantage when it comes to weight-loss because they’re able to burn more calories.
Men also burn more calories than women do when exercising. This is because it takes more calories to move a larger body through space. Since men tend to be larger than women, it takes more calories to do the same amount of exercise at the same intensity. Also, because men burn more calories at rest it does make it a little easier for them to lose weight.
For example, a heavy-set guy would need about 2,500 calories for him to maintain his weight. If he wanted to lose weight, he can cut 1,000 calories out of his daily intake, and only consume 1,500 calories per day. This is a reasonable amount of food. With this calorie deficit he can pretty easily lose about two pounds a week. A women on the other hand who maintains her weight on 1,600 calories per day wouldn’t be able to cut so many calories out of her daily intake. It’s not safe to cut down below 1,200 calories per day. So, if she goes from 1,600 to 1,200 calories a day, she’s only cutting out 400 calories a day. At a 400 calorie a day deficit, she’ll be lucky if she loses about half a pound per week.
The rate at which a person will lose weight depends on a lot of things. To learn more about this take a look at this nutrition article: http://hrbl.me/1JJswLC.
