There are several non-pharmacologial means to stimulate the body to burn fat without harmful side effects: (1) caloric restriction (2) a low carbohydrate diet plan and (3) daily exercise. If you eat more food than you require for your energy needs, the excess fuel (energy) is stored as fat, and you gain weight. On the other hand, if you eat less food than you require for your daily energy expenditure, your body fuel stores will supply the additional calories and you will burn fat and lose weight.
Weight loss can be achieved through caloric restriction. Low calorie diets ranging from 1000 to 1,500 calories per day can produce weight loss in many overweight and/or obese individuals. Whenever caloric intake is less than energy expenditure, the body will consume its own fat deposits to meet daily energy requirements.
A diet low in carbohydrates can also stimulate the fat burning process. Carbohydrates are the body's first and preferred source of energy. The body will not draw energy from fat in the presence of plentiful carbohydrate stores. As long as the carbohydrate stores are abundant, the body does not need to derive its energy from fat.
Thus, an overweight and/or an obese individual who continues to consume large quantities of carbohydrates will not lose fat and will not lose weight.
Exercise optimizes the fat burning process by increasing energy expenditure. Exercise increases the metabolic rate. A higher metabolic rate increases the amount of calories burned, thereby resulting in weight loss.
If caloric restriction is combined with a low carbohydrate diet and exercise, the body will burn more fat and at a much faster rate. The most effective plan to burn fat will combine all three of the aforementioned means.
