When it comes to burning fat and losing weight, most people think: Go on a diet/Do cardio. “The less I eat and the more I run, the leaner I will be.” (And if you lift weights, you must be trying to get huge, right?)
It’s easy to believe that cardio and diet are the keys to shedding pounds and getting lean. But in reality, your body needs a powerful signal to burn stored fat. Simply burning calories won’t cut it.
