As in many other areas related to physical exercise, there are many factors that can determine that a person burns more or less body fat, achieving it in more or less time, with a certain level of intensity and performing a specific physical activity.

Next, 3 key factors that influence the burning of body fat will be described:

- FOOD AND CALORIC INGESTION: How many calories does your diet contain? Are you spending more, less or the same calories you consume daily? Taking into account the diet we follow is fundamental to understand how each person's metabolism works. For example, in general, a person who eats at least 3 times a day, with the appropriate caloric amounts for his body, will have a faster metabolism and therefore will burn more fat than a person who eats less daily, without adapting the calories you consume to your needs.

- YOUR BODY HAS MEMORY: Remember that anyone who has gone through muscle definition or weight loss processes usually has an advantage over those who have not tried it yet. The main reason is that, if the weight loss was done in moderation and progressively, following proper nutritional and sports guidelines, the body has memory for the elimination of fat cells and adipose tissue. With this, it will be easier for that person to repeat the task, especially if they combine a balanced diet with a physical training routine guided by a nutrition specialist and a personal trainer as well.

- THE PERCENTAGE OF BODY FAT: when you gain or lose weight, do you really know if what you gain or lose is fat or muscle? Is the percentage of body fat more important than the weight itself? The weight we see on the scale is not everything! The percentage of body fat will depend on several factors, such as age, weight and lifestyle habits that a person acquires. However, the percentage of body fat will be the key in determining whether a person is at their healthiest weight. How to calculate? In these cases, it is always advisable to consult a sports nutritionist, who will study your case in a personal way and will advise you according to your needs.

These three factors are critical when it comes to losing body fat in training. However, the following premise should not be overlooked: any excessive and accelerated fat loss, which is not carried out under the supervision of a sports nutrition specialist and through proper progression, is unlikely to be successful in the long run.

You will have to think that the body is ready to reserve fat deposits. If the caloric drop is fast and extreme, it can cause a slowing of the metabolism and, consequently, burn less body fat. In addition, it should not be forgotten that the loss of body fat is often accompanied by a decrease in muscle mass, so it will always be positive to keep it to avoid possible injuries and obtain a good performance in training.

RM Trainer advises that, in case of doubts, turn to a specialist who can help you, both in terms of food by a nutritionist, and in terms of training with a qualified personal trainer.

In this way, your process will be personal to you and it will surely be safer and more effective!
