Lift heavy weights, if you are a gym person, then you need to start lifting heavyweights. 

 Now you might be asking why should I need to lift heavy weights?? 

Well the answer is, the more weight you lift the more calories will burn and the more energy will be required by a body to repair those muscle tissue that you have done damage while lifting a heavyweight Compound lifts are the best way to increase the number of calories you burn in the gym because these exercises involve almost all the muscle groups in our body and hence increase the number of calories burned during that course of time 

Hack number 3 Focus on your body fats instead of your bodyweight: 

Focus on your body fats instead of your bodyweight. 

Most people try to lose weight but losing weight is not the result that you are trying to achieve. when you lose weight you also lose muscle mass, water, and also fat from your body. 

And let me tell you that weight loss is very unhealthy for your body instead of focusing on weight loss you need to focus on fat loss 

Hack number 4 Drink a lot of water: 

Drink a lot of water

Drink a lot of water no one can deny the fact that our body is 60% of water

So if you are not providing enough water to your body then your body will starve and your metabolism will slow down and eventually you will end up gaining more weight. 

So drink around 4 to 5 liters of water daily this will increase your metabolism and eventually also increase the number of calories you burn and ultimately we will lose weight and stay lean 

Hack number 5 Eat when you are hungry:
