Review your cardio technique.
Cardio is one of the most effective fat burning methods known. It can also be more effective if done correctly. There are three basic points to be aware of. These are cardio type, cardio equipment and average heart rate during exercise.
For more information on cardio, see my cardio guide.
I will talk about these basic points in order.
Your body has a great adaptation mechanism. Thus, all activities at a constant pace for a long time will begin to consume less calories after a while. One of the ways to break this cycle is HIIT. In this system after a period of high-tempo cardio slower tempo your body is constantly exposed to change is provided.

Your cardio with 1 hour high tempo will cost you 850-900 cal if you used an elliptical bike. If you have spent 1 hour by bike keeping your speed between 19-22 km; 700 cal. And finally, if you run for 1 hour on the treadmill at a high tempo, you will spend 600-650 cal.
You see, the elliptical bike got the rope. Be sure to include the elliptical bike in your cardio workouts to burn more fat. Never be monotonous, however. Remember that monotony is a more dangerous factor than you might think mentally and physically.
Heart rate range
One of the indispensable factors for effective fat burning is the heartbeat interval. You should monitor your heart rate during cardio and keep it at the appropriate level. Special equipment for measuring heart rate is easily available from the internet or sports stores. Most cardio machines also have pads where you can monitor your heartbeat.
To calculate your age-appropriate heart rate, please read our article Suitable heart rate for effective fat burning.
More training doesn’t always mean more fat burning. This is related to the alarm mechanisms of our bodies. Let’s summarize briefly.
The body adapts itself to the battle environment in extreme effort and stress. Thus, cortisol is released and blood sugar is increased and metabolism is tried to be slowed down. It also forces the body not to burn fat. However, the body’s immune system weakens, muscle destruction accelerates. The result is a body that tends to gain weight, can easily become ill, and has difficulty in repairing its muscles.
You can also observe this mechanism in wild animals. Animals who increase their fat storage during winter preparation tend to gain weight in stress and difficult situations.
For this, triggering cortisol release will always remain an undesirable condition in exercise.

The question arises as to how much training we should do to avoid triggering cortisol release. Let’s get it straight.
Experts find the duration of 45 to 90 minutes (including prior training, etc.) in terms of fat burning. Longer training can stress the body (depending on the intensity) and trigger cortisol release.

Nutrition before and after exercise
Nutrition before and after training is just as important as your training. You should design these two meals to give you energy during and after training, to keep your blood amino acid profile on the anabolic side and to help you burn fat more effectively.
You can create your own meals by looking at the pre- and post-training meals we have prepared for you.
(2 hours in advance) 150 grams of chicken, 100 grams of sweet potatoes or bulgur and green tea.
A coffee product (preferably turkish coffee) containing 1 cup / cup of high caffeine (30 minutes in advance).

At the end of the training, 10 grams of simple carbohydrates, 200 grams of chicken / fish / red meat.
2 hours after the meal, 1 bowl of light yogurt, 1 handful of unroasted peanuts.
