  1. Exercise with intensity
    Use the F.I.T.T. Principle in your fitness regime i.e. Frequency, Intensity, Time and Type. How often you exercise is frequency which should be approximately 45mins at least 3 times a week, Intensity is the amount of work that must be invested in a specific exercise workout, Time refers to how long each individual session should last and what type of exercise will you be doing which should be a combination of cardiovascular and resistance training. The combination burns calories and also increases the metabolic rate long after the exercise and you build muscles which burns fat even when asleep.
