The mistakes people do while they are working out is drinking fluids that have sugar to keep their energy up during the work out that prevents the body from learning to burn fat. The body will burn the sugar and not fat then for the body has to learn and develop its fat burning abilities. Eating protein after you work out and greens, lots of greens before and after work out with lemon mixed in water. Lemon and water mixed is a great work out drink. Keep in mind their are all types of lemons, so picking a good tasting lemon creates a more enjoyable affect. NO fruit drinks after work out they have to much sugar so fat will not continue being burned.
