Eat small portion:

High-intensity interval training exercise can help you burn more fat by increasing your metabolic rate, even after your workout has finished, however, it is not recommended if you are obese as it can put unnecessary pressure or load on various body joints.

Your body needs to burn calories continuously just to survive, even when you’re are resting. This resting metabolic rate often differentiates between people who gain lots of weight or those who are slim and fit.
The resting rate is much higher in people with more muscle. Every pound of muscle uses around 6 calories a day just to sustain itself, while each pound of fat burns only 2 calories daily.
This small difference can add up over time and can make a big difference. With the help of strength training, muscles can be build up and raise the daily metabolic rate.
