Belly Fat – How to Lose It

Posted By Janelle Elizabeth On April 17, 2009 @ 8:54 am In Weight Loss | Comments Disabled

Have you been trying to lose your belly fat with very little visible results? Are you one of those who have seen all the infomercials on TV and tried them all to no avail?

Losing the Belly Fat Fight?

By now, you may be feeling frustrated about all your attempts at slimming your waistline. You may have spent a fortune on abs exercise machines, gym memberships and some weight loss pills, yet all you probably saw was a weight loss that only reflected on a weighing scale, and not on your clothes.

The ad that you see on TV for abs products all show you one thing: a model with a flat stomach and visible abs. What they don’t show you are how those models really got their abs, that is, by spending hours at the gym and going on restrictive diets.

Of course, you get carried away with the promise of a sexy midsection minus the pain and long wait. You probably even think that since modern technology has provided an answer to practically every human problem there is in the world today, that perhaps these strange contraptions that “firm up” the abs of the TV models are just some of the wonders of science.

Sadly, there is no easy or rapid way to lose that belly fat. No pill or electronic device can take the place of good old exercise and diet discipline.

You need to remember the following to lose belly fat:

Embark on a complete body workout

If you are serious about losing belly fat, then you should get lots of exercise as often as you can.

Ideally, you must spend at least 90% of the time that you workout doing high intensity exercises that involve all parts of your body, and not just your abs. These include squats, lunges, dead lifts, presses, push ups and bench presses. Increase the resistance in your workout by using weights. When you work your muscles, you burn more of your fat.

The remaining 10% of your workout time should be used for abs specific exercises. Here is where you can do your crunches and sit ups.

Skip the slow cardio routine

What you need are exercises of various intensities but of short duration that indirectly affect your abs while providing a cardiovascular effect. Examples are wind sprints, hill sprints, stair sprints, jump rope and other forms of training of high intensity.

Diet is very important

Your body will still need to eat food, but instead of being too restrictive, you should maintain a good balance of protein, carbohydrates, and fat.

Go for whole and unprocessed foods like nuts, fruits, vegetables, seeds, organic eggs and lean meats. Incorporate dietary fibre to help clean out your gut thus keeping it lean.

Avoid food containing refined starches, refined sugars, hydrogenated oils (trans fats) and excessive alcohol as they are not easily digested and can clog your colon, making your belly look bigger.

Losing belly fat doesn’t have to be complicated or intense. No wonder pill, contraption, gadget or machine can shed your stored fat safely and permanently.

What you do need is a good diet and a full body exercise program to bring out your abs.
