How to lose belly fat is the most asked about area of the body when it comes to fat loss. Next is the hips and butt. Unfortunately, you cannot spot lose fat. Losing fat in your belly will occur proportionately with the rest of your body – unless overriding genetics skew the even fat loss.
There are things you can do to make your belly look better and skinnier. By tightening the muscles of the stomach – abdominals or abs and obliques, you will regain a healthier, better looking shape. A healthy posture of stand / sit straight, shoulders back, gut sucked in (gently tightening stomach muscles) will also slenderize your mid-section.
To lose fat you must cut back your caloric intake. Cut back no more than 500 calories a day or your body will go into “starvation mode” and slow your metabolism to store fat for a potential famine (the body anticipates this). This is a survival mechanism that saves lives during famines, fortunately famine in “advanced” societies are rare. If you are at 2500 calories a day, cut back to 2000 calories. After a couple weeks you may cut calories gradually till you find your ultimate fat loss calorie zone.
The other angle of attack to lose weight / lose fat is to increase your metabolic rate. Your metabolic rate determines how many calories you burn even when at rest, even during sleep. Exercise is good for this. To achieve an all day long metabolic rate increase, you need to push your muscles past their comfort zones. Weight lifting, body weight exercises and sprinting all increase your body’s metabolic rate. Sprinting or wind sprints also improve lung and heart efficiency. The body was not designed for running long periods of time. You will have greater health and weight loss benefits doing sprints.
The third angle of attack is eating right. Not what the willy nilly “doctors” and “experts” tell you to eat. Do you know the average life expectancy of a doctor? It is about 20 years shorter than average – going to take their advice? Remember eggs are bad – wait, eggs are good, fats and butter are bad vegetable oils and margarine are better, wait vegetable oils and margarine are hydrogenated oils – cause weight gain, inflammation, heart disease… Notice how the food pyramid keeps changing? It depends who is funding the study. What your body needs to thrive and heal is protein, fat and fruit and vegetable based carbohydrates – not grains and breads. Think cave man diet – yep, back to basics not today’s processed “foods” that are completely void of any nutrition. If it comes in a box, a bag or a can – chances are there is little nutrition left.
Stay away from junk foods like cakes, donuts, candy, soda pop, chips… Besides the nutritionless high calorie content, chemicals and HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) disrupts your body’s natural hormonal balance and causes weight gain. Preservatives and flavor enhancers (MSG) fake sugars(Aspartame), fake fats(hydrogenated oils)and soy products all cause hormonal imbalances and increase your appetite even when your stomach is full. Avoid these and weight loss will be much easier.
