The best way to lose belly fat isn’t what you think…
In fact, it isn’t eating 1,000 calories per day and it sure isn’t doing a ton of cardio. The best and more enjoyable way is more effective and we are going to lay out the true solution in this post today for you.
Why you always struggle to lose belly fat?
The problem I see often is people trying to lose belly fat like it was possible to lose fat in one just spot. They would do 100’s of crunches a day but that will only tone muscles underneath your belly fat. The truth is, unless the weight comes off, you’re not going to have that toned belly you desired.Your First Steps Should Be:
- Your first step is to start changing the bad habits. A good nutrition will help you to lose weight and improve your health condition.
- Start by removing sugars and sugary beverages. Added sugar is extremely unhealthy. Numerous studies have shown that excess sugar, mostly due to the large amounts of fructose, can lead to increased accumulation of fat in the belly. This not include natural sugar from fruits.
- Eat healthy foods. People tend to say that eating healthy is the typically higher cost, BUT, this is wrong!
- Eat more protein. Protein may be the best long-term strategy to reduce belly fat. Protein is the most important macro nutrient when it comes to losing weight. It has been shown to reduce cravings by 60%, boost metabolism by 80-100 calories per day and help you eat up to 441 fewer calories per day.
- Choose Wisely Where You Get Your Carbs. Changing simple carbs with complex carbs is the best way. Here’s the deal: at least 80% of your total carb intake should come from complex sources. A ideal list of complex carbs are:
- Green vegetables
- Whole grains and foods made from them, such as oatmeal, pasta, and whole-grain breads
- Starchy vegetables such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, and pumpkin
- Beans, lentils, and peas
Low-carb diets also lead to quick reductions in water weight, which gives people near instant results… a major difference on the scale is often seen within a few days. Just avoiding the refined carbs (white breads, pastas, etc) should be sufficient, especially if you keep your protein high.
- Make Sure You Eat Plenty Of Fiber. Fiber can lower blood sugar, cut cholesterol, and may even prevent colon cancer and help you avoid hemorrhoids. Women should get about 25 grams a day, but the average person gets just 15 grams a day. Eating fiber-rich whole foods, like vegetables leafy greens, which contain high doses of viscous fibers that can have an effect on your weight. These are fibers that bind water and form a thick gel that “sits” in the stomach. The substance slows digestion and nutrient absorption, which creates a feeling of fullness.
Viscous fiber, therefore, acts as an appetite suppressant.
- Make Sure You Train Properly. This means, you need to have a strict schedule that involves a rigorous strength training. By strength training, I’m talking about compound movements like heavy squatting and dead-lifts.
- Do High Intense Interval Training Workouts (HIIT). Besides strength training, you need to do aerobic exercises. However this does not mean do 30 minutes on a treadmill at a moderate pace.
- The problem with traditional cardio is you need more time to burn calories and with HIIT training workouts you burn more calories and fat more efficiently. When you perform cardio at your maximum intensity for a short period of time, your body immediately depletes the energy stored, which then requires it to tap into its reserves.
- In this case, the energy reserved include stored glycogen, blood glucose, free fatty acids, and intramuscular fat which body fat is converted into energy.
