If you are one of the millions of Americans who carry your extra pounds above your waist, you are at risk for heart attack, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure, and bad blood chemistry. It is imperative that you begin a belly fat loss program to reduce this dangerous condition.
When you begin to lose weight, one of the first places you lose fat is in the stomach. So pick a diet that fits your lifestyle and one that you can follow. Low carb, low fat, Mediterranean, vegetarian or what ever diet meets your needs and will help you lose stomach fat.
Have three tips which will help you speed up your belly fat loss.
#1 Eat two servings of vegetables at every meal. They are full of vitamins and fiber. They full you up and help your body burn more fat because they are lower in calories. My favorite veggies are green peppers, celery, radishes, tomatoes(I know it’s not a vegetable), broccoli, and spinach. Many serious athletes snack on green peppers all the time.
#2 A new study has shown that 20 minute interval workout sessions burn more calories then a 60 minute jog at a consistent pace. What are interval training sessions? They are workouts where you vary the intensity of the workout. Sometimes you are going at full speed and other times you are working at reduced speeds or resting. This mimics sports and you continue to burn fat long after the workout is over.
#3 Doing exercises that concentrate on the stomach muscles will not speed up that belly fat loss. Sit ups, crunches, and ab machines will not increase the speed of belly fat loss. I have learned from many trainers that jumping rope will help you lose those pesky pounds around the midsection. Doing different routines for 10 minutes will burn more calories then a 30 minute jog.
So find the diet that matches your lifestyle and start working smarter not harder and improve your over all health. Following my 3 Best Tips will help you to start losing the belly fat. Fat around the waist is a dangerous condition that requires you immediate attention. Visit your family doctor and get your physical condition check out. Discuss with him or her your plan for weight loss. Have a complete blood work up done, so you will have a baseline to compare to later.
Remember this is a long term project. You have to change your lifestyle. Your old one hasn’t worked very well for you, has it? Continue to press on. Join a support group if you have to. Find the will power to win, your life may depend on it. Your family is depending on you. Tell yourself anything that will keep you focused on your goals. Reduce your belly fat and reduce your health risks.
