Wondering how to loose belly fat? Belly fat can be pretty *#&$ stubborn and a bit harder to get rid of, but if you incorporate the following steps, you’ll be looking at a flatter belly in no time. *Note: you will have to work for it! It’s important to do all of these steps, the plan will not work if you only follow 1 step.
- Eat a healthy diet – This is probably the most important step. If you aren’t eating healthy, all the other work you do to loose belly fat will just flop. The closer food is to it’s original form, the better it is for you. So think fresh fruits and vegetables, lean meats, whole grains, etc. Be sure you get enough fiber in your diet to avoid bloating and constipation which will hinder your efforts to loose belly fat.
- Cardio interval training – This is great for losing fat all over your body, including belly fat. You could start out by walking for 1 minute, then running for 1 minute, walk for 1 minute, run for 1 minute and continue this cycle until you have been doing cardio activity for 20 minutes. Doing cardio intervals really makes you sweat and that helps to make yourself feel like you’re actually accomplishing something. Well, at least, that’s what keeps me motivated to do it!
- Abdominal strength training – It’s suggested that you work out your abdominals with strength training moves at least twice per week. Some people choose to do abs every other day, but twice a week will be sufficient. Abs tend to respond better to a high number of reps, like 20. Some people even choose to do each set of ab exercise until failure (or until they cannot perform another rep using proper form).
If you follow these steps for 2 weeks, I can guarantee that you will be on your way to a flatter tummy. Seriously. Take action! Measure your waistline (go ahead and keep the results private!) and follow these steps for just 2 weeks. At the end of those 2 weeks, measure your waistline in the same exact area that you did before you started and you will notice a decrease in the number of inches – even if it’s only 1/2″ – that’s still an improvement. Results will of course vary between individuals.
