How to reduce belly fat is always a hot topic. Especially, nowadays!
The summer is fast approaching and your beach holiday is getting closer. Now is the time to blast your core and abs to look trim and toned for the beach.
HERE WE GO THEN, 4 STEPS TO GETTING RID OF YOUR BELLY FAT
1. Exercise for fat loss
Unfortunately, you can’t exercise to lose fat solely on your belly, it just doesn’t work like that. More bad news… For most people, your belly is the first place that fat is stored, and the last place where it leaves.
So you need to exercise for fat loss.
Normal cardio training is good. Interval training is better.
2. Reduce your calories
As we explained in an earlier blog post, you need to be in a calorie deficit each day in order to lose weight. Calculate your BMR, and attempt to have your daily intake of calories as close to this figure as possible.
And remember – complex carbohydrates, lean proteins, and healthy fats. Get rid of all excess sugars, fried foods and other junk. You are not going to get a toned set of abs if you are drinking Coke and eating Mars bars.
3. Perform exercises which focus on your core.
Please, please, please DON’T do sit ups or crunches. THEY ARE A COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME.
Instead, perform exercises such as the plank, V-Sits, the stomach vacuum, and leg raises. These will work your entire abdominal area and will tone and sculpt all of your mid section.
4. Stay consistent
So you are now exercising for fat loss, eating correctly and performing targeted resistance movements. You are doing well. Now, keep it up.
You are not going to see results overnight. So stay consistent You will start to see improvements, but just not immediately. Stick to your exercise routine and maintain a calorie deficit each day. You will slowly get there.
And there we have it, 4 steps to help you reduce your belly fat.
