How To Lose Belly FatBy Vince DelMonte
Just about every person wants to lose some excess fat somewhere on their body. Most people are looking to lose belly fat and they want to lose it fast!
Most people spend too many months in any given year overeating and then scrambling at the first sign of warm weather in order to get rid of the fat deposits that have accumulated over time.
The problem most individuals have is that they overlook how difficult it is to lose belly fat. Truth be told, a fat belly is one of the hardest areas to successfully remove fat from because it's made up from what is known as "stubborn" fat.
You're body is physiologically somewhat different when it comes to fat around the abdominal region. You may be asking - What's the reason for this? Well, primarily, it's the first place our body tends to store fat and where body fat is actually needed the most for protection - protection for internal organs and structures.
Hence, your belly fat will do everything it can to hold on and stay where it is. Not exactly what you want to hear in your quest to lose belly fat.
In order to outsmart stubborn belly fat, you will have to work really hard. You most certainly can lose belly fat, but you just have to have realistic expectations about the length you will need to achieve this goal and how much effort you'll need to put in.
How to Lose Belly Fat - The Proper Exercise Routine
First, lets talk about proper exercise to lose belly fat. First of all, you need to hit the weights. When weightlifting, make sure that you are lifting as heavy as you possibly can, because this is what will jack-up your metabolism the highest. You want to go for a 6-10 rep range, because this is most appropriate for metabolic effects.
How to Lose Belly Fat - Don't Neglect Cardio & Proper Nutrition
Second, some cardio done. You don't need to do hours upon hours on end though, focus on doing sprints. In fact, sprint first, then do more steady constant-pace cardio afterwards. This will release fatty acids from your tissue (and mobilize them) and then burn them off during the steady-pace cardio. This type of routine can be far more effective at getting that stubborn fat off your belly than doing a typical cardio session.
Lastly, check your belly fat diet plan. Too many fat or carbohydrates calories will slow down your progress, while protein, generally speaking will help because of the fact the body burns more calories just by digesting it.
However, don't take the protein consumption too far though - there is no need to exceed 1.5 grams of protein per pound of body weight. Fill in the remainder of your calories with carbohydrates before and after your workout period and fat during the other meals/times.
If you are patient with the process and continually push yourself at the gym, there is absolutely no reason why you can't be sporting your own cool set of six-pack abs.
