What You Need to Know to Lose Belly Fat

If you you want to get rid of some belly fat. and you can’t help but be on the lookout for that magical exercise that will give you flat abs ……you will be disappointed.

All of  the ab crunches in the world won’t make a dent in your belly bulge, as long as you continue with your unhealthy lifestyle. This isn’t a cutting edge discovery. In fact, by now it’s common knowledge that spot reduction is a myth. The magic is found in altering your diet and exercise routine to promote fat loss from your overall body, including—but not limited to—your midsection.

Here’s how to really get rid of that belly fat:

Flat Belly Tip #1: Cut Out Processed Foods

You know how Disneyland has the FastPass tickets that allow you to cut to the front of the ride lines?

Consider processed foods as a FastPass ticket to belly fat.

I wouldn’t be surprised if future studies show that the over-processing, chemical additives and high fructose corn syrup that are pumped into processed food specifically adds fat around your belly.

If you want to lose pounds then stay away from sugars, sodas, chemically altered fats, processed, packaged, fried and preserved foods. 

Flat Belly Tip #2: Eat Fresh, Whole Foods 

Once you’ve cut the garbage out of your diet, fill in the void with fresh foods such as:

  • Green veggies
  • Whole fruit
  • Lean, high quality meat
  • Colorful veggies
  • Whole grains, in moderation

While these foods may seem boring at first, stick with it long enough and you’ll grow to love the unadulterated flavor of real food.

Eating a diet filled with the foods listed above will give your body all the nutrients it needs to shed pounds and lean out.

Flat Belly Tip #3: A Consistent, Challenging Exercise Program

The absolute best way to fight the battle of the belly bulge is with a consistent, challenging exercise program.

  • Consistent: You should exercise 3-5 times each week that are short yet hard, with intervals as opposed to consistency.
  • Challenging: If you want to see results then keep your body guessing with new exercises and varied intensity.

So, up the intensity of your exercise and limit the portions and ingredients of what you put into your body, and the results will make you smile!
