In this article I am going to give you 2 pieces of information for losing belly fat:
These techniques will work even if you are in your 40s and think that your belly fat and love handles are the inevitable Middle Age Spread. You probably believe, partly through observation, that no matter what you do you will not be able to shift the fat, even through long hours in the gym.
- An outline for a set of simple yet powerful techniques to lose whatever belly fat you have so that you end up with a flatter belly in as little as 90 days
- A set of 3 motivational tips that will keep you on track for those 90 days
If you want to keep thinking like that then it will stay true for you. Just know that losing belly fat and becoming fitter are actually very easy goals to accomplish and do not require lots of exercise; you just need to build the mindset and practice regularly for the change to bed in.
How can I say this?
I can say this because I am an active guy in his 30s who had to learn a way to get rid of his belly fat. I like to run, rock climb and workout but I never managed to shift the inch of fat that I had around my waist. I am quite slim in build so I did not have a massive mound of fat there; what I did have though was enough that I never had any real definition, and this was frustrating. I was a bit of a paradox: a slim guy who did not have a flat belly. From seeing friends and colleagues though I do not think I was alone in this situation.
Two simple but powerful insights changed my view and ultimately my body:
So what do these points really mean in practice?
- Most of what you eat is actually fine for the condition of your body right now. To change this and have a healthier body you only have to change your diet in small but continuous steps.
- The range of exercises you do and their intensity is more important that the length of time you spend per week in total doing them.
The first point comes from the idea that if you change how you eat and drink too quickly your older eating habits will eventually win out and you will not see any benefit of the change. You will revert, sometimes without consciously noticing, back to a higher sugar and junk food diet.
This idea is worth noting because we hear about many "get thin quick" programs that really only work for a short time. The ideas I have used result in permanent fat loss, but only as long as you maintain them. The key is to push your boundaries slowly but continuously each week to develop a healthier diet.
The second idea refers to the fact that if you keep training the same way you will only train the same muscles and your body will not change shape. This includes you if all you do is run all the time. Spending long hours in the gym will not help you burn more fat, as you may already have realised.
It also refers to research that adding some high intensity interval training workouts to your weekly exercise program helps vary the intensity and focus of your training, and that this has a very big impact on the way your body burns fat.
