Excess Abdominal Fat is Not Only Ugly, but Extremely Dangerous to Your Health

THE TRUTH ABOUT SIX PACK ABS

 

The difference between subcutaneous fat and the more deadly "visceral fat"

Although this picture depicts an extremely overweight man, this article applies to dangerous types of fat inside the bodies of both men and women... and this discussion also applies even if you only have a slight amount of excess stomach fat.

THE TRUTH ABOUT SIX PACK ABS

Did you know that the vast majority of people in this day and age have excess abdominal fat?  It's true -- as much as 70% of the population in some "westernized" countries such as the US and Australia are now considered either overweight or obese.  The first thing that most people think of is that their extra abdominal fat is simply ugly, is covering up their abs from being visible, and makes them self conscious about showing off their body.

 

However, what most people don't realize is that excess abdominal fat in particular, is not only ugly, but is also a dangerous risk factor to your health. Scientific research has clearly determined that although it is unhealthy in general to have excess body fat throughout your body, it is also particularly dangerous to have excess abdominal fat.

There are two types of fat that you have in your abdominal area. The first type that covers up your abs from being visible is called subcutaneous fat and lies directly beneath the skin and on top of the abdominal muscles.

The second type of fat that you have in your abdominal area is called visceral fat, and that lies deeper in the abdomen beneath your muscle and surrounding your organs. Visceral fat also plays a role in giving certain men that "beer belly" appearance where their abdomen protrudes excessively but at the same time, also feels sort of hard if you push on it.

Both subcutaneous fat and visceral fat in the abdominal area are serious health risk factors, but science has shown thathaving excessive visceral fat is even more dangerous than subcutaneous fat.  Both types of fat greatly increase your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, sleep apnea, various forms of cancer, and other degenerative diseases.

Excess stomach fat has also been associated in studies with higher levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), an indicator of inflammation within the body that can lead to heart disease and other health issues.

Part of the reason visceral fat is particularly dangerous is that studies show that it releases more inflammatory molecules into your system on a consistent basis.

One of the major reasons that some people accumulate more visceral fat than others can be from a high carbohydrate diet that leads to insulin resistance over time (years of bombarding your system with too much sugars and starches for your body to properly handle the constant excess blood sugar) ... and studies show that high fructose intake particularly from high-fructose corn syrup can be a major contributor to excess visceral fat.

If you care about the quality of your life and your loved ones, reducing your abdominal fat (including reducing visceral fat) should be one of your TOP priorities! There's just no way around it. Besides, a side effect of finally getting rid of all of that excessive abdominal fat is that your stomach will flatten out, and if you lose enough stomach fat, you will be able to visibly see those attractive six pack abs that everyone wants.

So what gets rid of extra abdominal fat, including visceral fat?

Is there actually a REAL solution beyond all of the gimmicks and hype that you see in ads and on commercials for "miracle" fat loss products?

The first thing you must understand is that there is absolutely NO quick fix solution. There are no pills or supplements of any sort that will help you lose your abdominal fat faster. Also, none of the gimmicky ab rockers, rollers, or ab belts will help get rid of abdominal fat either. You can't spot reduce your stomach fat by using any of these worthless contraptions. It simply doesn't work that way.

The only solution to consistently lose your abdominal fat and keep it off for good is to combine a sound nutritious diet full of unprocessed natural foods with a properly designed strategic exercise program that stimulates the necessary hormonal and metabolic response within your body. Both your food intake as well as your training program are important if you are to get this right.

I've actually even seen a particular study that divided thousands of participants into a diet-only group and an exercise & diet combined group. While both groups in this study made good progress, the diet-only group lost significantly LESS abdominal fat than the diet & exercise combined group.

Now the important thing to realize is that just any old exercise program will not necessarily do the trick. The majority of people that attempt getting into a good exercise routine are NOT working out effectively enough to really stimulate the loss of stubborn abdominal fat. I see this every day at the gym.

Most people will do your typical boring ineffective cardio routines, throw in a little outdated body-part style weight training, and pump away with some crunches and side bends, and think that they are doing something useful for reducing their abdominal fat. Then they become frustrated after weeks or months of no results and wonder where they went wrong.

Well, the good news is that I've spent over a decade researching this topic, analyzing the science, and applying it "in the trenches" with myself as well as thousands of my clients from all over the world to see what works to really stimulate abdominal fat loss.

From my research, two of the most important aspects to getting rid of visceral fat are:

1. The use of high intensity forms of exercise and full-body resistance training.  Low intensity cardio exercise simply isn't as effective for removing visceral fat in particular.  High intensity exercise such as interval training or full-body weight training are very effective at helping to improve your body's ability to manage glucose and increases insulin sensitivity, a crucial step in removing visceral fat.  These types of high intensity exercise routines are also very effective at increasing your fat-burning hormones and creating a hormonal environment conducive to burning off abdominal fat, including visceral fat.

2.  In addition, it's vitally important to get blood sugar under control to help restore insulin sensitivity through the right nutrition.  This means greatly reducing sugars and refined starches in your diet (including fully eliminating any use of harmful high fructose corn syrup!), and focusing more of your diet on healthy fats (such as avocados, nuts, seeds, coconut fat, olive oil, free-range eggs, fatty fish and fish oils, etc), as well as increasing protein and fiber intake.  The standard diet recommended by the government, which contains an unnaturally high grain intake is NOT conducive to controlling blood sugar and reducing visceral fat!

Reducing grain-based foods in your diet and getting more of your carbs from veggies and high fiber fruits such as berries can go a long way to helping to solve this problem.

Learn the Truth about Losing Your Stomach Fat Permanently

program for losing abdominal fatYou may not realize this, but the entire basis of my Truth about Six Pack Abs program is NOT about abs exercises... instead, it's actually about detailed strategies for both nutrition and exercise that maximize your ability to lose abdominal fat.  The entire solution... all of the nutritional strategies, as well as training sequences, exercise combinations, and more have all been compiled in my Truth About Six Pack Abs Program in order to help you to burn stomach fat faster.

Keep in mind that the whole point of this program is NOT abdominal exercises (that is only a very small portion of it). The main point of this program is showing you the absolute most effective nutritional strategies for losing your stubborn abdominal fat, and maximizing a fat-burning hormonal environment in your body so you can get rid of that dangerous health risk, as well as get a flatter more defined midsection.

If you follow the guidelines, you WILL lose your belly fat that has been plaguing you for years. This is not guesswork... it is a proven system that works time and time again for all of my clients on every corner of the globe that actually apply these strategies. If you apply it, the results will come. It's really that simple.

One of the main reasons that most people fail in their fitness goals is that they have good intentions at first to adopt a new lifestyle, yet after a few weeks or months, they abandon their good intentions and slip right back into their old bad habits that gave them the excess body fat in the first place.

I want to help you succeed in finally getting rid of that extra abdominal fat that is not only UGLY, but also DANGEROUS. A lot of people have emailed my support team with questions about whether they need any special equipment for these workouts, if they're too old or too young for this program, if the diet tips will apply to them, etc.  I've made a page that should answer all of your questions...

Fat Burning Furnace Review Does This Popular Program Work?

Title: Fat Burning Furnace
Website: www.fatburningfurnace.com
Author: Rob Poulos
Price: $39.97 Regular / 69.97 Deluxe
Guarantee: 60 Day Satisfaction Guarantee

Fat Burning Furnace is the very popular new fitness program written by Rob Poulos that claims to allow you to shed quite a bit of fat while exercising only 45 minutes per week. You're probably wondering what's behind the closed doors and whether or not this exercise and diet plan is worth your time and money.

We picked up a copy and checked it out thoroughly. Let's take a look and see what Fat Burning Furnace is all about...

Basic Concepts
Fat Burning Furnace Review

The basic concept behind the Fat Burning Furnace theory is that of boosting your metabolism by building lean muscle through short bursts of interval type training. At the beginning of his book, Rob Poulos takes a stance against the typical cardio workout that 95% of the population seems to pursue, and is also perpetrated by various fitness experts and gyms. Poulos states that this method of exercise is not nearly as effective at burning fat quickly as short bursts of intense training - also known as interval training.

Instead, Poulos asks to to leave behind your boring old cardio routine in favor of a shorter but more intense workout. In fact, this workout will only take you about 20 minutes around three times a week.

The Workouts
Fat Burning Furnace Review


The workouts outlined by Poulos center around circuit weight training. Now, don't let that scare you off. Poulos goes into detail about how this will NOT make you look overly muscled. Being a woman, I know that I want to look fit but I don't want to look like a bodybuilder. However, as the author points out, that won't happen that since women don't have the testosterone required to build muscle. This workout will assist both men and women achieve lean, muscluar physiques.

This picture is an actual screenshot of the .pdf ebook showing 2 of several pages of exercise demonstrations accompanied by explanation and workout plans.

The Theory Behind It All
Fat Burning Furnace Review

The theory behind these short interval weight training routines is this: When you lift a weight to 100% (also called muscle failure - the point where you just can't lift it again) you will cause your body to have to expend quite a bit of energy repairing that muscle. This will take a day or two, and this is why your body will still be burning a lot of calories even a day or two after your workout. (You're not injuring yourself, just breaking down tissue so it can be rebuilt much stronger the next time.)

Meanwhile, by adding lean muscle you're also increasing your metabolic rate to the tune of about 50 calories per pound of muscle every hour. This is because your body must work harder to maintain muscle tissue than it does to maintain fat cells. By having more muscle you'll be burning more calories around the clock--even if you're just sitting around! This is why Poulos claims that your workout routine will help you burn calories for up to 72 hours after your workout and beyond. And it's true - this is hard scientific fact backed up by quite a bit of research.

Nutrition
Fat Burning Furnace Review

This wouldn't be a complete fitness guide if it didn't have a good section on nutrition. Here Poulos goes into detail about how when your body gets hungry it's actually craving micronutrients - vitamins and minerals. By satisfying these cravings you'll automatically eat much less. It's not really rocket science, but Poulos presents these facts in a very easy to follow manner that will have you going "Why didn't I think of that?"

The book provides in-depth detail about what foods to eat, what to avoid, and also gives you some great sample eating plans. The author does not skimp on information here.

Poulos also supports the idea of eating more frequently throughout the day but in slightly smaller quantities in order to keep your metabolism burning. This is a concept that absolutely works, and I urge anyone to adopt.

Overall
Fat Burning Furnace Review

This fitness package is a great overall plan to build a healthy body and boost your cardiovascular health. It's a very fun concept, especially for those who are tired of boring cardio workouts such as jogging and riding the stationary bike - and most of the time aren't seeing any results anyway!

The guide has good photos to demonstrate the exercises, although you might want to pick up a book from the library on how to properly perform all exercises described by Poulos. This was the only area of the book we found a bit lacking. Make sure you're doing the exercises right to avoid injury.

There are tons of testimonials and user experience stories that show this program can definitely be succesful if followed.

If you're interested in really getting into something challenging and fun, and seeing your body transform before your eyes, then I definitely suggest checking out this ebook. It's a quality workout plan that should give great results for those who put in the time and effort.

Isabel De Los Rios The Diet Solution Review: Scam Or Legit?

19Oct/111

Review of The Diet Solution Our Top-Ranked Weight Loss Program

Our top-ranked weight loss plan, The Diet Solution, bills itself as "The #1 Honest and All Natural Diet & Nutrition Program on the Internet." Unlike many "lose weight fast," fad diets, The Diet Solution was created by a certified nutritionist and exercise specialist.

Isabel De Los Rios, the developer of The Diet Solution, has created a weight-loss system that is individualized based on your metabolic type. Taking a brief "metabolic quiz" is one of your first steps in the program, and will tell you if you have a "carbs" metabolism, a "protein" metabolism or a mixture of the two.

Your "metabolic type" determines which specific foods you should eat—and in which quantities—to lose weight quickly and safely. There is no calorie counting, though you will have to measure food portions. The Diet Solution outlines how many servings of healthy carbs, fats and proteins you should eat per meal, and encourages you to eat several small meals a day so you never become ravenously hungry.

You're provided with food lists that offer you a wide range of protein, fat and carb selections, so even picky eaters should be able to create appealing, delicious meal plans. Because it emphasizes a long-term lifestyle change, the system is built around healthful food choices—not prepackaged, over-processed "diet foods."

The Diet Solution is a comprehensive weight loss program that includes

  • A "metabolic type" test

  • Personalized lists of suggested foods and serving sizes

  • A variety of easy-to-prepare recipes

  • "Made-For-You" meal plans

  • Convenient shopping lists

  • Newsletters

  • Fitness tips

  • Responsive online support

  • A supportive member community

The system also includes "14 Days to a Sexy New Body," a more intense version of The Diet Solution program which is designed to help you lose up to 10 pounds in the first week. There are also regularly published newsletters and FAQs.

The publisher typically offers several free bonuses with purchase, and there is a money-back satisfaction guarantee.

Although all the elements of The Diet Solution are available as instant downloads you can print out, the biggest advantage of this weight loss system is its interactive online community. The members-only site allows you to upload your "before" photo, ask questions, share recipes, keep an online food journal, and share accountability with other members and Isabel De Los Rios. Members seem enthusiastic and supportive of each other.

Strengths of The Diet Solution

  • A comprehensive, easy-to-use Web site creates a sense of community and accountability, and makes the program easy to follow.

  • By following The Diet Solution's meal plans and recipes, you're likely to save money versus buying "convenience" foods or home-delivered "diet" meals.

  • The program's developer, Isabel De Los Rios, is active and engaged with members, and regularly answers member questions online.

  • The online version of The Diet Solution includes a wealth of information for members, including a members-only forum, newsletters, and FAQs.

  • The system is also available in PDF format.

Weaknesses of The Diet Solution

  • If you eat take-out or microwave dinners for most meals, it may seem like a burden to cook from scratch.

  • Keeping a food journal may seem inconvenient at first, but an online version of the food journal makes this task easier.

  • While De Los Rios encourages members to be physically active, the emphasis of The Diet Solution is definitely on healthful, appropriate eating for your metabolic type.

  • A few members have reported issues when using the online version of The Diet Solution when browsing the site with Internet Explorer 7.

The Diet Solution Program: Our #1 Choice

Clear instructions and "made-for-you" meal plans, plus the "14 Days to a Sexy New Body" jump-start version of the program, make The Diet Solution easy to follow in the short term.

A supportive online community, good customer service, and flexible shopping and menu-planning options should make The Diet Solution easy to stick to in the log term.

Many members of The Diet Solution online community report that this weight loss program produces results—in some cases, dramatic results. Some members report significant health improvements in addition to weight loss.

Ms. De Los Rios and her representatives are available and engaged in the online version of the program.

Ab Belt Reviews-Are You Too Overweight For The Slendertone Ab Toner?

Just about anyone can get stronger, sexier toned abs with a Slendertone Flex Belt toning program. Although an excellent ab toning machine, your final results will largely depend on two important factors:Are You Out Of Shape?If you're a senior citizen, busy executive, casual exerciser, new mom, or have physical difficulties, the ab toning belt is perfect for you.. If you want firmer, stronger abs, regardless of the shape you're in, you will benefit from working out with this abdominal exercise machine. The ab belt was not designed, however, to be a magic pill for weight loss and will not melt away fat without supplementary diet and exercise. Even if you're carrying a few extra pounds, you can still get great abs with the ab toning belt. But, you should consider complimenting your ab routine with a good fat-burning workout like the one you get from the Ab Circle Pro. The ab toning belt will tone and firm and your abdominals, but will never get shown off if they're hidden by layers of belly fat.Your ExpectationsEliminating the need for strenuous sit-ups and crunches is one of the Slendertone Flex Belt's main purposes. Fitting an extremely effective ab workout into anyone's lifestyle is what it was designed for, and to do it in the shortest amount of time possible. However, if you're a seasoned athlete, weightlifter, or bodybuilder... you already live in a gym and probably already have great abs. Regardless, your well-developed core can still benefit from using the ab toning belt. With varying levels of intensity, the Flex Belt is ideal for seasoned athletes, as well as for the average person wanting to start exercising or take their workout to the next level. With the Flex Belt, you can continue your ab training outside of the gym by wearing it under your regular clothes, so your abs are constantly getting a workout. Continue to strengthen and tone your abs by wearing it while you go about your day.

An innovative ab toning machine, the Slendertone Flex Belt looks much like a weight lifting belt and is worn around the waist. The ab toning belt may be new, but its highly effective technology isn't.. Physical therapists use Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS), or Electrical Muscle Stimulation, to treat patients that cannot move on their own. EMS technology has been available for decades, and is widely practiced.With extremely effective EMS technology, the ab toning belt will arduously sculpt and chisel your abs into a strong and shapely mid section with an exercise routine that won't interrupt your lifestyle. People at all fitness levels can benefit from a workout routine that includes the Slendertone Flex Belt, and those that are just starting out or are ready to take their exercise program to the next level will benefit the most.

Appetite Suppressant Diet Eat The Right Foods To Curb Your Hunger

Did you know that you can structure the way you eat to in fact have an appetite suppressant diet? You don't have to take potions or pills in order to curb your hunger. You just have to eat the right foods at the right times. That, in fact, is the key to the appetite suppressant diet.

Processed foods tend to be high in refined carbohydrates and low in fiber. When you eat a donut or drink a soda, you will have dramatic swings in your blood sugar levels. This causes a hunger spike. So, while you may grab a candy bar from the vending machine in the middle of the afternoon to curb a hunger pang, you may actually be causing yourself to become hungrier shortly thereafter.

If you have common nutritional deficiencies, these problems become worse. Did you know that virtually all Americans are deficient in zinc, vitamin D, various B vitamins, magnesium and other important nutrients? People have these deficiencies as a result of eating the wrong mix of foods. But, most people with these deficiencies satisfy their hunger with more of the bad foods, making the problem even worse.

So what should you eat on an appetite suppressant diet? What you want to do is get your calories from whole foods. In other words, shop around the outside of the grocery store and don't go down the middle isles.

Aviod all refined carbohydrates such as white bread, rice, flour, high fructose corn syrup, sugars, tortillas, and cereals for a month and see how the appetite suppressant diet changes your hunger patterns.

This does not mean that you have to go on a low-carb diet. You are still permitted to have the carbohydrates found in most fruits and vegetables in unlimited quantities.

Plan to eat a salad of leafy greens each day. You can use an olive oil or vinegar based dressing. Add meats such as chicken or grilled salmon to make it a meal.

When you just need something to munch on, try pickles. An entire jar of pickles has only 50 calories in it.

An apple a day keeps the diet away. Their bulky fiber makes apples great appetite suppressant diet foods.

When you start to add a variety of fruits and vegetables to your diet, you will also get the variety of vitamins and minerals you need. As you correct your nutritional deficits, you will notice your hunger diminishes.

Finally, you should start to drink a good amount of water each day. Men should have 13 cups (8 ounces) of water based liquids each day while women should shoot for 9 cups. If you don't like plain water, iced tea, sugar free punch mixes, and other drinks count. But, soda has a dehydrating effect which is the exact opposite of what you want, so it doesn't count.

It is possible to have an appetite suppressant diet. It just means filling your pantry and refrigerator with foods that are good for you rather than going for the quick and easy solution of processed foods high in refined carbohydrates.

Grapefruit Diet – Pros and Cons

Grapefruit Diet, also known as the Hollywood Diet or Mayo Diet, has long history in the United States. It has existed since 1930 and has been known as a fast weight loss method up until now with many variations and the only essential thing that can not be changed is half serving of grapefruit before every meal. Grapefruit were claimed to have fat burning properties, and with the diet encouraging meat intake, these combination of high cholesterol foods with grapefruit seems to burn fat faster.

The basic of the diet itself has been identified as low carbohydrate and protein diet with the averages of 800 to 1000 calories per day. With less than 1000 calories per day diet, most people will still loose weight even without grapefruit consumption, but how the half serving of grapefruit before each meal boost the weight loss process is still unknown. Notes that up until now, no scientific studies have manage to prove grapefruit's power to burn fat.

These are a sample of meal plans based on grapefruit diet:
Breakfast
1. Half serving of grapefruit or 4 oz unsweetened grapefruit juice
2. Two eggs, any style of cooking.
3. Two slice of bacon, cooked medium.
4. You can also add black coffee.

Lunch
1. Half serving of grapefruit or 4 oz unsweetened grapefruit juice.
2. Salad, any type of dressing, any size.
3. Meat, any type, unlimited amount.

Dinner
1. Half serving of grapefruit or 4 oz unsweetened grapefruit juice.
2. Meat, any type, unlimited amount.
3. Any red or green vegetable cooked with seasoning or a salad.
4. A cup of coffee or tea.

Bedtime snack
8 ounces of skim milk with sweetener, the alternative is a glass of tomato juice.
No snack between meals allowed.

Pros
1. It consists of 12 diet days with 2 off diet days, so you have 2 days to eat whatever you want.
2. The program offer pretty quick weight loss: 18 pounds in first 18 days.
3. For those who doesn't like the idea of going to gym, this program have no instruction whatsoever regarding exercise or workout.
4. Affordable and simple.

Cons
1. It is not healthy to eat too much acidic citrus fruit all throughout the day for long periods. It will increase the acidity level in your stomach and increasing the probability to get a sore stomach, gastritis or even ulcerous diseases. If you suffer any of this or other digestive tract ailments, you should stop consuming any acid foods like grapefruit, lemons, or oranges.
2. The program cuts out things that needed in a balanced diet, such as carbohydrates.
3. The limited foods varieties restrict you to improve your eating habits, and it can cause boredom, monotony, and taste fatigue.
4. You will regain weight as soon as you quit the diet.
5. Unlike other citric fruits, grapefruits are known for their interactions with some drugs like felodipine, a drug used to control hypertension. Recent studies show that felodipine in combination with grapefruit juice can cause toxic effects.

6. I you starting this diet, monitor how are you feeling every day, there are report that some persons experienced runs in the beginning of the program, and this can leads to dehydration if not treated quickly.
7. There are opinions that grapefruit inhibits the insulin production of the pancreas. If you suffer from diabetes, you may even get to coma because the insulin level decreases suddenly.
8. This is a list of drugs that can lead to unpredictable and hazardous if combined with grapefruit juice:
• Statins (Cholesterol Drugs): lovastatin (Mevacor), atorvastatin Lipitor, Simvastatin Zocor, simvastatin/ezetimibe Vytorin
• Antihistamines: Ebastine, Seldane
• Calcium Channel Blockers (Blood Pressure Drugs): nimodipine (Nimotop), Felodipine (Nitrendipine, Plendil), Pranidipine, nisoldipine (Sular), nicardipine (Cardene), verapamil (Verelan)
• Psychiatric Medications: buspirone (Buspar), triazolam (Halcion), carbamazepine (Tegretol), diazepam (Valium), midazolam (Versed), sertraline (Zoloft)
• Intestinal Medications: cisapride, taken off the U.S. market (Propulsid)
• Immune Suppressants: cyclosporine (Neoral), (tacrolimus) Prograf
• Pain Medications: Methadone
• Impotence Drug (erectile dysfunction): sildenafil (Viagra)
• Ant-HIV medication : saquinavir (Invirase)
• Antiarrhythmics: amiodarone (Cordarone)
Note that you don't have to understand all of these drugs, simply consult with your doctor before if you plan to start this diet.

Conclusion
It's okay to starting grapefruit diet if you just aim to look leaner in your wedding or your friend's party, but with so many downfall and side effects, it's not advised to do this in long term. There are people that claim to do this for years with good result, but you should not try your luck just for a few pounds weight loss, there are many weight loss programs out there that offer healthy long term solution as well as quick result. But if you really want to try this, remember to consult your doctor if any bad symptoms occurs and before starting the program.

Are you confused with streams and streams of weight loss programs that never suit you?Diets that work provide guide on how to choose your diet program wisely and efficiently as well as selected weight loss program to be considered.

THE DIET SOLUTION-How to Lose Belly Fat in 4 Simple Steps

 

 

 

 

DIET SOLUTION- Lose Belly Fat in 4 Simple Steps

Embarrassment is not the worst part of having a flabby midsection. That spare tire around you tummy can increase your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes (yikes!). Thankfully, you don’t need a complicated diet plan to learn how to lose belly fat. Stomach flab may be stubborn, but it’s no match for proper nutrition, hydration, exercise, and a can-do attitude.

Believe in Yourself

The way you feel about your ability to lose weight will play a major role in your success. If you’re plagued with self-doubt and negativity, you won’t see the point of sticking it out when things get tough. In order to achieve your weight loss goal, you must truly believe you have what it takes.

The Diet Solution teaches you losing weight is not just about vanity; it’s also about living healthy and feeling your best everyday. One thing that will help keep you in the right frame of mind is to think of your fat burning journey as a lifestyle change rather than a diet. If you focus on healthy living instead of dieting, you’ll maintain momentum and it will be easier to shut down those negative feelings.

Eat Nutritiously

Eating a healthy diet will keep your metabolism operating properly so you burn stomach fat more effectively. If your eating plan lacks essential carbohydrates, protein, healthy fat, vitamins and minerals, it’s not nutritious. To ensure you get adequate amounts of all of these nutrients, incorporate a variety of healthy, whole foods like vegetables, fruits, poultry, lean meats, raw nuts, legumes, beans, seeds and whole eggs into your diet. The Diet Solution show you how step by step to lose weight and burn fat.

As for counting calories to lose weight, I don’t do it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very conscious about what I put into my body. However, I refuse to spend my life keeping tabs on every crumb I swallow. When I get hungry, I’m going to eat—and trust me, I won’t be thinking about calories while I’m doing it.

I’m living proof that if you eat the right foods, and stick to reasonable portion sizes, you can lose belly fat without counting a single calorie.

Drink Plenty of Water

Water is often overlooked in nutrition plans. But this element is crucial for burning fat and maintaining proper health. Water helps metabolize stored fat and rids the body of excess fat and toxins. Water also prevent bloating and constipation, and helps curb your appetite.

Most people underestimate how much water they need, so they don’t stay properly hydrated. For optimum health, drink half of your body weight in ounces of water daily. For example, if you weigh 200 pounds, you should drink at least 100 ounces of water per day.

Get Up and Exercise

When you start your healthy eating plan, you’ll automatically reduce your caloric intake and start to shed some weight. However, unless you add exercise into the mix, your metabolism will eventually slow down and ultimately reduce your ability to burn stomach fat.

There’s no way to target specific areas for fat loss. Crunches, sit-ups and other ab-specific exercises only work to tone the muscles. The only way to get the svelte tummy of your dreams is to burn the fat off. If you don’t, any muscle tone you achieve via abdominal exercises will be buried under the flab.

If you combine 30 to 60 minutes of moderate to intense cardiovascular activity with proper nutrition, the fat around your belly will melt like butter. If you’re out of shape, doing a 30 to 60 minute workout may be too much at first. It’s okay if you start off exercising for 5 or 10 minutes. Simply work your way up as your fitness level improves.

Don’t try to change your lifestyle overnight; Start by making small tweaks. In the beginning, you might try drinking more water, increasing your fresh vegetable intake and exercising three days a week. Once you get used to these adjustments, gradually build on them. Remember, small steps can lead to big results.

Sitting and wishing won’t help you get the trim tummy you’ve always wanted. Let the Diet Solution Program teach you how to lose belly fat and improve your overall health.
