Is this you? Are you the one that is desperately shouting “summer is here and I need to burn fat belly?” Relax, there is still hope and you can do it. Keep a few basics in mind and you will get there! Read on and get all the tips.
If you need to burn fat belly, you have to realize that you will have to lose weight all over. A big midline is normally part of a body that has quite a few extra pounds to get rid off. So, sorry, you will have to diet and do exercise. Those six pack abs will only come with a little work.
So if you need to burn fat belly, you will have to follow the following plan:
* A good healthy diet
* Cardio exercises
* Strength exercise
1. A good healthy diet:
Any weight loss plan or slimming plan needs to start with a healthy balanced diet. You really must not give in to the temptation to go onto one of the many fad diets doing the rounds. With a fad diet you lose mostly water and some muscle, but very little fat and as soon as you eat normally again, you will put all the weight back on.
You notice that I say you will also lose some muscle with a fad diet. This is really bad news if you want to get rid of a big tummy. You need those muscles to keep everything in place. If the muscles in your tummy area are not toned, you can even be skinny and you will still have a fat belly!
OK, so we know you have to go onto a good diet. There really are many available, and I think it is a good idea if I give you some pointers on what to look for:
First of all, you must not eat too little. If you are going to train those abs, you will need the energy to do it with. This energy has to come from the food you eat. So your diet needs to include a little carbs for energy.
Next you have to take your own preferences into account. If you have to eat a lot of food on a diet that you hate, there is no way that you will be able to stick to the diet. Starting with such a diet will only be a waste of time!
It is also necessary to take your lifestyle into consideration. Take into account the time you have available to prepare your meals and if you frequently eat out. Your eating plan must be able to fit into your lifestyle if you are going to be able to keep it up.
2. Cardio exercises:
First of all, it is important to warm up before you do any exercise. So start your cardio slow until your heartbeat has increased a little and then push more. Any exercise will do here, as your main objective is to increase your heartbeat and to start using some calories. You can go for a brisk walk, or jogging, swimming, the min-trampoline and even dancing will do!
3. Strength exercises:
Here is where you will do the specific exercises to target your abs. Always make sure you do the exercises controlled so that you do not use momentum to help you. Control is what will help you burn fat belly.
Keep in mind that to keep your skeleton correct and safe, you will have to strengthen all your muscles and not only your abs.
Stretching is usually the most neglected part of people’s routines. What you have to realize is that stretching does not only prevent damage to your muscles, but it actually helps with the slimming process. Stretching makes your muscles supple and give you that sculpted look. So, do not skimp on your stretches if you want to burn fat belly.
