Now, I won’t lie: you can usually find me surfing around “Yahoo! Answers,” weight loss forums, and other places trying to help people meet their physical goals, but do you know how many times I hear the same question? “Can someone help my learn how to lose belly fat?” I find it sad that the waistline of the world is growing. But what I find more disappointing is that there is way too much information out there that isn’t giving people the truth about losing their stomach. Instead, it hurts them…
The ABC’s of How to Lose Tons of Belly Fat
The ABC’s of how to lose belly fat is quick, easy, and can be started right away so that you don’t have to wait on the results two, or three weeks from now (that most of the “popular” information states). So let’s get down with some general “theory” of belly fat loss.
- Chances are that if you’re looking to lose belly fat, you’re more than likely not really concerned about the fat itself. However, this should not be the case because the worst fat to have is, in fact, belly fat. More on that later.
- Like the majority of people I talk to aren’t concerned with the fat (primarily) you’re probably more concerned with the physical appeal of losing your stomach. This is understandable! The abs tie the entire body together, and having a protruding stomach is really unattractive to many. (Sometimes it’s not always the case.)
- Also like many of the people I talk to, you’ve probably been fed the basic “fad” information that works a little but is still not as effective as it could be. This is what the ABC’s are all about: helping you effectively lose belly fat quick.
Ask anyone from the popular weight loss forums how to lose belly fat quickly, and they’ll give you some promise like:
There are a lot of ways to lose belly fat quickly (wrong) and any one of them will work (wrong). All you have to do is the following:
- At Least 30 Minutes of Cardiovascular exercise a day.
- Crunches, Oblique Crunches, and Use Ab Machines.
- Eat 4 – 6 Low Calorie, Small meals a day.
If you do these things, you will get the sculpted abs you want.
First, let me tell you that I have absolutely nothing against that advice. It’s decent enough advice and works for thousands of people every day. However, for the majority of those people; they suffer through long, grueling hours of cardio, crunches that are only half effective, and they starve their body of much needed nutrients all for a pound every two days (maybe even that).
The following ABC’s aren’t for the faint of heart. They’re intense, but highly effective. If you’ve ever wanted to know how to lose belly fat on a large scale, making your efforts exponentially easier each and every workout, then remember these ABC’s. Print them out if you have to.
“A” is for: ACTIVITY
Like many people, you’re probably extremely busy throughout your day. Maybe you’ve got kids, school, job, recreational activities, and friends who suck every minute out of your day. I understand that you cannot, at all, focus on getting a workout in. This is a big problem that I’ve had to think of a plan of attack for. And I found it.
In a day and age when we don’t go out into our fields and plow, or we don’t go down to the well and get water to haul back toward the house, we need to find ways to keep our metabolism high throughout the day. Our lives circulate around sitting at a computer, at a desk, or just standing around. To combat that, you need to remain active.
To do this, get into your head that “3 minutes of each hour, I am going to do some sort of bodyweight exercise (like pushups, lunges, body squats, dips, or any sort of full body dumbbell exercise – if you don’t have dumbbells, you can use a filled water jug 😉 – no excuses! If you want this, you’ve got to be innovative and dedicated!).” You might look a little foolish, but at least within a few days you won’t be fat. Let people laugh now, then let them stare later.
Write up a Monday, Wednesday, and Friday plan, and stick to it every other weekday. Write down two or three body-weight exercises that you can do every hour (different exercises every other hour, preferably). Do these every hour from 9:00AM – 6:00PM. This will do two things: a) build stamina for your entire body through muscle building, and functional strength training, and b) burn calories throughout the entire day without losing an entire half-hour at once.
“B” is for: BUILD MUSCLE
Now, if you CAN dedicate some time to the gym, or if you have a set of dumbbells at your house, what you need to do to lose belly fat is build muscle. Muscle is living tissue. Unlike your hair, finger nails, and millions of skin cells that you lose every day, your muscle actually takes calories to maintain. These calories are constantly coming in through the food you eat, but if you’re not active enough throughout your day, those calories turn into fat (as storage, your body assumes you’ll use it later).
If you want to make your body burn more calories faster, you’re going to need to build more muscle. To do this, I recommend you do full body resistance training with higher intensity than you’re use to. Exercises like, squats, lunge and press, full squats (going from squat to semi-jump), or even sprints will burn more calories than just cardio alone, and they will also build the much needed muscle in order to passively burn extra calories throughout the day.
You’d be surprised how much of a cardio workout full body exercises are, too. So don’t knock them. If you want to know how to lose belly fat quickly, my suggestion is that you find some awesome full-body exercises, and start working them today.
“C” is for: CUTTING OUT GARBAGE
If there is one key element in all of your goal of getting a smaller waist, it’s cleaning up your diet. If you’re wondering how to lose belly fat, and yet you’re still eating a lot of junk foods and stuff like that, you’ll never get there. At least not as quickly as you want to.
Now sure, your friends are all thin and they eat whatever they want! Well, you’re not losing weight for them, are you? Junk food (sweets, processed flours, and some super-sweet fruits) are all filled with sugars that are going to be saved as fat if not burned off immediately. I could go all day with nutrition, but you don’t have the time, and neither do I. Here are the basics to a nutritious diet.
- Eat lean proteins like chicken, fish, beans, and egg whites. These will help your body build the muscle needed to burn off your belly fat.
- Eat the “good” fats found in many nuts, olives, and fish. These fats help your body mobilize the “bad” fat that’s stored away in your body, and they’re also great for inflammation in your heart.
- Eat the right carbohydrates that are found in whole grain breads and veggies. Fiber will help you stay fuller longer so that you don’t get the munchies. It also keeps your colon clean, which is healthy in and of itself.
Proteins, Fats, and Carbs are called “macronutrients” that are daily essentials to keep your body going smoothly. If you’re eating empty calories from candies, sodas, and other junk food, then you’re depriving your body of its much needed nutrition that will ultimately keep you gaining body fat!
