I’ve been doing a lot of research on losing belly fat. Since it isn’t possible to just remove fat from one area, in order to reveal abs one must loose body fat in general. My body has decided to save my belly fat for last. Once you’ve lost a lot of weight your body try’s to hold on to that last bit which makes getting rid of it harder. So here are some things I am doing to get it off. Two days a week of cardio interval training, interval training involves alternating between exercising at a moderate rate with bursts of a faster pace. More fat is burned through interval training than by exercising for longer periods of time at a steady pace. It forces your body to burn fat for energy instead of just using oxygen. I try to keep my heart rate up while I am strength training by quickly going from one exercise to the next during circuit training. When it is feasible I do my cardio before breakfast so there are little carbs for my body to burn so it burns fat instead. As far as diet is concerned a clean diet is considered the best for revealing abs so by being vegan I’m doing good in that area. In order to speed up my metabolism I have started eating smaller meals every two hours and I’m looking into the benefits of eating certain protein to carbohydrate ratios.
If you have tried loosing body fat, what are some things you have found helpful?
