Belly fat, as we all know, is one of the most difficult things to get rid of. Here are some tips on how to help you lose weight from this area and firm up your stomach:
1. Target your fat cells
Researchers have shown that people who diet and exercise, shrink their fat cells twice as much as those people who only diet.
2. Start running or walking
The easiest way to lose your spare fat is by aerobic exercise, every day, for at least 30 minutes. For this to be efficient you need to break a sweat.
3. Try interval training
Speed interval training is even better than half an hour run, because it involves short and intense bursts of exercise that are followed by a brief rest periods. Walking is probably a great way to start.
4. Resistance – training secret
Muscle burns the calories even when it is not engaged in walking up a long set of stairs or lifting groceries. Building muscle through resistance training is the secret of staying lean as you age and it makes toned, firm and attractive muscles. You can do this exercise by lifting weights or using body-weight-only exercises.
5. Go slow
According to a study, the tempo exercises where lifting weights using slow and steady movements, can condition your body to burn more fat.
6. Drink less
A study shows that alcohol weakens your body’s ability to burn fat by 36%. To avoid belly-expending effects by alcohol, women should limit themselves to one drink per sitting, while men should stop at two drinks.
7. Keep cool 🙂
When you are stressed out, the body releases cortisol, which is a hormone that encourages your body to store belly fat.
