Why So Many People Fail to Lose Belly Fat
Individual reasons may vary but the most common are:
Doing nothing - Learning how to lose belly fat is a good start but you should start doing something or the fat won't go away. Even a few little things add up so just do commit to finally lose that belly fat starting today.
Doing the wrong exercises - It is a common myth that doing hundreds of crunches will give you six pack abs. The truth is that doing crunches is not enough.
Crunches and other ab exercises help you develop stronger muscles but you will not see them if you do not burn the layer of excess fat above them and doing crunches will not burn enough fat. You will discover what does work on this site.
Crash dieting - People starve themselves to get temporary results at best. It is hard to stick to those diets for any meaningful amount of time, not to mention that depriving your body from essential nutrients is not a good long term strategy.
Crash diets (anything below 1400 calories a day) don't work and they are unhealthy, all the weight that was lost will be gained back when the unreasonable diet becomes too hard to keep up with.
I will show you how to eat healthy without crash dieting, you don't have to suffer to lose belly fat.
Diet pills - They don't work like you might expect you can't just pop one everyday and become a swimsuit model. Those pills usually have the "best results are achieved with proper diet and exercise" disclaimer written right on the label and for a good reason.
Without healthy eating habits and exercise, those diet pills will do nothing and with exercise and proper diet there is no need for those pills.
How to Lose Belly Fat
So How to lose belly fat the right way? What is the best way to get rid of belly fat for good? Well first and foremost you need to decide, once and for all, that you truly want to lose belly fat for good and are ready to put in the time and effort, since there is no miracle way to lose belly fat instantly.
Second, if you would like to learn how to lose belly fat the healthy way you will need to understand this seemingly simple principle - You lose belly fat when you burn more calories then you eat.
Get Rid of Belly Fat with Healthy Eating Habits
The easiest way to reduce the amount of calories you consume is to take a closer look at the types of food you eat. Some foods are very bad for your diet.
Your eating habits are the most important key to losing belly fat. It is close to impossible to get rid of belly fat without correct eating habits.
I am not talking about dieting, especially in the popular sense where you completely deprive your body of carbs or fat or where you get temporary results by losing water weight. You will usually end up lowering your metabolism and gaining back more weight then you had to begin with because of it.
Rather we will look at what types of foods to avoid by replacing them with healthier kinds. Also the frequency and size of your meals as well as the amount of water you drink all have a big effect on your ability to lose belly fat, I review them in more detail on the diet to lose belly fat page.
Losing Belly Fat - Weight Loss Principle
One pound of fat equals approximately 3500 calories so if you wish to lose 2 pounds per week (more then that is considered unhealthy) you should burn an extra 7000 calories per week or 1000 calories per day.
Not all of this difference should come from diet as we will be adding some simple fat burning exercises to your routine.
This is a place to note that if you want to lose belly fat it is important to not reduce your caloric intake too drastically.
When you starve yourself your body will go into survival mode by lowering your metabolism and you may end up gaining more fat this way. A better way would be to burn the excess calories through exercise this has the added benefit of increasing your metabolism.
There is no miracle food that will help you in your quest for a flatter tummy, but there are foods you should avoid to lose belly fat faster.
