Trainer Tells All: How To Lose Belly Fat

When I give my boot camp ladies the option to decide on a workout theme they always come back to the same thing: let’s do a muffin top workout. When it comes to having a flat stomach and no love handles, this is the area most women want to concentrate on, but few actually do.

It’s important to know that wanting to decrease it isn’t enough… you have to work for it. The machines sound great that you see on television promising stomach reductions, but they don’t deliver because simply doing ab exercises doesn’t burn stomach fat… you can’t choose target fat burning zones. You can’t choose to lose stomach fat or expect to lose just stomach fat with core exercises.

Your body will lose weight where it sees fit…

Here is what it takes to lose the belly fat… for real.

Solid Workout Plans. When you walk into the gym with top notch workout plans you know exactly what you’ve got to accomplish for the day. You will immediately see that you workout harder and much more efficiently. There are two specific workouts that your plan should consist or: cardio and strength training for women workouts. Together they are going to help you melt off the most body fat and increase your metabolism… therefore burn off your muffin top!

Clean Up Your Diet. The foods you eat on a regularly basis counts for around 80-percent of how your figure looks. That’s why some people claim to be workout freaks but their bodies don’t express that at all. If you eat terribly then your body will show it, and if you eat clean just 90% of the time, your body will look amazing. It’s important to look at food and eating healthy as a long term lifestyle and not a quick fix diet.

Are You Motivated? Staying motivated is the number one issue women face when it comes to getting in shape. It’s often too easy to just give up when we don’t see results that we expect in a short period of time. First, I want you to write your goals on a sticky note and put them someplace where you can see them each day. Next up quickly scribble down why you want to hit your goals, and how you’ll feel once you do. And last, prepare yourself: each morning have your fitness clothes sitting out and ready to rock and roll.

This is how you’re going to drop the flab! In case you do want to do some extra ab exercises, these are my best exercise to lose belly flab (tone up ab muscles): Plank hold, uneven lunge walks (hold a weight in just one hand), and stability ball crunches.…

How to Increase Your Metabolism

Increase your metabolism and you will lose weight faster or gain weight slower. A higher metabolism burns more calories per day and increase weight loss. The problem is how do increase your metabolism? Keep reading a learn a few tips that will let you increase your metabolism and lose weight faster.

Do you find it hard to loose weight and keep it off? As we get older it gets even harder, which is a sign that we need to increase our metabolism. The food that we eat converts into energy, and the word ‘metabolism’ refers to the process that the body uses to distribute the nutrients from the food. Our basal metabolism keeps us alive and provides basic energy for life support, which requires 60-65% of the calories eaten daily. An additional 25% of calories are used during physical activity and another 10% are spent processing the food we eat.

Everyone’s rate of and ability to increase metabolism is different and is affected by many variables including general health, chronic health conditions, lack of physical activity, and age. We’ve all seen those people who can eat anything they want and never seem to gain an ounce, regardless of their level of physical activity; this is a prime example of a person with a relatively high metabolic rate.

According to various sources, a winning formula to maintain weight is to take in a number of calories equal to the amount used on a daily basis. To lose weight and increase metabolism, simply reduce the number of calories taken in, increase calories expended, or do both for better, faster results. Muscle burns more calories than fat, which is why it’s important to include weight or resistance training with aerobic exercise.

Increasing the heart rate can increase metabolism while exercising and also boosts resting metabolism for several hours afterward; that’s why is a good idea to exercise before the biggest meal of the day. Eating high-quality protein, fresh fruits and vegetables, and high-fiber grains will also give metabolism a boost. It is possible to maintain your ideal weight without dieting; just increase your metabolism and live healthy.

Boost your metabolism and you will burn fat 24/7! People who exercise on a regular basis can eat more without gaining weight because they expend more calories throughout the day than someone who doesn’t. Eating three small meals every day in addition to exercise will keep metabolism up and your weight down. Skipping meals isn’t an option either, because this only lowers the metabolic rate.

Everyone can benefit from a healthy diet and exercise, and it’s a proven fact that thinner people tend to metabolize food more quickly, so with each pound of body fat shed, subsequent pounds come off faster to increase metabolism. Age is also a factor that works against us, which is why it’s even more important to eat right and stay active. Take care of you body and it will return the favor.…
