Excited to catch some waves but nervous about how you’re going to look once you have that swimsuit on? You can lose belly fat before you even go to put it on! There are many tried and true ways on how to lose that belly fat, and keep it off.
If you want – not only want to lose belly fat – but be healthy too, then build muscle. When you have muscle mass rather than fat, it makes it ten times easier for your body to burn calories while doing the simplest of things. Even while sitting, you burn double the amount of calories when you have muscles rather than fat.
To lose that dreaded belly fat, minimize your caloric intake to a number that best suits you. If you are a woman aged 18-35, then you need from 1100-1300 calories per day in order to stay healthy, yet allow your body to lose the weight you despise so much. If you are a male in the same age range of 18-35, you need from 1600-1800 calories per day.
By simply changing what you drink daily, it will help limit your calories. For example, sodas of any kind range from 150-300 calories per can or bottle alone! Now, don’t go thinking you’re sneaky and savvy by drinking “diet soda” – it’s no different.
Diet soda may have only zero calories, but it has so many chemicals in it to make it have no calories, that it is almost just as bad. And those empty calories are worrying experts that it forces your body to crave more calories.
Water is the best substitute for any drink. If you want to treat yourself to a drink induced with calories, do it in the morning – this way you have all day to burn off all of the calories.
The obvious way to lose belly fat is to increase the amount of time you spend at the much-dreaded gym. You don’t pay $25+ dollars per month for nothing! Good exercises to tone your tummy are often not found in crunches but in exercise regimens that incorporate the core of your body.
Some great exercises to tone your tummy are knee-ups, vacuum contractions, and running. These exercises will not only tone your tummy, but also your arms and legs. Doing squats will control your belly fat as well as give you nice, toned thighs – not to mention that amazing tush you’ve always wanted!
If you want to consider looking further than diet and exercise and are up for weight loss or diet supplements, then that’s okay, too. There are many different kinds to help you in your quest to lose belly fat. You just have to find the one that works best for you and has all that you want in a pill or liquid form. If you want to lose belly fat, you can – just never give up!
