Forming a firm and flat belly takes time and patience.
There is only one way to reduce fat and get a flat belly. That’s a proper combination of exercise, proper food and stabilizing of the blood sugar level (it prevents the amassment of fat and reliefs it’s use by the body).
Fat reduction on a single place of the body is a myth
The one thing that we must have in mind is that there is no possibility to lower the fat only on one place of the body. The process is systematic.
When we use the fat for our energetic needs, it is used from many places of the body at the same time.
And unfortunately we can’t control or decide from which part of the body it will be used.
Practice, practice, practice
Working on the abs only will not help at all, especially if there is a thick layer of fat around the stomach that covers the abs.
The best exercises for fat removal are – cardiovascular aerobic exercises.
Activities like running, biking, stairs climbing etc. are great for fat burning.
Many people give up after the first few minutes of the exercises, but what is important to notice is that in the first 10 minutes the main body source for energy are the carbohydrates. The fat is next in the process.
So it takes at least 20-30 minutes of high intensity interval cardio workout, or 30-60 minutes of lower intensity interval cardio workout for the body to start to use the fat.
Better keep away from fried food and sweets. Loosing fat is 50% exercise and 50% diet.
No matter how much you practice, if the number of the calories you take is larger than the number of calories you waste, the belly will just get larger.
Smaller but frequent meals
Overeating is one of the major causes for fat creation, among the many other health problems that it evokes.
The best way to avoid overeating is splitting the calories intake in smaller daily meals.
It’s better to have 5 smaller meals per day than 2-3 larger ones.
Getting a flat belly in 2-3 weeks is just not possible. There is no magic stick or magic exercise that will do it. It takes time and it takes patience.
Any way the slower weight loss is better and healthier than the faster one. And the results last longer.
The main goal is to change the lifestyle. To gain a routine for a lifetime, something that will cause pleasure.
After all, life is a marathon, not a sprint.
