By the time you are finished reading this article, you will be on your way to a thinner and healthier you in the future.
Warm weather will be here before you know it and the beaches will be filled with overweight people stuffing their faces with sugary sodas and potato chips. Only you will not be one of them when you start using these tips and start getting rid of unwanted belly fat.
1. Skip the dull boring ab exercises and start implementing a muscle building routine. If you think cardio is the only way to burn fat, you are wrong! Your midsection is a fat cells paradise. They love sticking around and causing you all kinds of heartache.
The only way to lose weight in the midsection is to start losing fat in other parts of your body. You accomplish this by building lean muscle mass and replacing fat cells.
2. Complex carbohydrates are your friend. Do not get caught up in the low carb fad. It’s made America a nation of fat people. Sure you will lose weight in the beginning, but in the end, you will gain back twice what you lost. Eating a healthy amount of complex carbohydrates will keep you energized throughout the day and you will not see the viscous mood swings that occur with low carb diets.
3. Cross train – Doing the same dull cardio routine is boring. Anyone who spends countless hours on the treadmill is crazy. Mix it up, go for a bike ride, and swim laps in a pool. You can even get crazy and pretend your training for a triathlon.
Losing body fat should be the goal of anyone over weight. The risks of disease only escalate when you allow stubborn fat to hang around. Everyday not spent trying to better our health is equal to the ten days we will lose from allowing excess fat to hang around. Only you can make that choice, either live a sedentary lifestyle filled with disease or change to a healthy lifestyle and add years to your life.
Just imagine how you will feel when you start getting rid of unwanted belly fat. The joy you will feel each morning you wake! Your energy level will sky rocket and you will have the ability to accomplish anything you want throughout the day. Life will become miraculous and each day you live as a healthy person will be motivation for others.
