Belly fat for most is where we begin to gain weight and it is also where it’s last to go. Whether you have tried before and failed or are on a mission to get the last few lbs off the belly to show your abs. These top 5 simple ways to lose belly fat will help you in the short term but more importantly, they are actually long-term solutions too.
1. Speed up your gut movement:
By speeding up your guts digestion you are essentially speeding up your metabolism. Your metabolism is responsible for converting the food you eat into usable energy for your body to use. So, when you’re eating the right food and eating it slowly, chewing a lot, drinking enough water, being active etc your speeding up your metabolism. Think of your digestive system as a plumed pipe in a house toilet that goes in a zig-zag around bends carrying stuff (crap)
Your digestive system is just like that only longer, 30 feet on average all packed into the trunk of our bodies. If you throw bits of chunky cardboard or rolls of toilet paper down the toilet it gets clogged up yeah!! or slows down the flow of water waste. It’s the same with eating junk food and not even chewing it enough to go down to your stomach smoothly. It will clog and slow down your digestion, metabolism and gains & fat-loss.
2. Sleep more
Get into bed 1 hour before you usually do, starting tonight. Instead of watching Netflix or scrolling through your Facebook newsfeed. Just go asleep. If this seems difficult-(You may even say) “watching tv or using my phone helps me nod off” Well it doesn’t get you quality sleep. The bright lights and exciting news really excites the brain and keeps it active when you should be winding down. Try changing your sleeping habits a little with these 3 simple steps.
3. Be aware of the liquid calories
If you struggle to lose fat and get lean and you think you eat healthily. Then your problem could be in the high-calorie drinks you have. You could swap them for less calorific options…
When you add up all the liquid drinks you could be easily getting in too much energy/calories from them and still feel hungry. Therefore, totally stopping your fat-loss goals. It is much better to eat food calories as this will fill you and provide less sugar and more protein.
For example, a 300 calorie chicken salad is going to be more nutritious, filling and healthier than a 300 calorie Starbucks Frappuccino
4. Use a training and food journal
Writing down everything that you eat and the exercises you do will keep you accountable and help you find the leaks in your lifestyle that need to be changed to help you see more progress. You will become more mindful of what you eat and how active you are. Then after a while, you can change it up slightly to help you speed up the results.
5. Bodyweight HIIT to rev up the fat burning process
HIIT is great for burning fat, it’s fun, it gets you fit, but more importantly, it burns belly fat really quickly.
Combine this with bodyweight you really blow torch the fat burning process
So, bodyweight HIIT is mixing things up from burpees tuck jumps, push-ups, jumping jacks, plyo lunges and a lot more, in high intensity interval training sessions
Example 20 seconds on 10 seconds rest (or the other way around if you’re a beginner) of burpees for 4 rounds. Simple and can be done anywhere. Plus, its can be made easier or header with more or less rest or working time or just changing the exercise.
So that’s it, if you do even one of these 5 tips you’ll make a difference but if you do all, you’re in for a nice surprise when you comfortably put on the old favourite jeans you don’t fit into anymore in the next week or 2. Or even reveal that 6 pack after 6-12 weeks.
