Losing stomach fat and toning your belly area, does not have to be a long and tedious battle. If you buy into all those diet programs and supplements that cause the body to heat up, generating energy to promote fat burning (with exercise), but also eat you alive from the inside out, then you will be on a long, long road to losing stomach fat, and will likely never reach your goal.
You can learn how to tone your belly area, and get rid of those love handles, but if you do not apply some basic principles, you will not get anywhere. Let us talk about the things you need to do , and things you need to stop doing .
Do not : Drink any sodas, caffeinated beverages, and energy drinks. You will also need to stop eating all processed or preserved foods, and anything else that has empty calories. All of those are counterproductive towards your goal of losing stomach fat and toning your belly.
Do : You will need to start drinking a whole lot more water. Water flushes out the toxins, helps the body to break foods down, and turn fat and calories into energy, while moving nutrients into a synergistic network of processes in the body, that utilizes these building blocks to give you energy.
Exercise to build more body muscles. Increase your protein to help repair muscles after your workouts. Take multi vitamins', this will help to keep the immune system functioning at a high rate to keep you more healthy.
Do not : Eat Junk foods labeled as "healthy"! They are often worse for your body, and are higher in fat content and other harmful ingredients.
One example ; Diet sodas contain aspartame, which is a sugar substitute that the body converts into formaldehyde in the body!
By eliminating all these un-healthy foods, you will stop the constant trauma your body has likely been going through. These un-healthy foods are unnatural, and have no place in the body. In fact, they are extremely counterproductive and harmful towards you losing stomach fat. They make the body ill, and it cannot defend itself. When that happens, you get tired and lazy, because the body is working 100 times harder than it has to! Gaining weight is a side effect of this .
Do : Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, foods rich in minerals, fiber, and nutrients. Base this on actually reading the ingredients, and not just the label. Get your food fresh, instead of trusting packaged or frozen vegetables. Purchase these from the fruit and veggies section of the supermarket, and cook them yourself.
This way, you know what is in your food, and know that they contain no preservatives. Many packages say they are preservatives free, but if you read the ingredients, they may not be!
Your body can lose stomach fat all by itself without anything but nutrients, fiber, and water (lots of water), and SOME exercise. This can be as simple as cleaning the house more often, walking around the block, or doing some jumping jacks in place.
Do not starve yourself
This is the most ridiculous thing you can do. No diet that asks you to starve yourself, or only eat so-called healthy foods, can really help you. You need to eat more than 3 times a day! However, do not eat full meals 3 times a day. This is too much food and too much work at one time for the body; this will lead to you gaining weight!
Do : Eat 6-8 small meals throughout the day. In other words, you should eat more by the end of the day than you do with the three large meals, but in smaller quantities. Eating once every 2 – 3 hours should do it. Do not forget, drink lots of water thought the day.
Eating more consistently, and making sure to eat healthy foods which are natural, organic, and good for your body, will give you a serious weight loss and energy gain. Eating consistently puts your metabolism in work mode all the time.
Eating every couple of hours, makes your metabolism work very efficiently, and since it does not have to warm up after several hours of fasting, it is ready to go and burn fat off as energy, instead of storing it. This does what an energy drink is supposed to do without the harmful effects. Just this step alone, is equal to the potential power you want in an energy drink!
Overall, if you really want to know the secret on how to lose stomach fat, and tone up your belly area, you will need to push your body back into the healthy lime light. This will help your body to burn fat off as energy. The more active you are, the faster you will tone your belly, and lose those love handles.
The bonus, if you follow the steps above (seems simple, but are quite powerful if your consistent about it) you will FEEL more energetic, and being active will be something you crave. Those will both help to burn off that energy, and you will know your burning off that belly fat at the same time!
