How To Lose Your Belly Fat Fast

Oct 24, 2007
Belly fat, belly fat, belly fat! Everybody (and every body) wants it gone and gone now! But how do you get rid of it? What's the best way to get rid of it? Is it even possible to get rid of it and keep it off?

Yes, it's possible and people like you and me are doing it every day. And it's not difficult at all. As a matter of fact, you probably already know what you need to do to lose your belly fat fast but you just haven't been doing it. Maybe you lack motivation to do it; maybe you never saw the quick results you wanted to see, who knows why you stopped. Only you do.

But let's start over and take a look at some of the key elements that we need to lose belly fat fast, starting today, ok?

How often are you eating? Are you eating 2 or 3 large meals a day, usually waiting until you feel like you're starving before you eat?

Stop doing that. One of the best ways to lose that belly fat fast is to eat 5 to 6 small meals throughout the day, usually every three hours. Why? This helps to keep your metabolism elevated and your metabolism is one of the key components to burning fat period. It'll be burning fat even when you're not exercising, so you want to keep your metabolism high as often as possible and eating smaller meals more often is a great way to do that.

What kind of foods are you eating? Are you eating too much of them?

Look, we all wish that our diets could simply consist of cake and ice cream (I love caramel turtle fudge ice cream myself), but the fact of the matter is that it can't; at least not all of the time. Since you're going to eat and eat often, why not let what you eat help you to lose your belly fat as well?

How? Glad you asked! Foods that help you to burn belly fat naturally are whole wheat foods, fresh vegetables, fruits like apples, oranges, and bananas (uncanned and natural), skim milk, chicken, turkey and other lean meats, seafood, and even egg whites. That list doesn't look to bad, now does it?

Are you exercising? If so, how often and what are you doing?

Too many people rely solely on sit-ups or crunches to lose their belly fat. This type of exercise is called spot reduction and it's been proven to be very ineffective in helping people to lose their belly fat. When you exercise, try to focus on large muscle groups and cardio exercises. You'll find that by working the larger muscle groups of your body will give you better metabolic results for a longer period of time. Better metabolic results equals more natural fat burning which equals losing more belly fat fast.

It's not hard to lose your belly fat fast. Stay focused on more frequent smaller meals, eating foods that naturally help you to burn fat, and don't focus on only doing crunches or sit-ups. By staying consistent with these three principles, you'll shave off that belly fat in now time.
