How To Lose Belly Fat - 3 Top Tips Revealed

Many people yearn for six pack abs and yet struggle to turn that desire into reality.

Are you one of them?

In this article, I want to highlight 3 proven strategies on how to lose belly fat and develop six pack abs. You don't need any fat loss pills, ab gadgets or follow any fad diets to achieve your goal of getting ripped or six pack abs, or a flat stomach. Once you do what is right, you will be showing your ripped abs in no time and be the envy of others!

Firstly, dietary habits are the sole determinant of whether you get ripped abs. Most people will never have low enough body fat for visible abs if their diet is poor. Do you know that diet is even more important than exercising if you want to lose belly fat? Unfortunately, there has been so much misleading and confusing messages in the media about what's healthy and what's not in promoting fat loss. Gimmicky diets usually limit or favour one food group such as low fat, high protein, low carb, atkins, south beach, vegetarian, cabbage soup, fasting and so forth. They tend to focus more on one macronutrient while your body needs all macronutrients, vitamins and minerals. By eliminating an entire food group, your body is deprived of what it needs to function most efficiently. It is important to eat a wholesome, natural and balanced diet as much as possible. Avoid refined (grains, flour, sugar, oil), processed foods and trans fat as these can damage your metabolism and adversely affect your hormone balance in your body.

Secondly, focus on the intensity of your workouts and on training the largest muscle groups of the body to maximize your fat burning effect. Working out large muscle groups like the legs, back and chest stimulates fat burning hormones and metabolism. Some effective exercises include squats, deadlifts, lunges, clean and press, etc. Although training small muscle groups like biceps, triceps and shoulders have certain benefits, it does not develop a lean body.

Long, steady cardio is not the best way to lose body fat and get visible six pack abs. Interval training is more effective than slow cardio routines. Due to the variety of intensity, interval training has been proven to strengthen the heart and maximize fat loss. Your metabolism remains elevated post interval workout so your body burns more calories than it would have burned during a cardio workout.

Thirdly, let's discuss about abs training. Forget about doing hundreds of crunches and sit ups. These ab exercises do not provide enough stimulus for the abs of most people who already has some training under their belt. Resistance helps to build and tone muscles. However, crunches are one of the ab exercises that provide the least amount of resistance. High resistance ab exercises such as hanging leg raises and lying leg thrusts are more effective in developing six pack abs.

Bear in mind that ab exercises do not get rid of belly fat, so don't waste too much time training your abs directly. Specific ab training should only form a small part of your workout program. Your six pack abs will not be visible if covered with fat. Focus on full body exercises which create metabolic changes that help to reduce body fat. These exercises also indirectly work the entire midsection. Combined that with a healthy, natural and wholesome diet, you will definitely get your ripped abs in the shortest time!
