of running on the treadmill for hours on end and starving themselves in order to lose the fat around their
In this article we will discuss what kind of training and nutrition is right for burning belly fat fast and effectively.
In order to burn abdominal fat you need to eat at a caloric deficit. This means that you need to calculate your
basal metabolic rate and daily activity level and find the number of calories your body needs per day. Then,
depending on how much weight you want to lose, you need to figure out your daily deficit.
To lose one pound per week, you need to burn or eat 500 less calories that your daily total. Because a pound
equals 3500 calories, seven days of eating 500 less calories will ensure you lose a pound per week.
As I mentioned above, a deficit can be created by either burning 500 calories or eating 500 less calories. For
most people, they find it easiest to burn 250 calories and eat 250 calories less than they normally would.
You can speed up you weight loss by dramatically cutting down your calorie intake as well as increasing your
activity level. It is recommended, however, that you do not decrease your daily calories below 1200. This will
cause your body to go into starvation mode and hold onto all the fat possible.
Revamping your diet involves planning your meals so that they fit into your daily calorie allowance. At the end
of the day, you should come close to this number - but if you are over by a few calories don’t sweat it. Your meals
should include a good balance of carbohydrates, protein and heathy fats.
Choose lots of vegetables and fruit, along with complex carbohydrates like oatmeal, brown rice, sweet potatoes,
and quinoa. To lose abdominal fat, avoid fatty meats and stick to lean protein like salmon, chicken breast, and
lean ground beef.
To burn 250 calories a day through training, you need to develop an effective workout routine. This routine
should involve a variety of compound exercises and isolation exercises to really fatigue the muscle. You don’t need
to do hundred of situps everyday - instead, focus on working every muscle of your body and breaking down the muscle
fibers. Building more muscle all over your body will increase your metabolic rate and you will burn more calories
throughout the day.
Along with a strength training routine, you should add
high intensity interval training to your workouts. This can be done either before or after your lifting routine,
and should last around 15-20 minutes. As you increase your cardiovascular fitness, you can decrease your recovery
time and increase your work time. This will help you burn overall body fat and lose abdominal fat.
Hopefully this article has given you an insight into what it takes to burn abdominal at and how to structure
your training and diet around this goal. By working hard and be consistent with your program you will soon reach
your goal of have a lean, flat stomach.
