How To Lose Abdominal Fat

Losing abdominal fat is easy if you know the type of training and diet to follow. Many people make the mistake of running on the treadmill for hours on end and starving themselves in order to lose the fat around their stomach.

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.

simple nutrition for fat loss

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.
