How To Reduce Tummy Fat
Finding out how to reduce tummy fat fast can be a real challenge. I’ve searched high and low trying to find the magical method of losing weight while sitting at my computer all day. Sad to say, I’ve discovered that sitting all day is the least effective method of getting six pack abs. Nonetheless, here are some ways on how to reduce tummy fat effectively.
Cut Down on Processed Carbohydrates
Over consuming large quantities of cereals, pasta, breads (even whole grains) and candies are bad for you. Period. Eating these high carb foods makes it harder for your body to lose tummy fat. Even so called high fibre breads tend to add to the problem because most of them contain refined flour. You are better off getting your carbs from sprouted grain products, fruits and vegetables. In fact, sweet potato is a great nutrient dense food that’s also a healthy carbohydrate source.
Exercises To Reduce Tummy Fat
We’ve often seen on TV how shapely models effortlessly perform crunches, sit-ups and leg lifts in order to reduce their tummy fat. But these are not the most effective ab workouts for your stomach. For exercises to reduce tummy fat, try instead the renegade dumbbell row and the floor mountain climbers. These ab exercise work your abs while giving you a full body workout as well.
Eating Healthy Fat
We all know that trans fat is bad not only for your body but also for your waistline. Avoid it at all costs. But wait, there is such a thing as healthy fat. Some great sources are virgin coconut oil (great source of healthy saturated fats), all nuts and seeds as well as olive oil and avocadoes. Stay away from margarine and deep fried foods. The trans fat in these foods will turn your hair white (just kidding..)
I’m Busy and Don’t Have Time To Exercise
If you don’t have time to visit a gym 3 times a week for a full workout, you can break it down to smaller workouts of 120 to 180 seconds, done 6-8 times a day. Some good exercises for this method include pushups, bodyweight exercises like chin ups, plank, squats and so on. The idea behind these mini workouts is to stimulate your metabolism and get your blood pumping several times a day. Although, it’s only a small cardio workout, you nonetheless increasing your heart rate and worked your otherwise resting muscles.
