People are desperately searching for ways to flatten their stomach and look attractive. Many people are of the opinion that abdominal fat never burns off and one can simply never go back to the original shape. Or course it is hard to lose abdominal fat, but you can as it depends on what exactly you want to lose.
Two main types of fats are found in our body. One is the visceral fat and other is the subcutaneous fat. The former one is stored around the organs of the body and protects the organs. It is underneath the muscles of the abdomen. The latter one is stored under the skin and when you pinch it comes under your fingers. Visceral fat is easy to get rid but not subcutaneous fat. Depending on what kind of fat you want to lose, you have to perform that kind of exercise that will target the right fat.
1. Strength training is good for building muscles that will automatically prevent muscle loss and enhance fat loss. You can try squat and dead lifts as well. It helps to work up all the muscles and you get stronger quickly.
2. Whatever you eat must be beneficial to the body. As you know ‘abs are built in the kitchen’. You can exercise for hours together, but if you are going to eat junk, then forget everything you did at the gym. Everyone knows the importance of good food so stay focused on proteins, veggies, fruits, fats like fish oil, nuts, real butter, flax seeds only. Carbs like oats, whole grain brown rice or quinoa are wonderful. You do not have to be very strict an occasional treat to your taste buds can be okay. Don’t overdo it though.
Remember, even if you eat healthy food, you do not have to overeat that too. Eating more than your body needs makes your body to store it in fat form and that is not good. So control and eat in small portions. How right your alcohol consumption is will also determine how fast you are going to lose weight. Once in a while or once every week one drink is okay, but everyday drinks are not allowed when you want to lose abdominal fat. You are not supposed to consume beer, sweet wines and other spirits daily. Do not get drunk at all.
Stay focused as that is important if you want to achieve something. Many people simply stop it all as they do not get results quickly. You can get some company in the fitness center or the gym. Your friends can help to stay motivated and encourage you when you feel low at times.
