Anyone ever ask you, “How much fat did you lose?” But, you have heard this question, “How much weight did you lose?” Infomercials do a great job of selling weight loss. FAT LOSS (ESPECIALLY ABDOMINAL FAT) IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN WEIGHT LOSS! Always remember that and you will succeed with your health and fitness goals.
One quick way to start burning abdominal fat is to cut out all sugars like sodas, sugary drinks (including some fruit juices), candy, donuts, package/boxed foods, etc. This one step alone will cut tons of calories for you if you replace them with foods like fresh fruits, fresh veggies, water, unsweetened drinks (like tea), and low-fat yogurt, etc.
Don’t look for shortcuts. Your health is most important. The quick weight loss gimmicks lead to yo-yo dieting and even more weight gain! There are no quick solutions to permanent fat loss and weight loss.
Make the commitment to change your eating habits permanently even if you have to take small steps to get it done. And mix in regular weight training (including bodyweight exercises) and interval cardio. This is the proven recipe to give you the toned, healthy body you want and need.
Advertisements such as “lose 30 pounds in 30 days,” sends a message that has a short-term solution to your weight problem. Why? Because weight lost that quickly (without regular exercise) will be mainly lost muscle mass instead of fat mass (this will slow down your metabolism). You also might be very ill after losing that much weight in such a short period of time.
It’s not going to help you much if your body looks good (for a while) but your health and quality of life is a total wreck! Exercise hard and smart. Build a foundation for your body.
