To lose belly fat quickly you need to combine intensive cardio exercise, weight training workouts and a protein rich, sugar free diet. Why?
Intensive Cardio Exercise: This burns fat faster than any other form of exercise. It is also the fastest way to get fit, and the fitter you are, the harder you can exercise, which means you burn more fat.
Weight Training Workouts: Weight training builds muscle and muscle is greedy. Muscle building requires a lot of calories, so when building muscle calories that would have been converted to fat are converted to muscle. Also, muscles require more energy just to maintain themselves, so if you are muscular your energy needs are higher - you have a faster metabolism. You literally burn fat (or utilise energy from food) quicker than people with less muscle mass.
Sugar Free Diets: The biggest cause of weight gain is sugar. Fat may have more calories per gram than carbohydrates, but most people eat way too many carbohydrates. Stomach fat is almost always caused by excessive sugar. So cut out sugar from your diet. Also, muscle needs proteins to grow. So to build the muscle to raise metabolism, consume more protein.
These are the basic rules to weight loss. To put them into action, follow these tips:
- Perform at least 2 weight training workouts per week
- Perform at least 3 intensive cardio sessions per week
- Eat eggs for breakfast
- Cut out all bread, all cereals, all fruit juice
- No more cakes, cookies, pasta, bread, soda, take away food, junk food or processed food
- Never eat more than you need
- Drink lots of water
- Eat soup everyday - soup helps you feel full
