Are you sick of looking at your flabby abs? Do you want to lose tummy fat and flaunt your sexy abs? All you have to do is work out those abs. Wish it could be as simple as that but apparently it’s not. It takes a whole lot of dedication which doesn’t mean taking up your everyday’s usual working hours, but definitely a small niche in it. After all, spending some time on something valuable is always a good initiative or which I would like to call it ‘a time spent on healthy beautification’. Some people lose fat to get a change, some for career initiative, and some on just to get a healthy appetite. No matter what the reason it is, if you lose tummy fat it is sure to make a change in your life.
The main aspect of the stress on dedication is to make sure that you don’t give up on something just because it takes time. The truth is that everything becomes simple once you take it to your heart and work your way out. And the desires to lose tummy fat are no exception. It’s quite evident to observe it from the ones who has got great abs. They make it look simple and appealing. It’s all because of their desire and not to mention their complete dedication on something they want. Now that we are sure about what we want and got our mind into it, it’s time to lose tummy fat once and for all.
In order to lose tummy fat, there are basically three areas which need to be concentrated and practised.
The Vital Three:
- A healthy diet- To feed your hungry muscles.
- Cardio-vascular exercises- To burn the excess fat off your body.
- Abdominal exercises- To target specifically on the abdominal muscles and built them.
A Healthy Diet:
The most important factor to lose tummy fat is to have a healthy diet. Many people have different views on dieting and even come up with new dieting techniques and give whatsoever reasons to justify it. Not all reasons are true neither fake to believe it. It’s because a human body is ‘The Most’ complex machine of all organism. What makes it complex is that, the way every human body responds to a particular stimulus. But the ultimate fact about dieting is to have a balance between the amount of calorie intake and the amount by which it is burnt.
A calorie is not a complicated word as it sounds. It is just a measure of the amount of energy in any organic matter. By having a good check on the calorie intake, one can have a healthy diet without having to worry about the excess energy getting stored in the form of fat in their body.
A healthy diet doesn’t need much of a sacrifice as one would imagine. A diet need not to be complex in our everyday living. If you believe to lose tummy fat with a healthy diet, all you need to do is not sacrifice rather practise. Here are a few recommended tips on dieting, which I believe cannot get any simpler than anything in the name of diet.
- Consume at least three litres of water a day- helps you keep your stomach clean.
- Add lot of vegetables and fruits to keep everything fresh and organic.
- Avoid fried foods and cheese slices which are nothing but just fat with a flavour.
- Eliminate red fatty meat. Prefer lean meat which adds the required proteins with less fat.
Now that we have a control on the amount on the calories we intake, let’s focus on the excess calorie stored in our body in the form of fat.
Cardio- Vascular Exercises:
People normally don’t use the exact term, instead they refer it as cardio workouts. It’s a very vital part of the entire exercise routine to lose tummy fat. Why? Because it’s the only exercise routine which focuses on burning calories (fat) compared to building muscles in any exercise. The term is actually a huge gimmick. When we say walking, running, skipping, cycling etc we would easily recognise its function. Apparently the term cardio- vascular exercises represents all the above activities or workouts. It is highly advised to anyone in this world to practise at least one among the above activities everyday to lead a healthy life. We live a world where everything is in the reach of our hands, which is obviously the reason, why there is a need to lose tummy fat. Practising a cardio workout everyday helps you burn those excess fats and in combination with strength training helps you lose tummy fat much quicker.
Abdominal exercises are target- specific exercise which works on your tummy. In addition to strengthening your abs, it helps to lose tummy fat to some extent. The exercise routines ranges from hard to easy, beginner to expert programs, anything and everything which one would need to show off their sexy six packs. The most popular ones to lose tummy fat are the crunches which involve lying on the floor on your back with your hands touching your ears and legs bent 90° to the floor. Start crunching forward as much as possible and repeat it until you feel it in your abs. There are several crunching techniques focussing on different parts of your body like the reverse crunch- working the lower abs, oblique crunch- on the sides, regular crunch with weights- to improve ab resistance. The ultimate aim is to lose tummy fat and feel the difference!
