How to Lose Belly Fat Fast! 5 Tips

How to lose belly fat fast - Hire a personal trainer from Training Innovations(505)261-1253Figuring out how to lose belly fat is often the hardest part of weight loss for most people. Here are the three most common mistakes people make when trying to lose belly fat:

1: Don’t Try to Lose ONLY Belly Fat (spot reduction)

The most important thing that you must know about fat loss is that you can’t “target” your fat loss to one part of your body. In other words, you will not lose stomach fat just by doing crunches. The only way to lose fat is to burn more calories than you consume.  This will cause you to lose fat over your entire body.

There is no way to control or “target” the fat loss to any one specific spot. For advanced athletes this is probably common sense. However, there are many, many beginners who still believe in the myth of “spot reduction.” So if you want to lose your belly fat,  the only way to do it is by burning more calories than you consume. Rather than focusing on ways to “target” belly fat,  figure out how you can consume fewer calories and burn more.

2: Severe calorie restriction is not sustainable

Once people realize they must burn more calories than they consume to lose fat, they usually dramatically cut their calories. This seems like a good idea. But it actually tremendously reduces your chances of successfully getting a flat stomach. Why is this? The truth is, changing your diet habits are much more difficult than most of us think.  You can follow an extreme “crash diet” for a few months, but it won’t be sustainable. And once you go off your diet, you’ll probably gain back all the weight you lost and more.

3: Drastic reductions in calories lead to muscle loss

Once a person drastically cuts his calories, it can lead to losses in lean muscle mass. Even if you don’t care about being muscular, this is important fact. Each pound of muscle burns a small amount of calories each day through your metabolism. Each additional pound of muscle also burns more calories through your workouts(especially if you are doing intense cardio workouts). So rather than trying to drastically reduce your calories, aim for a small reductions that are sustainable for the long term.

4: Don’t Try To Lose Belly Fat through Diet Alone or Exercise Alone

Just starting to exercise and eat healthy go a long way in helping you lose belly fat. And just getting your diet or workouts right is far better than doing nothing. But the truth is, the most effective, the fastest, and the EASIEST way to lose belly fat is by using a combination of both exercise and diet. Here’s why: if you’re trying to lose fat through diet alone, you’re going to have to cut your calories down pretty severely.

Burning more calories through exercise will allow you to eat more. And if you’re trying to lose weight with exercise alone, you’re going to have to burn a ton of calories through your workouts. If your diet is really bad, it may not even be possible to burn off all those extra calories through working out.
