Lose Belly Fat in 30 Days

No one wants that unsightly belly fat to be on them for the rest of their lives. There is no need thinking that it will take forever to get rid of because it does not have to. You need to be healthy right now, not 2 years down the road. It is true that too much belly fat can cause a vast array of complicated health problems including heart disease, obesity, high cholesterol, heart attack, and many more unnecessary diseases. The more belly fat that you have, the higher your risk is for these dreadful illnesses. So how do you get rid of it? There is a way to get rid of your belly fat within 30 days. You need to first decide on how much weight that you need to lose. Once you have decided, let me inform you of the fact that one pound of fat is the equivalent to 3,500 calories. To sum it up, you are going to have to burn at least 500 extra calories every day in order to lose one pound of fat a week. In addition, you are going to need to avoid sugars and drink plenty of water, as well as put together your own exercise and weight resistance program. 

How many calories are you burning every day right now? A good way to find out is to keep a food diary and write down all of the foods that you normally consume on a daily basis. This will let you know how many calories that you are taking in and what you need to eliminate in order to keep your caloric intake at a more reasonable amount. Truth be told, most of us are not abiding by the food pyramid. After you have done that for a few days, write down the amount of physical activity that you do on a daily basis. Walking or running can burn up to an extra 400-700 calories per day depending on how much or how little you do. You also need to make sure that you are drinking lots of water. 

Next, we will begin with the fact that you are going to need to burn at least 500 calories per day in order to shed a pound of fat a week. One way to burn at least 500 calories every day is to drink nothing but ice cold water. The colder the water, the more your body has to work to warm it up, therefore increasing your metabolism and helping you to burn an extra 500 calories per day. Once you have combined this with eliminating some of the extra fatty foods in your diet, you will be well on your way to less belly fat. 

You are also going to need to understand the importance of exercise when losing belly fat. Exercise is an essential part of being successful at losing weight. You cannot get too far without bouncing back if you do not exercise. Try doing some form of cardiovascular exercise such as walking, running, or cycling at least for 30 to 45 minutes, 3 times a week. This will help to speed up your metabolism. When your metabolism is high, your body automatically burns more calories, leading to pounds of weight loss over time. Do not forget to add some weight resistance to your workout regimen. Adding weight resistance will allow you to burn more calories while you are resting. Implementing exercises that use more than one joint of the body are the best for this type of training. These kinds of exercises include but are not limited to: Mountain climbing, squats, pushpress, and deadlifts. 

Exercising alone is great, but can only be partially beneficial if not combined with a healthy diet. You have to make sure that you are feeding your basic nutritional requirements for weight loss for it become completely effective. To reach your highest potential of weight loss, you will need to eliminate sugar from your diet. Eating sugar while you are trying to lose weight can hold onto fat, even while a person is working out and doing everything else correctly. The extra pounds that sugar holds onto are often called "stubborn pounds". Those are usually the last 5 to 15 pounds that just won't budge, no matter what you do. By getting rid of sugar, you will get rid of those last few pounds and maintain your weight loss. Oftentimes, you can use a meal replacement or drink a protein shake before workout sessions to help improve the quality of your workouts. You may also choose to consume these whenever you would like in order to ensure that you are getting what you need so that you can lose more weight. 

So remember, if you fail to plan, then you plan to fail. Anyone who expects to lose weight needs to follow a plan. They need to ask themselves, "how much weight do I need to lose?", and “what can I do in order to burn the amount of calories necessary for my weight loss?". Planning your meals ahead of time can also help. It is time to get serious about losing weight and stop talking about it. Try keeping a list of what you want to eat for each day, including lots of protein and fiber at every meal. If you choose exercise, healthier foods, and a lot of water to go into your weight loss plan, then you have got all the ingredients for successful weight loss.

It is very difficult for someone to lose body fat and it can be very frustrating as well. In the end however, it is all worth it. For example, if you want abs, you can do all the work in the world while you're at the gym to get them, but they will never show if they are covered by body fat. While dieting or losing weight, it is often times tempting to eat that which we are not supposed to eat. I have discovered a way of helping with this problem. Next time you see something that you want but can't have, tell yourself that it is no good anymore. Make believe that it went bad and you don't even want it or that it has a weird taste to it and you think something's wrong with it. This has worked for me time and time again! Try it and let me know how it works.

1. Eat 5-6 small meals per day - The traditional three meals a day simply won't do it for burning fat. Every time you eat, your metabolism kicks in to start burning what you've eaten and you begin to break it down instantly, taking everything it has to offer, from energy to nutritional content. While eating only three meals a day, your metabolism has time between meals to slow down. This is not very efficient for burning fat. Your goal here is to keep your metabolism going and burning as much fat as possible. This is done by spacing your food out to 5 or 6 smaller meals a day, or by eating approximately every 2.5-3 hours. This is not to say eat like a horse 5 times a day, it means simply, to have your three meals, but to eat something small and extra in between. The advantage of this is two fold. First, it keeps your metabolism going, and second it will allow you to be less hungry during your next meal, in turn causing you to desire less food. Often times it is not practical to prepare yourself a meal in the mid-morning or in between your regular meals at any time. Using protein bars can solve this problem. You can get them right here at the store. Make sure that the one you choose however is low in carbohydrates and high in protein. For this reason, I do not recommend the Power Bars brand, but rather the brand Pure Protein bars. These are high in protein content and lower on the carbohydrate end of the scale.

2. Drink Water - The importance of drinking water is often overlooked. Your body is 70 percent water, and so it should be treated that way. Give it what it needs. Water is essential when dieting or losing weight. It helps you properly utilize all of your nutrients that you take in through food, which is essential when dieting. You need every nutrient that you take in or what's the sense of eating? It will help you transport the nutrients efficiently into your cells and determine how your cells use them. You need them to keep your health and to keep putting on quality muscle. At the same time, it will help you efficiently eliminate wastes while flushing all toxins out of your body to make you even healthier. Also, it will help make your skin more elastic like so that while your putting on quality mass with my first article, you can avoid getting stretch marks all together. It will improve your complexion. Also, water cushions joints. This is important because while losing body fat, you will also lose some of the fat cushion that helps protect your joints. Drinking plenty of water will help you avoid injury.

3. Eating Before Bed - Eating before bed is not a wise decision. While you are sleeping, your metabolism slows down. It is for this reason and this reason only that you do not want to eat within 3 hours of going to bed. The food that you eat will possibly be stored as fat because your body will not be able to burn it off completely. Think about it, you are going 8 or more hours without giving your body anything to keep it going anyway, so the danger is two fold. Avoid it whenever you can and you won't regret it!

4. Cardio - Cardiovascular exercise is perhaps one of the most important keys to losing weight. Your diet could be the best in the world, but it will never reach it's fullest potential without cardio. For best results, you will want to do your cardio at least 4 times a week for at least 20 minutes at a time to start with. Each week, you could maybe increase your cardio time by 5 minutes until you get yourself up near 45 minutes a session. The best time to do your cardio session is when you first wake up in the morning, before you eat anything. The reason for this is because when you wake up, your glycogen stores are low, so your body will begin to burn fat quicker than if it had to burn all of your carbohydrates up and then start working on your fat. However, it gets more complicated than this. While doing your cardio, you want to reach a target heart rate of 65% (most efficient fat burning zone) of your maximum heart rate. To determine this, subtract your age from 220 and multiply it by 0.65. This is how many beats per minute that you want your heart pumping out while you exercise for the whole session. This is not as complicated as it sounds. Here is an example. If you are 16 years old, like me then you would subtract 16 from 220. The difference is 204. Now multiply this number by 0.65. The answer would come to 132.6, rounded off to 133. This is the ideal number of beats per minute that you want when doing your cardio. That means you want your heart to be beating 136 beats every minute during your exercise session. This is the ideal fat burning zone while you do your cardio. You can measure it by stopping every now and then for a short 10 seconds only and count how many beats during those ten seconds by taking your pulse (use a stop watch). Then continue your cardio. Eventually you will be able to tell where you are at as far as beats per minute go.

5. High Protein - Keeping your metabolism going and burning fat efficiently while retaining as much muscle as possible is dependent on taking in a high amount of protein. Your body will burn carbohydrates first, because this is your main energy source. Once it runs out of carbohydrates, it will begin to use your fat as fuel. You don't want your body dipping into your hard-earned muscle to use as energy. It is for this reason that it is of prime importance that you eat as much protein as possible while losing the weight. It will keep your metabolism moving! This is why I recommended the Pure Protein bar in key 1 above. It is low in carbohydrates and high in protein content.

6. Lower your carbs - Without lowering your carbohydrates, your fat loss will be minimal at best. Lowering your carbohydrates will keep your body burning mostly fat all the time. Since your body burns carbohydrates first, then fat, it will have no carbohydrates to burn and begin burning fat immediately. The trick with carbohydrates is that you want to consume most of your day's carbs with breakfast. When eating breakfast, you want a combination of protein AND carbohydrates to give your body a jump-start for the day. Also, this will supply you with enough energy to get through the day.

7. Take a multi-vitamin - When dieting, taking a multi-vitamin will keep you strong and healthy. Since you are changing your eating habits in one way or another while dieting, you want to make sure you are getting in a good amount of your essential vitamins and minerals. A good multi-vitamin that I recommend is Centrum. I use it every day, and I can feel myself being healthy when I take it. Or if I am sick with a cold, I can almost feel myself starting to get better after taking it.

Extra Keys: - To prevent yourself from over eating and eating what you don't really need, wait 15 minutes after eating to see if you really want a second serving. Your body takes approximately 15 minutes to know that it's full.

-Get plenty of sleep. Sleep will provide you with energy the next day, which is vital while restricting your carbohydrates. Make sure to get at least 8 hours of sleep a night. Try for 10 especially if you're a teenager.
- Don't be afraid to eat plenty of fruits or vegetables while trying to lose weight. Just make sure that it is not completely and utterly high in carbohydrates such as baked potatoes. But don't hesitate to have an apple or an orange with breakfast, or some green beans with dinner.
