June 19, 2012 0 Comments

Millions of people around the world today are trying to lose weight. But ‘losing weight’ is such a generic term. Try Googling ‘lose weight’ and you’ll be presented with over 170 million results for detox diets, exercise plans, weight loss products and membership clubs.

But what if you want to concentrate on a specific part of your body? Almost all slimmers are fixated on one area they’d like to slim and tone and with so much generic information out there it can be difficult to sort through the clutter. So we’re here to concentrate on one of the most difficult weight areas to shift – belly flab.

It’s a problem area even for those who are already slim. It’s one of the first areas you gain weight and can be one of the last to disappear when losing weight fast.

You know that feeling. You walk past a mirror and have to turn back to check. Or you’re in the shower and look down with horror. When did you develop that belly? And how did it sneak up on you without you noticing?

Or for some of us it’s the complete opposite. You’ve been losing weight steadily and you’re nearing your ideal weight. Other areas of your body are slim and toned. So why doesn’t your belly want to co-operate?

Considering it’s such a common problem, the answer is much easier than you might think. A combination of specific exercise regimes and carb control will banish that belly flab in just a few weeks.

For some of you, a low carbohydrate diet or flat belly diet may already be a part of your weight loss lifestyle, for others it might be a new change. Put simply, the body burns carbohydrates as an energy source before it burns fat. Lower the carbohydrates and your body will be forced to turn to its fat storage for energy. Cut down on pasta, bread and potatoes (along with the fatty foods you should always avoid) but eat as many fruits and vegetables as you want.

The exercise regime requires a different mindset to the usual ‘run till you drop’ gym sessions but the good news is that it actually requires a shorter time to achieve amazing results. Instead of simply running as fast as you can for as long as you can, research shows that the body’s fat-burning mode can be triggered through ‘interval training’.

This means dramatically changing the level of difficulty (speed, resistance, hill angle etc) at regular intervals during the session. A simple example is jogging on the treadmill at a slow speed and then increasing the speed to your sprint level after 60 seconds. Alternate between these two speeds every 60 seconds for 20 minutes and your body will be transformed into a fat-burning machine.

Try these simple diet and exercise changes today and within a few weeks you’ll be saying goodbye to your belly.
