The Best Easy Weight Loss Programs And Diets To Lose Stomach Fat

Knowing how to lose belly fat is the first step in gaining that flat stomach that so many people aspire for. Once the belly fat is lost, then we are only one step away from achieving the ultimate dream, the six pack.

Belly fat seems to be a huge problem for lots of people, especially men. Naturally, men tend to hold more fat around their waist line, which we call love handles (or beer belly, pot belly). Besides the biological nature of men, modern lifestyle also has a huge impact on this. Work, stress, lack of exercise contributes to the accumulation of belly fat. Belly fat is usually very stubborn fat, in that it requires a lot of work to reduce it. Losing the beer belly and getting a flat stomach can be a painfully slow process, but it is certainly worth the efforts. The rewards are not only a better looking, sexier body, but also improved long term health.

To lose belly fat we have to throw out the junk food! We are what you eat, so don't eat junk. Do not keep junk food like cookies, chips, sweets and other similar products in the house. If we do not have these bad foods lying around, we will not think about it and after sometime, we will break the bad eating habits. These foods have high sugar content. Most junk food consists of refined carbs and sugar, which when eaten quickly raise blood sugar levels, leading to reduction in fat burning and increase in apetite.

Consumption of carbs is essential, but there are good carbs and bad carbs. Refined flours and the foods that they create, such as white bread, pasta, donuts, cakes and biscuits should be avoided. They can cause bloating, poor digestion, and lead to accumulation of fat. "Good carbs", such as fresh fruits and vegetables, should be eaten instead. A diet that takes most of its carbs from fruits and vegetables, as opposed to flours, is healthier. Ideally granary or wholemeal bread should be eaten instead of white bread, and biscuits and cakes should be avoided. Consuming too much carbohydrate can bump up our insulin level which can slow down our metabolism. Our body cannot metabolize too much carbohydrate at once because the body doesn't need so much energy at once. The excess sugar will just turn into belly fat. Slow release carbs are also beneficial, such as oats, brown rice, some pulses and sweet potato.

Combining meals with a good combination of protein, carbohydrate and vegetables can be beneficial. Our source of protein should be in a size of a deck of cards; the carbohydrates in a size of our palm and the major bulk of meals should come from vegetables. We should avoid late night snacks. The main problem with late night snacking is that there is not much activity done afterwards. People go straight to bed right after the late night meal because they are tired. So, this will cause high sugar levels in the blood stream and no energy spent after that. The excess sugar will just turn into fat. Losing belly fat requires a strict diet. Excess alcohol consumption can really give that belly too. Alcohol does not contain any nutrients at all. So, the entire amount of calories consumed through alcohol will be stored as fat!

Workout with weights at least twice per week and with cardio at least three times a week. Each weight training session is around 45 minutes and each cardio session is around 30 mins. So, actually we can just workout three times a week.

Losing belly fat and getting a flat stomach is a long term goal for most people, so persevere, stick to te plan, don't give up. In addition to these tips, look to enhancing fitness training by following specific routines and schedules. Organising weekly routine makes it much easy for us to follow. After a while it will become second nature to get out and exercise. If we do not have to think about what we are going to do, then that saves precious time. One of the best ways to help our self lose belly fat is to educate our self on how the body works, and how to exercise it properly.
