If you would like to burn belly fat fast then there are 3 quick and easy steps you should put into action right away if you want to see results.
Let’s face it, having excess belly fat is not only bad for health reasons, but also can make you feel really uncomfortable, not just in your clothes but in yourself, and that’s a whole lot worse.
Feeling bloated is something we all suffer with from time to time, and sometimes it’s simply just the short term effects of over indulgence maybe over Christmas or a holiday. But bloating is different to actual belly fat because it is usually just temporary water retention or gas which is much easy to dispel than actual fat.
Kicking Belly Fat to the Curb!
Either way you want rid of this bloat or belly fat as soon as humanly possible, and would love to see yourself with a toned flat stomach right? While I cannot promise miracles, there are some simple strategies you can use both short and long term to help blast that unsightly fat into kingdom come. So without further ado let’s get stuck right in.
Firstly, and I know you may not want to hear this but losing fat WILL require you put in some kind of effort. I never have and never will advocate those dangerous diets where you eat half a grapefruit a day, or some other similar extremely low calorie and dangerous program.
When you go in for these kinds of extreme diets any weight you may lose will be mostly fluid, and also quite alarmingly, your body will be triggered into starvation mode where fearing it is living in times of scarcity will decide to hold on to that fat more tightly. Yikes right? Exactly what you don’t want!
These diets ONLY work in the very short term; or rather they appear to work but as soon as you start eating normally again you will pile it all back on (and often more). This kind of starvation diet will mess up your blood sugar and your metabolism, both of which will only serve to make you fatter in the long term.
MAKING LIFE LONG CHANGES:
For long term weight loss you will need to start doing things a bit differently, such as learning to make permanent tweaks and changes to your diet and lifestyle. Learning new and more effective ways of doing things creates new neural pathways in your brain, and ones which will serve you better than the old dysfunctional ones.
Creating Healthy Habits
Creating these new neural pathways through doing and learning new things will also help you to create new healthy habits: it literally all starts in your brain. It may sound boring and like hard work, but it’s a simple process and really the only way to get the body you desire long term.
Building new neural pathways will in turn start to change your current belief system (one that obviously isn’t working for you) about yourself and food, but to kick start this process you’ll need a plan, and one where you start seeing results fast, but also in a healthy way.
If you follow these tips and strategies immediately you could get a flatter stomach within days, as the extra fiber, antioxidants, and petrochemicals will help to clear out your system quickly. You will also see the effects in your skin, eyes and energy levels.
4 WEEKS TO A FLATTER STOMACH
Here are my 3 healthy steps that should not take up too much of your time, and they cost minimal cash. If you are strict with these 3 steps then you should see a noticeable change in your appearance, not to mention your confidence, within 4 weeks – and you will start seeing a flatter stomach within days, just what you wanted to hear I know 🙂
No Calorie Counting
This diet is simple as it requires no calorie counting, and you won’t go hungry; however you should stop eating before you feel too full (which puts the digestive system under huge strain). When you start eating good quality, high fiber, low sugar, and nutrient dense foods your body will tell you when it has had enough and you should listen – this bit is very important!
Inevitable Slip Up’s
You will get a feel for things as you go, but don’t beat yourself up if you have a slip up, just forget about it and move on instantly. DO NOT make the mistake of waiting until the next day (or week) to start your diet plan again. If you do you will never break this unhealthy cycle, which will be the kiss of death for your plans of a healthy slim body.
In fact, it was only when I finally after many years of diet failure learnt the simple rule of moving on from a slip up instantly that I started to have a breakthrough in my weight loss, so this really is my NUMBER 1 TIP!
BURN BELLY FAT FAST – 3 QUICK AND EASY STEPS
I have deliberately not added any animal products onto this list for the simple reasons that is a plant based website; plus I personally had my best results on a plant based diet due to the anti inflammatory effects of plant foods. So I suggest to get the most out of the next 4 weeks you treat it like a much needed detox, which will also give your system a break.
If you feel you can’t do this then of course feel free to use lean meats and dairy as your sources of protein, but I cannot guarantee the same results.
In this time you will also learn to cook and eat new foods, which in turn will start changing your taste buds and help ensure that you don’t slide back into old habits.
1.CUT OUT SUGAR
I know this is an obvious one, but it is SUGAR not fat that is making you fat; and by sugar I mean all refined carbohydrates including white bread, rice, pasta, and flours.
These foods are JUNK as they are clogging up your system and ultimately being stored as fat. Cutting these foods out really isn’t as hard as it sounds and next up I will be giving you replacements that should not only keep you satisfied, but help you break that sugar cycle that’s keeping you from losing weight.
This diet works by keeping your blood sugar stable and is full of low gIycemic foods that will help to achieve this. Keeping blood sugar as even as possible will stop you from laying down fat stores, and also slash your risks of type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease and many more diseases, so to say this part is very important is an under statement.
If you think you will find sugar hard to quit then find out how I over came my own sugar addiction here.
Here are the foods you need to stop eating for the next 4 weeks (ideally for good if you want long term results):
- Confectionery – including cakes, chocolate, biscuits, sweets or anything containing refined sugar, glucose, sucrose, fructose, honey or other syrups.
- White rice
- White flour
- White Bread
- Sugar in general
- Fruit juices
- Fizzy drinks
- Fast junk food
2. ADD IN ALL THESE GOODIES
- Whole fruits and vegetables in ABUNDANCE; and eat them as raw or lightly cooked as possible for their live nutrients and fat burning enzymes.
- Avocado’s – if you eat an avocado a day you will keep your blood sugar more stable, feel full, AND reduce,your cravings for sugar and high carb foods all in one go. They are that good!. If you don’t like avocado’s then whizz them up in a smoothie with a ripe banana and cocoa powder – it tastes just like a chocolate milkshake… honestly.
- Healthy fats (very much in moderation when trying to lose weight) – these include extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, sesame oil, grape seed oil, walnut and flax seed oils.
- Nuts and seeds (again in moderation, no more than 30g per day) – such as brazil nuts, walnuts, almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds.
- Protein – such as legumes, tofu, soy beans, nuts, seeds, and protein powders. Protein needs to make up a big part of your diet as it will fill you up and help reduce cravings. It will also help to keep you from losing fat instead of muscle which is a major problem when losing weight. Muscle burns more calories than fat on your body, so the more you have the better. See here for a full list of plant based proteins and try to eat them with every meal or snack
- Specific fat burning foods – these include cinnamon, broccoli, berries, grapefruit, and super food powder, but read the full list here.
3. BELLY FAT BLASTING EXERCISE
Hula hooping – This is another crucial step, and you don’t need to join a gym or even leave your own home if you do this one crazily effective exercise for about 20-30 minutes per day, AND you can do it anywhere that you have about a square meter of room. In front of the TV or listening to music is great as it will help the time pass faster and alleviate boredom.
You really need to purchase an adult sized weighted hula hoop as it will help you tone up more quickly and effectively, and hula hooping is also great for toned sexy abs whether you are a male or female.
HULA HOOPING AND STOMACH TONING:
Hula hooping burns belly fat faster than any other exercise I have tried and really gives your abs a really good workout; plus it burns about 600-800 calories an hour… say what!? Seriously – you can feel this exercise literally shaping and toning you whilst you are grinding away at it and that feels FANTASTIC. It is definitely my go to belly fat burner.
Hula hooping may take some getting used to, and it may even take you a while to be able to keep the hoop up, but as with everything you just need to practice and you will master it pretty quickly.
If for some reason you really don’t take to it, or just plain don’t want to hula hoop, then to get the flat stomach you desire you must do some form of exercise, preferably weight bearing, and as frequently as possible if you want to see results in 4 weeks.
Don’t balk at this as I don’t promote the use of dangerous and unnatural diet pills; there are however some that can be effective in giving you that extra weight loss edge, but only when used alongside a healthy diet and exercise pan. Look at them as something that can compliment your weight loss efforts, especially in the initial stages when you really want to see noticeable changes in order push you into carrying on.
In my post best weight loss pills of 2018 I have reviewed and chosen a handful of natural supplements that have actual scientific research behind them, plus the testimonies of lots of happy customers. These two things are crucial in anything that I recommend my readers, and you can trust I have done the hard work for you.
I would love to hear your own testimonies or experiences of anything to do with weight loss, diet supplements, or indeed anything related to this post; so feel free to go ahead and leave your comments below. Thanks.
