Most people suffer from fat accumulation in the stomach area, and when they exercise to lose weight, it looks like fats at other parts of the body melts away but the tummy fats seem impossible to go away! Are you also suffering from such a frustrating issue? If you are, do not worry, as this is a very common phenomenon. Most people tend to have more fat cells naturally around the stomach area. How should we go about removing these bothersome tummy fats then?
You have to first realize that removing fats from the stomach area, short of using liposuction, is extremely difficult. So the methods needed are going to be difficult to keep to, and you will need a strong enough motivation to keep to your diet and exercise regime.
Firstly, intermittent fast is a great way to go about losing fats really quickly. Basically, intermittent fast is the method of only eating within a certain time slot out of the entire day. For better illustration, you will only be consuming foods within a window of eight hours. For every other hour of the day, you will be fasting and can only take plain water. This seeks to control and reduce the total amount of calories you will take in through the day.
Other effective methods include calorie cycling. You will generally need to be in a calorie deficiency, which is the state of burning more calories through exercises than that taken in by the body in the form of food. However, constantly being in a calorie deficiency will mean that your body will get accustomed to it, and you will see before slow or minimal results. You will also also be cycling your calories, which simply means being in a slight calorie surplus for a day or two every fortnight. This keeps your body guessing and will indirectly speed up the process of weight loss.
Interval cardio exercises are also fantastic for losing tummy fats. Interval cardio exercises can refer to exercises like swimming or jogging. Interval cardio is where you run or swim as quickly as possible for a period of time and then jog or swim leisurely for about that period of time. This cycle is then repeated for a predetermined number of times.
The above are all great ways to lose your tummy fat. However, weight loss occurs in spurts, and there will be periods of time where you see little to no results. Thus, most importantly, you need to stay motivated to keep to these methods even when you see minimal results.
