"Buy this brand new thing-a-ma-bob and you'll have six pack abs in no time... for only 4 easy payments of $39.95"! LOL! Aren't you tired of seeing these freaking commercials promoting all of these weird ab contraptions?! Well, if you are, that's a good thing, and that's because THEY DON'T WORK! To flatten your stomach and lose belly fat, ab exercises WILL NOT GET THE JOB DONE. It takes a myriad of other things that are not even ab muscle related that will flatten your tummy. In this article, you'll discover 5 powerful things that are sure to get you a flat stomach in no time... seriously.
Really quick, before I get into those 5 things, I just wanted to talk to you about something. My friend, please understand that abdominal exercises do not remove belly fat. Ab exercises are good for strengthening your core and developing ab muscles... they do not remove the fat on top of those muscles. This is a VERY common misconception for those trying to lose belly fat. If you are already knew this, then please don't think I was trying to insult your intelligence, I just want to clear up this common misconception for those who didn't know.
Also, in order to get "ab muscles" to show, your body fat percentage needs to be around 10% and below. Therefore, if your goal is to get ab muscles, you have to focus more on doing things that will burn off fat (which I'll talk about below) as opposed to doing simple weight loss tactics.
Alright, here are 5 ways to get rid of belly fat...
1. Eat a power breakfast... Eating breakfast to being with is a very smart move if you are trying to lose weight, burn fat, and build muscle. Your body needs breakfast considering the fact that it is basically starved from you not eating since the night before. Not getting breakfast is a surefire way to slow your metabolism down.
Now, I'm sure you took notice of the word I mentioned above... "power". What this means is that you have to eat a breakfast that is LOADED with all types of beneficial nutrients. Nutrients such as protein, fiber, and healthy fat are strongly recommended to include with your breakfast. The reason why is because getting these nutrients first thing in the morning will keep you from getting strong hunger pangs later in the day, they will help in boosting your metabolism, they will keep your digestive system running smooth, and so much more!
2. Get more protein... Getting more protein in your diet means faster fat loss, faster muscle gain, you'll feel less hungry during the day, and so much more! Oh, and please make sure that you get protein from healthy sources (such as fish, eggs, and lean chicken breast to name a few).
3. Detoxify... I'm not trying to scare you, but pollutants, toxins, and parasites can be living in your body! These nasty things will cause problems with your digestive system, they can add pounds on you, they can keep you fat, and they can cause diseases! Solution? Detoxify! You can detoxify naturally by drinking organic apple cider vinegar, doing #4 below, and getting more antioxidants in your diet.
4. Increase H20 intake... Water is essential for life... and it is essential to flatten your stomach. Drinking more water DOES NOT make you bloated! In fact, drinking more water actually gets rid of bloating. The key here is that if you are drinking more water, you also have to decrease your sodium intake as well (which should be done anyhow for a TON of health reasons).
Also, drinking more water will increase your metabolism, enhance your digestive system, naturally detox (as mentioned in #3 above), help in building lean muscle tissue, increase energy level, and so much more!
5. Naturally boost your metabolism through dieting... If you boost your metabolism, you'll lose fat, if you boost your metabolism through dieting, you'll lose fat... LIGHTNING FAST! The reason why is because increasing your metabolic rate through nutrition is something that the body responds the best with. Sure doing all those other things that will increase your metabolic rate are important to do, but doing this with dieting basically guarantees you'll have that flatter belly you've always wanted very quickly!
And if you want to EASILY Melt Away Belly Fat FAST and permanently lose 9 pounds every 11 days, then I highly recommend the "calorie shifting diet" from Fat Loss 4 Idiots...
