Most people do all the wrong things when it comes to losing fat.
I used to be one of them.
But I don’t want you to follow the same mistakes. These are some of the easiest ways you can include in your daily life which will help you burn your belly fat faster.
1. Burn More Calories Than You Consume
Everyone needs to consume a certain amount of calories per day, to simply maintain their current weight. That number can vary, depending on factors such as age, genetics, weight, height, and activity level. But there are ways to calculate what that number is for you.
You can go to calculator.com and find calorie counter on their website to see your calories requirements.
Once you know how many calories you need to consume to simply maintain your current weigh all you need to do is create a caloric deficit. Subtract about 300-500 calories from that number, ideally from carbs or by simply increasing your workout intensity, so you burn 300-500 more calories, instead.
Either way, you’ll still be putting yourself at a caloric deficit, which is what you want to start losing stubborn belly fat.
And when you hit a plateau (which happens every few weeks or so) simply subtract another few hundred calories
from carbs, or simply increase your workout intensity.
You will continue to lose stubborn belly fat. Don’t drop carbs too low though, or else it will be counter-productive.
Simply start by consuming the number of calories per day, needed to simply maintain your current weight for the
first and then start dropping calories. Stick to this formula, and you will lose all your stubborn belly fat before you know it.
2. Eat the Right Foods – (at the Right Times)
Once you create a caloric deficit, you’re also gonna have to eat the proper foods, at the right times, if you want to maximize your fat loss results.
You want to follow a nutrition plan with a proper macro-nutrient breakdown. Since that will guarantee that you’re getting the proper amount of nutrients in your body, to support your goals, each and every day instead of simply getting all your daily calories from foods like pizza!
So you want to make sure that you’re getting enough protein, carbs, and a good amount of healthy fats in your diet, on a daily basis. The timing of certain foods, as well as the types of carbs you consume, is also an important factor when it comes to losing belly fat – FAST!
3. Train Intensely
If you want to lose fat FAST and get the body of your dreams in the shortest amount of time possible, you’re gonna have to EARN IT by being intense, and training HARD – every time you workout. Simply showing up isn’t enough.
By following a proper workout program, you will lose fat, and also build some lean muscle mass in the process.
That new muscle will help you burn even more FAT throughout the day even while you sleep.
Also, incorporating High-Intensity Interval Training into your workouts, while limiting your rest times between sets, to 1 minute or less will help you lose even more fat, and burn more calories throughout the day.
So always train hard, and be sure to make every workout count.
4. Always Stay Hydrated
How much water do YOU drink in a day?
Truth is, most people don’t drink enough water throughout the day.
If you’re not drinking a minimum of about 1 gallon of water a day, which is equal to 16 cups then, I hate to break it to you, but you’re not drinking enough and your fat loss goals and overall health will suffer as a result.
Now, that may sound like A LOT of water, especially if you’re not used to drinking that much. But It’s not, and when you’re eating properly and training hard, your body will definitely need a lot of water to function efficiently.
So staying hydrated throughout the day will definitely help you lose stubborn belly fat, by helping the body metabolize your fat storages, as well as act as a natural appetite suppressant so you don’t end up eating more than you can chew.
Water also helps your body get rid of toxins, and there’s also a big laundry list of other important benefits that come along with drinking a lot of water.
So replace all of the other beverages you consume throughout the day with water and make sure to get a minimum of 1-2 gallons (3.5 to 7.5 liter) per day.
5. Recover More, Stress Less
The final and a most important step that many people ignore when trying to lose fat is proper recovery.
Many people think that the more you workout and the longer you workout the better your results will be, and the more fat you will lose.
Luckily, that’s not the case so you don’t have to spend all day working out.
The opposite is actually true. When it comes to working out, quality is much more important than quantity.
But what you probably don’t realize is that most of the results won’t come while working out but instead, while your body is at rest, or even asleep.
That’s why it’s so important that you give your body the proper amount of time to recover between workouts. You should always aim to get at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep.
You also want to work on managing your stress levels.
Since stress produces a hormone called Cortisol, and that hormone will tell your body to store fat, instead of burning it.
So less stress equals more fat loss.
In summary, burn more calories than you consume, eat the right foods at the right times, always train intensely and aim to drink a minimum of 1-2 gallons per day, and always recover.
If you follow all those 5 steps, consistently you’ll lose your stubborn belly fat – FAST.
