Want To Swap That Belly Fat for a Six Pack?


Most people would love to have a flat, firm tummy but the vast majority of people in our world today have excess abdominal fat. Most people think of this belly fat as simply being ugly, making them self conscious about showing off their body.

The important fact about belly fat is that not only is it ugly, but is also a dangerous risk factor to your health. Scientific research has clearly determined that although it is unhealthy in general to have excess body fat throughout your body, abdominal fat is especially dangerous.

If your waistline measures greater than 40 inches for men, and 35 inches for women you are well on the way to serious health risks. These risks include the ‘big three’; heart disease, cancer and diabetes and other degenerative diseases. Part of the reason this stomach fat is particularly dangerous is that it releases nasty inflammatory molecules and chemicals into your body on a consistent basis.

If you eat a diet that includes a lot of highly processed foods, unhealthy fats, is high in calories and low in fiber this will add to the risks. To top it all off if you live a no exercise lifestyle and spend a lot of time sitting you are in even bigger trouble.

So, what gets rid of extra abdominal fat? The first thing you must understand is that there is absolutely NO quick fix solution; no pills or supplements of any sort that will help you lose your abdominal fat faster. Also, none of the gimmicky abdominal machines will help get rid of this fat either. You can’t spot reduce your stomach fat by using any of these worthless contraptions it simply does not work that way.

The only solution to consistently lose your abdominal fat and keep it off for good is to combine a sound strategic nutritious diet full of unprocessed, whole foods with a properly designed exercise program. It is very important that the program is made up of mostly strength training exercise that will stimulate the necessary hormonal and metabolic response within your body. Both your food intake as well as your training program is important if you are to get this right.

Now the important thing to realize is that just any old exercise program will not necessarily do the trick. The majority of people that attempt to get into a good exercise routine are NOT working out effectively enough to really stimulate the loss of stubborn abdominal fat.

Most people will do your typical boring cardio routines (walking, jogging or cycling) throw in some crunches and side bends, and think that they are doing something useful for reducing their abdominal fat. Then they become frustrated after weeks or months of no results and wonder where they went wrong.

To get the results you want it is important that your exercise program is set up and monitored by a fitness professional. You not only need to learn correct exercise technique but also what level of intensity is needed to stimulate your metabolism.

If this fails to happen you will be not only wasting your time but continuing to expose yourself to serious health risks. Get your program right so it can get to work for you on reducing not only your abdominal fat but your overall body fat percentage as well. You must work at increasing your metabolism (your body’s engine) so it will be burning more fuel 24/7.

If you care about the quality of your life, reducing your abdominal fat should be one of your TOP priorities. There is just no way around it. Besides, a side effect of finally getting rid of all of that excessive ugly abdominal fat is that your stomach will flatten out and become firm and trim. You will be thrilled when you get you first glimpse of that six pack that is hiding underneath.
