I overheard two women talking and one asked the other, “Why is my stomach flabby?” I thought about it and realized that if there is one aspect of a woman’s body that she would like to focus on it would certainly be her stomach or waist region. Women first need to understand that there are no shortcuts to getting rid of belly fat or stomach flab.
“These puppies have nothing to do with this post but I figured everyone would enjoy looking at a picture of some adorable puppies rather than someone else’s stomach flab. I mean I could be wrong you let me know!”
Reasons Your Stomach Looks Flabby
There could be several reasons that you maintain flab in your waist area. For starters you could simply just be eating too much. For women the area around the waist, highs, and thighs are the first place the fats deposits when you eat too many calories. It also could be that you have lost so much weight that you just have a lot of loose skin around your midsection and it needs to be tightened up. Another cause could simply be indigestion and your food is causing a bulge in your lower abdominal region.
Common Myths about Stomach Fat
For some reason people seem to think that doing repetitive sit-ups or abdominal exercises will give you a flatter sexier stomach. However this couldn’t be further from the truth as performing these exercises does not allow you to spot reduce where you lose fat. Core exercises will help give definition to the stomach muscles, but there is still a layer of fat that is covering it up.
Another myth is that you need to do a crazy amount of exercise or cardio so that your belly fat will go away. This is also false and doing an excessive amount of exercise and cardio will only help create a calorie deficit if you maintain a calorie intake low enough for it to affect your weight loss. In other words eating less and burning more calories is the efficient way to burn lose fat “all over.” Don’t think, for a second, that losing fat around your middle is easier for some and harder for others or that you can’t do it.
There is no such thing as a miracle health food or fat burner! Many of the foods that you see promoted are just junk foods that end up helping you gain more weight than you are losing. Don’t waste your money or time on fat-burner pills, supplements.
How to Lose Belly Fat
Do you really want to lose that stomach flab? Are you going to listen if I tell you exactly what to do? Okay, well the first step is actually being willing to do what it takes to lose belly fat so that you can have a sexy stomach. This means that you are going to have to be ready to put in both the time and effort necessary for you to lose the flab since there is no miracle in losing stomach fat.
Secondly, you have to come to terms that getting abs is as simple as eating fewer calories than your body burns. And for as simple as this sounds this is one of the hardest things for people to both believe and grasp. Since one pound of fat is roughly about 3000+ calories in order for you to lose a pound of fat in a week your body must be in a deficit of that amount.
This deficit can come from a combination of calories burned through exercise and the deficit from eating less on a daily basis. Drinking more water and accounting for what you eat through a daily journal are the best ways to lose belly fat. Drinking water helps avoid the empty calories from alcohol and soft drinks while the journal makes your aware of the things you eat and how much so you know what to cut back on.
NOTE: There are no miracle foods or pills that will help you get rid of stomach flab, however if you want a flatter stomach you are simply going to have to create a calories deficit, this can be done through Eat Stop Eat which is a concept of taking a break from eating by Brad Pilon.
