Unless you use surgery or liposuction, you cannot target where your body looses fat. 100 Sit-ups with develop your core muscles but you will not be able to "see" your abs under the fat. So what do you do?
Myth: Doing 100 sit-ups per day will burn belly fat.
Truth: By doing 100 abdominal crunches per day, you will tone your abdominal muscles, but you will not be able to see any definition if your abdominal muscles have too much excess body fat.
Here's why you cannot target where you lose fat
So, what is the solution?
The solution is a combination of proper exercise and a fat loss diet.
If you’re searching for a fat loss diet it usually a result of two things…..either you’ve finally come to a point in your life where you are fed up of feeling tired of having no energy and are way above a healthy weight, or, you’re doctor has given you the option of loosing weight or suffer the risks that go hand in hand with being overweight.
Either way, you need a diet that’s going to work and be easy to stick to.
Let’s face it. If a new diet leaves you feeling starved and deprived and you are irritable and tired all the time, who in their right mind is going to put themselves through that every day? Not the majority of people. Fat loss does not have to be complicated and your don't need injections .
You need to make changes to your eating habits that can be sustained over the rest of your life, not just until you lose the weight. If you feel deprived and are miserable all the time, slowly you’ll start to revert back to your old ways, even though you have lost weight. That’s why so many people regain the weight they’ve lost and then some.
Many diet experts suggest a low fat, low carbohydrate, calorie reduced diet. Sounds great on paper, but putting it into reality is really tough. Most people won’t last more than two weeks on this type of diet and as it has been proven to take 21 days to form a new habit, failure is immanent.
There’s an easy fat loss solution………and it doesn’t involve all kinds of crazy nutritional supplements and diet pills. All you only have to remember three things.
1. Control your blood sugar If you find yourself hungry all the time and have a lack of energy, it’s because your blood glucose levels are fluctuating. High spikes and deep lows in your blood sugar can trigger your body to hold on to fat. Once you can stabilize these levels on a consistent basis, success is guaranteed. A helpful way to stabilize your levels is to make sure you are eating at regular intervals and do not skip meals. This is really hard on your system.
2. Sugar is your enemy! Because of what we mentioned about your blood sugar, you must avoid sugar and simple carbohydrates at all costs. If you make poor food choices and your blood sugar level quickly jumps up, your body will suck up the glucose in those foods and use them as an energy source. It will then hold on to the fat cells for future use. What you want is for your body to use up the previously stored fat cells first. Many foods contain hidden sugars so be vigilant about reading the nutrition content on all the foods you eat. You’ll be really surprised to find the level of sugar in foods that aren’t typically sweet tasting.
3. Eat foods rich in good fat, high protein with complex carbohydrates: These food choices will rev up your metabolism. The benefits of a high metabolism are a high energy level high and the ability to burn calories and fat.
I know that following these three steps sounds deceptively simple, but most times in life the easier things are, the more effective they are. To help you with added weight loss you should also combine an exercise routine with your three step eating plan. By combining the two the weight and fat will quickly come off and you will notice an increase in your overall health.
