If there's one question in common that every fitness profession
receives, It's " How can I lose fat from my stomach"? This question is a
great one. No matter where you go, movies you see, ads you come across,
you see people...MEN and WOMEN, with a flat midsection. So, I
understand the huge desire to want to look as such. I believe that we
have been conditioned to WANT a flat stomach. It doesn't even have to be
a 6-pack, a toned Mid-section will do. Before I really go into
answering this type of question we first must realize what fat is on our
bodies. Why is it actually there? We perceive it as a disgusting
overhang so we want it gone!
FAT: This wonderful piece of
undesired glory, is energy stored in our body. As we begin to eat, our
bodies become accustomed to wanting more of it. The way the body works
is it stores fat evenly through out the body, It doesn't pick a place,
It doesn't care where it lays, It's carried by the body to a resting
place to be stored for a later burn date. Think of our bodies as
refrigerators. I don't want to go too much into fat cell anatomy but,
fat cells are spread-ed out all over our bodies. No matter how large or
skinny we are, these fat cells will always be there. When a person is
over weight the fat cell are full and are creating new ones to keep up
with the demand of storing fat. When these fat cells are empty, you
simply don't have any fat in them so they don't appear invisible. Your
fat cells will always be there rather you weigh 300 pounds or more and
150 pounds or less. This makes since not to over eat, because when fat
cells are full they will multiply because there are no more room and
will need new fat stores. FAT CAPITALISM LOL
Back to the
question of deleting belly fat. After reading my thoughts from above,
now you should know that fat is stored evenly through out the body.
Since the body doesn't only store fat in the belly area, would it make
since for our body to burn fat only from the belly area?
think about this in a different way. Lets say a woman wants to add size
(fat) to her butt or breast area, while staying slim in other areas. I'm
sure many of you are saying now, her task that she wants to be complete
is impossible because her genes tell here body's fat cells to go here,
and not there, so she remains with smaller breast and butt while the
rest of her body gains fat. With other women it's the complete opposite.
Simply, one can not spot reduce fat, just as one can not add fat in the
body to certain areas. Our bodies don't work in this way. We may think
we only carry most of our fat in our stomach but in actuality it's every
where. You simply have more fat cells in your belly. One may have small
legs, with a big belly. One may have a small belly with flabby arms.
One may have flabby legs with a large belly and small arms with a small
face. I know this information is hard to take because it is something
that many people say. You simply just need to understand that this is
fact. But, I wont let you down. I'm going to also tell you a few things
you can do right now to lose belly fat.
Yes, I said belly fat.
Did you catch that? The term used "Belly Fat" is a marketing term. One
of the most over used terms available in the fitness industry. Why?
Because no matter how much people here it, they will always hope and
pray that this miracle pill, or diet plan that claims to lose "belly
fat" will work for them. You've seen their so-called none biased
scientific claims, their customer testimonies with the paid actor listed
in the bottom screen. The term "Belly Fat" is an emotional marketing
term. Nothing more. If you want to lose belly fat you must lose fat
evenly through out your body That's it, It will come from the order it
was stored in your body and you will slim down evenly. Have you ever
seen a stage ready body builder will a 6 pack and a fat face?
Losing Fat: If you want to lose fat evenly you must listen to my next
words and apply them into your everyday lives. You must forget what you
thought you knew and listen to the truth that I and every other fitness
profession has tried to explain to you. Sorry if this sounds harsh but
this is the information that just is. Nutrition is the most important
aspect. It's # 1, with out eating correctly you stand NO CHANCE in your
"Belly Fat" loss battles. Here's your war, what you eat is just about
100% of your weight loss. Let me show you a quick example below.
Fat loss = The number of calories you burn is higher than the calories
you take in. ( BURNED 2000 calories VS. EAT: 1700 calories = 300
Calories that will be taken from your body. )
gentlemen, it's that simple. So if you put this into practice, you'll
burn more calories eating healthy than you ever could spending hours in a
gym while eating junk food.
Fact for your knowledge; "HOW TO BURN BELLY FAT" is this number 1 most searched term on Google....Marketing?
