Topic: Losing weight in a month?
September 17, 2019 / By Neil Question:
So my homecoming dance is in a month and I want to get a tight dress this year because I've never worn one and I want to be different this year. I'm 5'8" and 135 lbs. I'm certainly not fat but I can improve especially around my midriff area. I have a little belly fat and some on my obliques and I want to tone up and lose it in a month. Any tips? I'm already starting to eat healthier and I run occasionally but I plan to daily now and I plan to workout 5 days a week. Please give me some tips on losing fat around my midsection in time for this dance!! Thanks so much :)
If you could leave any workouts or tips for flattening my stomach please leave them below! Thanks :)

I can definitely help. First and foremost, you have to have a clean diet. Without a proper diet, you will have a hard time losing weight. Diet makes up roughly 90% of the battle. Don't be that person at the gym who busts their tail off yet allows the hard work to go down the drain b/c they eat like crap.
That being said, what foods to eat?
Stick to a more lean protein/green veggie diet. Lean protein sources include chicken breast, turkey breast, fish, egg whites, lean beef such as sirloin, cottage cheese etc. The majority of your carbs should come from leafy greens such as asparagus, broccoli, kale, salad etc. Green veggies are very low in carb, full of fiber and are slower digesting.
Stay away from refined carbs. Refined carbs are your white breads, white pasta etc. Eat whole grains but in moderation such as brown rice. Even though brown rice is superior to white rice, you still need to monitor your carbs so have these grains more on workout days for energy and adjust accordingly.
Workout wise, a combination of free weights and cardio 3-4 times a week is optimal. Weight lifting helps burn more calories at rest.
