Topic: What things can I do to lose my belly fat?
November 17, 2019 / By Mignon Question:
Okay I've been lifting weights for a while now (about a year) and it has really helped as i dropped plenty of weight, im 5'9 and i droped from 223 to 165 since i started. Now I got the nice shape in my arms, legs, and even the chest... but that damn belly just wont go away!... any tips on how to really get rid of it.
Also I know running would help but i got school and work and I really dont have to much time to go running except at night, (and thats not a good idea were i live)... but i do live right next to a swimming pool and was thinking about just going for a swim in the morning but does swimming really help lose belly fat?

You need to keep track of your diet as much as your exercise in order to lose belly fat.
Keep a food journal or keep track of your calorie consumption online. You can find out how many calories you need to consume to loose fat from a BMR/AMR calculator. Just remember to never go below your BMR as it is the base amount of calories your body burns without you actually doing anything, just laying down.
A pound of fat is 3500 calories, so in order to lose 1 pound of fat you need to burn 500 more calories than you consume in a day. Burn away most of your body fat and your jelly belly will go away.
You can use online calculators to determine how much calories you are burning while doing all the exercise you listed. Just make sure you're eating enough the closer you get to your ideal weight the less calories you will be cut from your diet. You will need to create the calorie deficit mainly through exercise

Running, jogging, cycling, swimming, dancing, push ups, sit ups, squats, brisk walking and power walking all help for weight loss but dieting helps more.
You can always eat negative calorie foods to lose weight.
Below is a list of negative calorie foods that will boost your metabolism.
These foods don't actually have negative calories but when you eat these foods raw or slightly cooked your body burns more calories digesting and processing them than what is in the food itself.
For a healthy weight loss add some of these foods to your diet each day. Most of them are full of healthy nutrients.
Negative Calorie Fruits:
Negative Calorie Vegetables:
Chile peppers (hot)

You're asking to do the impossible. Which is remove fat from one area only. Your body don't care if you want to lose fat from your stomach only. Your body will remove fat from all over your body however your genetics see fit. Some people lose fat off their stomach first, some people lose fat off their stomach last. Another virtually impossible thing you want to do is lose fat through exercise. Very difficult and time consuming to do. It is always easier and faster to drop fat by our diet. This ab workout DVD you have will BUILD THE MUSCLE THAT IS UNDER NEATH THE FAT on your stomach. But those ab muscles will never show until the fat is dieted off. Or, if you have a lot longer time schedule, exercised off. For instance, if I have fat arms, and I flex my muscle 1 million times per day, after 6 months guess what? I will still have fat arms. Don't be afraid of eating in a manner that will promote fat loss. THAT is not the same thing as 99% of he diets I see here on Y!A and in real life. THOSE diets suck. Period. It's no wonder people have such a hard time losing fat. Check out this forum. Your question will soon be on page 6. Why? because no one knows how to diet correctly and therefore they're on here asking questions. Now I'm ranting lol sorry anywho, good luck! And if you want a good diet to get that fat off your stomach, feel free to ask

I know exactly where u are coming from because I lost 40 pounds but my belly still looks like ****. I thought that if I hit 170 lbs that the belly would decrease in size, but just my arms and face fat, but some belly went but I wanted more. I am trying this out, but don't know if it is healthy, but I am gonna go buy the SLENDERTONE AB TONER from GNC and use it for 20 days and if it works keep it but if not then return it. They cost $80 to $100 but if you return it you are beating the system. If that sounds good to you then go for it. I am also 18 years old, so if you are in that age category I am glad you started earlier.

All the medics and dieticians say targeted weight loss is unlikely, especially in the waist and belly zones, but I managed it with acai berry. I know they say that pills won't work, however they sure worked for me, and they have been featured on the Rachael Ray Show too. There's a free trial going on currently at http://cenapt.yourdailydiet.info , give it a try, what's the worst that could happen?
