How do I burn stomach fat?

How do I burn stomach fat? Topic: How do I burn stomach fat?
April 26, 2019 / By Cadogan
Question: I'm like 100 pounds and 5'1. That's a healthy weight, and I work out at least 4 times a week, especially ab workouts. I hear that working out doesn't get rid of fat though, it just builds muscle under the fat, and to get rid of the fat you have to do cardio? I just want to get rid of this fat; what are some good exercises to burning stomach fat (not ab workouts, I already do a lot of those)? Please tell me how long I have to do these exercises as well. Thanks! :)

calories in, calories out. Eat less calories, exercise more, or a combination of both. You cant spot loss, only reduce overall body fat %. For a woman I really wouldnt go below 13% body fat though. Some would even recommend higher, like around 15-20%.

You burn fat on your stomach by losing fat overall. There is no quick or easy way. There are many sensible things you can do that will make a tremendous difference over the long term if you need to lose weight. It can be done in a healthy way. This is what has worked for me. Keeping a food journal really does help. It will give you a much better sense of how much you are eating, and when, and why. Make a few additional small changes - walk everywhere, always use stairs instead of elevators, walk on escalators, get up and move around at least once an hour if your work or your life in general is sedentary, walk every day, use a pedometer. Walking 10,000 steps a day is a really good idea. Build up to a long brisk walk everyday, or most days. Be more active and watch less TV and spend less time on the computer. Buy one piece of exercise equipment to have at home and be strict with yourself about using it. Sometimes you can find mini-steppers or exercise bikes at second hand stores and thrift stores for just a few dollars. Start a weight lifting routine. Join a gym. Possibly you can find one that has someone who specializes in weight lifting programs for beginners. Weight lifting will increase your metabolism as well as improve posture and appearance overall. Even if you can't get to the gym you can work out at home using things around the house. Invest in a good weight training book. The Dummies series actually has a good one. In terms of diet, cut out or reduce things like junk food, pop, fat, fast food. Eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meat, fish. Particularly if you choose a vegetarian lifestyle include natural peanut butter, hummus, dried fruit and nuts. Pay close attention to getting the nutrients your body needs to be healthy. Make your portion sizes smaller. Use a smaller plate - in our society we have become accustomed to thinking that we need a large plate of food at every meal, and we don't. About quarter of your plate of food should be protein and at least half of it should be veggies. Learn to count calories. At your current weight and activity level, you may possibly need about 2000 calories or more to maintain your current weight. So you will lose weight at a reasonable and healthy rate if you cut back to about 1600 or 1700 calories a day. Eat small amounts frequently, rather than three large meals. Never skip breakfast. Include some protein in your breakfast. It will help get you through the day. Drink plenty of water, at least 8 big glasses of water a day, and more if it is very hot, if you sweat a lot, or if you are exercising intensely, and eliminate fruit juices. Fruit juices have too many calories, so get your vitamins from fresh fruit, not the juice. You will begin to see changes in your body. Check out websites about nutrition, exercise, weight training, etc. Here are a few helpful links. http://www.nutrawatch.com/ http://www.caloriesperhour.com/ http://www.helpguide.org/life/healthy_eating_diet.htm http://www.wikihow.com/Lose-Weight-the-Healthy-Way http://weightloss.about.com/cs/fitness/a/aa011503a.htm http://www.webmd.com/fitness-exercise/features/no-weight-workout?page=4

First of all doing ab workouts does build muscle, but when you build muscle it is burning the fat near where the muscle lays. Building a good abdominal muscle structure is an amazing way to start to lose stomach fat. Once you build a little muscle it will give you nice shape and tone. Then like you said cardio is important of course because that will make you lose inches, and burn fat off your tummy. Make sure you eat frequent small healthy meals like almonds or an apple then meat and veggies for your staple meals and you should do great. Good luck!!!

Food dosent burn fat muscle does. you can increase your metabolism by eating more often. Not more just 6-8 smaller meals throughout the day. Holy crap you need to eat for calories. 1000 isnt enouph to feed the muscle you have. Id say at the least go 1500..

Cardio is the best way to get rid of body fat. Maybe up your pace when you run, or run and then do a walk on the tread mill at a steep incline for 45 minutes.

it sounds like your skin just stretched out when you were younger too much to stretch back. you could try some skin tightening creme but you might end up having to get the skin removed...not a big deal and probably not horribly expensive...but im pretty sure insurance wont cover that. anyways...you can try the creme or go see what your doctor recommends =] hope i helped!! =]
