Topic: How to lose lower belly fat?
July 17, 2019 / By Colm Question:
I have a fat pouch I'd like to lose for the summer. I'm 5ft 2 and weigh 105 pounds.iv heard that you can't lose fat from just one area but Iv been running 2.5-3 miles every day for a month and all it did was tone up my legs and I lost leg fat. I'm a vegan so I eat healthy. What excercises should I be doing or how many calories should I be eating to achieve this goal?

jogging is an excellent exercise because it let you lose weight
evenly throughout your whole body. If you want to lose weight in
specific areas, you should target them with exercises. If they are
your problem areas, they will be very difficult to tone. You will have
to work double on them. The best approach is this:
1. Lower/control your daily calorie intake (control for normal
weight, lower for overweight).
2. Run/jog to lower your overall body fat percentage.
3. Target your problem areas with exercises.
an excellent exercise you can do it at home in front of your TV:
Attach a couple of ankle weights to your ankles.
Lay down on the floor or any other hard
surface. Use an exercise rug so as not to bruise your spine off the
floor. Put your hands behind your head, or spread them wide. Lift
your legs perpendicular to the floor, stop for a second. Lower the
legs down. Repeat ten times, stop. Turn on your stomach, raise on
your hands, with the lower part of the body on the floor, as if
trying to look at the ceiling. Turn back, do another set. Do three
sets with ten repetitions every day. In a week, you should see the
results. Once you are used to the exercise, and your muscles won't
get stronger anymore, add weight to your ankle weights. Remember:
repeating the same easy exercise many times won't help. Do it only
with the weights. Simple leg raises do not work. Use weights,
they do wonders. Stretch your spine between repetitions. Be careful
not to go for too heavy weight at once. Do not increase the weights
continuously, stop when your abs are defined - too heavy weights
will lead to injuries.
Look into some ab workouts.. Running will help you a lot, but like you said it toned your legs and not your stomach.. work them abs and you'll get rid of the pouch in like a week in a half!
I used to have big problems with over-weight, but am getting in better shape now. Here's a good site I found that really helped. It gave me great workouts and diet tips and showed me what I was doing wrong before...there's even lots of free articles on the site...
Good luck to you!
you have to do some cardio to lose fat. Therefore you are gonna need a place to run. Also try doing situps and crunches to tone your abs a little
