If you want to lose weight by cooking and preparing your own food and meals, then definitely watch the following video. Chloe shares some valuable tips on how you can prepare your own meals and what meals to prepare to help you lose weight and burn fats easily.
If you don’t have the time, or you prefer eating anything you want and still lose weight, then perhaps you want to check out AlvinChua91.com instead. He focuses on teaching about macro nutrients and caloric deficit to help you lose weight without actually worrying too much about the exact food you’re eating.
Getting a toned stomach area generally takes a two step approach –
1) Burning off the surrounding fats on top of your abdominal area
2) Building the abdominal muscles and strengthening them
If you have a high body fat percentage as a woman (such as 30% or higher), then focus on interval cardio to achieve the goal 1 first. Once you get down to around 23 to 25%, then you want to do a mix of both interval cardio as well as the above abdominal exercises to get a toned stomach area.
Most women store fats around their thighs and their belly area. In this post, I’m going to be sharing with you the best tips I’ve personally found effective in getting rid of stomach fat and having a slim waistline.
First of all, cut down on the amount of carbohydrates and simple sugars you’re taking in your diet. Did you know that it’s carbohydrates and simple sugars which make you gain weight, not fatty food? It’s not common knowledge apparently. Fatty food sound like it will make you fat because of its name, but that’s not the case. And that is why you see women who cut out ‘fatty’ food from their diet still look the same over the years! It’s ineffective! If you want to lose stomach fat, then focus on cutting out what matters the most – carbs and simple sugars from your diet!
Second of all, focus on abs exercises AFTER you’ve lost majority of the fat around your body. Without losing the fats, no amount of abdominal or stomach exercises will help your stomach look better. Get rid of the fat first. Get rid of the fats quickly by focusing on bodyweight, compound, circuit exercises. A great example is interval sprinting. You will sprint a short distance e.g. 10 to 20 metres and back. Then rest for a short moment e.g. a few seconds and then repeat this cycle over and over.
Third of all, never give up! It’s surprising that the number 1 reason most women fail to lose weight has nothing to do with their diet or exercise. They simply did not keep at their weight loss efforts long enough (at least a few months to a year) to see results!
The second biggest reason women fail to lose weight is because they did not get a mentor.
If your problem is a mentor, then check out the following video on losing belly fat:
First of all, you need to get into a calorie deficit. Basically, this means that you need to burn off more calories through exercising and metabolism than you take in through food and drinks! This is simple mathematics. If you do not burn off more calories than you take in, it does not matter how healthy you eat. You will still weigh the same! Want to be skinnier? Then make sure to get into a caloric deficit! Of course, remember not to ‘starve’ yourself, because getting into a caloric deficit is a two part equation – exercising and dieting. Also increase the intensity of your exercises and don’t starve until you become a skeleton.
Second of all, when decreasing your calories over time to get into a calorie deficit, reduce those calories mainly from simple sugars and carbohydrates in your diet. These are the biggest culprits that cause you to gain weight.
Third of all, use this trick – drink a glass of water after meal. Many women accidentally mistake thirst for hunger, and then eat too much. To prevent that, take a glass of water AFTER your meal! (Make sure not to take before, or you will feel bloated, eat too little during that meal, and start snacking and before you know it, your calorie intake will be going out of control!).
