There are many 'lose weight fast' diets available, and they all promise you six pack abs, flat stomachs, and that you will be able to obtain results quickly, safely and without much work. Some actually state that you can do this without even exercising. This, naturally, is a load of media-enhanced hype. Yes, you have to diet; yes, you need to exercise; and yes, finally, you have to put some work into it. Otherwise, you will not get results. So, what's the greatest method to lose weight? If you look at diet, in addition to exercise, then you already know the answer:
If your diet is filled with sugars, starches, junk food and processed meats, than it will likely be difficult to lose weight. Your body has become dependent on these synthetic sugars, and thus, stores the fat beneath your skin, and in tough to process areas. As your body is starving for a healthy diet, it will not use these fat reserves, and they remain right where your body left them, regardless of the exercising you do!
Instead you should consider a diet of raw, organic fruits and vegetables and cut down on your meat intake. Now, I am not saying to become a vegetarian or vegan, but consuming considerable amounts of beef and pork can make your body constantly store the cholesterol and fats that are within the meat.
If you want to lose belly fat and have 6 pack abs, you should eat a balanced diet and drink lots of water. It is recommended to drink at least six to eight glasses of water a day.
Eating right isn't enough: You must also eat when your body is capable of processing the food. Everyone needs sleep, and your bodily functions are no different. It must go through a rest-phase for the systems to become somewhat stabilized. If you are continuously active during the day, then it's best not to eat anything past 7:30 in the evening. This will give your body optimal time to digest the food you've eaten throughout the day.
If you have a night-shift schedule, then reverse the order, and attempt to not eat anything about 3 hours before you go to bed. Although working night shift is very hard on your body, your system adapts to your routine, and sleeps when your body sleeps.
How to proceed when you need a snack: Instead of grabbing for a chocolate bar or chips, grab an apple or banana. Raw, organic fruits and vegetables with low-fat dressings are great for snacks and will cut down on your fat consumption.
Dun-dun-dun! Exercise. That dreaded word. No one truly likes it, but the truth of the matter is that you need to exercise. If you do not burn off the excess sugars and energy your body intakes daily, your body will just store it for later use. In the end, it knows, from good experience, that occasionally you do not eat properly, and therefore, it needs more energy; guess where that energy will come from? That's right, the fat!
No, you don't to join a gym; and no, you don't to workout so hard that you ache; think about instead, a few of these choices:
1. Walk whenever you can: Instead of using the elevator, use the stairs. Take the dog out for his nightly walk. Take the kids to the park. There are so many chances for you to walk, that really, there is no reason you should not.
2. Bike: Bicycle exercise is great for giving you the six pack abs you would like. It is an easy exercise that does not involve any gear. Lay on your back, put your feet in the air, and act like you are riding a bike. How much simpler can it get?
3. Exercise Ball Crunch: Yet another excellent and straightforward exercise that will help provide you with your desired 6 pack abs. The only equipment that you will need is an exercise ball. Exercise balls can be bought at most department stores like Wal-Mart, Kmart, Target and they can be purchased on the internet as well. What now ?? Well, bend forward on the ball. That's about it. So simple.
Obviously, this is not the whole list, but it will give you a start to giving you six pack abs, shedding abdominal fat, and becoming a healthy person. Ensure that you ask your doctor before you make modifications to your diet or physical activities. Eat healthy, exercise, and you too, can easily lose weight easily and safely.
