When I tell people that I used to be fat, they are surprised.
In this article I will tell you how did I lose weight and get flat abs.
Tip 1: Stay hydrated.
First of all, what you perceive as hunger is often actually thirst.
Some people snack a lot because their bodies are crying out for water.
Also, not drinking enough water can slow your basic metabolic rate, and that means that it is harder to burn the fat on your stomach.
We'll talk more about that later.
Tip 2: Get your rest.
By this, I mean, sleep.
Not only will you be able to perform better after a good night's rest, but it will help your body get on with the business of re sculpting your muscles, wherever they may be.
Tip 3: Get the proper nutrition.
This means not only the right foods, but in the right quantities at the right times.
A tip inside this tip is to try to eat several small meals a day rather than two or three big ones.
Foods should be high in protein.
Tip 4: Exercise your stomach muscles.
Your "stomach muscles" are actually made up mainly of three sets of muscles.
Each one is in a different position, and has a different job to do.
By the same token, developing each set of muscles will require you to do specific exercises for that set of muscles.
The three sets of muscles are the Rectus Abdominis (the six pack down the middle of your body from ribcage to groin), the Transversus Abdominus (TVA) which runs from back to front and holds everything in place, and the Obliques (internal and external) which lie on the side.
Tip 5: Add cardio activity to your fitness program four to six times a week.
Thirty to forty-five minutes would be good.
Again, work your way up.
As great as cardio is, the fat burning effect lasts primarily during the exercise session itself.
Tip 6: Start weight training or other progressive resistance strength training.
As you build muscle over all the parts of your body, you will be creating thousands of little tiny heaters that burn the fat day and night.
You don't have to use super heavy weights.
An explanation of a basic weightlifting workout is a little too much to get into here, but many websites can point you in the right direction.
