I know it doesn't sound as glamorous as some exotic new pill from the la la land of medical weight loss where you don't have to do any work and you can eat whatever you want.
But if you want to lose belly fat fast, there is no faster way that is safer than good nutrition and some good old exercise!
The most important thing you can do is change your diet!
What you put inside your mouth will be your greatest ally or greatest enemy in your quest to rid your gut of its excess padding.
I know you have heard of all kinds of diets and different terms for people who eat different foods IE Vegan, Vegetarian, Octo -etc, etc. Today I want to introduce you to a term you many not of heard of before;
A natural hygienist is someone that believes that fasting, dieting and other lifestyle changes are all that is required to prevent and treat disease.
Let me explain it like this:
You get a cut. Do you make the skin grow back together? Nope, your body has a system in place that clots the blood to prevent you from loosing more. Then the blood hardens creating a protective coating we call a scab. After a few days/week the scab falls off and the repair has been done.
Doctors put band aids on the cuts and may even give you stitches to help hold the cut together but they do nothing to grow the skin back together, your body does that, your true doctor.
Now don't get me wrong, you cut your arm off and your going to NEED a doctor. Doctors are essential for helping us heal correctly when it comes to injury but when it comes to being internally ill
there is no doctor in the world that can do what your body is capable of.
So if my body is capable of curing illness why doesn't it?
Image that you are pushing a car. You are on a flat surface and even though the car is heavy you can push it and it will roll.
After you get rolling it is easier to keep rolling by continually applying a small amount of energy unlike the great surge of energy you needed to start the car rolling. This is what eating healthy and exercising represents. Takes a kick to get going in the right direction but its easier once you get started.
Now imagine the car is running and its in reverse. Even though you are still pushing you are not strong enough to resist its force and so the car starts to go in the other direction.
In this example you are the healthy you. The car is your body that you are trying to push forward (the further forward you can push it the longer you live). Going in reverse is getting fat/sick and dying early caused by eating things that are not our food.
When your car is moving forward your body is running optimally. Although sickness may still occur it will be sparse and usually will not last long because your body will be better prepared to deal with it.
The reason that we get sick today for the most part in our society is simply from what we put in our mouths. The diseases of today were virtually non-existent before the industrial age.
When you put real food in your body you get real results!
Have you ever heard of eating clean? A lot of athletes are known to eat clean before a big event. Why do you think they do that? Its because they know that their performance will be hindered if they do not eat well.
Well the same goes for you. Eating healthy natural food allows your body to perform at its best even if your not a athlete.
Your body is constantly trying to be the best it can be.
The further away from true health that you are the faster your body brings you back into shape.
The closer you get to being as healthy as you can be the slower the changes.
This is why people who are obese can loose a lot of weight quickly while it takes forever to get rid of that half pound of fat hanging onto your belly. When you are in great danger your body works quickly to save your life. The half pound of fat is a healthy reserve and your body doesn't see it as life threatening as obesity.
So to lose belly fat fast...
Stop eating the fat.
What do you think of when you hear the word exercise?
I'm guessing that whatever it is your probably not doing it. Why do you think that is?
If you think of doing something unpleasant for exercise then where is the motivation in doing it? Does the thought of going to the gym make you feel ill? Then why do it?
Here is a new idea!
Do something physical that you enjoy doing!
If you enjoy doing something your more likely to do it.
How to know when to exercise?
Are you ready for the answer? Wait for it....the answer is....When you feel like it!
Yep that's right. If you are eating healthy you are going to start dropping weight without doing anything. I personally try to help people to eat correctly first before we ever start talking about exercising.
If you are not eating correctly, and you exercise regularly you are actually giving yourself a double whammy! First you eat something bad which your body has to fight and then on top of that you bombard your body with a workout that it must recover from! Ouch!
When you start eating healthy you are going to start feeling like exercising. This is your cue!
The best exercise?
The one that you will do! But if I had to actually mention a couple of exercises I would say rebounding (jumping on a trampoline). Its fun and safe and wears you the hell out! Engages your whole body. Here is a nice size trampoline from Amazon that has an assist bar for a reasonable price.
The next exercise I recommend is any body weight exercise. Push ups, sit-ups, bridges, etc.
I would also highly recommend Tai Chi. Tai Chi is sneaky, you don't really feel like you are doing anything and then the next day you wake up and your arms hurt. They hurt because you were holding them in the air for half an hour but because this is not a exercise that we are used we didn't really realize that we were exercising! Love it!
So let's wrap this up!
To lose belly fat fast eat healthy foods like tender leafy greens and fruits. I have a free weight loss program here that can guide you.
Exercise when our bodies tell us its time and then do something you love to do!
