Do you want to get rid of that fat stomach?
So what works?
With the endless advice from books and web pages and TV commercials on how to lose the belly fat, I keep coming across people who have little to no success.
With all of the advice out there you would think that everybody would look like a celebrity.
First we need to clear up a big myth.
Abs are made in the kitchen not in the gym.
What do you need to do to lose that fat stomach then?
What you need is a solid diet strategy that involves a healthy diet plan. Changing your diet is crucial because you can do crunches/sit-ups till you’re blue in the face but you won’t get that toned stomach until you change how you eat.

Here are some tips to help you burn that fat off your waistline:
- Cut sugar out of your diet.
If you don’t understand why sugar will make you fat then read Insulin: The Fat Hormone to see why.
- Stop skipping breakfast.
We live in a fast paced society and breakfast is the easiest meal to skip. You are only doing yourself harm by skipping breakfast. This is the most crucial meal of the day to get your metabolism started and out of conservation mode from sleeping all night.
- Eat 5-6 meals a day.
Nothing will help more to keep your metabolism fired up and burning calories than eating several small meals a day. Skipping meals only sends your body into fat storage mode to conserve energy and slows down your metabolism.
- Cut out the bad carbs.
We are a lazy nation and the food industry loves to cater to lazy people. We fill ourselves with processed foods that don’t require cooking and then wonder why we have fat bellies. Stop and look at all of the junk you eat everyday. Cut out those bad calories and start eating less high Glycemic carbs.
- Move your body.
You don’t have to be a gym rat to slim down that waistline. There are plenty of things you can do right at home to burn calories. Go for a walk or play wii with the kids and stop lying there on the couch watching reruns of lost.
Life is short so stop wasting it by doing nothing.
