Let’s talk about everyone’s favorite subject, weight loss!
We all have stubborn areas on our body where we would love to see progress, but for some reason, the fat just stays on. Lots of my clients come to me wanting to lose belly fat specifically.
There is no magic pill that is going to make your fat slide right off (I know, it’s sad!). But there are lots of things you can do–and once you’ve figured out the perfect combo for your body, you can start to see some results.
As a personal trainer and nutritionist for over 10 years, I have personally guided people down the path to blasting their belly fat and finding their ideal shape. I’m excited to help you along the same path–now, let’s blast some fat!
Why Does Belly Fat Not Go Away?
There are so many reasons your belly fat could be overstaying its welcome around your midsection. The first questions I always ask are:
- What foods and drinks are you putting into your body?
- What does your exercise routine look like?
If you are putting junk into your body, your body is going to kind of feel like junk! Belly fat can start to fade when your diet is on point and clean. We’ll go over clean eating options in just a moment.
If you aren’t working out regularly your body won’t make much progress. However, even people who work out regularly don’t always experience fat loss.
That could be because the workouts aren’t doing their job anymore. Maybe you aren’t giving it your all, or maybe your workouts just aren’t diverse enough for belly fat loss results.
We’ll go over the best workouts for fat loss in just a moment, but first, let’s talk nutrition.
What to Eat to Lose Belly Fat ?
Processed foods and sugars are not going to help you lose belly fat. Sugary sodas and high-fat burgers or chips will only stunt your progress, so cut those out quickly.
Clean eating is the best way to lose belly fat – I’m talking veggies at every meal and drinking lots of water!
Try to fill your diet up with these clean choices:
- Fatty fish, like salmon and tuna
- Green tea
- Lean meat, like turkey
- Whey protein, like we use in IdealShake
I like to use the IdealBurn supplement to keep me on track with my belly fat loss goals. IdealBurn is designed to support your transition into a healthier lifestyle by promoting a healthy metabolism and fat oxidation, while also improving your focus and wakefulness. Try it out and see if it works for you!
Workouts to Lose Belly Fat
We gotta get your body moving and sweating! Your workouts don’t have to be the same every single day–in fact, you should be switching things up.
That’s why the 15 Day IdealShape for Life Challenge has different workouts every day–we want to work out different parts of your body in different ways.
If you’re looking to try something new, try out a high-intensity interval workout, or HIIT.
The idea is to push yourself really hard for one short interval, take a short break, and then go at it again. 20 minutes of HIIT workouts per day could help you see some belly fat loss progress!
Fat loss can be a tough subject–I know. I’ve seen people succeed using my tips to eat clean and switch up your workouts. I know you can succeed!
