Lose Stomach Fat
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

To lose stomach fat, you cannot simply work the muscles in and around the stomach area. You must take a comprehensive approach that lowers the overall fat of your entire body and/or adjust your diet to inspire overall weight loss. Without such an approach, you could squander your effort working muscles that cannot be seen through cutaneous layers of body fat.

Ab machines and workouts are popular staples on late night infomercials and magazine ads. Each of them promises to mold your torso into a six-pack within a certain period of time, regardless of your current fitness levels. These claims are only true if your body fat levels are low enough to allow the muscle tissue beneath the layer of skin around your abs to be seen.

If there is still “belly fat” surrounding those muscles, firming your abs will have little desirable effect on the look of your body. You should begin a cardio regiment in order to burn calories on a daily basis and to bring your body into proper shape. Once you’ve burned enough calories, the fat around your stomach area will begin to shrink.

Men have the most difficult time when trying to lose stomach fat. Due to the nature of the gender, men tend to accumulate fat around the torso area. When losing weight, you will notice fat fading away in everywhere EXCEPT your stomach area. Often, the place with the most fat to lose is that last to shed pounds.

While this can be a very frustrating problem, do not lose inspiration to continue to lose weight. Though you might be the more self conscious of your stomach fat than the bulges on the rest of your body, you will see an overall result if you keep to a regimented cardio/fat burning fitness program. After a time, you won’t feel “fat” any longer.

Once you reach this point, don’t stop! Another realm of fitness accomplishment awaits you. If you cease your fitness regime at this early stage, you’re likely to regain the fat you’ve recently lost. Stopping your fitness regime now means you won’t lose stomach fat, you’ll gain it!

Once you feel you’ve burned away excess fat and calories, you can begin to consider a muscle training program to bring out the “six pack” you’ve been looking for. A variety of muscle training exercises exist, however simple crunches done with an increasing number of reps work wonders for toning muscle areas in and around the stomach. If you desire a truly toned look, consider using weight lifting machines and consulting a local fitness expert to ensure you choose the exercise that is right for you.

Overall, being self conscious of stomach fat is normal and healthy. Try not to become too entranced with your excess stomach fat, as doing so can harm your motivation for accomplishing your fitness goals. Instead, do your best to hone your entire fitness regime into your daily routine. Once you do, your entire body, mind, and soul will reap the benefit, not just your stomach.
