There's been so much information in the media and in diet books about the role that cortisol plays in the storage and disposal, or burning, of belly fat. If you haven't read the research or done much investigating on your own, you may not understand what cortisol is what it does and how to break the cortisol cycle? We continue to eat more than enough food, so that fat is never used as an energy source. Like the situation with stress, cortisol and belly fat, insulin resistance is cyclical. The cycle goes something like this:
* Excess belly fat makes your body resistant to insulin.
* Insulin resistance causes your body to store more belly fat
On the Belly Fat Diet plan, you'll be getting a great deal of vitamin C from your diet, which will be full of vitamin C-dense foods. But you'll also be taking a vitamin C supplement twice per day to give your body the extra C it needs to burn the belly fat you already have. This vitamin C supplementation is essential to turbo-charging the belly fat loss in the first few weeks. As an added bonus, you'll be boosting your immune system through both the vitamin C and your antioxidant-rich diet.
You must combine resistance training to build muscle, intense cardio to burn calories and targeted ab exercise to firm and tighten your mid-section and stomach area. There is more to life than exercise and diet... your body is a dynamic organism, reacting and adapting to all outside and inside influences. Therefore, don't sabotage your exercise and diet efforts with an unhealthy lifestyle and low self-image. Drinking, smoking, stress, poor sleeping habits, low self-image, etc. all affect your body and can contribute to the accumulation of belly fat. While there is probably room for improvement in all the areas of exercise, diet and lifestyle... there is usually one area that is more of a problem than the others. To start seeing RESULTS for your efforts faster... focus on your biggest problem area first!
Make the habit of drinking 10-12 large glasses of water daily. You will have much more energy and you will be able to control your hunger better, you will boost your metabolism, and you will simply lose your belly fat quicker. If you do not like plain water so take seltzer or mineral water with some lemon or lime juice. Green tea that is sugar-free is also a good choice and may even boost up the fat loss method more.
You should start eating 4-5 mini meals in a day instead of taking 3 main and larger meals. It would help you to lose belly fat as we will be eating less during main and larger meals. Small and regular interval foods also enhance metabolism as body needs more energy. Starting your day with rich and healthy breakfast and ending it with poor dinner.
There are many reasons why morning exercise tends to work great for fat loss, but the greatest two are below:
* Different studies have proved that people who have the habit of working out first thing in the morning run to stick with a fitness program longer as compare to people who exercise later on in the day. In fact, after only a couple of weeks, many people become "addicted" to this morning exercise sessions because it makes them feel so pleasing and great for the rest of the day.
* Doing some work before the first food of the day is a very common fat loss method among fitness competitors, bodybuilders and models
Both healthy diet and cardiovascular exercises are two key elements for successful weight loss, but your commitment to patiently work toward the success of losing belly fat is the key determining factor to get a flat stomach.
