Trying to burn belly fat fast is not a tough thing to do, though it can seem that way if you are trying to go about it the wrong way. This articles will show you some simple ways you can start to burn belly fat without jumping on the next crazy diet bandwagon or using an infomercial gimmick that promises easy results in just "6 minutes per day".
How to Burn Belly Fat Fast
Tip #1 - Avoid "quick fix" diets that promise overnight results
There are a lot of different "quick fixes", but what you really want to avoid is using a "crash diet". A crash diet essentially means that you try to starve yourself by purposely eating as little as possible in hopes it will help you burn fat. For example, many people try to eat only one meal a day and try to maintain this as a lifestyle. A crash diet will only cause you more grief then results. It will put your body into starvation mode and crash your metabolism. You may lose some belly fat but in the long run your metabolism will slow down and you will lose muscle mass. This makes it even harder to burn belly fat.
Don't use a crash diet. Try to eat 5-6 smaller meals in a day. This will keep you full, and will prevent spikes in your blood sugar. Eating high quality protein (such as chicken, turkey, fish, tuna etc) will help you lose your belly fat as these foods take a lot of energy to digest.
Vitamin rich foods packed with minerals and high nutritional value such as fruits and vegetables will help you lose your belly fat because they are not very calorie dense. This means you can eat a lot of fruits and vegetables and not consume as many calories as you would eating processed food.
This helps you burn belly fat and do it fast because you are essentially eating more food but consuming fewer calories.
Tip #2 - Really push yourself when you workout!
If you do intense workouts as opposed to workouts where you never really push yourself, then you will be on the right track to burn belly fat fast. Pushing yourself hard when you workout gets your metabolism going and it will keep it elevated so you keep burning calories long after you are finished working out.
The trick is to push your self hard for short periods of time. Not for a long, extended workout.
Try the following exercises and read the instructions below. You will feel a huge difference between the intensity of this vs. your old workouts.
12 bodyweight squats
15 dumbbell swings
Do this series of exercises and do as many rounds as you can in 10 minutes. You will feel how intense this workout is if you do this!
Tip 3 - Instead of doing long, slow cardio, try doing intervals
Interval training will help you burn belly fat fast because it will help boost your metabolism for hours after you are done working out. High intensity interval training switches back and forth from high and low intensities, so you are still pushing your self out of your comfort zone for short, quick bursts.
Since you alternate between these intensities in a very meticulous way, you will find yourself working much harder than before. 20 minutes of interval training often feels like 60 minutes of normal, same speed cardio!
