How To Lose Belly Fat In A Week

8/19 9:34:34

You ever have one of those moments when you look in the mirror and see how your belly has gotten over the years.  Well, I had one of those moments and I knew I needed to do something about it. My goal was to lose belly fat in a week and I invited some friends of mine to join me.  We form a burn belly fat club and we were there to motivate each other to reach our fat burning and weight loss goals.  Initially, we started off to see how much belly fat we could lose in one week.

After the first week, most of us lost a couple of inches off our belly by modifying our diets and adding some exercises every other day. It's amazing how good you feel about yourself when you set a goal and you reach your goal. We started off just trying to lose belly fat in a week, but we found that if we did the same things over several weeks, we could really see substantially weight loss. Most people who fail to lose belly fat fail to have some of the key steps required to lose belly fat.

Here are ten reasons we found why most people fail to lose belly fat.

1) Not having a plan.

Trying to burn belly fat without a social support to back you up will lead to a failed burn fat/weight loss plan. First, have your doctor, RN, a personal trainer, your workout partner, your significant other, your roommates, and your friends all behind your weight loss or burn fat plan. Research shows that you'll benefit most from a health professional (i.e. a trainer) and a workout partner that is also successful. By having yourself checkout by a doctor and getting him/her behind you is your first step to success.

2) Not having a well written or structured plan

I served in the military for 30 years, and one of the things I learned in the military was that you must have a well thought out plan to accomplish any mission.  We also would say no plan survives initial contact. So be prepared to make modifications to your plan.

3) No variety.

After several weeks or dieting and working out, you need to mix things up a little.  Have a diet or weight loss plan that changes your routine after several weeks.

4) Failing to understand that what goes into your body plays a key role.

Exercising is a good way to lose weight and lose fat, but you also have to watch what you eat and when you eat.

5) Not knowing your limits.

In order for any fast weight loss plan or easy weight loss goal to be accomplished, you have to know your limits.  You must set weight loss goals for yourself and know your milestones.  You should set milestones that you want to achieve to get to your ideal weight.  Without weight loss goals and an end state, you are just setting yourself up for failure.


6)  Focus on quality over quantity. The "volume approach to fat loss" from the 1980's (characterized by lots of cardio and lots of carbs) didn't work. Stick to high quality nutrition, and high-quality training.

7)  Not eating right

Eat five or six meals a day. This spreads meals over the course of a day rather than just eating one or two large meals a day which is not good on the body.

8) Taking in too much sugar

Limit your consumption of sugar or processed foods. This includes soft drinks, frozen dinners, even "sports drinks" - Gatorade, vitamin water, all those types of drinks. You should also limit your intake of processed foods and deli meats.

9)  Failing to eat fruits and vegetables

Eat more fruits and vegetables. This provides you lots of vitamins and minerals, they're going to boost your health; they are not very calorie-dense, so you're going to be able to eat a large volume of food without getting in many calories.

10) And finally, not drinking enough water

Drink more water and cut out calorie-containing beverages. That sort of goes along with Pillar 2, with the sugar, but here we're looking at beer, soda, those $5.00 lattes from places like Starbuck's or your favorite coffee place.
