It is probably the main reason why you’re reading this:  You want to get rid of your belly fat.  If you’re anything like me, you feel like your entire body looks pretty good–except for that nice ab-hiding layer of fat surrounding your midsection.  

I HATE IT!  

First, here’s the bad news.  There’s no such thing as “spot reduction” when it comes to weight loss.  As you start to bur fat and lose weight, it’s going to happen all over your entire body, not just at your midsection.  And to add even more depressing fuel to the fire, your belly fat will most likely be the LAST to go!  

I HATE IT EVEN MORE!

Now here’s some good news.  Most likely, you won’t have to go to the gym and jump on those painful ab machines, do a massive number of sit ups and crunches, or suspend yourself by your ankles to do anti-gravity crunches.  You probably won’t have to spend hours developing your abs because, well, your abs are already there buried under that pesky layer of fat!

So, now what?  Doing a million crunches won’t directly burn the belly fat and no exercise will spot reduce.  You can do what it truly takes to burn belly fat, which is burning more calories than you consume.

There are a few ways you can start to melt off that subcutaneous layer of adipose tissue.  

CARDIO:  Run, run, run even though it’s no fun, fun, fun!  Doing cardio is a good way to burn extra calories, whether it’s running or working the elliptical or dancing the cha cha.  

HIIT:  My favorite!  Quick short bursts of cardio-inducing energy, followed by a short recovery period will burn more fat in the long run.  Actually it will burn 9 times more subcutaneous fat than steady paced cardio!  

However you prefer to get your cardio in, the key to being successful is two-fold:

1.  BE CONSISTENT!  If you do your cardio only once or twice a week, you will most likely not but the fat fast.  Or slow.  Work out four to five to six days in a row.  Take a rest.  Repeat the following week.  And so on.  Get in the habit of working out consistently, the results will come faster, and it will motivate you to stick with the program.

2.  EAT LESS!  This is THE most important factor when it comes to burning off the fat.  If you’re working out consistently but eating enough to feed your entire neighborhood, you will not only NOT lose weight, but you will most likely GAIN weight.  This is the #1 rule with the Half Meal Habit.  By the way, if you’re eating less and burning more calories than you’re taking in without working out, believe it or not, you will STILL see results!  That is how important it is to eat less.

Another Small Half Meal That Was Plenty For Me!

How to Burn Belly Fat for Men

how to burn belly fat for men, how to burn belly fat for women, how to burn belly fat fast for women, how to burn belly fat fast for menAlthough there are differences with the male and female physiology, when it comes to burning belly fat, the solution is still the same, but there’s one more tip that will help speed the process.   Okay, there’s two.  

Drink More Water!

Eat less, crank up your heart rate, and last but not least, drink lots of water.  I always try to think that as I drink water, I’m flooding my belly fat and washing it out of my body.  Yeah, yeah, I know that’s completely false, but if motivates me to drink more.

How to Burn Belly Fat Fast for Men

The second tip is WEIGHTS!!!  This goes for MEN and WOMEN.  Add weight resistance to your workouts so you can start to layer on the lean muscle.  Why?  Because lean muscle will burn calories more than that gross fat layer.  And as you now know, when you burn calories, you start burning fat!  And that’s what you want.

Finally, don’t get frustrated if you don’t see results right away.  This takes time!!!  If you’re adding muscle under your fat, you may even feel like you’re getting fatter, but you’re not.   The bigger muscles will push out the layer of fat, causing it to be more prominent.  For now.  That will all change as long as you follow the above guidelines and STICK TO IT!

 push ups, 100 push ups, push ups everyday, push ups benefits, benefits of push ups, types of push ups, wall push ups, can you do push ups everyday

Can you do push ups?  If not, don’t worry.  You’re not alone.  Look at that guy over there with the tiny arms.  I’m sure you’re not that bad off! Still, I’ve been getting emails that many of you are struggling to do the lowly ol’ push up.  There’s no reason why you can’t do push ups no matter what shape you’re in.  I repeat: Everyone can do push ups no matter what shape you’re in!

100 Push Ups A Day?

You don’t have to be one of these maniacs who can do 100 push ups in a single rotation.  You just need to add them to your HIIT plan and do as many as you can in :30 to :50 seconds.  I frequently will do 20 reps, rest, then do another 10 to 15 in that :50 second set, so don’t think you need to continually “push up” the whole time!

(The Real Psychology of Eating:  Why Can’t I Lose Weight?  It’s Not Your Fault!)

By the way, there is a push up move that anyone can do, and can squeeze out 100 reps…I’ll show you that one later.

Benefits of push ups

It’s funny.  I hear from people all over the world and they all have different workout moves they wish had a “dislike” button!  Some hate pull ups, others push ups, MANY really, really HATE doing ANY kind of ab work.  With push ups, the main reason why people don’t like them is the fact that they struggle to even do one repetition.  This is bad, but it’s not the end of the world.  You want to perform this exercise because it is such a beneficial move.

Push ups build chest muscles.

Duh, right?  But, depending on your arm positioning, the angle of your body, the width of your hands, you can hit every part of your chest.

They build other muscles, too.

Mainly your triceps (back of your arms) will get a good pump by doing pushups, but your biceps get a workout, too, along with your forearms.

Your core gets a work out!

Doing a push up properly means holding your body in a straight line, like a board.  You need to tighten your abs, your butt muscles, even our lower back when performing this move.  This means you are solidly working your core!  You’re not going to get that doing bench presses.

Half Meal Habit Amazing Diet

It’s time to help as many people as possible, so I’ve cut the HMH from $49, to $9, all the way down to $3.99! Now, EVERYONE can afford the HMH! Let’s GO! (limited time only)

So as you can see, these push ups benefits demonstrate that it’s a very good move to add to your workout plan.  Are there benefits to doing 100 push ups a day?  Of course there are!  You will build up some solid chest and core muscles, along with adding some arm bulk.  But this leads to the next question…

Can you do push ups everyday?

Yes.  Should you?  Probably not.  There’s some evidence that if you don’t let your muscles recover, you will lose some of the gains you might have made.  Honestly, here at the Half Meal Habit, it’s not about “body building” but about “body shrinking” so I wouldn’t worry about losing gains by doing push ups everyday.  The most important thing you can do is simply work out, regardless of doing push ups every day, every other day, etc.  Just move more.  If you end up doing too many chest moves and you’re super sore, just skip the chest move and add a lat move, like doing pull ups under your table.

Types of push ups

Anything from standing push ups to decline push ups, anything is game.  Standing and doing wall push ups is where beginners start while decline push ups, with your feet on a chair or a table, is where you get into advanced moves.  Check out this video where I explain how to do push ups for the beginners to the advanced.

Oh, and by the way, it’s all about intensity.  You can do 100 pushups easily if you are doing wall push ups!  I know I can do that!  I hope this helps you add the awesome push ups move to your current work out plan!

Although I lost weight following the Half Meal Habit, SOMEONE sure could use some push ups workouts, lol!

If I can do it, so can you!

Looking for the ultimate workout in the least amount of time?  Me too!  And I found it!  It’s called…

high intensity interval training.

It’s intense and taxing so it’s not for everybody–or is it?

Below is a cool little picture breakdown of why high intensity interval training workouts are the best for losing weight, building lean muscle, and making your heart healthy in the shortest amount of time.  Not as cool as the picture of the skinny piggie, but still.  For now, just know that when they say it isn’t for everybody, they aren’t taking into consideration a little act called “modification!”

Even if you modify your workouts, as long as you’re doing intervals you will have a great impact on your weight loss.  This is how to burn off belly fat fast and effectively.

high intensity interval training exercises

There’s no reason why you can’t perform high intensity interval training exercises and modify them so you can do them.  If you can’t do jump tucks, do a squat jump (and jump about a millimeter in the air) then forcefully raise your left knee then your right knee.  You will get almost the same effect without the high intensity battering of your body.  Making it more intense is how to burn belly fat.

I’ve put together a few high intensity interval training routines for you to consider.  After reading through the following info, be sure to watch my basic workouts to get an idea of how easy this workout program can be!  It’s a big part of the Half Meal Habit, so be sure you learn all about it!

feel rich, health is the new wealthFitness for Free: Save a Buck & Work with What You’ve Got

by Max-El Saffold —

For those of us concerned with our health and fitness, fitting it into our budgets can be rough.

Along with our bills, car notes and rent payments, there’s also an endless stream of toys, trinkets, gizmos and gadgets on a mission to stick us for our paper, making it practically impossible to fit a gym membership into our financial plans. With such devious forces at work against our physical and fiscal fitness, many of us feel forced to put our aspirations of getting right on hold until we think we can “afford it.”

Well, we’ve got a message for you: That’s totally unnecessary. You can start getting right immediately and it won’t cost you a dime.

With parks and playgrounds all over just about every municipality in the country, a gym membership is truly a fitness luxury, not a necessity. You don’t need fancy equipment, air conditioning or walls to get yourself together. You can get a great full-body workout with a park bench, a jungle gym or bar to hang from, a lot of open space and your own bodyweight.

That’s right, kids, the word for today is calisthenics — or “bodyweight exercises” – and we’re gonna show you a few simple moves you can start doing today:

JUMP SQUATS
What you need: Enough space to jump up and down in.
Muscles/Areas worked: Quadriceps/Hamstrings (Front/Rear Thighs), Calves.

How to do it: Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, knees slightly bent. Squat down until thighs are about parallel with ground then jump straight into the air as high as you can. Land on soft knees (bend knees to absorb impact) and repeat.

PULL-UPS
What you need: A bar to hang from. Jungle gyms and tree limbs are perfect.
Muscles/Areas worked: Latissimus dorsi (back), biceps (front of arms).

How to do it: Hang from bar/limb with hands palms-out and slightly wider then shoulder-width apart. Pull yourself up until your chin is at the same level as or higher than your hands. Slowly lower yourself back to the starting position, then repeat.

*Pointer: Change your hand position to palms-in (facing you) and vary how far apart they are to hit different areas of the back. If this move is too difficult to perform alone, have a partner assist you by holding your feet.

KNEE RAISES
What you need: The same bar/limb you did the pull-ups on.
Muscles/Areas worked: Abdominals (stomach)

How to do it: Hang from bar/limb and bring your knees straight up to your chest. Slowly lower them to starting position, then repeat.

*Pointer: Vary this exercise and isolate your obliques (side abs) by raising knees up to the sides. Do the same number of reps on each side.

PUSH-UPS
What you need: The ground and a bench.
Muscles/Areas worked: Pecs (chest), deltoids (shoulders), biceps/triceps (arms)

How to do it: Everyone knows how to do a push-up, but it is important to make sure that you get the full range of motion by lowering yourself until your elbows are at a 90-degree angle before pushing back up. Vary the width of your hands to hit different areas of the overall chest. You may also vary the exercise by placing either your feet (incline) or your hands (decline) on a bench to focus on the upper or lower chest, respectively.

————————–

Do these very basic exercises regularly and you’ll be well on your way to having the body you always wanted. As time passes, you’ll begin varying these moves and adding others to your repertoire. By exercising outside you’ll not only be saving money, you’ll also be adding a fresh-air cardiovascular aspect to your workout that you just can’t get while strength training at a gym.

It’s a win-win.

how to burn belly fat fast, how to burn belly fat in a week, how to burn off belly fat fast, how to burn belly fat quickly, how to burn belly fat quick, how to burn belly fat in 2 weeksBelly flab.  Ew, right?  We all want to burn it off and we want to get rid of it as fast as possible.  We find diet recommendations and exercise programs that claim if you follow their advice, you will learn how to burn belly fat fast.  There are inherent problems with their claims that point directly to the reality that they are being dishonest with you.

Can you really learn how to burn belly fat in 2 weeks?

If you read or hear the ads, I can understand why one would get drawn into the hype.  I mean, if I could learn how to burn belly fat in a week, I could go back to living my life how I do now!  Seriously, we all want a quick fix–and advertisers know this–so there’s no surprise there are a kazillion “remedies” on the market.  Here are a couple of reasons why these remedies that seem like miracles are more like maladies that will mess with you or even harm you.

You can throw your body out of whack

Many of these spot reducing diets have you eating like you’ve never eaten before.  To some that is a good thing.  To others, it messes up their gutty works!  Influxing massive amounts of fruit, protein, lettuce only, and so on, my plug you up or cause you to even go anemic.  You need to be very careful as to what you ingest based on the recommendation of some of these crazies.

how to burn belly fat fast, how to burn belly fat in a week, how to burn off belly fat fast, how to burn belly fat quickly, how to burn belly fat quick, how to burn belly fat in 2 weeksYo-Yo Fat

Not Yo Yo Ma!  Maybe you go on the diet and the pounds start to come off–and fast!  You lose 20 pounds in two weeks.  Hooray!  That is, until you go right back to your old eating habits.  Even if you introduce 25% of your previous menu items back into your diet, you will most likely see a 50% regain of weight!  That ain’t good!  Back on the diet you go, only to fail a few weeks down the road.  Up, down, up, down.  It’s not good for your body, your heart, or your psyche.

You can’t spot burn the fat on your body

Bummer, huh?  It seems we can spot “add” fat to our bodies, doesn’t it?  When you start to lose the fat on your frame, you lose it all over, not just in your problem areas.  So, if you come across any device or diet that says it will melt the pounds from your thighs or belly, understand that they are not being truthful!

The good news is, as you lose weight you are doing so over your whole body including your problem areas.  So the question shouldn’t be about how to burn off belly fat fast but more about how to burn off fat in general.

How to burn belly fat quick and permanently

It’s called eating less.  All you need to do is consume less calories than you burn off on a daily, or more weekly basis.  Sure, that’s easy to say.  The downside is that no one actually gives you a good way to eat less without starving or restricting yourselves to the point of passing out or getting bored with the menu.

There is a way to eat less while eating all of your favorite foods.  I’ve been following the Half Meal Habit and it shows you how to  eat half meals (that you don’t have to make) and not ever feel hungry, starving, or craving your favorite foods.  Mainly because you can eat whatever you want.  You just eat less of it.  Here are my results.
