Belly 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.
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.
Adding their suggestion of 60 minutes of exercise per week (not per day!) and their hydration plan is all you need to know how to burn belly fat quickly and to keep it off permanently.
