The first and foremost thing to clarify is that there is no such thing as losing fat on just your belly and not anywhere else on your body.  When your body loses fat, it loses it at the same percentage across your whole body (your face, neck, shoulders, arms, hands, chest, back, belly, hips, thighs, buttocks, calves, feet, …).  The key thing to note is the SAME percentage of that area on your body.  For example, to keep it simple let’s assume you have 10 pounds of belly fat and just 3 pounds of fat on your lower back, but 0 pounds of fat everywhere else on your body (unrealistic but it will be easier to understand). Now say in 2 weeks you burned off 14,000 extra calories which are equivalent to 4 pounds of fat.  What your body will do is take the same percentage of fat from wherever the fat is on your body, wherein our example there is the 10 pounds of fat on your belly and 3 pounds of fat on your lower back.

Although your body is not working out mathematical equations it is working in a systematic manner: Percentage of body fat removed everywhere in your body = pounds of fat loss / total pounds of fat I have. So we have 4 pounds/13 pounds = 30% of fat to remove from the body. Belly Fat before fat loss is 10 pounds, after the fat loss 30% is removed and we get 7 pounds of fat left. Lower back fat before fat loss is 3 pounds, after the fat loss 30% is removed and we get 2 pounds of fat left on the lower back. So although it was 30% of fat removal off your whole body, there were more pounds of fat removed from your belly because 30% from there is more than 30% on your lower back.

Hence, the majority of your fat loss on your body will occur in the area(s) where it is most concentrated.  If the fat is mainly concentrated in your belly then that is where the main reduction of fat will occur. So now that we understand there is no way to lose fat in just your belly and not anywhere else, then the question should not be “diets that work to reduce belly fat”, but instead should be “diets that work to reduce fat”.

Research after research has shown a low-carb diet has been a very effective way to lose fat. So what is a low-carb diet? Simple, calories coming from carbohydrates is less than 20% of your total calories.  The remaining 80% of the calories should come from fat and protein, where there should be more calories from fat than protein.  You also want to ensure these are good fats and not the bad ones.  So keep the saturated and trans fat low. Also, the low-carb diet should have very little to no processed foods, you want pure and clean foods.

Have you ever wondered how the body knows to target belly fat when you’re on a weight loss program? Did you know you can control it? That’s right, it’s up to you to do the right exercise if you what to watch your belly fat disappear in 30 days.

The body is smarter than you

It knows how to lose belly fat fast before moving on to other parts of the body. But did you know you can inhibit this if you do the wrong exercise?  You can do 1000 crunches every day and still not know how to lose lower belly fat! It’s a fact! Your body is the one that decides where the fat goes and which part to burn off first. Most of it depends on your genetics, but what you eat also decides where the fat goes.  Too much processed food will definitely put fat on your belly. Too much sugar, refined foods, and fast foods also put it there.

Fat is a survival tactic your body uses when food is scarce

Since your body is the one that decides which fat is burnt off first, it’s best to help it along by doing exercises that help the body know how to lose weight quickly. Using sit-ups or crunches will help a little, but it won’t help much, contrary to everyone’s beliefs. You have to use different muscle groups along with the stomach muscles. Plus, you have to get your heart rate up, so your body will burn the fat.

It doesn’t happen any other way

Doing cardio exercises such as bike riding, jogging, fast walking, and high-intensity interval training exercises (think Sean T.’s Insanity Workout) that bring the heart rate up is better for losing stomach fat.  Since it’s your body that decides which fat to burn first, you can’t actually target a muscle group unless you use the muscles in the area where you want to lose weight or build muscle mass.What’s the right way on how to lose belly fat? Hint* (It’s doing intensive Cardio)For example, if you want that six-pack abs in less than 8 weeks you have to do cardio every day, plus, work on the muscles in your back, arms, and legs, as well as your stomach muscles. Your entire body is the key to becoming that fat burning machine.

How to get a flat stomach or rather how to lose belly fat naturallyIt’s design is to burn fat since that is what your body needs for fuel or energy. Glucose is made from fat which is converted from the holding cells which store fat.

Here’s how the body works:
  • You eat low carb diet.
  • The body converts the food (carbohydrates) to energy or glucose body burns the energy and stores what it can’t use right away in fat cells.
  • When it runs out of energy it uses the stored fat for energy after it converts it to glucose.
  • If you eat again before your body has converted the fat in the stored cells, you gain weight.
  • You have to let your body use the stored fat for energy before you eat again.

Of course, a better way is to not eat so much. That way your body is always converting fat to burn as energy.  That in turn, increases your metabolism which, of course, tells your body how to lose love handles.  So, can you see how the body is a fat burning machine, which you have to take care of so it will burn fat where you want it to or the fat will attract more fat and you will just keep on gaining weight.
