The reason for stomach fat?
With all of us, we want to know why it seems inevitable to gain fat within our stomach region. It seems that as you grow older your stomach region just seems to get wider and more protruding at the front. Does it really have to be this way? Is there no way to avoid gaining all that fat in your stomach? There is, it’s called eating right and exercising. As obvious as that sounds, it really wants is needed to avoid gaining all those extra pounds around your waist. We need to realize that most of the time the person to blame regarding the weight gain is the person in the mirror. Once we have acknowledged that, we can then begin the process of eliminating the fat.
As we grow older our bodies slow down and our metabolic rate reduces. Due to this reduction in our metabolic rate, we do not burn as many calories and by default, we start to retain fat. In younger days, you perhaps were more active, moved around a lot more and just had a more active lifestyle in general. Since age and slowing down your activity seems to go hand in and hand, it leads to weight gain and that unsightly bulging belly. This can be countered though if you had continued to stay somewhat active and had exercise as part of your weekly routine.
Another critical point to make is that sometimes we forget that we are not exactly twenty years old anymore. You can no longer eat two cheeseburgers, a milkshake, and large fries on a regular basis and not expect to see weight gain. When your metabolic rate was at its peak in your twenties, you could get away with such bad eating habits, but now in your forties or fifties, all that will do is make you fat and lead to a variety of health-related issues. It’s time to take control of your life and change your diet and raise the activity level by doing some exercises. Something as little as walking a few minutes a day can boost your metabolism and help with burning your calories. No more whining about your stomach, it’s time to get out there and do something about it.
Why is it so hard to lose stomach fat?
It’s been the same way for decades; we all want to know why it is so difficult to lose stomach fat. You’ve probably tried a variety of diets, exercises, and even starvation and none of the options have worked. It’s at this stage that you begin to think that there is no hope and that you’ll be destined to have that unsightly stomach fat. It’s true that it is very difficult to lose stomach fat, but that’s only when you go about it the wrong way. The starvation diets, the wrong types of exercises and the fad diets usually don’t work. You need a set system that actually takes you through the process of doing the correct exercises, the right diet, and applying a routine that works.
Every time you turn on your television you’ll probably see infomercials for all types of products that promise to give you the rock hard abs you’ve dreamed of. It’s possible that many of these programs do work, but there is only one thing missing from those products, and that’s you. A machine, a step by step exercise routine that was outlined to you, only works if you put in the effort. That’s really the main reason why so many of us fail with our attempts to lose the stomach fat that has built up over the years.
If we take the time to actually look inward, and realize that we need to stay focused and determined on our achieving our goal, then voila, we will achieve it. Starting a routine and then stopping after a couple weeks and proclaiming it as a waste of your time, is not the way to lose stomach fat. You need to endure the pain, endure the misery that will sometimes occur while undergoing an intense workout. There will be times when you feel like quitting, and it’s at that very moment that you need to push on through.
How to get sexy abs
Have you pictured yourself having hot sexy abs? We all have at some point, but the aspect of going about getting sexy abs seemed daunting. Perhaps you’ve tried doing all the sit-ups and crunches and haven’t seen the results or you may have bought some exercise equipment, tried it for awhile, and it didn’t give you the rock hard abs they talked about in the commercial. Whatever your case may be, it’s not impossible to get the sexy abs you are looking for. It really takes dedication, time, and commitment to achieve the sexy abs you’ve been dreaming of. If you can stay committed to the exercise regimen, ensuring that the regimen is set up to burn stomach fat, and tone your abdominal muscles then you can be on your way to sexy abs.
When you see the commercials on television, all of the people involved usually have six packs and are in the best shape of their life. In reality, they probably have been working out for years to achieve those sexy abs, so if you’ve tried it for a few weeks and you’re not exactly looking like the person in the commercial do not be too despondent. There is hope, they didn’t achieve those results overnight, so there is no way you would either. If you take the time to keep with your routine, eat right and continue to exercise and stay positive eventually you’ll start to transform and have sexy abs as well.
When you talk to anyone who has the sexy abs that we all die for, you’ll find the same answer given about their workout routine. The majority if not all of them will say they workout for hours a day to maintain their physique. It’s not easy to get the sexy abs without putting in the time and effort, but if you can spare 30 minutes to an hour a day you will start to see results. Perhaps it won’t be exactly like those pictured in the infomercial, but it will at least be very toned and flat, and that’s still sexy.
