How to Lose Belly Fat at Age 40+
What You Need to Know to Lose Belly Fat at Age 40+
And you can’t help but be on the lookout for that magical exercise that will give you flat abs once-and-for-all.
I’m sorry to burst your bubble of hope…
But all the ab crunches in the world won’t make a dent in your belly bulge, as long as you continue with your unhealthy lifestyle.
This isn’t a cutting edge discovery. In fact, by now it’s common knowledge that spot reduction is a myth.
And yet, time after time, I’m asked to reveal the exercise, or exercise machine, that gets rid of stomach fat.
There is no such magical exercise.
The magic is found in altering your diet and exercise routine to promote fat loss from your overall body, including—but not limited to—your midsection.
Here’s how to really get rid of that belly fat:
Flat Belly Tip #1: Cut Out Processed Foods
You know how Disneyland has the FastPass tickets that allow you to cut to the front of the ride lines?
Consider processed foods as a FastPass ticket to belly fat.
I wouldn’t be surprised if future studies show that the over-processing, chemical additives and high fructose corn syrup that are pumped into processed food specifically adds fat around your belly.
If you want to lose pounds then stay away from sugars, sodas, chemically altered fats, processed, packaged, fried and preserved foods.
Flat Belly Tip #2: Eat Fresh, Whole Foods
Once you’ve cut the garbage out of your diet, fill in the void with fresh foods such as:
Lean, high quality meat
Whole grains, in moderation
While these foods may seem boring at first, stick with it long enough and you’ll grow to love the unadulterated flavor of real food.
Eating a diet filled with the foods listed above will give your body all the nutrients it needs to shed pounds and lean out.
Flat Belly Tip #3: A Consistent, Challenging Exercise Program
The absolute best way to fight the battle of the belly bulge is with a consistent, challenging exercise program.
Consistent: You should exercise 3-5 times each week.
Challenging: If you want to see results then keep your body guessing with new exercises and varied intensity.
A good type of exercise routine is to start doing HIIT. This stands for high intensity interval training. This type of training provides EPOC, which is a big fancy term for “afterburner” where you burn calories 12-36 after your workout. This alone can be a game changer for you!
