Losing Stomach Fats

Thursday, June 14, 2007

p>Anyone that is serious about losing stomach fat must know what works and what doesn’t. Below are a couple of tried and true weight loss facts. These are few on what I read on a Women's Health blog.

Fact #1: Exercising in the morning on an empty stomach is the best time to exercise in order to burn fat. For example, if you jog before breakfast, your body will be burning stored fat (the carbohydrates) you left there during the night. A study conducted in Sweden a few years ago concluded that exercise in the morning before eating burns nearly three and a half times more fat than exercising in the evening! Obviously, exercising at any time during the day is better than not exercising at all.

Fact #2: Fat-loss programs should include aerobic and weight training activity. People who combine both weight training and aerobic exercise achieve faster results. The reason is quite simple. Aerobic activity increases the heart rate resulting in an expenditure of calories and weight training increases our metabolic rate, enabling our bodies can burn calories all the time.

If losing stomach fat is your primary goal, develop an obtainable plan on how you would like to get started on your fat loss program. Be sure that your plan includes a healthy eating plan, weight training and aerobic activity. You’re not going to get rid of stomach fat in just a few days, so keep yourself motivated and you’ll find that it will get easier over time. Thousands of people have realized their fitness goals and you can too!
