Belly fat is the most “stubborn” and hardest to lose. The well-known personal trainer from America, James Stering, named 4 guaranteed ways to achieve the effect of a flat stomach.
- First of all, for the sake of getting rid of belly fat, Stering recommends to reject treated and unrefined carbohydrates, such as white bread and pasta, which are rapidly absorbed by the body and cause a jump in the level of insulin. Unprocessed carbohydrates, such as whole grains, vegetables, fruits and beans, increase the feeling of fullness and contribute to the production of blood sugar at a much slower pace. If you cannot live without your favorite carbohydrates, it is best to use them immediately after training – this is the perfect time to “burn” extra calories.
- Stering recommends training as many muscle groups as possible; this leads to burning the biggest number of calories. Therefore, the main place in your sport training should be taken by complex exercises, rather than by exercises for separate muscles: biceps or shoulders.
- The most effective are short periods of high-intensity workouts. For example, 10-15 minutes of loads on a stationary bike at a pace that makes you sweat. They are the best way to get rid of belly fat. In addition, short-interval workouts are suitable for the people who believe that they have no time for sports.
- The last advice that James Stering gives is keeping a food diary for at least 30 days. It is necessary to record all the food that you have eaten. It is also necessary to record the meal time and your sensations two hours later in order to understand how the energy levels increase and whether the feeling of hunger remains.
