6 Quick Flat Stomach Workouts At Home To Reduce Belly Fat

It can be difficult to lose belly flat. We all agree with this, don’t we? Either we lose the inches very slowly or we do not lose inches at all. Either way, we feel demotivated and start believing the fact that maybe we will never get a flat stomach. Well, that is not true. Belly fat is stubborn. It is the way it is because it acts as a security in times of energy deficits as your body gets energy from the fat stored in your mid section. Not only that, your hormone and metabolism plays an important role as well.

Crunches


But, it is not impossible to get flat stomach. It can be slow and steady but it is definitely possible if you choose the right exercise regime and diet plan.


Let us look at some points that we must remember before we get on with the exercises:


a) Have food high in protein and fiber and try to limit your calories. The protein will help you give a boost to your metabolism and limit your hunger pangs whereas the fiber will help you flush out all toxins out of your system.


b) Stay hydrated and drink as much water as you can. In case you want to add a degree of variation, green tea is good, too.


c) Do not take your ‘sleep’ lightly. Sleep is very important and believe it or not, it enhances your fat-loss process.


d) The amount of fat you have in your mid section is directly proportional to the overall body fat. Hence, if you make efforts to lose overall body fat, you will lose fat in the mid region, to a certain extent. But for this, you will have to understand the amount of body fat that needs to be done away with. You can then make a schedule for your self accordingly.


e) Losing weight is not synonymous to losing fat. You might lose your muscles if you choose the wrong exercise and diet regime. Be informed and aware.


f) Cardio is a must. Do 45 minutes of cardio, 6 days a week.
