Belly Fat and Six-pack Abs

Lose The Fat and Uncover Those Abs

You want to lose weight, some of that fat that is covering your belly, your real purpose is to get those six-pack abs or that flat sexy stomach, well if you can’t see your six-pack abs it’s because they are covered with fat. If you lose all the fat, you will see your six-pack abs, they are there always, they may not be as well defined as you would like, but they will be there.

Exercise

girl-absMost people wanting a six-pack have the same problem, exercise those abdominal muscles until you are exhausted day after day and you seem to make no progress at all. Exercise alone may very well give your six-pack more definition, but unless you shed the fat, they will still be hidden, you could have a perfect six-pack and never see them if they are covered with layers of fat.

In order to build muscle, yes, exercise is important especially the correct exercise, but in order to be effective, you have to feed them with the correct nutrients as well. Not all food is suitable for building healthy muscle, however, it works out that the nutritious food you need to build muscle is the same nutritious food you need to lose fat.

Nutrition

Heavily processed foods are the worst things you can consume, almost devoid of any nutrition and full of things like the bad and damaged fats and corn syrup. Start eating more natural food, food with the least processing done as possible, and animal products from animals that were fed as they were designed to be, like cows being fed grass, you will naturally get rid of the fat and feed your muscle at the same time. Humans has survived since mankind first came into this world without processed food, not only survived but flourished.

Exercise and Nutrition

Eating a good nutritionally balanced diet means there is no need for supplements, not even the fat reduction remedies, and if you exercise appropriately you will reduce your body fat and increase your muscle mass and bone density and strengthen your joints. Loss of bone density naturally accompanies weight loss and must be catered for, exercise increases bone density, so any diet plan has to include exercise in order to maintain bone density, some form of resistance training is best for this coupled with full body exercises and the correct amounts of rest. Yes, rest is important too, your body needs it to recover from bouts of activity, that’s the way mankind has survived for hundreds of thousands of years, eating natural foods, exercising, and resting.

To get those six-pack abs or that flat sexy stomach for the women, some targeted abs exercise is required, but for the most part, full body exercises are the most beneficial, they also exercise your entire mid section, not just your abs.

Ab Workouts Do Not Cause Stomach Fat Loss

Too Much Belly Fat

This article is from the highly respected nutrition & fitness trainer Mike Geary. In it he covers some of the myths and misconceptions that stubbornly surround the topic of stomach fat loss and why ab workouts don’t produce the expected results.

Most people with the problem of belly fat assume that spot training the abdominal muscles will bring them the quickest and best results but Mike explains why this is just not the case…

It seems that everyone is always asking me what the best ab workouts are to get a flatter stomach. The common belief that ab workouts will help you to lose belly fat is one of the biggest misconceptions I deal with daily as a fitness professional. Almost everyone has varying degrees of excess body fat in the abdominal region, and the best way to burn off that extra stomach fat continues to elude most.

The problem is that most people are searching for the wrong exercises and workout types to lose stubborn belly fat. Most people are searching for some miraculous combination of abs exercises combined into the best ab workout ever invented that will burn off their belly fat faster than you can read this article.

Visit the health and fitness expert if you want to get results fast.

Unfortunately, ab-specific workouts do NOT burn fat off of your belly. They only tone and strengthen the underlying abdominal muscles. What you really need to focus on is a full body strategic workout that will cause a much greater metabolic rate increase and fat-burning hormonal response from your training program as a whole.

In addition, simply doing cardiovascular workouts will not necessarily create the greatest metabolic response or hormonal response either. What you really need is a much more rounded training program that focuses on training the entire body with resistance training and multi-joint exercises in a higher intensity fashion.

This type of high intensity full body training combined with a healthy balanced diet full of nutrient density on a regular basis, is the real key secret to losing the extra stomach fat that covers up the abs. This is a much better plan of attack than just trying to do ab workouts and hoping that just doing a bunch of ab exercises like crunches and leg raises are going to make you lose your belly fat.

The amazing thing is that the majority of the population still believes that in order to get rid of belly fat, you need to do ab workouts every day using hundreds of reps. I see people giving this type of erroneous advice every day on all of the fitness forums. Please do not waste your time with this type of advice!

Now before you say “how can an abs expert not recommend abdominal exercises”, realize that I do strongly believe that a certain amount of ab-specific exercises mixed into your routines are beneficial. Ab exercises will help you strengthen and tone the abdominal muscles and are useful for other purposes such as a healthy back and posture when done correctly. But the fact remains that ab exercises are not necessary for fat loss.

A much smarter full body resistance training routine and a clean healthy balanced diet are the most important factors. Many of the full body exercises also indirectly work the abdominals and core due to the stabilization required in some of the more difficult variations.

Do We Need Food Supplements?

Nutrition and Supplements

When you notice the amount and variety of food supplements that we are subjected to by all the advertising, it is easy to fall for all the hype and get caught up in the messages they are overwhelming us with. But, do we need supplements?

Supplements aren’t alone, diets, surgery, pills and supplements, exercise, which? They are all being targeted at our health conscience, they are making us feel guilty if we do not follow their advice, or more importantly, buy there products.

Are they necessary? That is the real question we have to ask ourselves.

Food supplements haven’t been with us for very long, 50 years ago you might have found things like wheat germ, molasses, perhaps cider vinegar, but not much else. Think of the proliferation of food supplements there are nowadays, and think of how long mankind has survived without them.

Something else happened roughly 50 years ago that may well have something to do with the prevalence of food supplements, a general increase in processed foods which has continued to increase every year since, it is a multi-billion dollar industry today.

The increase in food supplements follows the increase in processed foods with both increasing at an exponential rate with no signs of changing any time soon.

To answer the question posed in the title of this article, “Do We Need Supplements?” The answer is not as straight forward as you might think.

If your diet consists mainly of processed foods then the answer is a resounding yes! The processing leaves little or no nutritional value in the food being processed, look at all the additives listed on the packaging, these food supplements are being added to the processed food in an effort to put back the nutritional value that was lost in the processing, I say effort because not every item lost is even being attempted to be replaced, only the ones they can gain some advertising benefit from.

On the other hand, if your diet consists mainly of natural foods that have undergone little processing, then the answer is no! The nutritional value of food that is unprocessed is so much higher than processed food that we can live very healthy lives without having to resort to any supplements at all. The advent of processed food is not just making the nation obese, it is killing us, slowly but surely, as well. We are becoming a disease ridden nation because the natural vitamins and minerals are being destroyed in the processing of the food.

The processing is also altering the very structure of the fats that we consume on a daily basis, this is linked to high cholesterol. The fact that we need cholesterol is often overlooked, mainly because of the link between high cholesterol and heart disease.

As for food supplents, you’ll have to decide for yourself, only you know your eating choices, which, by the way, are choices, you can change them. For real nutritional advice click here

Nutrition and Exercise

Health and fitness can, essentially, be broken down into two different subjects, nutrition and exercise. Other than illnesses, accidents and genetic faults, these are the two greatest influences on our health and fitness and they can even help alleviate the effects of the other three.

If we sustain our bodies with the correct healthy nutritional food intake, then the cells in our bodies that are being replaced each day, are replaced with healthy cells. If we deprive our cells of healthy nutrients, the foundation of our entire bodies will suffer, not just our waistlines. Inferior cells will be produced and this will affect every part of us, even our immune system.

Much the same can be said of exercise, if we deprive our bodies of good balanced exercise then

our whole bodies suffer, muscle loss and bone density loss will result and more of the nutrition, good or bad, will be laid down as fat reserves instead of directly building cells, muscle, and strengthening bones and joints.

Good healthy nutrition on it’s own is not enough to sustain a healthy body, and neither is exercise on it’s own enough, we need both in combination to have any success at all in health and fitness.

This blog is therefore about both nutrition and exercise, it is intended to highlight the best of both and also to dispel some of the myths that have become prevalent within the health and fitness industry, especially the food and drugs industry. There is so much hype surrounding this industry that is completely misleading and endangering our health.

The food and drugs industry is there to make money, and nothing else. In spite of trying to give the opposite impression, that they have our wellbeing as their top priority, they don’t, it comes down to money, period. Neither the food nor the drugs industry have our interests at heart, it is so bad that if you look closely enough you could almost imagine a huge conspiracy taking place between them both.

Processing food destroys the nutrition contained in the original food, and the additives do little to replace what is lost. If we are getting the correct healthy nutrition in our daily diet then food supplements are totally unnecessary and some of them are downright bad for us.

For hundreds of thousands of years mankind has not only survived but flourished without the so-called help of the food and drugs industry. Bear that in mind when you see all the advertising we are subjected to on a daily basis.
