Fat loss isn’t rocket science. I know we love to make our problems seem much bigger than they really are, but when you really look at them they’re typically easy to solve. And that’s often the case with fat loss.
To prove it to you here are five super simple fat loss tips you can easily follow:
1) Stop guzzling liquid sugar. Yes, I mean soft drinks and juices and bottles of iced tea loaded with high fructose corn syrup. For the most part, a 12 oz can of cola is 150 calories of pure sugar. Have a couple of those a day…
2) I’ve written it a gazillion times and I will continue to – eat breakfast! If you want to make fat loss easy then make sure you start your metabolism off on the right foot.
3) Eat more fruit. Aim for at least 5 servings a day.
4) Eat more veggies. Again, aim for at least 5 servings a day.
5) Stop eating so many processed foods. If it comes in a box from your grocery store it’s most likely processed. The fresher the foods the better.

What do you want to know about exercise lose belly fat? Regular exercise should consist of a combination of cardio and strength training. Be sure to talk to your doctor to find out if it is ok to begin an exercise routine, especially if you have an underlying medical condition such as heart disease or high blood pressure. Daily exercise will eventually help to lower your blood pressure but initially may raise it to a level your doctor may not be comfortable with, so have that conversation and do what your doctor says is ok to do.
Cardio exercises consist of walking or running on a treadmill, using a stair stepper, elliptical machine or stationary bike and getting your heart rate up to a maximum level and sustaining that rate for 15 to 20 minutes. Cardio exercises will strengthen your heart and lungs and increase stamina.
The other type of exercise lose belly fat is strength training. Strength training consists of using exercise machines and free weights either at home or in a gym. The best way to tell if you are doing the exercises correctly is to have someone watch you while you do a set to make sure your form is correct. Incorrect form can cause injuries and nobody wants to be in pain.
When you know that your form is correct, choose a weight that is comfortable and do your sets slow and controlled. Never bounce or fling the weight up and down, slow and controlled is the way to go if you want maximum results.
Also there is a new theory that states if you work your muscles to fatigue with a heavier weight and do only one set you will get even faster results. Working your muscles to fatigue means you have used a weight heavy enough that you could not do one more rep no matter what.
I know you have probably tried every diet out there and keep getting frustrated. You lose a little here and there but it never stays off. Those diets are just not sustainable. You gain everything you lost back again and may even tack on a few more pounds to boot. You need to stop jumping on every new fad diet that comes down the pike, they will never work. What does work, however is managing your diet, paying attention to what it is you are putting in your mouth and getting regular exercise. Make it a routine.
