Sick of what looks back at you every time you stand in front of the bedroom mirror? Tired of sucking in your stomach at the beach every summer? In this article we will be looking into shedding body fat fast and sculpting the body you have always wanted.
By looking into shedding body fat fast you are not just looking into losing weight – you are making an effort to reduce various risks to your health. According to more and more research, obesity increases the risk for a number of not just debilitating but sometimes terminal diseases. Just look at the possible health problems related to obesity below….
- Very high risk of heart problems and an increased risk of stroke
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Various forms of cancer
- Possible Pregnancy problems
- Gallbladder disease
It’s a little worrying really isn’t it? That’s without adding the lack of self esteem and drop in self confidence that weight gain can cause!
Food is The First Port of Call
If you are looking at shedding body fat fast then food should be your first port of call. Now don’t panic – just because you are eating healthy doesn’t mean you are giving up on taste. There are many different health food options which are a ‘nice eat’ and good for your stomach line.
If you are a little bit of a snack addict then why don’t you try introducing bananas into your daily diet. Use these bananas to replace the usual snack items – they are rich in potassium which helps get rid of excess sodium. This sodium can cause your stomach to appear as if it is really swollen ( making you look a little fatter I’m afraid to say! ).
More and more people are turning to yogurt when shedding body fat fast. I must admit I have seen a big rise in the popularity of yogurt over the last few years – mainly down to TV commercials I think! Yogurt cleans up the digestive system and also levels out your insulin levels.
liquids seem to play a large part in the downfall of most diets but they really shouldn’t. I always look at soda as a huge stumbling block when it comes to a successful diet. Replace all those nasty fizzy drinks with a simple cup of green tea. Now I know the taste is not for everyone at first but you do get used to it. Green tea will help kick start your metabolism and will help you burn body fat!
We seem to constantly be covering whole grains and this is for a very good reason – whole grains are full of fiber which keeps insulin levels low so you don’t retain excess fats and sugars. The result is longer lasting energy and smaller fat cells.
Cardio is a Vital Ingredient
Cardio has always been vital for me when I have looked at shedding body fat fast. You can go down the ‘hard man’ path of core exercises but these just firm up the abs – they won’t do anything to the fat that lies behind the abs.
You have to take on the calories head on in a battle using cardio. Now my weapon of choice will always be running but you don’t have to stick to this method. Some people find running/jogging really hard on the body for various reasons.
If you happen to be one of these people why don’t you try walking for a few miles every day. It’ll only take about three quarters of an hour out of your day! Another choice would be to include your kids and take up a few bike rides every week.
I see more and more people turning to interval training when shedding body fat fast. Personally I prefer the more ‘out and out’ running techniques but the results of high and low intensity carido seem very promising.
What Works For You?
It’s all about what works for you at the end of the day. When shedding body fat fast you must find something you will not dread on a daily basis. Exercise is much easier when you enjoy it and don’t mind taking part in it every day!
