Hello Dear Friends and welcome to my Blog!
Spring is here! Everyone is trying to get their body ready for an awesome Summer! I am so excited and I know most people feel the same way; the beach, the weather, the festivals, the ice cream!!! It is all so good. Men and women start training seriously and work very hard to get in shape, losing extra kilos, and tone their body to look good in that sexy swimsuit!
However, I always say that we, as fitness trainer aim to promote health above all, and we work on improving your health condition before anything else, and your body is a reflection of your general health, and thus being fit is an indication of a good physical and mental state and this my friends has a lot to do with the way you spend your day, your life style and eating habits!
I always receive inquiries from clients asking me how to lose the belly fat or how to get the six packs and the shortest answer is usually adjust your diet and do some training, but if you want to get effective results you have to dig deeper into your lifestyle and habits and this is when the transformation takes over.
So, to help you know the right answer effective answer, I took the initiative to inform you about the tummy types that you might have and what caused this fat accumulation and of course how to make it over again, healthier, sexier and better looking!
Please read ahead:
The first type is called “punctured tire” belly fat
It results from sitting too long in one place and eating too many sugary foods. The first thing to do to get rid of this belly fat is cut down or eliminate soft drinks and alcohol. Then start eating a healthy diet that includes fruit and vegetables, whole grains, lean meats and good fats such as olive oil.
The second type of belly fat is called “stress” belly fat
It is common in people who are perfectionists (thus high-strung and constantly stressed out) as well as those with digestion and other stomach issues. The way to get rid of this belly fat is eat three well-balanced meals a day, don’t skip any, and cut out the junk food (including soft drinks) and caffeine.
The third type of belly fat is called “low belly” fat
It collects in the lower abdomen and results from lack of exercise and eating the same foods on a regular basis. It’s the type of belly fat that otherwise slim people get if they don’t get enough exercise. Getting rid of this type of belly fat involves getting more exercise and eating a well-balanced diet.
The Fourth type is the ” Mommy Tummy: During pregnancy and birth, the abdominal muscles divide in order to allow your uterus and tummy to expand. Almost half of mothers have this condition, known as Diastasis Recti, straight after birth and while it mostly corrects itself around 30 per cent still have it after five to seven weeks, while others have it permanently unless they seek treatment.
The fifth type of belly fat is called “bloated belly” fat
It results from eating foods that disagree with your body and that lack essential vitamins and minerals. Getting rid of this type of belly fat involves eating a well-balanced diet that includes foods and beverages your body tolerates well.
So the first step in getting rid of your belly fat is figuring out which of these four types you have. Once you’ve done that, you figure out how to get rid of it. However, before starting any diet and exercise regimen consult your doctor. Tell him or her what you plan to do (or ask for suggestions if you aren’t sure what to do) and ask if your plan is a safe one. Then get a complete physical so you have a baseline to track your progress.
