Get A Two Piece Summer Bikini Body

So the warm weather is coming your way if it’s not already there, time to fight off that belly fat and get back into a two piece! Fat or weight that accumulates in the stomach area can be very difficult to lose. I did my research and put together some great tips for you to flatten and tone your tummy. Time to get that bikini body back.

Before I get into ways to burn stomach fat, let’s clear up some common misconceptions. First, you can’t lose fat in just one part of your body, especially your belly.  Second, you can’t just do crunches  and expect a flat stomach without cardio exercises and a well-balanced diet.

Exercise

Cardio burns calories and fat all over your body, while also improving your general fitness.  I would consider taking on a daily activity that makes you sweat, like running, biking or tennis. Aim for 30 to 40 minutes of aerobic activity 3-5 days per week.You don’t have to work your abs every day, do other workouts as well like even weight lifting. Stomach-toning exercises such as crunches and sit-ups do not get rid of belly fat. These exercises simply tone the stomach muscles and improve their appearance, so concentrate on burning calories for that bikini body. Get on a rigid workout plan. If working out is something you seldom do, expect some muscle pain for the first few weeks. It can get excruciating, but don’t give up. LGMedSupply offers TENS UnitsMuscle Stimulators, and Ultrasound Units for Pain Relief and Rehabilitation.

Diet

Develop a good healthy meal plan.Eat foods that contain omega-3 fatty acids, like olive oil, avocados, hummus and nuts. Go for foods rich in protein, like eggs, lean meat, and fish but keep your dairy intake at a minimum.

Also, green tea is awesome. Substitute lean proteins for red meat as often as you can in your menu. Red meat contains more saturated fat than skinless poultry and fish.
Include plenty of fiber and complex carbohydrates from whole grains and vegetables.
Avoid sugars like  nightly desserts, soft drinks and processed food as much as possible.

Drink plenty of water.

But what if you’re intentions are not to lose weight but just to flatten your stomach area?  Sorry, there is no other way. However, eating more high protein foods or drinking  a protein supplement will help you to gain back  “healthy” weight or muscle mass as you burn the fat.

Lifestyle and Genetics

Okay so what if you did everything i said and come summer you still saw no results? Truth is, even if you do everything right and start losing body fat, there’s no guarantee you’ll lose it from your abs. Your body stores and loses fat according to your genes, so you can’t control where or when you lose fat from certain places. Still don’t give up, it just might take a while for you compared to the next chic. Another thing that could be stopping you is your lifestyle. Skip the alcohol and quit smoking, it tends to raise cortisol levels, sending fat to your belly. Now pull that tummy in all day everyday! Practice the pull until it becomes comfortable, and soon it will come naturally. This helps to strengthen your muscles and makes working out easier.
