You’ve reached your goal weight, but there is a problem: you are still plagued by stubborn areas of belly fat. Dieting isn’t touching them, and your workout hasn’t made a dent. What is there to do? Some people reach this point and turn to extreme methods such as having the fat surgically removed through liposuction. However, often surgery isn’t the best answer.
Vary Up Your Exercise
If all you have been doing to work out your belly is standard crunches, a little variety in exercises may be all it takes to remove your belly fat. Adding weight resistance is one option; this can be done on an abdominal machine or by simple holding weights (plates work best) behind your head as you perform your crunch.
Another thing to consider is the type of crunch you are doing. Standard crunches are most effective in working the upper portion of the belly.
Other exercises are better for targeting the lower abdominals: leg raises, reverse curls, as well as many poses from yoga and Pilates are ideal lower belly workouts. One key thing to also remember is that cardiovascular exercises really work to remove lower belly fat, even when nothing else does.
Wrap It Up
Of course, even the best diet and exercise program can use a little help sometimes, and fat loss wraps can be just that. They work by helping your lymphatic system to target fat and toxins in your body and get rid of them through your body’s waste removal system.
These wraps can start to work the very first time you use them. Wearing one around your midsection can help to remove belly fat, especially when combined with an effective diet and exercise program.
In other words, your best bet for beating your battle with stubborn belly fat is to attack it on all fronts.
