How to Lose Belly Fat Fast!

In this article we will cover how to lose belly fat fast and most importantly, ensure that you lose fat not weight; there is a big difference between the two!

You see, it is actually very easy to lose weight but it can be quite difficult to lose fat!

Losing weight is easy because often the weight that is lost comes from a variety of sources including, water, protein (lean tissue, which includes muscle), carbohydrate and fat! Virtually any weight loss program can help you lose weight from these sources.

On the other hand, losing fat is much more difficult simply because fat is considered by the body to be a valuable source of energy. In fact, because fat is such an energy-dense tissue, it is ideally suited for keeping you alive during a famine! That is the reason why it is so hard to lose. Your body doesn't want to get rid of it just in case you do experience a famine!

The reason why our body does this is because our physiology is almost identical to that of our ancestors from thousands of years ago when the main causes of death were infection and starvation.

The human body hasn't yet adapted to today's modern lifestyle and is still always prepared for the possibility of starvation. Of course, the best way to prepare for starvation is by preserving our fat stores!

As a result, you need to be very careful when selecting the correct weight loss, or rather, fat loss program for you. It is absolutely imperative that the program you follow makes an effort to help preserve your lean tissue, like muscle, whilst burning the maximum amount of body fat at the same time.

Unfortunately, very few weight loss programs do this. The vast majority of them focus almost exclusively on the scales and how much weight you lose rather than how much fat.

Whilst the scales may be a guideline, the major problem with this approach is the fact that if you do lose a lot of muscle on a particular weight loss program, your metabolism will slow down making further weight loss more difficult and increasing the likelihood that you'll put the weight back on a short time after following the program.

If you're serious about losing fat not weight and especially if you want to discover how to lose weight fast, then you must follow these 3 basic strategies:

  • Use the correct principles

  • Use a 'multi-directional' approach

  • Create a lifestyle
  • By following these 3 strategies you will be able to easily achieve your weight loss goal as well as lose all the fat you want.

    Now let's consider each of these strategies for how to lose belly fat fast individually:

    How to lose belly fat fast strategy 1:
    Use the correct principles

    The correct principles for how to lose belly fat fast are based on physiological laws the govern that human body. The fact is, there are laws that govern the human body and it's ability to lose fat. These laws are immutable just like other laws of the universe, like the Law of Gravity. These laws work for everybody and they work 100% of the time. There is no way to 'short cut' these laws to somehow get results faster. The only way to get results faster is to apply more of these laws in your own life!

    The problem is these laws require effort! They require you to perform activities that tell the body that it is not being starved and can therefore easily use the stored body fat as a fuel source because there is plenty of food coming in to the body.

    Most people, when they want to lose weight (fat), don't want to have to put in effort! They want it to be easy. In fact, they want it to be as easy as it was putting on the weight in the first place!

    Unfortunately, this attitude means that these people are easy prey for promoters of dubious weight loss programs that offer people 'solutions' that require little, if any, effort. Sure, these programs can help people lose weight fast, but ultimately, the weight they lose tends to be the wrong type of weight. It tends to be muscle, water and stored carbohydrate with very little fat!

    Then, almost always, when they finish the program they tend to put all the weight back on, if not more! This results in them looking for another weight loss program or diet to try.

    Nevertheless, there are weight loss programs that do focus on following the fundamental physiological laws that govern the human body. These programs give people the down-to-earth, honest truth about weight loss without 'sugar coating' the facts!

    A good example of a successful weight loss program that gives people the truth about weight loss, provides them with the correct principles and then shows them the path to follow is my e-book, Look Good, Feel Great!



    How to lose belly fat fast strategy 2:
    Use a 'multi-directional' approach

    How to lose belly fat fast strategy 3:
    Create a lifestyle

    The final step you need to take in order to lose fat not weight is to create a lifestyle for yourself. This involves selecting the correct principles that suit you and your lifestyle and that you enjoy! This is ideally how to lose belly fat fast!

    Select as many as you can and then begin incorporating them into your lifestyle. The more you use, the faster your results will come.

    Since everyone's body and lifestyle are different, everyone needs to follow a plan that suits them as an individual. However, it is important to keep in mind that the principles themselves do not change. The principles work for everyone and they always will work because they are based on physiological laws.

    However, you do need to select the principles that suit you so therefore, everyone's plan is likely to be different.

    In order to achieve the results you want and more importantly, maintain the results long term, you need to create a 'lifestyle'. This simply means that you need to keep using the principles on an ongoing basis; for the rest of your life!

    It is impossible to follow a system for a period of time, achieve results and then return to previous lifestyle habits without your body returning to its previous state as well. It is absolutely imperative that you create a lifestyle for yourself by selecting the principles that suit you. If you do this you will be amazed at how quickly you can lose weight (and fat) and finally achieve the results you've always wanted!
