Every so often… GiGi needs to fast from her celebrity eating ways… That being said, Ray Lehigh decided to take a bite for her! (hey 3rd person!)
Check out his huge stew… On how us ladies (sorry gents, this ain’t targeted to you) can rid our tummies of belly fat and look like… [INSERT FAVORITE CELEBRITY ABS HERE]
When your tummy starts to protrude from your midsection, a lot of problems will start to arise. Your pants will no longer fit, your blouses and shirts will start to look awkward on you.
Even some jerks, male or female, will start to tease you, causing you to lose confidence in yourself. Aside from this, abdominal obesity has a strong correlation with cardiovascular diseases, so it would be best to take care of the problem as early as possible. Why would you choose to suffer when you can fight those stubborn adipose deposits?
The root cause of belly fats is net energy imbalance. This is where an organism consumes more calories than it actually uses or discards. Protein intake within a 24-hour period is inversely related to abdominal fat collection. Estrogen, the ‘female hormone’ actually stops lipase enzymes, which are the enzymes that break down fats and proteins. This is why women fatten up easier than men.
Women, particularly those who are in the age of childbearing, tend to store more fat in parts like the buttocks, hips and breasts. When her sex hormones start to decline as she ages, the distribution of body fat changes as well, which leads to the woman having to carry more body fat in the midsection.
Aside from inherent causes, potbellies are formed because the abdomen is usually the most seldom used part of the body in daily activities. Simply applying spot-reduction will not immediately work because you would need to get rid of the fat deposits in other parts of the body before the fats in your abdomen will get used up.
Workout Routines for Belly Fat Reduction
There will always be methods to get rid of that annoying abdominal obesity. You can lose belly fat by doing daily workout routines and eating a balanced diet.
The most basic and most common routine that women engage in is running. Actress and recording artist, Jennifer Hudson, lost 60 pounds by waking up at 4 am to run for one-hour followed by an hour-long workout in the gym.
Running is an over-all workout routine. Even for just 30 minutes a day (consistently), it can greatly increase the rate of metabolism in a person. Also, since it’s a whole-body exercise, it can develop the tissues in your whole body into muscles. For every additional pound of muscle mass in your body, you can burn up to 35 to 50 additional calories per day. By getting rid of the excess calories everywhere else, your body will eventually start to use up the adipose in your belly, giving you a balanced and well-toned figure.
If you wish to target the abdomen more closely, add belly workouts like sit-ups and squats to your workout routine. By making direct use of your midsection muscles, you can focus the energy consumption in that area. You just have to remember to keep your daily routine as constant as possible so you won’t only lose your belly fats, but you can keep them off forever by altering the metabolic process itself.
