How to Burn Stomach Fat Fast

Knowing how to burn stomach fat fast can get you into your bikini this summer. I bought a new bathing suit this summer that was one size smaller than my old bathing suit. Start today, there is still time for you to lose that stomach fat and get into a new bathing suit this summer.

EXERCISE NOW - Walk away from your computer and exercise right now. Take a walk around your neighborhood, lift weights, swim, run, play tennis, play soccer with your kids, mow the lawn or your favorite exercise. Do it now. Do not procrastinate. If you want to lose stomach fat now, you need to get started right now. Plan to do some kind of cardiovascular exercise everyday for a minimum of 30 minutes, but try to work up to one hour as soon as you can.

You will need to begin an exercise routine that you can do every day. One that is not intimidating. Start at the level that you are at and slowing increase. Your exercise program should be a combination of cardiovascular exercises that get your blood pumping such as running, walking, skiing, tennis, or swimming and weight lifting exercises to build muscle.

It is very important to build muscle because it will burn fat for you all day and all night long. Muscle needs energy and it burns fat to get that energy. You will need to do weight bearing exercises to build muscle. Make sure that you build muscle evenly throughout your body. This is the easiest way to burn fat and I know that you can do it.

WEIGHT BEARING EXERCISES - Do weight bearing exercises three to five days per week. Make sure to give your muscles a break by alternating from day to day what muscles you are working on. Here are some muscle building exercises that you can do without any equipment. You can do sit-ups or crunches, squats, lunges, pull-ups and lifting your kids up.

If you have a set of dumbbells you can add even more exercises to your routine.

If you have a gym membership, take advantage of all of the machines that they have. Ask for help on how to use them if you do not know.

LIQUIDS - Drink plenty of water every day. A minimum of eight glasses of water per day in addition to any other liquids that you may drink. Remember that tea, coffee, soda and milk have dehydrating effects and do not count as your water intake for the day. If you weigh more than one hundred and fifty pounds, you will need to drink more than eight glasses of water per day. Increase your water intake approximately two hours before exercising so that you begin your exercise well hydrated.

EAT HEALTHY - Eat healthy with every bite of food that you put in your mouth. After you have begun your exercise program and started drinking a healthy amount of water, it is time for you to eat healthy as well. Eating healthy is simple: one half of every meal should be vegetables, one quarter of every meal should be meat that is low in saturated fat and one quarter of each meal should be whole grains. Snacks should be a fruit, vegetable, nut, seed, yogurt or lean meat.

You should avoid fast food, processed foods, foods with added sugar, foods with enriched flour, foods with high fructose corn syrup and foods with partially hydrogenated oils.

MOTIVATION - Keep up your motivation to lose your stomach fat by reminding yourself of your goals. Make a poster of your goals that you can hang on the pantry door or another convenient location.

Keep up your motivation by surrounding yourself with people that encourage your goals and the right tools for success. For example, if exercise brings you down, buy yourself a new exercise outfit that you love to wear each time you exercise. If eating is a problem for you, then set yourself up for success by filling your refrigerator with foods that are healthy and easy for you to eat. Have containers of cherry tomatoes, baby carrots, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, sliced up cantaloupe, sliced up watermelon and other healthy snacks readily available in your refrigerator. When you go out, take a cooler of healthy food with you so that you are not tempted by fast food.

You can burn stomach fat fast if you start a new routine and keep with it.
