Belly Fat Burners

Belly Fat Burners

Is there such a thing as a good belly fat burner?

What is the best belly fat burner? This question is usually asked by someone looking for a pill that will miraculously burn the belly fat from their stomach. If you have tried any of these so called fat burners, you were probably as disappointed as I was.

The truth about belly fat burners is that most of them are a complete waste of money. Although there are a few pills I would feel comfortable in recommending, taking a pill but not changing anything else is an unrealistic approach to discovering the best way to lose belly fat. By simply adding to your fitness program, you can increase your fat loss by 5 – 10% and save your hard earned money.

To understand the quickest way to lose weight, I want you to think about how long it has taken you to put on the extra belly fat. It didn’t happen in a few days, weeks or even months; it usually takes years to pile on those extra pounds. Because weight gain is so gradual, you hardly even notice until one day you wake up and it hits you in the face like a ton of bricks! You realize that you are close to being morbidly obese and, unfortunately, you’re not alone.

A large part of the population is overweight and this obesity problem is growing daily. As you dig deeper into the problem, you have to look at how you put on the weight in the first place. Most of us never ask ourselves how and why we put on the weight in the first place.

You see food is usually just a reaction to a deeper problem. Many of us eat when we are stressed, lonely or unhappy with a part of our lives that we feel like we can’t control. By discovering the deeper problem, and acknowledging it, you can begin to fix the problem. You will recognize that eating is simply the effect caused by whatever that problem may be.

This is where the Motivate Fitness program really begins to shine. Having access to your very own online personal trainer will help you discover what your underlying problem may be. They will help you figure out what is happening in your life that is holding you back and get you on track to living life on your own terms.

7 Foods That Burn Belly Fat

7 Foods That Burn Belly Fat

Believe it or not there are actually foods that burn belly fat. Instead of food adding inches to your belly, you can actually eat foods that will help you melt away that spare tire and lose stubborn belly fat faster than ever.

Yes, you read that right – you can actually eat foods that provide the quickest way to lose weight. These foods specifically target the belly area in women and men. When you include them in your diet, it will burn belly fat away faster than without these foods.

Monounsaturated fatty acids or MUFAs are one of the important fat burning foods to learn about. MUFAs are the healthy fats that target the fat around your belly area. It is relatively simple to add these to the foods to your daily diet.

We often get caught up in the amount of saturated fat or monounsaturated fat found in foods. The reality is that it’s not the fat itself that is the problem; the problem lies in the processing of fats. Most people are concerned with eliminating all fat from their muscle mass diet but the good ones are actually beneficial to your health.

Mufa’s make a great snack and burn belly fat fast

There are several MUFAs available to cook with or add to your meals to shrink belly fat. You can use any of the following oils in your meals to accelerate your belly fat loss: soybean oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, flaxseed oil, olive oil, peanut oil, or sesame oil.

Seeds and nuts also contain MUFAs and will help accelerate your fat loss. These make great snacks – just watch out for nuts that are heavily salted or have a sugar coating added. Plain and natural are your best choice to burn belly fat.

Avocados and olives are a great way to add MUFAs to your diet. Including chocolate in your diet plan may sound crazy but dark chocolate chips or shavings and semisweet chocolate chips can make a delicious, belly fat burning treat.

We have made a list of some super foods to help shrink your spare tire and reduce that belly fat fast:

#1 – A great morning snack that will help you lower your blood sugar levels is oatmeal. Just watch out for the sugary flavored ones. Stick with the natural and you can add berries later.

#2 – Protein powder is another great way to get rid of belly fat. Protein powder contains amino acids that help burn fat and build muscle.

#3 – Eggs provide you with vitamin B12 which your body needs to metabolize fat. Studies have shown that people who ate eggs for breakfast every day lost more weight than those who ate bagels.

#4 – Beans are another low calorie food packed with protein and fibre which will help you tone up and lose weight.

#5 – Lean meats and fish use more calories for digestion than carbs or fat.

#6 - Fish are full of omega 3’s which help prevent the release of stress chemicals that promote fat abs.

#7 – Green vegetables are high in vitamins and minerals, are loaded with fibre and have fewer calories than many other foods. Salads go great with any meal.

I hope these tips help! Stay lean.

Good Fitness Advice Will Help Achieve Your Fitness Goals

Good Fitness Advice Will Help Achieve Your Fitness Goals

Trust in a good source for your fitness advice

Fitness advice can be found in all sorts of places but there is a distinct difference between fitness advice and fitness advice that is right for you. The key is to find good advice from people who know what they are talking about. Many claim to know everything about exercise and diet because they are trying to sell their product or program. Many may bend the truth simply because they do not know the answer or because they are trying to make a quick buck. Take it from me, they are out there and I have run into my fair share. I am here to help you find valuable fitness advice that will benefit your fitness goals.

Be Realistic – If you are looking for advice on how to burn belly fat for example, and someone advises you to use a machine that will have your belly flat in a week, this is not realistic. If it seems to be good to be true then it is. Chances are high this person is just trying to make a sale.

What Works Best For You – Sometimes a personal trainer, for example, may give you fitness advice on the best way to increase muscle size. As you are training with them, you may feel uncomfortable for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you feel like they don’t know what they are talking about or maybe they just aren’t listening to your needs and training you in the wrong way. Trust me – there are plenty of trainers on both sides of the spectrum – good and bad.

Who Does What? – Just because you have a professional giving you advice on how to work out does not mean that they are a jack of all trades. As matter of fact, many personal trainers are not qualified or allowed to give detailed advice when it comes to supplements and diet. Be sure whomever you are getting your fitness advice from, that they have the qualifications. Another example is, if a diet pill company supplies a pill to lose belly fat, it doesn’t mean that they know how to perform certain workouts.

The Caring Professional – Perhaps the best advice that I can give you, which I am qualified to do, is to find your advice from someone who cares about your fitness goals and what you are trying to achieve. This person will be honest with you, for example, if they feel your aerobic activity alone isn’t cutting it, which it probably isn’t, they will let you know. It’s tough to know who to trust with helping to sculpt your body. You have taken the first step which his asking for help, and it’s frustrating if you don’t run into a trainer who knows how to train properly.

If you are looking for an online personal trainer to help get you on the right path, give Motivate fitness a try. I guarantee that the team I have assembled will get you on the right track and help keep you there.
