Eight weeks seems like a very short time to lose most of your belly fat or to get slim. In most of trying to lose belly weight, people usually give up because it takes so long to achieve. If you suffer from having a large amount of belly fat, you run the risk of various fat related diseases and you will need to put all your efforts into losing your overall body fat first.
If you lose weight in general, the belly fat will make up a major portion of what you have lost. You might not reach your desired weight goal in such a short time span, but you can definitely make some noticeable reduction in your waistline, if you put in all of your effort and dedication. It is nothing special, you simply need a good diet and exercise routine. Read on to learn how to lose your belly fat in 8 weeks through determined and patient effort.
#1. Take Care of Yourself
The first step before you start your eight weeks will be to understand your body better than before. Inform yourself about basic human biology and how your diet and exercise affects it, so that you can make your weight loss efforts more productive and get quicker results.
If your stress levels are higher than average, you are at serious risk of gaining belly fat through binge eating. Mental stress may cause a state of imbalance in your mind that could lead your body to release a fat storing hormone called “Cortisol”.
This hormone redirects all your fat towards the belly area, something which we definitely don’t want to happen. The crux of the matter is simply that whenever you feel any kind of stress or anxiety during your daily routine, take a few minutes for a break and relax. Doing some yoga, meditation and breathing exercises will let you calm down enough to prevent a stress induced eating binge.
#2. Belly Killing Foods
Another main step towards weight loss is to completely change the way you eat. You will need to change your diet completely and replace all the junk food you used to eat with healthy vegetables and fruits and other sources of nourishment. These healthy foods will flush out the waste from your body while at the same time putting you on the right track by eradicating your daily hunger cravings.
- Cottage cheese.
- Peanut butter.
- Dark chocolate.
- Green tea.
- Leafy greens.
Your tummy fat loss can be greatly accelerated by adding various exercises along with your new food routine. HIIT (high intensity interval training) workout routines are considered to be the most effective exercise routine category to lose fat, so I’ll be suggesting a high intensity routine from the very get go. Maintain a HIIT exercise schedule throughout the 8 weeks and you might lose all that fat in a shorter amount of time.
Another exercise routine is known as “The Quick Cardio Blast”. It is an intense sprint that is used to fuel the burning of fat and encourages the production of growth hormones. If you are desperate enough to reach your goal of losing your belly fat in 8 weeks, perform this workout with an empty stomach. Try this cardio routine and perform it 4 times in total during a 15 minute span.
- Sprint for 1 minute.
- Walk/jog for 1 minute.
- Sprint on an incline for 1 minute.
- Walk/jog for 1 minute.
