The #1 Exercise to Lose Belly Fat (Easily)
Today, I want to share some essential information on how to get rid of belly fat fast.
Exercise contributes to about 15% of belly fat loss, and diet contributes about 85%.
The first step to burning fat is to switch the body’s fuel source from glucose to fat. Whether you burn sugar or fat depends on one hormone: insulin.
If your insulin goes up, you’ll burn sugar, and you won’t burn fat. If your insulin goes down, then you can burn fat.
Fat calories don’t influence insulin to any significant degree. But that doesn’t mean you can just consume unlimited amounts of fat and lose weight.
You also have to reduce your carbohydrates to force the body to burn fat. Once you start burning fat fuel, the body will develop a more available type of energy called ketones. Ketones are the byproduct of fat—energy your body can use as fuel.
Eating also increases insulin. To get into fat-burning mode, you need to lower your insulin by reducing your carbohydrates and doing intermittent fasting.
It’s also important to remember that even a little bit of carbs can stop you from burning fat. Consistency is key with this fat loss program. But, if you do this program 100 percent, your body will become an efficient fat-burning machine.
Getting into a state of fat-burning can help reduce insulin resistance, which may help correct a slow metabolism and help you lose stubborn weight. With these problems out of the way, you’ll notice a lot of success when you add exercise.
To help improve insulin resistance, try adding one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to your water and drink that two to three times a day using a straw.
The best exercise to burn belly fat is walking. Walking can help you lose belly fat even more than doing high-intensity exercise.
High-intensity interval training can help improve certain hormones and is essential for building muscle. But walking is better for losing fat.
It’s essential to walk an hour or two hours a day. Try using a pedometer and working on increasing your steps to 8,000 to 10,000 steps per day.
The most beneficial thing to do is walking along with high-intensity interval training. However, you will get more benefits out of walking.
