Belly fat is notoriously difficult to lose. From our experience, it’s often the last place fat is lost, so it takes a bit of time and patience to see results. Unfortunately, you can’t “spot reduce” fat in specific areas, but ensuring you control your energy balance over time is the best way to lose belly fat. We have put together some tips and facts to help you further.
A word of advice from us: building muscle is hard. If you are worried about building excess muscle because you have started lifting weights as part of your exercise program, or you are doing an extra fifty sit-ups a day, stop worrying. Building a lot of muscle takes the right nutrition, workout program and consistency. Also, the aesthetic look that most people are looking for (toned and sculpted) actually requires a combination of fat loss and muscle building. “Bulking up” requires lifting heavy weights and lots of food over a long period of time (some natural testosterone helps as well!). All of which are difficult to attain, especially if you are trying to lose fat.
