How to Lose Inches Off Your Waist
by: Yuri Elkaim, BPHE, CK, RHN
If you want to lose inches off your waist, then you need to start by exercising more and eating less. I'm sure you've heard that before, right? But are you applying what you know? Most people aren't and that's why "fatness" is holding roughly 66% of the North American population hostage!
People ask me all the time if sit-ups and abdominal exercises will help them lose stomach fat. My answer is always the same - NO!
You need to exercise with full body exercises that recruit a lot muscle and thus burn a lot more calories. Second, your diet needs to be spot on. Try reducing the amount of refined carbs and sugars in your diet because often these foods will make you bloated and ADD inches to your waist. Not good.
One of my Fitter U clients, Monika, lost 4 inches from her waist. I'll let her tell you a bit about her story:
I am now in the middle of week two of phase two. For anyone new, if you think that week one of phase one is easy (that was my opinion), just wait until you get to let’s say week three, not to mention phase two. I had never ever in my life worked so hard yet had so much fun.
I wish I took pictures of me before I began the program and now. What a difference! In just 6 weeks I have lost almost 20 lbs, 2 inches from my hips, 4 inches from my waist, not to mention the fact that my bottom is lifted and much firmer.
What I like the most is your guidance on my iPod. You have such a nice voice but you are so very much convincing and motivating. Love your program. Can't wait for the promised follow-up to it."
What she's describing here is her experience with my 12-week Fitter U fitness program. It is designed to be used on your iPod/mp3 player so that I can guide, instruct, and motivate you over your headphones. It's literally like having me right beside you as your very own virtual personal trainer.
Anyways, the reason the workouts are effective at burning belly fat is that they focus on full body exercises. As we mentioned above, this is the key to burning lots of calories in the least amount of time. The other component is that these iPod workouts are fairly intense. You see, most people spend too much time working out. They take too much rest and never really push themselves out of their comfort zone. As a result, they don't get the results they want.
Intensity is absolutely critical to helping you burn inches of fat from your waist - and your entire body for that matter.
So, in closing, just remember this - you can spot reduce! Sit-ups and crunches will never help you lose stomach fat. Instead, full body workouts at a good intensity and a healthy diet are the key to your success!
