… 6 Steps to Get Rid of It Quick
Are you eager to get rid of your beer belly so you can make a statement at the beach, or fit into your favorite jeans? Aesthetics is one of the first reasons why people try to trim their tummies, but doing so is more than skin deep.
A large waist size doubles your risk of dying,[i] and is linked to too many chronic diseases to list — including heart disease, diabetes, cancer, depression and dementia. So not only is losing your beer belly important for your aesthetic self esteem … it’s essential to protecting your health.
How to Get Rid of a Beer Belly
6. Do Strength Training
You probably knew exercise was important … but strength training in particular will help you gain muscle, which is one of the best ways to help your body burn more calories, even while you’re at rest.
5. Eat Blueberries
Blueberries are rich in naturally occurring antioxidants referred to as phytochemicals. These antioxidants do amazing things, including zap belly fat. In a study by the University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center, rats that were fed a blueberry-enriched powder had less abdominal fat after 90 days (along with a host of other benefits, like a lower risk of diabetes).[ii]
4. Try High-Intensity Exercise
The intensity of your exercise also matters, so rather than jogging at a snail’s pace for an hour, sprint for a brief “high intensity” period, then slow down for a rest … and repeat for the duration of your workout. Research shows that high-intensity exercise training is more effective for reducing total abdominal fat, subcutaneous abdominal fat, and abdominal visceral fat (the most dangerous kind) compared to lower intensity workouts.[iii]
If you’re new to this, check out The NO Excuse Workout, which includes 2 DVDs each packed with 10 short, intense workouts. Every workout is exactly 4 minutes long, broken down into 8 specific sets. Each set lasts for 30 seconds – 20 seconds of intense exercise, and 10 seconds of rest. That’s right, the workout is ONLY 4 minutes … that’s why it’s called No Excuses!
The stress hormone cortisol promotes storage of fat in your belly. When you don’t get enough sleep, your body produces excess cortisol that can, subsequently, make your belly bigger. So getting proper sleep really is important to banish belly fat — as is engaging in other stress-relief techniques daily.
2. Cut Down on Carbs …
The low-carb diet is not just a fad; it works. Researchers from the University of Alabama showed that even a modest reduction in carb consumption helped participants lose deep belly fat and also lower total body fat.[iv] What types of carbs should you cut out first? Sugar, soda, cookies, candy, white bread, pasta, and the like would be a good start.
1. Replace Your “Youth Hormones”
Sometime in your late 20s/early 30s, your body’s natural production of youth hormones (HGH, or human growth hormone) begins to steadily decline. It’s no coincidence that around this same time you probably find you “can’t eat the way you used to,” losing weight becomes much harder, and your belly may have been growing ever since.
