Stomach fat has been and still is a problem of many people.Even though it is possible to reduce extra weight and to burn a lot of fattissue, it is obvious that there are some areas of the body that are not so easilyshaped. Some of those areas are belly (stomach) area, legs, buttocks, underarms. It mightbe said that the stomach is the most problematic here, so how to burn stomachfat effectively?
When we say burn, we actually mean 'to spend'. The whole point ofthe fat burning is in spending more calories than it is taken with food. This can bedone in two ways, with dieting and increased physical activity. Of course, itwould be for the best to combine those two.
Dieting can focus extreme weight loss in the matter ofweeks, with strict rules and with putting the body on the verge of starvation.This is effective diet, it cannot be denied, but the health of the organismmight be harmed in some way and that is simply not good because the point ofweight reduction is enhancing the health status. Dieting can also focus slowweight loss with the help of balanced diet (5 meals, all nutrients included,maybe just a small reduction of carbs).
When physical exertion is added into the equation, calorieswill burn! As for the exercising, cardio workout is excellent for the start. Itdoes not require much strength, it can be done at home too, and if done properlyand regularly, it will tremendously help the weight reduction process. Cardio isalso good because it affects many muscle groups at the same time, thus increasingthe rate of the metabolism.
Stomach area accumulates more fat simply because the cellsunder skin layers have more affinity towards the fats that come from food. Thisis some sort of defensive mechanism which is preparing the body for starvation.Of course, starvation never comes and the fat just keeps pilling up until itbecomes a problem. The mentioned dieting types and physical activity must be used,but there are some things that should also be known. Eating small meals manytimes a day is much better than having three large ones. Small amount offood can pass through intestines easily and quickly, but, eating often willkeep the metabolism active, and energy will be spent. Also, it will reduce thediameter of the stomach by reducing the diameter of intestines. Walls of intestines contain elastic fibers, so a lot of food will definitely stretch it andmake the stomach look big.
