Thousands and thousands of push-ups and thousands and thousands of crunches, this is all needed if a person wants to get rid of the belly fat! Seriously, increased physical activity is definitely needed, but it does not have to be so drastic. For a start, nothing more than cardio is needed for activating the body and putting it into heightened energy consummation state. More energy required will eliminate more calories, and if that exceeds the amount gained from food, fat burning process starts. But a person needs to be careful because sometimes that lack of energy is compensated by dissolving the muscle tissue, which is not something desired while losing weight and creating a strong and fit body. Anyway, the body and muscles have to be active as often as possible.
Cardio exercises should be done by those who need to reduce extra weight and basically, all workouts that include constant movement of the body while low level of strength is applied should be included (jogging, swimming, aerobics, pilates).
Intensive workout will burn more calories and therefore, belly fat elimination will happen faster. Also, exercises that target only the abdominal region should be done and those are sit ups and crunches and all the possible variations of those two forms. These exercises will consume certain amount of energy and they will tone the muscles, so six packs will be created at one moment. To increase the effectiveness of exercising, a good dieting plan has to be used also. It does not have to be rigorous, with small amount of calories allowed daily, because physical activity needs a lot of energy. But it is important that the food eaten is healthy, based on fruits and vegetables, with small amounts of meat for supplying the organism with proteins.
It might not be possible to reduce the belly fat in the matter of days, even weeks. But persistent training and eating healthy will get you to the wanted goal and that is a fit abdominal area, without excessive fat and with strong and visible muscles.
