Avocados are a double-whammy to belly fat. First, they’re packed with heart-healthy monounsaturated fats that dim your hunger switches; a study in Nutrition Journal found that participants who ate half a fresh avocado with lunch reported a 40 percent decreased desire to eat for hours afterwards. Second, unsaturated fats like those found in avocados seem to prevent the storage of belly fat.

Doing exercises together is more fun. You can help each other to get the most from the training sessions. You can motivate each other by talking about your progress and sharing your experiences. You can also do a competition together on who lose weight faster or who can reach a training goal. It is easier to follow a healthy lifestyle together.
Fasting can be a useful strategy for many people, but it’s not a magic bullet. What matters most is burning more calories than you take in. I talk about fasting here: https://www.muscleforlife.com/the-definitive-guide-to-intermittent-fasting/
“By losing estrogen, you lose some of the normal contour of your body,” explains Michael Roizen, MD, chief wellness officer at the Cleveland Clinic and the founder of RealAge.com. “Instead of weight settling on your hips, it goes to your belly.”
Ok–so to be crystal clear, my BMR is 1896 and based on moderate exercise adjusted is 2936. I may have misused adjusted TDEE when I meant adjusted BMR. Therefore Cutting I should be 20-25% less than the 1896 or 1450-1516 calories a day (at least 175g protein or 700 calories from protein)–if doing it the same as you for fastest results…..just don’t think I could eat that few a day.
Omega 3 fatty acids are lauded with such attractive qualities as delaying ageing and fighting degenerative diseases. However, it’s less well known that eating fatty fish is also excellent for weight loss (when accompanied by a balanced diet and regular exercise, of course). Foods such as mackerel and herring are high in protein and ‘good fats’ that help to break down some of the more dangerous fats in your body. Try to eat fish twice or thrice a week.
Fruit juices are loaded with sugar, and don’t carry the benefit of fiber that comes with eating the fruit itself. If you’re trying to lose belly fat, keep your consumption of fruit juice to a minimum.
“Research continues to show that enjoying soup before a meal reduces the total caloric load of that meal, which can help banish belly fat,” says Julieanna Hever, author of The Vegiterranean Diet. “Filling up on high-fiber foods like a low-calorie soup is so satisfying that you end up eating less overall, thereby reducing weight.”
“Middle-age spread” can appear at any age, but women may notice it most as they hit 50. Even if the number on the scale is the same as it has always been, your waistline may expand as your proportion of body fat to lean mass changes. The good news is that you can take measures to minimize belly fat, even after you hit the half-century mark.
Taken delivery of my meltdown pills this morning and it says to take upon wakening but wondered if still the case as I don’t train till 6pm after fasting from 10am. Your thoughts and advice would be great please Mike
I have been trying to identify the reason but honestly I am lost. I have followed the same workout routine (4 days a week weight training + 4 – 5 days cardio) which was supposedly designed to maintain muscle while on caloric deficit.
Also make sure that you line your rib cage up with your stomach. Now, roll your shoulders back and let them drop down gently and centre your head over your spine. Elongate your neck by imagining a string gently lifting the crown of your head.
Do not reduce calories, this is a huge no no. Reducing calories puts your body into starvation mode, and your metabolism will slow down to compensate. Your body does not know the difference between starving and diet. When you reduce your calories, your metabolism slows down so that you do not starve to death. The reason you stopped loosing weight is because your metabolism has re adjusted to your new calorie intake, if you reduce even more, it will slow down even more.
You would notice that losing belly fat involves a lot of crunches and crunch variations. Now it is high time you do reverse crunches. Like the other crunch exercises, reverse crunches are another good exercise to lose belly fat, especially for women.
In your post here it says —> About 4 Hours After a Light Dinner of Protein and Veggies, If Doing Cardio That Day:About 15 minutes before doing your cardio, I take the following: (10 grams BCAAs or 3-5 grams leucine, 100 mg caffeine,1 serving of Phoenix or 2 pills green tea extract, .2 mg per kg of yohimbine)
Choose snacks that are rich in whole grains, protein and mono-saturated fat. For example, a protein smoothie with Greek yogurt, almond butter and oatmeal or a slice of seeded whole grain bread covered in peanut butter will fill you up longer and provide much-needed nutrients.
There is no need to “eat back” the calories expended from HIIT cardio. The TDEE calculation already takes into account all exercise activity. So, your cutting target is 20-25% below TDEE. There is no modification to it required. Simply shoot for that target.
The transversus abdominal muscles are located at your sides, below the obliques. Often called “lower abs,” these are the muscles that women who are trying to lose their belly after pregnancy should concentrate on. Exercises that call for raising the legs instead of the upper body are effective at strengthening the transversus.
Exercise is one of the best ways to stop this middle spread, but with such an array of options, it’s hard to know where to start. The best machines to lose belly fat aren’t the ab rockers, rollers or coasters. You’re more likely to lose belly fat by regularly using the treadmill and resistance machines at the gym.
As said before, measuring your waist with the tape is the easiest way to check belly fat. Measure your torso at the level of your navel. As per the official guidelines, measure your abdomen from just above the hip bone or the iliac crest, just where it intersects the line dropping down from the middle of the right armpit. Breathe normally while taking the measurement, and don’t hold the measuring tape too tight against the skin. Those with a waist size more than 33 inches are at risk of developing chronic heart disease.
I also, as much as possible, kept alcohol to a minimum. I went for month/two months at a time without any. I think that is a key for fast weight/fat loss. No point in being good all week with exercise/your diet to blow it all by having 8 pints of empty calorie lager on a saturday nigh imho.
Consider buying an outfit that you really want to wear, but in a smaller (but still achievable) size, and hang it on your door. Your desire to finally be able to wear that outfit may encourage you to work harder.
