If you’ve been really careful with what you eat, you’ve been exercising well and you’ve lost some weight but you still can’t shift the weight around your belly then it’s time for a re-think.
Yes, you should be proud of yourself, it’s no mean feat losing weight!
Carry on eating healthily to keep those pounds at bay but perhaps consider trying some other methods to slim down your tummy area.
We’re going to show you why you’re losing weight but not belly fat and we’re also going to tell you what you can do about it.
1. You Need To Change Up Your Workout
Great – you’ve lost weight but your tummy isn’t as flat as you want it to be.
If you’ve been running religiously 3 times a week or you’ve hit the gym every other day doing the same workout for 40 minutes then you may well have reached your peak.
Your body needs to be constantly challenged.
You’ve lost the weight, your body looks better, it’s more toned than ever before but now it can cope well with the exercise – it needs a different, more challenging workout.
If you belong to a gym, speak to the trainer in charge and ask him or her to devise a different program to target belly fat (HIT training is great, it’s training in short, sharp bursts with very brief rest periods in-between).
Remember, every time you’ve mastered an exercise regime, it’s time to make it just a little bit harder.
