Most people put on weight when they start college. Some say it is to do with extra alcohol, junk food, poor schedule. Whatever it is, you may be returning home for summer a few pounds heavier than when you went away. Here are EdoGrant’s tips for loosing that stubbon belly fat. These are not just reblogs I have personally tested and tried all these techniques and they geniuely work. Here we go:
One good rule if you want to hit your fat fast and hard is: ‘Do twice as much exercise. Twice as often’ – eg, I used to run 20 minutes every other day. Now I run 40 minutes every day. This is tough. It’s supposed to be. Your body really starts to burn fat after 30 mins of running, anything less and it’s not going to change your shape. The trick is to do this for a month or so, however long it takes to get to your desired shape. And then halve your efforts to maintain.
Pilates. The most effective work out I’ve ever done. Ideally, you want to be doing muscle and toning exercise straight after your run. This makes the muscle toning routine extra effective at burning fat. The same rule applies as above, you do it this way until you reach your desired shape. Then it’s just about maintenance so you can take it easier.
Breakfast and Lunch, as a guide, should be 80% protein/veg and 20% carbs. Dinner should be 100% veg /protein. Eg. museli or porridge and fruit for breakfast, veg curry with lentils and/or chick peas for lunch, large Chicken Ceaser Salad for dinner. Again, just until you reach your lusted-after shape then return to normal and ignore all fad diets.
- Have healthy snacks: flapjacks, fruit, seeds/nuts, Bombay Mix, celery and hummus, carrots etc.
- Drink loads, and I mean loads, of green tea. I don’t know if this helps you loose weight, it could well do, I think I heard about it somewhere… anyway, it tastes great and is really good for you.
- Coffee is all good (probably, after all, Christain Bale used to substitute coffee for food when he needed to loose weight for a role)
‘I want sweets’ or ‘I don’t want to run up that hill’.
You must defend yourself against these complaints with acceptance. You need to accept that your body is finding it tough and not try to fight these uncomfortable feelings:
‘Yes, this hill is hard but it wont kill me’ or
‘yes I would love some chocolate right now but that doesn’t mean I’m going to eat some’.
You need to accept the fact that this will be tough for you. Once you have accepted that fact, you transcend it and the whole process will become easier and more enjoyable.
