Burn, Baby, Burn: Getting Through Belly Fat

Burn, Baby, Burn: Getting Through Belly Fat

So, you are wanting to lose weight but you have self-imposed an impossible deadline. Your eyes may already be blurry from all the late-night Google searches on how to lose weight fast. While fad diets and celebrity-hailed supplements will promise you amazing results and the body of a Greek god, take a deep breath and check out this reality check. It’s not going to happen. Don’t be discouraged and blame the messenger, but the truth about dieting is that it takes work and lots of it. Whatever your weight and health goals, you are going to have to work for them. Fortunately, there are things you can do to help achieve success more rapidly, but you can just sit down and let the progress come to you. Any progress you make will be earned.


If you want to jumpstart your body’s ability to burn through the fat that has been stored in those unsightly places around the body, you should consider following the HCG diet. This protocol, in addition to a restrictive meal plan, uses injections of peptides to target the production of the human chorionic gonadotropin hormone. This is hormone taps into stored body fat for energy, giving the body the ability to lose weight as it burns through excess energy stores. This dieting plan is a great way to get on the right track with weight loss, and for long-term success, you can incorporate these other fat-burning tips into your lifestyle.

Strength Training

Although all exercise is beneficial, strength training builds muscle mass and increases strength by requiring your body to contract your muscles while encountering resistance. Usually, exercise routines devoted to strength training will have a person lift weight in order to gain muscle over time. Research indicates that strength training is beneficial for burning fat, especially visceral fat (the dangerous fat surrounding the organs in the belly). Resistance training can also be used to maintain your weight goals once they are reached. You don’t have to join a gym to incorporate these activities into your routine, either. You can use your body weight or a set of home weights to get started with these types of exercises.

High-protein Diet

When you fill your daily intake with foods that are rich in protein, you are able to reduce your appetite and burn through more fat. As your body loses weight, you could also experience muscle mass loss, but a high-protein diet can help preserve your muscles. The decrease in appetite should cause you to snack less, helping boost your ability to stick to a healthy meal plan and shed excess fat. Try to incorporate seafood, legumes, eggs, or lean meats into each meal or snack to level up your fat-burning potential.


Not everyone can tolerate the bitter nature of vinegar, but it has long been used for its health-boosting properties. Putting vinegar in your diet, whether through adding a few tablespoons to your water or using a salad dressing, can create feelings of fullness and decrease your appetite. Research evidence also supports vinegar as reducing body weight through fat-burning properties. Apple cider vinegar is the most effective and widely used for weight management.


You might be tempted to stay up late and get in some more exercise, but there have been several studies with correlations between weight loss and getting enough sleep. Go to bed earlier or get up a little later, but focus on getting at least eight hours of good sleep each night. Poor sleeping habits can lead to fluctuating hormone levels, some of which control appetite and feelings of hunger. Limit caffeine consumption and use of electronic devices in the hours leading up to bedtime in order to get the best benefit from your sleep cycles.

Healthy Fats

Even though you are trying to get rid of excess fat, by putting more healthy fats into your diet, you can help prevent additional weight gain. It takes fat a while to digest, so eating foods with healthy fats like nuts, avocados, or olive oil can help increase feelings of satiety for longer. Coconut oil is another element you can add to your diet for healthy fat, so swap the unhealthy trans fats that you consume with this healthier option.


Start eliminating sugar from your diet and watch the results on your belly fat. Sugar and its substitutes are found in a lot of diet foods and processed foods, but it shows up in carbonated and bottled beverages. Excess sugar gets processed into stored fat, making it an enemy of your plan to get healthy.

As you can see, these changes aren’t that radical, but they will take commitment if you want to see results. Put in the time and effort, and you should have no problems burning through your belly fat.
