Most people I know who want to lose belly fat tend to make a lot of mistakes.
You’ve made the best choice to join me in my Positive Image Fitness community so you’re on the right track, let’s just make sure you’re not making these 5 mistakes…
5 Reasons Why You May Still Be Fat
Reason #1 You’re Way Too Stressed Out: Believe it or not, stress is a silent killer. It shortens your life, wreaks havoc on your hormone levels, and sadly increases your fat storage by adding unwanted inches to your waistline.
You’d be surprised at how fat loss comes MUCH easier when you restructure your lifestyle. My Stronger Bootcamp Workouts can be real stress busters!
Your mission is also to incorporate healthy eating and regular sleep into your lifestyle to supercharge your fat loss results.
Reason#2 You’re wasting time on cardio: Long slow cardio is not the answer to burning stubborn body fat from your belly. As a matter of fact, not only is long slow cardio both ineffective, and inefficient, but studies have even shown that it is known to burn valuable muscle tissue from your body which will absolutely destroy your progress. Avoid this type of cardio like the plague if you want to burn body fat. Now, with that being said, if you are a lover of running and find it a stress reliever for you, then go for it, just be aware that running is not your best bang for your buck when it comes to fat loss.
Reason #3 You’re Confused About What To Eat: It’s a fact that 80% of your results come from the quality of food you eat.
Don’t overthink things.
Instead of eating processed food, just choose natural foods. Focus on quality protein, veggies and healthy fats. Then fill in the blanks with complex carbs. Remember, better nutrition will skyrocket your belly busting results.
I find that women tend to skimp on protein and that’s a big mistake. Protein helps to moderate your appetite and keeps your energy levels steady. Probably my BEST tip for fat loss is to include protein with every meal and snack.
Reason #4 You’re Going Through the Motions: The first reality is that many of you may not have even started working out…Is this you?
Or if you’ve started, you may not be challenging yourself enough. So make sure that every workout you push just a little bit harder, do a little bit more…
Keep in mind that if you haven’t exercised for a long time that you want to ‘ease’ into things, but once you’ve started, there should be no ‘easy’.
Reason #5 You Lack Accountability: Let’s face it, even if you know the right way, to eat, workout, and live a healthy lifestyle, you may not be motivated to do it. To avoid this situation, surround yourself with other people who have similar goals that will keep you accountable and I guarantee you’ll achieve some serious success.
I’m pulling for you! I know you can do this.
P.S.- When it comes to losing weight, there are two types of people…
Person A) This person says that they will start working out tomorrow, the next day, the next month, the next year and by the time they finally get started, they are 13lbs heavier, and 2-3 dress sizes bigger…
Person B) This person is an action taker
Be like person B and bust out those workouts!
PPS. If you find that getting enough protein into your day is difficult – THIS is a great supplement brand that I use.
