Many people think that our tummy is the storehouse of all fat. Hence they believe that once they manage to get rid of tummy fat, they will become slimmer. This is a big misconception. Our tummy holds only about fifty percent of our body fat. The rest of the fifty per cent of body fat is spread over the rest of our body. This is why it is essential for you to concentrate on other parts of the body as well and not just on your tummy. Since crunches and sit-ups can only trim your tummy, you need to do other kinds of exercises in order to burn fat from other parts of your body. In this article, I will tell you about these exercises.
1. So, how can you trim the other parts of the body? It is simple. If you just walk for thirty minutes per day, you will burn a lot of fat. Walking is also a great aerobic exercise, and puts all your muscles to work together. To avoid getting dehydrated, you should drink plenty of water before walking.
2. Another way to burn fat is to do yoga. This exercise can do wonders for your abs and back.
3. Some people have started using drugs or ‘weight loss supplements’ in an effort to get rid of tummy fat. Personally, I don’t approve of these drugs, and here is why – these drugs can do more harm than good to your body. While they are advertised as ‘natural’, ‘herbal’ and ‘safe’, they are neither herbal nor safe. Taking too much of these drugs can prove fatal for you. Further, the way it burns body fat, your body will soon go into ‘starvation mode’, which means that it will refuse to burn any more calories because it is afraid that you are killing it. When you reach this extreme point, burning fat will become even more difficult for you. So, you should use these drugs only if you have gained so much weight that it has become a life risk for you. If you take these drugs at all, you should stop the intake of these drugs as soon as you are out of ‘danger zone’; and then, you should concentrate on doing cardio exercises in order to get rid of tummy fat. There are several other tactics you can use to get rid of tummy fat. To learn more, [adrotate banner="54"]
