Getting Rid of Belly Fat for Men and Women

I have accumulated belly fat over the years and so has my husband. We have both lost about 20 pounds of body fat year to date, but this belly fat is very stubborn. Do you have suggestions to get rid of it?” – Kate

Getting rid of belly fat and other stubborn body fat requires a combination of strategies that are far more effective than just reducing caloric intake. Men have a higher density of fat storage receptors in the mid section and women more so in the lower body. However women that are entering a stage of hormonal changes can encounter more stubborn midsection fat than in prior years.

Shut Off Fat Storage Receptors

Elevated stress from a variety of sources including exercise, work, personal matters, lack of sleep, excess toxins, illness and more, light up fat storage receptors like a Christmas Tree. Easier said than done, but reducing stress levels is very important for shutting off the fat storage receptors that make belly fat so stubborn.

The Best Nutrition Approach to Get Rid of Stubborn Belly Fat

Poor insulin sensitivity often plays a part in excess belly fat which must be corrected with several strategies to support rapid fat loss and the ability to keep body fat levels low over the long term. Using a low carbohydrate nutrition plan with high amounts of organically raised proteins and dietary fat can help to keep insulin levels in check. Frequently exercise and proper sleeping patterns also help tremendously. High Insulin levels can be associated with excess belly fat accumulation and additional risk factors. The 21 Day Fat Cell Cleanse Approach works extremely well in this situation due to a number of strategies built into the plan.

Avoid refined foods, trans fats, preservatives and foods fried in corn oil at all costs. Focus on organically raised protein/dietary fat sources with natural sources of carbohydrate which are activity dependent.

What Else Forms a Big Belly?

According to Dr. Eric Serrano MD the visceral fat that forms around the organs not only contributes to a more bloated belly, but also represents serious risk factors. Alcohol and refined food consumption contribute significantly to visceral body fat accumulation which is very stubborn in nature.

Belly Fat Burning Exercise Solutions

Our clients who have lost belly fat quickly use three high impact weight training sessions per week with very short rest periods between sets to pump up fat burning hormones. However short rest periods does not mean the intensity of the workout is low, the right loading parameters, speed of reps and super set pairings must be used to maximize success. Walking at a steady pace for 30 minutes each morning in a fasted state works very well and can increase daily productivity while listening to e-books and or podcasts. Finally, Rapid Fat Burning Interval sessions twice per week are also very helpful for getting rid of stubborn belly fat for both men and women.
