Having a fat stomach in all honesty looks disgusting to most people and can seriously contribute to poor health especially cardiac health.
Achieving a flat toned stomach is the main goal for men and women who go on diets to lose weight.
What we hope to achieve is to look fantastic, feel fit and energised, and ripped while wearing your swimsuit at the beach.
Having your belly out on show (if it is massive) can make you feel unconfident and bad about yourself.
Doing a quick search online, you can find thousands of great diets that will help you trim your stomach down to a size you feel more confident with.
However, you will also find a lot of information that really is not worth the time to read so look for reputable sites that offer great advice, but also join communities and learn from other people who are struggling to lose their fat stomach as well.
The problem lies here.
When you start a diet specifically to lose weight, you will not be able to immediately lose the fat from the areas of your body that you want to.
Fat cells do not disappear. They can get smaller, but the body will never get rid of them because it needs fat in its diet, just not constantly all the time!
When people have surgery to lose fat like liposuction, it is only a temporary solution unless you go the whole way and have a gastric bypass which is for really severe cases of obesity.
You still have to watch what you eat and exercise.
I mean why spend a shed load of money, having a plastic surgeon to perform liposuction, only to then go back to your old ways of stuffing yourself?
I know that sounds pretty harsh but to me it is obvious.
You CAN lose your fat stomach, but to do it properly you need to follow a process.
Losing the weight is the first hard step of the process, then building muscle and toning up your stomach coming next.
Just doing one of the steps is not enough to lose your fat stomach and tone up.
Remember, lose weight first, THEN tone up!
A couple of great exercises that you can look into are exercises for your heart (cardio), and then exercises to build muscle such as weightlifting.
Exercises to help lose the weight first can be simple things like just walking more, aerobics and swimming.
Doing both of these types of exercises will seriously help you to lose your fat stomach and building your muscle.
