I used to get so ‘down in the dumps’ when I first started out with my fitness regime – no matter what I tried I couldn’t seem to shift that little spare tire around my waist.
To make matters worse it seemed like EVERY television character was able to boast a complete six pack – even the ones in their 50’s!
So this post will be covering a few tips on losing abdominal fat that I managed to get to work for me. None of them are what I’d call easy but all of them are effective if you show the necessary dedication…

1) Don’t Stop Moving
The big bad monster that grows around our waistline is called visceral fat – once it moves in it’s a nightmare to evict!
The good news is that visceral fat does not stand up that well to aerobic exercise. This means running, biking and swimming will take it on and win every time ( if you stick at it long enough! ).
You are looking for a decent form of aerobic exercise that gets your heart pumping. A recent study claims that running a distance of over 12 miles a week will tackle your visceral fat in style!
2) Hit The Protein
When you get over the age of 30 your body starts to wave a little white flag as it produces more insulin. This is mainly because your muscle and fat cells aren’t responding to the body the way they used to ( you’re getting old mate! ).
Now this insulin is very good at one thing – promoting fat storage ( especially around the belly area! )
A good diet filled with a lot of protein will protect you against insulin resistance.
3) Sugar, Sugar
I cannot begin to explain to you how horribly destructive sugary drinks are to your body shape – avoid them at all costs if at all possible!
These types of drinks are uniquely harmful because they love to target an individuals metabolic health. You see, sugar is made up of glucose and fructose – the latter sometimes struggles to get metabolized by the liver.
When you pile in the nasty sugars the fructose levels get too high for the liver to handle properly. As a result it turns it all into fat which likes to hang around the belly area.
It’s also worth noting that sugar in liquid form doesn’t satisfy our body like solid form sugar. The brain doesn’t really ‘get’ that it’s just had a sugar shot from the drink which leads us to consuming more!
4) Ever Heard of Carbs?
There’s a simple rule of thumb in the world of weight loss that works EVERY time – when people cut carbs, their appetite goes down and they lose weight.
Keep your eye on your refined carbs intake ( white bread, pasta etc. ) and keep your protein intake high.
Carbs tend to leave their mark around the organs and the liver – not the nicest area to have fatty deposits really! But there is a bright side – when you hit up a low-carb diet you are reducing the fats that lead to possible disease.
5) Stay on Track
Most people are now fully aware that what you eat is what you are! With this in mind – why do so many people have no sort of clue what they are eating?
They happily jump on diet bandwagons and start eating high protein options and low sugar treats without any real idea on what they contain.
If you want an awesome diet result you are going to have to turn yourself into a bit of a tracker – tracking things for a while is absolutely essential!
Now please don’t let this put you off, you are not going to have to spend every waking hour writing stats down – you just need to do it every now and again.
Just give yourself some sort of idea where you are going with what you consume. A simple Google search will bring up thousands of results for FREE calorie calculators – pick one and start using it!
Don’t forget – visceral fat isn’t just a nasty fat that stops you from looking good in a swimsuit, it’s also the most dangerous form of body fat. Use these tips on losing abdominal fat to improve your shape AND your overall health. Good luck!
