In today’s article we’re going to be going over 3 secrets to burn stubborn belly fat faster.
People have stubborn fat in all kinds of places, but the most common spots are the belly, thighs, arms and the love handles.
Even though stubborn fat is a little harder to get rid of, you’re going to be more than prepared to deal with all your stubborn fat after reading this article.
First let me just clarify that we can’t Target fat and no this is not one of the secrets because most people already know this.
You can’t choose a particular area of your body that you want to burn fat.
Even though you might have stubborn belly fat there’s no way to do certain exercises that will decrease just your belly fat.
Fat loss happens across our entire body. While you’re burning fat from your belly you’re also burning fat from your toes, hands, your face and from your entire body.
When your looking for a way to burn fat faster from a particular area, you’re really looking for a way to burn fat faster across our whole body in general.
The first way that you can do this is by depleting your gas tank and keeping that gas tank really low.
In a sense your body has a gas tank and instead of running off of gas it runs off of glycogen.
Most people think that glycogen only comes from carbs, but the truth is that protein can also very easily be converted into glucose and stored away for later use.
When your gas tank is full of glycogen your body will use the glycogen and spare your fat cells whenever it needs energy.
Whether that be energy for going about your regular day or energy for completing your workout.
Either way your body is going to prefer to use glucose.
The only way that we’re going to get access to your fat cells is after the glycogen stores have already been depleted.
If you can deplete the glycogen stores and keep them depleted, you can speed up the fat loss process.
So how do we deplete glycogen.?
Well one very simple way is by not consuming too much glycogen. Again protein as I mentioned above can be converted into glycogen.
Let me be clear, I’m not necessarily advocating a low-carb diet because low-carb diets are not the only way to burn through your glycogen stores and start burning fat.
You can do it a number of different ways but the key is to maintain a negative calorie balance in order to use all the stored glucose.
You can even do a pure carb diet where you only have carbohydrates and still burn through all the glycogen just by maintaining a calorie deficit.
First of all you have to maintain a calorie deficit. Second, you should incorporate some heavy weight training.
There is no better way to burn glucose then through anaerobic training.
Anaerobic training involves exercises that require you to use primarily glycogen rather than oxygen for energy.
Almost all weight training as long as the weight is heavy enough will be considered anaerobic training and will help you deplete your glycogen stores faster.
I recommended a minimum of 3 days a week of weight training, but with 5 days a week you’re going to burn through a lot more of that glucose. If your schedule allows it, try to do weight training more frequently.
Remember, once that glucose is out of the way that’s when you have direct access to your fat stores.
That’s actually why ketogenic diets work so well for fat loss, they actually switch your body’s main source of fuel from glycogen over to ketones that come from fat.
The second thing that you can do is fasting.
This is another excellent way to decrease glucose in your body and empty out the gas tank, but that’s not the only reason why fasting is so good for fat loss.
Insulin is your fat storage hormone. To make it really simple when your insulin levels are high it is virtually impossible to burn fat.
When insulin and blood sugar levels are low, glucagon is released to draw energy from your cells.
Instead of putting glucose into your cells this will pull from your cells.
Glucagon and insulin are opposites and you really are only going to get one or the other.
Again, to burn fat we want to try to keep our insulin levels low and insulin levels don’t get much lower than where they’ll be at when your fasting.
The point is that fasting is one of the fastest and the best ways to keep your insulin levels really low.
When you fast it’s a lot easier to maintain a calorie deficit throughout the day because you’re not eating calories for a whole portion of the day unless you’re the type of person that overeats when you’re hungry. That could be a problem.
Fasting should help you maintain a calorie deficit ultimately helping you empty that gas tank faster.
The last thing you can do for that stubborn belly fat is to increase muscle mass.
Increase Muscle Mass
You might be thinking “how’s muscle mass gonna help me burn more stubborn fat?”
Well in humans glycogen is made and stored mostly in the cells of your liver and your body’s muscle tissue (even though you can’t really change the amount of glycogen that you’re gonna be storing in your liver) you can increase the amount that you store in your muscles by building more muscle.
There’s something that you might have heard of known as spillover.
When you overfill your gas tank with too much glucose and there’s no more room to store the glucose in your liver and your skeletal muscle tissue the result is spillover.
In this process insulin is used to store the extra glucose into your fat cells.
By having more muscle mass your body will be able to use more glucose. That goes without mentioning the fact that you’re going to be emptying and refilling that glucose all the time by working out and then eating.
People that don’t do weight training or even worse people that don’t work out at all, they’re never emptying out that gas tank. They just keep filling it up.
What happens when you keep filling an already full gas tank? Spill over! That spillover will just lead to a vicious cycle of regaining that stubborn fat.
So building more muscle mass will increase the amount of glucose that your muscles can use. Also the weight training that you’re going to be doing to build up muscle mass will constantly be depleting that gas tank allowing you to burn stubborn fat as long as your diet isn’t high in glucose that you’re using to refill that tank.
Just to recap:
- Number one you want to empty out your gas tank by maintaining a calorie deficit and by doing a weight training program consistently
- Number two you want to fast in order to drop insulin levels to their lowest point to allow your body to draw energy from fat stores using glucagon.
- The third tip is to increase muscle mass throughout your body so you can avoid spillover.
