Can You Really Lose Belly Fat in 1 Week? How to Know the Truth?

Updated on July 6, 2010

Rebounding is a healthy exercise to lose belly fat

The hub uncovers myths about losing belly fat in 1 week. People are always looking for quick ways of doing things, trimming off stomach fat in 1 or 2 weeks is the one that caters for the “quick and dirty” taste. If you searched the term “how to lose belly fat in 1 week” in Google, you will find hundreds of articles, trying to tell you how to do it. You might have seen lots of paid advertisements out there, promising you some secrets and proven facts about getting rid of fat tummy at the drop of a hat.

Chances are that you had tried all sorts of ways to reduce stomach fat and spent plenty of money on diet pills and sports club memberships, but there was little effect. You were getting a little disappointed and disheartened at the moment. Then you saw one of those articles, you read it, became excited about the idea, and couldn’t wait to start a new strategy right away. But the whole question is, can you really lose belly fat in 1 week? If the answer is yes, then can a sustainable outcome be achieved? Is it a healthy way to follow?

The same situation happened to me. I am not over weight in any way, but a bulging tummy has been my biggest nightmare for a long time. To solve the problem, I began to look for answers feverishly on the internet, searching all the free information I encountered. I even bought some e-books that promise immediate results. I tried each and every method. Hopefully things are going well for me gradually, I am trimming off, little by little, those extra inches around my waist, and I am seeing good results right now. :-)

Did I burn all the unwanted stomach fat in 1 week? Unfortunately no, none of those quick schemes worked great for me. So I come to the conclusion that there is no fast route to a flat belly for me. But the internet really helped me a lot, with all those free information out there, I was able to find some clues and came up with some idea. I found some rules to reduce belly fat and put that into practice actively. So my biggest suggestion is, you have to do some tests and find the answer by yourself. Either through reading books, or analyzing free information. or evening trying a new product. Believe me, none of the efforts is wasted, losing belly fat is like a jigsaw puzzle, you need to pick every piece and put them together before you get the final result.

OK, too much talk about myself. I am going to show you some of the basic things that I found very useful. Hopefully, they may be of help to you. Note, they are absolutely not a “drop weight fast in 1 week” plan, just some simple rules instead.

Actually, there is no healthy way to lose fat in just several weeks, but with much commitment and solid work you can trim off fat progressively. A diet and exercise can never be over-emphasized on the subject of losing stomach fat.

Exercise will help you to convert those bad belly fats into strong muscle around your body. You should work out and strengthen all your core muscle groups, not just your abs. Review all the exercise plans you have done in the past and choose one that you were most comfortable with, and then stick with it for a while until you see the results.

I am doing rebounding exercise regularly, and I find it very useful in reducing your stomach fat, it’s a healthy and safe whole-body exercise, you can do it at home on a small, round equipment called mini rebounder. You just need to bounce up and down on it several minutes a day. It helps you strengthen all your major muscle groups and burn extra fat.

Your eating habits also play a very important role in helping you lose belly fat. Typically, there are three kinds of diet plan that can help you get some results. They are, the diet plan with low calories, the plan with low carbohydrates and another with high proteins, you have to choose one of them that is suited to you and your tastes, then stick to it for a long period of time until you get there.

Limit your alcohol consumption is going to help you make progress in losing your tummy fat. Reducing your alcohol intake usually helps to lower the body fat level.

You must eat frequent small meals instead of eating 3 full meals. By doing this, you will be supplied with the required energy, which improves your metabolism without increasing your weight. 

One last thing I want to share with you is that, the whole process of reducing belly fat is actually a mental game, the biggest question is, how bad do you want it? If you want it bad enough, you will make it happen.

      There are really 3 key ways you have to lose belly fat. There are actually more detailed ways such as eating more protein and limiting carbs. There are specific fat burning exercises but it is the combination that makes it all work. I have an ebook at my site that explains it all.
