Exercising And Nutrition

Exercising and nutrition work hand in hand when it comes to burning that stomach fat. I am sure you have heard the statement “abs are made in the kitchen” before, that is what all the top trainers are saying. In order to get to the next level of ripped or in order for us to lose a few kilo’s or pounds of fat we need to consider eating well. By eating well I mean eating healthy foods that are good for us.


Here are a few more things to consider, even eating too much of the “healthy foods” can cause you to gain weight, because you would be consuming more than is needed by your body so eventually all of that extra food would be stored as fat.

3 Types of Foods That You Should Avoid

To make losing weight easier I have 3 kinds of food which you can get rid of or minimize in order to make losing weight easier for you. These three types of foods are unsaturated fats, sugar and refined wheat products. I will explain to you why you should minimize or totally rid your diets of these foods below.

  • Unsaturated fats – these are fats which are bad for you and contribute to increasing your bad cholesterol levels, unsaturated fats are found in fast foods and canned foods, unsaturated fats are chemically modified fats so that they become solid and shelf stable. Unsaturated fats are the reason why it is best to stay away from canned goods and opt for fresh food instead.
  • Sugar – Avoid eating sugar products or anything that is considered to be a sweet, these contain a lot of empty calories meaning these types of treats are not nutritious at all and only play a role in making you consume more calories, more calories means if you are not very active you will keep piling on the pounds.
  • Refined wheat products – These products are just as bad as sugar, they add on large amounts of unnecessary calories piling on the empty calories which do you no good. An example of a refined wheat product is white bread, buns etc. These kinds of foods are very popular so it is often hard to change your diet and to avoid such foods, imagine eating a burger without the bun that is the kind of life style you have to lead. I know of diets where the people on the diet have to stop eating any bread and “white” carbohydrate products altogether, and they have seen some great results just by cutting out bread.

Getting Great Results...

As I stated in the beginning nutrition and exercise work hand in hand so making the necessary changes in your diet will benefit you a lot but you are going to have to be active so that you see great results, it is up to you whether that means that you join a gym and lift some weights or you participate in sports, start jogging in the mornings or evenings, take up swimming as your new hobby or maybe in you are into combat sport you could start doing some kick boxing or some mixed martial arts. Being active helps you to burn calories, increases you aerobic fitness, and helps to increase your metabolic rate so that it is easier to burn those extra calories so that they are not stored by your body as fat.
