The Truth About Melting Belly Fat
Is getting in shape and losing weight and belly fat at the top of your "to-do" list? If you're like me, getting started can be difficult; especially when you're busy with kids. No matter how motivated you are it just seems like there aren't enough hours in the day. Not to mention, you're always exhausted.
If you've tried everything and just can't seem to lose that weight and belly fat this message is for you. Until you fully understand how to harness the power of your metabolism you may never lose the belly fat and lose weight. When it comes to slimming your belly and tightening your tummy it's all about the moves and the foods.
Below are the most effective things you can do to lose the bulge around the middle and tighten the tummy. Put down the excuses and let's get right to your transformation. You've waited long enough. It's time to start seeing the results that will keep you super-motivated to stay on track. You'll lose 1 pound today and see visible results in less than a week.
All you have to do is Do It. This is a plan that works every time if you commit to it 100%. You'll get out of it whatever you put into it. While 50% effort will get you some change, 100% commitment will bring you that radical change and transformation you've been wanting for a long time. Let's go.....
SLIM DOWN AND LEAN OUT BY NOT SKIPPING BREAKFAST
Most women swear that their metabolisms slow down after having kids. While that's certainly true to an extent, it's really habits that cause us to gain weight. Many of us either skip breakfast altogether, which slows metabolism, or we grab a handful of carbs on the way out the door which act as a fat magnet.
The solution when you're short on time and can't make an egg white omelet - make a slimming smoothie which can boost your metabolism by 25% if it's made with a clean whey protein like the LynFit Complete Protein. I tell my clients to not add yogurt, milk or fruit to their morning smoothies. That combination is guaranteed to add on the weight and is perfect for our growing kids, but not for those who are losing weight.
No smoothie shake; no problem. Simply mix your whey protein into your morning coffee in place of milk or creamer and VIOLA, you're done. Not to mention you'll slim down from using less milk or creamer.
Not a coffee drinker; got you covered: Mix 2 tablespoons of vanilla whey with ½ cup of water and enjoy your own "melt fat milk". Make sure your whey protein says it's metabolic boosting however as not all whey is created equal.
END THE HEAD HUNGER GAMES IN YOUR HEAD
Simply put, don't eat in between meals. Busy moms and housewives are under tremendous amounts of stress which causes us to feel hungry all day. Also, we are afraid to feel hungry. Well guess what? Hunger is actually good for you. It's a sign that your body is beginning to burn fat as fuel. Don't stop the fat-burning process by grabbing a handful of "whatever". Instead, drink a large glass of water. Even better, enjoy hot water with lemon and read something encouraging. You'll start to see your belly fat melt faster than you think. Not to mention, you'll certainly feel a lot better.
If you have more than 10 pounds to lose, your hunger is all in your head. Learn how to end the head hunger games by not eating. Eating when we aren't hungry is a bad habit and creates a vicious cycle of eating "just because".
GET HELP WITH APPETITE SUPPRESSANTS
When it comes to slimming your belly it's always about reducing the carbs. But what to do when you crave carbs?
Appetite suppressants are like floaties for a child learning how to swim. They can help get you through the stress, cravings and temptations of a new eating plan. We've come a long way from caffeine pills and other stimulants that left people feeling jittery. The latest advancement in appetite control will also give you the edge on carbs.
It's all about creating a specific supplement strategy where you take specific appetite suppressing supplements, such as the LynFit Pure Omega-3, along with a high protein snack at a specific time. You must take one before your appetite becomes a problem. I suggest you take (1) LynFit Carb Edge and (1) Pure Omega-3 with lunch and then again at 3pm with your snack. It's safe and has been shown to work in randomized placebo-controlled clinical trials. If you do fall into the carb trap the White Kidney Bean Extract found in the Carb Edge will block 65% of the unwanted carbs from being digested, without the horrible side effects of other carb blocking supplements.
