When you think about stripping away belly fat and achieving that
coveted washboard look, you may think of magazine cover models and pro body-builders. You may also think of
expensive supplements and training regimens so strict they would violate most labor laws.
Shredding that stubborn roll around your middle, you assume, is the exclusive property of athletes, the
genetically gifted and those who can afford their own full-time personal trainer and head chef - which is why I
created this site.
Losestomachfatformen.com is a belly-busting hub for the everyday guy. Here you'll find the best secrets and strategies plus fool-proof
blueprints designed to seek out and destroy the fat around any man's middle. No supplements, no ab-gadgets, no
hype, just proven diet and exercise principles that work.
The fact is, no matter how big your belly or how many times you've tried to lose it, you can whittle down your
waistline and achieve all of the glory that goes along with it - attention from the opposite sex, clothes that fit,
health, vitality and yes, going shirtless at the beach.
It all starts here with the flat-belly equation. A trifecta of essential ingredients, which on their own aren't
all that surprising, but when combined create a metabolic firestorm that will flatten your belly, improve your
health & build lean-muscle in record time. Below we've distilled each of these ingredients into practical,
easy-to-use principles that you can apply today! It's simple. Follow our action plan and that spare tyre won't
stand a chance! To kick things off, we've tackled the two biggest pitfalls for flat belly success. Take heed
and never let them stand in your way again!
If you listened to all the flawed advice out there to lose belly fat and reveal your abs you'd be popping every
diet pill & doing upside-down crunches until you passed out. Here's the absolute truth.
FACT: There is no single best exercise to burn off your belly and usher in
your abs, least of all the crunch or sit-up. Not only do they sabotage your belly-busting efforts, they
violate the body's unwritten rules for effective and permanent fat loss results. So until you've demolished
your gut, consider your workouts a crunch-free zone.
THE REALITY: When you exercise, your body burns blubber
uniformly, not a from the targeted trouble spot over your stomach. So instead of peeling out dozens of
crunches, your priority should be on decreasing your total body fat percentage - we show you the most
effective strategies below!
Starving yourself may cause quick weight loss at first - but fasting actually decreases the activity of the
enzymes that release fat from the cells. In short, the less you eat, the more stubborn that spare tyre becomes.
But this doesn't give you ticket to splurge on junk. A food quality restriction is in effect. Think of your body
the way you gas up your car. Fill it with the wrong fuel or let your tank run too low and your body will have no
choice but to throttle back your fat-burning motor (known as your metabolism). THE FIX: Keep your tank topped with a steady influx of small-healthy
meals - you'll stoke your metabolism and build a body that burns fat on autopilot.
Your life is ruled by the clock. So you need to find a way of eradicating your belly
in the time at your disposal. How does this sound? A cardio workout that takes you to the limits of your
fat-burning capacity in half your normal workout time.
Welcome to the world of interval training, a turbocharged training style that ditches long, boring cardio, in
favour of short, sharp high-intensity bursts of activity paired with intermittent periods of active
THE PAYOFF: Not only will you shave minutes of your workout, you'll
unleash a killer blow to your belly with a bout of extended post oxygen consumption (EPOC) where your
metabolism continues to run in high-gear long after your workout's over.
THE RESULT: you'll burn more fat and continue to do so while
you chill-out! Better yet, you can tap into these
benefits any way you want - running, swimming, cycling, rowing, boxing, skipping - whatever your
INTERVAL TRAINING EXAMPLE PROGRAM USING SPRINTS: Sprint for 15 seconds
(near max effort) then ease back to a slow jog for 30 seconds. Continue in this high-low intensity
pattern for 5 minutes before taking a break for 3 minutes. Repeat this entire process 3-4 times.
Regardless of your activity, the key here is to alternate high-intensity bursts of activity (anywhere
from 5 - 30 seconds) with low-intensity 'active recovery' periods. Start with a work-rest ratio of 1:2
(i.e. 15 seconds max efforts, 30 seconds active recovery) before experimenting and moving on to more

There's more to burning off your belly than wearing out your runners. Sitting for
long periods - think desk work and sat in front of your TV - switches off an enzyme (lipase) that prevents fat
storage. So if you aren't active, it doesn't function. FAST FIX: Take regular standing breaks and increase your daily activity
levels. Take the stairs, swap your car for pedal power and stretch regularly. The more you move, the
more you stand to lose!
Losing belly fat isn't easy, but building muscle while you burn the calories will
increase the rate at which your body breaks down (metabolises) fat over the short-term and long-term,
making it quicker and easier to get shot of that spare tyre. What's more, pumping iron will help you alter
your overall body composition, giving the impression you've exchanged flab for lean muscle.
When it comes to managing your middle with weights, there are two key areas to consider, building up your
abdominal muscles & shredding the layer of fat covering them. We've got the skinny on each below.
Abs don't start showing when you build them; they show when you've built all the muscles in your body and cut
the fat around your midsection. THE KEY: Your muscles don't just sit there and do nothing, they're
metabolically active and cost energy in the form of calories to build and maintain. To strip away belly fat
and rev your metabolism, your goal in the gym should be to engage as much of this fat-fighting tissue as
Exercises which 'isolate' small, single muscle groups like the bicep curl, triceps extension, leg extension/curl
and variations of the crunch don't make the cut here. Instead, build your routine around large multi-muscle moves
like the squat, chin-up, push-up, bent-over row, lunge, bench press, dead lift, shoulder press, lat-pull-down,
seated row and upright row. You'll finish faster, burn more calories both during and after your workout and release
a flood of muscle-building hormones, helping you slim down faster.
SUPERCHARGE YOUR FAT LOSS: Your body comes fully equipped with its own
fat-burning generators. They're called mitochondria and function as microscopic powerplants that turn
nutrients, including fat, into fuel for your muscle cells - and your workouts can crank them up. The more
intensely you exercise, the more mitochondria you bring online.
A great way to crank up the sweat-factor in your workouts is to ditch the traditional 1-2 minute
rest between exercises with circuit training. Do this by stringing your multi-muscle moves together and
perform a single set of each exercise back-to-back until you arrive back at your starting point. Repeat this cycle
3-4 times, then finish with a cardio interval session and start looking forward to the beach!
Once you've cut your total body fat to approximately 13% and can see your abs it's time to sculpt and strengthen
your core. The most effective way to do this isn't with traditional sit-ups. It's with exercises that require
spinal alignment and steadiness, such as variations of the plank and movements which force your abdominals to
resist motion. Here your abs do all the work to keep you stabilised and lower your risk of back injury. Do this by
using heavy multi-muscle moves like squats and deadlifts and doing the suitcase carry: hold a dumbbell in one hand
and walk for increasingly longer distance while maintaining perfect posture.
AB MYTH BUSTED! Core workouts often carry the tag that high-rep workouts
add definition and make your abs grow. The reality is your progress will plateau if you do the same
exercises, regardless of reps. You need to intensify your workout to teach your abs to stabilise your
bodyweight. Add either more-challenging variations of body-weight exercises, unbalanced moves like the
single-leg lunge for example, or weighted abdominal exercises once the unweighted versions become too
MAXIMISE YOUR RECOVERY: Think more work targeting your abs leads to
faster, more visible results? Think again. Over-training can quickly de-rail your progress and lead to a
flurry of motivation killing symptoms like increased muscle laxity (softness), irritability & injuries.
FAST FIX: Your abs are just like any other muscle in your body and
perform at their peak when given sufficient time to rest and replenish. Leaving a minimum 48hr recovery
window between training sessions will help you hit the gym refreshed and energized every time.
Sure, fasting might make sense for an obese, sedentary guy, but a bloke who's
taming the treadmill and hitting the weights each week needs to be provisioning his body with the right
nutrients to support his lard-losing efforts.
All of this starts at the breakfast table. Research has shown that downing a high-fibre breakfast, such as
whole-grain cereal before exercise burns twice as much fat. On the flip side, low-fibre refined carbs - think
waffles, pancakes and pastries - raise insulin levels which limits your ability to use fat for fuel.
Need a break from cereal? Fill your bowl with energy-sustaining oats. You get slow-digesting carbs to fend of
any sleepiness, fibre to keep you feeling fuller for longer & a generous dose of braw-buffing protein to refuel
your muscles. Buy the plain variety and flavour them yourself with mixed-berries, cinnamon and honey. Eat right for
the rest of the day with these 6 foolproof strategies to manage your midriff.
Ditch the soda. Consider water your new ally in the battle of the bulge. It aids in
digestion and boosts your metabolism by up to 30%. Keeping it cold maximises this effect, as your body seeks
out and destroys extra fat warming it up before it can be absorbed. To find out how may litres you should
drink per day, divide your weight in kilo's by 30. Arm yourself with a water bottle during the day and guzzle
at first sight!

know to destroy belly fat - for good!
Craving the sweet stuff? Lusting after lollies and chocolate could indicate you're
looking to boost your mood. When your happy chemicals are bottoming out, you need a quick lift. Or it could
mean you're just low on energy. Your body absorbs refined sugars of the sweet variety much faster than any
other type of food, giving you immediate fuel.
THE FIX: A hit of complex carbohydrates will boost you energy levels for
longer without the inevitable blood sugar-crash which leaves you feeling irritable and ravenous. Have a baked
potato or some whole-meal toast. Then head-out to the supermarket and stock your pantry with these
energy-sustaining, flat-belly power foods. You'll satisfy your appetite, boost your immune system and have
energy to burn.
Maximise your protein fix with lean-meats, fish and low-fat dairy for more muscle and
less lard, fast. Aiding in post exercise tissue repair, research has shown that a high-protein will help you
lose lard and hold on to muscle. Tuck in and aim for 30% of your daily kilojoules from this source safe in the
knowledge that the best cut will be the one around your middle.
After an interval training or weights session at the gym, you need to feed your
muscles double-quick. Solid foods can take hours to digest and only release 4-7g of protein per hour. Have a
whey protein shake after training. It's the most easily digested protein you can feed your muscles. Add
fruits, berries and yoghurt for added flavour and nutrients.
For breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks, make plants the centre of your diet. Only 20%
of men eat the recommended 5 servings of fruit & vegetables a day. So if your regular meat-to-greens ratio
is 70:30, flip it. Salads, flash-sauteed vegetables, raw vegetables dipped in olive oil, whole-fruits,
smoothies - diversity is the key to upping your intake, you really can't go overboard.
When it comes to flattening your belly with nutrient-rich body fuel, sticking to any kind of plan is hard work.
Occasionally splurging will keep yourself from falling off the wagon without any sense of sacrifice. Go ahead, have
a beer or that slice of pizza, just don't over do it!
IT'S GUT-CHECK TIME! A wobble-free stomach doesn't come in the form of a
magic pill or slim-down shake. After all, if it were as easy as marketing companies say, wouldn't we all be
sporting a washboard waistline by now? Transforming your midriff from flab to ab requires dedication, effort
and an action plan you can and want to stick to over the long term.
