3 Secrets to Burn Stubborn Belly Fat Faster
In today’s video, we’re going to be going over 3 secrets to burn stubborn fat faster. People have stubborn fat in all kinds of places but the most common spots are the belly the thighs the bat wings 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 watching this video.
First, let me just clarify that we can’t Target fat burn and no this is not one of the secrets because most people already know this. You can’t choose a particular section or area of your body that you want to burn fat for and target it. So 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 whole body so while you’re burning fat from your belly you also give me burning fat from your toes hands your face and from your whole body. So when we’re looking for a way to burn fat faster from a particular area we’re really looking for a way to burn fat faster across our whole body in general. The first way that we’re going to do this is by depleting our gas tank and keeping that gas tank really low.
So your body has a gas tank and instead of running off of the 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 the fat cells is after the glycogen stores have already been depleted. So if we can deplete the glycogen stores and keep them depleted we 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 and again protein don’t forget can be converted into glycogen so I’m not necessarily advocating a low-carb diet here 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. I know this because I’ve done it myself before and I have a whole video about it.
So first of all you can have to maintain a calorie deficit second of all 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 their 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 so if your schedule allows 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.
So now instead of pudding glucose into your cells, this will pull from your cells. Glucagon and insulin are opposites and you really 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 dont get much lower then where they’ll be at when your fasting. The pont is that fasting is one of the fastest and the best ways to keep your insulin levels really low. Also when you fast usually it’s a lot easier to maintain a calorie deficit throughout the day.
My passion for fitness began when I was 14 years old. I naturally fell in love with training and haven’t stopped since. At 18 years I acquired my first personal training certification from ACE after which I opened my first gym in 2011, Gravity Training Zone. I'm now in the process of opening up my third location! I love to share my knowledge through personal training, my online courses, and youtube channel now with over 1,000,000 subscribers!
