    Default Belly Fat

    Righty, this im sure has been answered before however please point me in the right direction.

    I am not fat, I would say that actually, im pretty damn thin, except my belly, its not even a big belly, it's pretty tiny, but it's really annoying me and I want it gone (it's the remainder of a much larger beast).

    I've been trying to lose it for about a year now and all that happens is I seem to lose tiny pieces of fat from everywhere else but the stuff on my stomach never seems to move and inch (or a milimeter!)

    I'm definately losing some fat, however i seem to be gaining weight and my belly wont budge, any ideas?

    much appreciated!

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    below is a general idea of what im up to.

    my diet is good, but not strict, a typical day will involve

    breakfast
    oat bran

    snacks
    2x coffees
    apple

    lunch
    ham sandwich (or similar)

    supper
    meat 2x veg sometimes a beer otherwise a cup of tea

    I cycle twice a day totalling about 45mins (pretty intense)

    I work as a barman so I spend all day on my feet lifting and carrying things.

    I am still working reducing fat around the belly. In those parts of the body where fat has resided for the longest time those fat deposits will probably be the last that the body rids itself of. First on last off. Ori Hofmekler in his book "Warrior Diet" refers to this as "stuborn fat". Ori explains in his book how to address stubborn fat. Eating a clean diet of fruits, vegetables, lean meat, beans etc...in order to detoxify and rid the body of poisons from many processed food (ditch the Captain Crunch). All those poisons have been accumulating for decades in those stubborn fat deposits. Exercise alone or regular dieting is not enough to solve this. Detoxifying the body as is explained in WARRIOR DIET is one way. I do WD and have much success. But I am still a work in progress. ..Dennis

    Do you strength train? If you don't that will limit your success in looking the way that you want.

    Strength Train + some kind of fasting(I use Eat Stop Eat but also Warrior Diet) could be your key.

    It's not about how hard you can hit but how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward!!

    Ok...look You just keep losing weight.... you can't excersize certain parts away, eventually the fat will come off of those places too. Now certain fats are better for you and therefore distribute differently like high fat veggies avocados almonds.

    1. Jump Squats – X30 Sec
    2. Leg Raises - X30 Sec
    3. Side to Side Push Ups - X30 Sec
    4. Plank – 1 min
    5. Double Crunch - X30 Sec
    6. Burpees – X30 Sec
    7. Mountain Climbers – X30 Sec

    Do these exercises at time told and then complete the whole series and then rest for 3 min and then do it again do the series for 3 to 4 times. But remember you need to do all. These all are equipment free and you won’t waste $0 on it.

    Cool, thanks for the advice guys, i've started to strength train and just generally watch my junk food intake a lot more than I was.

    I hope this will be enough.

    This has worked for me but I also go a step further and eliminate white flour and grains from my diet (except on Saturday which is my cheat day).

    Hey Hoxton,

    When you do leg raises, do you suck/hold in your belly throughout the exercise as stated in CC? Since starting CC and training my transversus muscle by holding in my belly, it has become natural for me to hold in my belly without effort throughout the day. This has helped my belly look not so big.

    Maybe this is a contributing factor to the look? Another benefit of strengthening the transversus is a decreased risk of hernias.

    A way to check for excess fat in any part of the body is to tense all muscles and jump up down in front of the mirror. Anything that jiggles is fat. I think Schwarzenegger used this trick...
