Shift That Stubborn Stomach Fat :

Shift That Stubborn Stomach Fat

There aren't many of us who can honestly say they don't need to lose a few pounds. How frustrating is it though, when the scales show the weight coming up but that stubborn stomach fat just won't shift?

To see your stomach muscles men need to have about 10% of body fat, and women 12%. The figure is slightly higher if you just want to be toned, without actually seeing the underlying stomach muscles. Check one of the many sites online that will calculate your body fat ratio for you. This is very simply done by inputting your height and weight. Be accurate though, don't add on an extra inch or knock off a few pounds. You could end up having to lose a bit more weight that you thought in order to shift that stubborn stomach fat, or you could have to lose less.

You need to increase your exercise, particularly in the cardiovascular area. Swimming is the best all round exercise available. It works every muscle in your body, but without putting the strain on your body thanks to being supported by the water. This will work wonders in shifting that stubborn stomach fat.

You don't need me to tell you to eat healthily, but increase your intake of fat busting super foods. Eat them in a raw state wherever possible, as steaming or boiling takes away vital nutrients. Shifting that stubborn stomach fat will be greatly helped by eating 5 small meals a day. This will boost your metabolism, which will burn off fat quicker, as well as giving you more energy.

So now you know how to shift that stubborn stomach fat, what are you waiting for? You have nothing to lose but the flab!
