What Works To Burn Body Fat
by Doberman Dan
The questions I seem to
get over and over are always a variation of "how do I build muscle/strength?"
or "how can I get rid of this body fat?".
A few weeks ago I mentioned
to somebody that I'm dieting because I haven't seen my abs clearly in
over a year. They replied, "Why don't you just do some crunches?"
What a poor deluded person!
Don't we wish it were that easy!
See, I HAD been doing
crunches...for quite some time! I definitely have a well-developed set
of abs. They're just covered up with fat! And NO amount of crunches
is going to burn it off.
I hate to ruin your day
but I've found this idea of "spot reducing" to be an absolute
myth. If you want a six pack and want to get ripped, the only solution
is diet. You gotta eat the right things (and know what NOT to eat) if
you want less body fat.
And I hate to be the
bearer of bad news but it gets harder and harder as you get older, especially
if you're over 35. The reality of the situation is, after about age
35 you start experiencing a continual decline in testosterone and growth
hormone. Hey, don't kill the messenger! It's a fact of life.
Granted, you can positively
affect this with proper weight training and diet but it's never going
to be like when you were 18 unless you go the hormone replacement route.
So over the next few
weeks I'm going to share some things that have been proven to help you
reduce your body fat.
The first thing you can
do is start to restrict your starchy carbohydrates.
Cut out all breads, pasta,
potatoes, rice, fruit, anything with sugar, etc. Basically your only
source of carbs should be leafy green vegetables like lettuce, spinach,
tomatoes in small amounts.
The remainder of your
foods should be animal proteins and fats, eggs, cheese...basically anything
with protein and fat and no carbohydrates.
On this type of restricted
carbohydrate diet you can see some pretty rapid changes in your body
fat percentage. You might even start seeing noticeable changes within
2 to 3 weeks.
One thing I would recommend
on this diet is every 5 days or so have a carbohydrate meal consisting
of a sweet potato, rice, and oatmeal. Or really any kind of "clean"
(no sugar) low glycemic carbohydrates.
Obviously, this is just
a brief overview and I don't have the time or space here to go into
all the details. But with this information alone you can make some pretty
significant changes in your physique in a pretty short period of time.
I think you'll find that
by dieting in this way you'll be able to avoid most of the muscle mass
losses that seem to accompany traditional calorie restricted diets.
