Workouts to lose belly fat: What are the best belly fat burning workouts?
Excess belly fat isn't just something to worry about from a cosmetic perspective, but also for it's impact on your health! Belly fat, also known as deep visceral fat, surrounds your internal organs and can put you at higher risk for diseases like cancer, diabetes and heart attacks.
The first and most important factor in burning belly fat is what you eat. Eating a healthy diet that has the right amount of calories for your goals, activity and body is important to reducing body fat and preventing it from forming. Since everyone's calorie needs differ due to their activity level, metabolism, etc. you may need to observe what kind of eating plan works best for you. Notice if you gain or lose weight when you adjust your portions, cut out packaged foods, eat more fruits and veggies, etc.
Some research even suggests that eating more healthy fats (like those found in olive oil, avocados and pine nuts) can help prevent belly fat accumulation. If your goal is to reduce belly fat, aim to eat a balanced diet that allows you to lose weight without sacrificing your energy level or health.
Skip the fad diets and avoid falling into overly restrictive plans that may create nutritional imbalances or push you to the point where you just want to give up and binge. My motto is everything in moderation!
When it comes to belly fat burning workouts, it's important to note that you can't spot reduce (AKA do hundreds of crunches to get rid of belly fat). You can, however, strengthen your core muscles to help your body appear more drawn in at your waist and build more lean muscle mass throughout your entire body to help burn more calories around the clock.
Some studies have also shown that high intensity cardio workouts (like HIIT) seem to have a greater impact on belly fat reduction than more endurance focused cardio, but I believe it's important to balance your workouts in order to avoid overtraining (which can actually cause weight gain if you aren't careful!).

My final thoughts on reducing belly fat: This is an important goal because excess belly fat can truly be detrimental to your health. But instead of focusing on looking good in a bathing suit, find a more personal reason to get motivated to get moving. Improving your health, having more energy for your kids or preventing the heart disease in your family may be the inspiration you need to make lasting changes to your lifestyle that can help you not only look better but feel better too.
