SPOT REDUCTION AND BELLY FAT

With an increase in weight, the belly fat also increases and belly fat can overstretched the abdominal muscles, causing them to become weak and loose  Even if jogging for an hour on the treadmill and still they don’t lose the belly fat. Many moms also feels bulging tummy even after pregnancy.

We all like flat stomach,six packs,beach body, but let’s get real, Achieving and maintaining a trim waistline doesn’t happen by magic — there are no special supplements, spot-reducing exercises, or body-wrap treatments that will shrink our waist in a week.Many people think we can do spot reduction, well that’s a myth, it’s not possible This concept is based on the flawed notion that we can “burn off” fat from a specific part of the body by selectively exercising that area.Many people call their belly a trouble spot.

TRUTH-So working hard only on one part or one muscle of the body will not reduce fat or do spot reduction.

FOR EG- Just doing ab exercise, they will not make belly fat disappear, they are good addition to a well-rounded workout routine, that does not mean they are not beneficial, this exercises will strengthen the abdominal muscles,will improve the tone and endurance of the muscles.

WHAT WE CAN DO -So its time to lift some weights along with cardio, strength training increases the amount of lean muscle mass in the body, thereby allowing the body to burn fat at a higher rate throughout the entire day. Lean mass has a higher metabolism than fat mass as muscle tissue is highly active, even at rest.) Eating nutrient-dense sources of protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats will also help promote muscle growth. For vegetarian pulses an legumes helps a lot with right amount of complex carbs. Beans and legumes are a good source of both fiber and protein.
