NEVER Do These Three Things If You Want To Lose Stomach Fat
I was duped.
And I am sure YOU were as well.
Back in the 80s, there was a lot of hype on losing belly fat and getting a lean, RIPPED midsection.
If you are like me, you might have done every abs routine out there.
You Performed HUNDREDS of crunches, only to still have that SPARE TIRE sitting around your waist!
I still think that if I was not playing football at that time I too would have had issues staying lean.
I know how you feel, because for years my clients felt that way too!
But I want to let you in on a little secret: EVERYTHING you know about SIX-PACK ABS may be misleading and WRONG.
Let me explain…
History Of Weight LossEvery day, you walk past a magazine rack and see the fit models with RIPPLING ABS and flat tummies.
They all look AMAZING.
And you may think they were sculpted straight out of granite!
But you know what? They are HUMAN, and are just like you and me.
They worked HARD for their trim and tone figure.
Just like everyone else has to.
For years, I did crunches and an abs routine I built from the hundreds of abs exercises out there.
Did they work?
Of course NOT!
Because I was doing it all WRONG!
My abs and all my Core Strength were ACTUALLY a product of all the Multi-Joint , Multi-Plane exercises I was doing as an ATHLETE which caused me to use more muscles TOGETHER to perform these exercises and movements and thus BURN MORE CALORIES, allowing me to stay lean even when I was lifting HEAVY and NOT doing CARDIO! Go figure HUH ?
This is where my FUZION Formula Fitness Program was derived.

it will only strengthen the muscles UNDER your FAT
But not all is lost…
You may be able to get the six pack look that you have been dreaming about.
If you avoid these top 3 BLUNDERS, you may get a flatter and firmer stomach in less time than you think!
3 Things to NEVER Do for a flat, firm stomach
Tip #1 Do HUNDREDS of crunches
There is nothing wrong with doing crunches.
It may tone and strengthen your abs.
But it will do NOTHING for shedding belly fat.
You see, crunches target the muscles which are directly UNDERNEATH your fat.
your abs, but do nothing to target your fat
What to do instead: Try performing core strengthening exercises as part of your warm up.
Core exercises are designed to fatigue your core and get them firing correctly.
Also try including moderate to high intensity exercises into your routine.
Research shows that short bursts of exercise may burn more calories for DAYS AFTER you are FINISHED.
Tip #2 Not Eat Your Fiber Before Noon
One of the best ways to lose your belly is to make sure you are eating enough fiber.
And that leads into another important step: make sure you eat breakfast.
Breakfast is one of the most important meals of your day, and really gets your metabolism firing for the rest of your day.
A meal with plenty of fiber may also help curb your appetite.
This may keep you full for longer periods, which may prevent you from overindulging or feeling REALLY hungry throughout the day.
What To Do Next: Incorporate more fiber into your morning.
Not only might fiber help you feel full, it may also help you lose weight.
Fiber binds to nutrients in your stomach, which slows the digestion process down.
Fiber also sucks in a lot of water, which again, keeps you feeling full.
Tip #3 Sacrifice Your Vitamin D IntakeWhen you are striving to lose your belly fat, most people cut calories.
And this makes perfect sense!
But you should know that cutting calories may cut an IMPORTANT nutrient out of your diet, rendering you unable to burn MORE FAT.
Let me explain…
There is new research showing that people who are lacking in vitamin D, may also have increased fat stores.
This is very bad news for people who want to lose stubborn belly fat.
Researchers determine that children who were lacking in 25 (OH) D, were more susceptible to obesity than their lean counterparts.
What To Do Next: Try to increase your vitamin D intake.
Exposure to the sun can increase the production of vitamin D in your skin.
Or, try including low fat milk or organic milk to your diet.
Not only will you increase your vitamin D intake, but you may also get the perfect mix of high-quality proteins and carbohydrates.
And that spells F-A-T L-O-S-S!
Now Go Out And Get Your Six-Pack
You and everyone else wants the six-pack abs look.
But what you are doing MAY be shutting off your fat burning potential.
Eating the right foods and getting plenty of fibermay leave you feeling full for longer periods of time.
Also, knowing when to work out and what exercises to do may build lean mass and may help…
Lead you to GREATER weight loss and to avoid overeating.
AVOIDING these three MISTAKES may lead you to a flatter, firmer midsection.
