3 Belly Fat Tips for Fashionistas

If you hate salads, do this…

I really struggled to eat salads for a long time.

And to be honest, I still don’t eat salads.

I eat vegetables in literally every form – except salads.

There is just something about eating cold leaves that genuinely makes me feel sad haha.

If you’re like me – fear not.

Just eat your vegetables in other forms.

Personally, I enjoy a nice warm bowl of okro soup.

I love sauteed baby bok choy, sauteed baby kale, and sauteed collard greens.

I enjoy all of these vegetables several times a week.

The key is to sautee them on the lowest heat possible to preserve as much of the vitamin c content as you can.

I’m not fancy at all with my sautees either.

I just use some coconut aminos (you can use soy sauce if you prefer), any oil i have on hand (coconut and olive are staples), some onion powder (listen, i am NOT cutting onions Loolll).

Toss together and eat.

I have also been known to throw baby spinach and plant-based milk together in a blender and chugged the whole thing down.

I don’t recommend the blending thing.

Even i realize that’s a bit wild and extreme.

Love Nuts? Watch Your Portion Sizes

Even healthy foods can become problematic if we eat too much of them.

For example, nuts are a great source of healthy fats, but they are also high in calories and easy to overeat.

When it comes to portion sizes, it’s best to stick to what’s recommended on the nutrition label.

If you’re eating out, try to stick to the recommended portion size or split an entrée with a friend.

Use this hack to drink more water

It’s important to drink plenty of water while trying to burn fat.

Water is essential for a healthy metabolism and helps us feel full and energized.

It also flushes out toxins and waste from the body – which can build up during the fat-loss process.

The best way to drink water is to fill up a large, cup with a straw and get to sipping all day long.

I personally have a 20-ounce cup I take with me everywhere.

I get a headstart on my water consumption by drinking 20oz with my vitamins every morning.

Belly Fat Workout for Fashionistas Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Are there any specific diet plans that complement cardio exercises for belly fat reduction?

Yes, there are specific diet plans that can complement cardio exercises for belly fat reduction. In fact, diet and exercise go hand in hand when it comes to losing belly fat. The right combination of both is essential for achieving optimal results.

To reduce belly fat, it is important to focus on a diet that has fewer calories than you burn in the day, enough protein, and rich in fiber.

Some people do very well on a low carb, high fat, high protein diet. If you choose this route, make sure you still incorporate lots of fresh organic vegetables into your diet to get all the micronutrients your body needs to function properly.

Another diet that is effective in complementing cardio exercises for belly fat reduction is the Mediterranean Diet: This diet is rich in healthy fats, protein, and fiber. It includes foods like fish, whole grains, vegetables, and fruits. This diet plan is associated with reduced belly fat, as well as improved heart health.

Please note that I am using the word “diet” very loosely here. I personally (and professionally) do not believe in or support dieting. I support a health-first approach and most diets do a lot of harm to the female body.

If you think your metabolism is compromised, please talk to a doctor.

In summary, any diet that has fewer calories than you burn in a day, plus sufficient protein and fiber is useful for belly fat reduction.

Specific examples of such diets that can complement cardio exercises for belly fat reduction, are the Mediterranean Diet, and the low carb diet. Remember to consult with a healthcare professional or a registered Dietician to come up with a plan that is right for you.

How much water should I drink each day to aid in belly fat loss?

The standard accepted guideline is to drink at least 8 cups (64 ounces) of water per day for overall health.

It’s a good idea to optimize your health as much as possible – so test out drinking this amount of water.

If it works for you and your body feels great doing it, continue.

If not, adjust till you find the amount of water that feels best to your body.

Don’t be afraid to trust yourself on this.

The standard recommendation may or may not be right for you.

It is just a great starting point to experiment from.

For example, someone living in Arizona (where it is HOT in the summer) might need more water than someone living in Wisconsin or Michigan.

One thing to note though: drinking a ton of water (above and beyond what is reasonable) has not been shown to accelerate fat loss.

I’ve seen people try this and it is – quite frankly – dangerous.

The safe, effective way to reduce belly fat is to eat right, exercise, sleep, and say no to drama (aka reduce stress).

Overall, drinking enough water is important for overall health and can support weight loss efforts, but it is not a substitute for the methods mentioned above.

Can you combine cardio with other types of exercises to target belly fat more effectively?

Yes, it’s a wonderful idea to combine cardio with other types of exercises.

Specifically, you also want to be doing certain resistance and isometric exercises as well.

For example

1. Planks –

This is an isometric exercise that targets the core muscles, including the abs, obliques, and back muscles. Planks help you develop strength in your core. And massively increase the results you get out of your other exercises.

2. Crunches –

For those that don’t naturally have the “abs gene”, we actually have to do situps and crunches to develop those muscies.

When you hear someone say they got abs by cleaning up their diet alone, just know you are listening to someone that genetically doesn’t store a lot of fat on their belly like the rest of us.

3. Squats –

Surprised to see this on here? Dont be. Squats target the glutes, hamstrings, and quads, which are some of the biggest muscles in our bodies.

When these big muscles are strong and developed, they increase our metabolism. Which means we burn more calories just by existing.

Don’t sleep on squats even if your main goal is to get rid of excess belly fat.

4. Deadlifts –

Same logic as squats. This exercise targets the back muscles, glutes, and hamstrings. These are also massive muscles in the body.

Combine these kinds of exercises with cardio + correct eating and you’ll be on your way to your dream belly.

Can doing cardio exercises alone be enough to get rid of stubborn belly fat?

Stubborn belly fat is often associated with visceral fat, which is the fat that surrounds the organs in the abdominal area.

It is considered to be one of the most dangerous types of fat as it can increase the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and more.

While cardio exercises can help burn calories and reduce overall body fat, they are not specifically targeted towards visceral fat.

So, relying solely on cardio exercises may not be 100% effective in reducing stubborn belly fat.

To achieve significant results, a combination of cardio and strength training exercises, along with a healthy diet, is recommended.

Strength training exercises, such as squats and lunges can help build muscle mass and increase metabolism, leading to a higher rate of calorie burn even at rest. Many studies have shown that a combination of exercise and diet is more effective in reducing visceral fat than exercise alone.

Also, a healthy diet that is rich in protein, fiber, and healthy fats, and low in processed and sugary foods, can also aid in reducing belly fat. Consuming fewer calories than the body needs can create a calorie deficit, leading to weight loss and a reduction in belly fat.

To summarize, while cardio exercises are great for burning calories, losing weight, overall fitness and health, they may not be enough to get rid of stubborn belly fat.

A combination of cardio, strength training, and a healthy diet is recommended to achieve significant results in reducing belly fat.

What are the most effective cardio exercises for losing belly fat?

When it comes to losing belly fat through cardio exercises, there are a few exercises that are particularly effective.

These exercises help to increase the heart rate, burn calories, and reduce overall body fat, including belly fat.

1. Jumping Jacks (or Step Jacks):

Doing jumping jacks or step jacks is a great way to increase cardiovascular endurance and burn calories. The step jack is a low impact modification which is easier on the knees.

These exercises can be done anywhere, making them one of the most accessible cardio exercises. Incorporating jumping jacks or step jacks into an overall workout of about 30 minutes a day, five days a week, can help to reduce belly fat and body fat overall.

2. High Knees:

High Knees is another great cardio exercise that can be done indoors or outdoors. It also has a low-impact modification which you will typically see in my workouts.

High Knees are a little easier on the joints and can help to burn a significant amount of calories. Like jumping jacks, high knees – when incorporated into a well designed 30 minute workout, five days a week, can help to reduce belly fat and body fat too.

3. Squat Jacks:

Squat Jacks is a form of cardio exercise that does double duty. It not only helps burn calories in the moment, but also helps strengthen the leg muscles so the muscles there continue to burn calories when you rest.

This type of exercise can help to burn calories, increase cardiovascular endurance, strengthen muscle, and build overall endurance, making it a powerhouse exercise to add into your rouine.

These are just 3 easy to remember, solid exercises that are extremely effective for reaching your goal of burning belly fat.

There are many other exercises that are also effective and you will see them featured in lots of my workouts.

Remember that with exercise, variety is also important. So spice up your routine with jumping jacks, high knees, and squat jacks – but don’t get stuck in a rut with them.

A few things to note:

  • Whenever there are 2 exercises shown side by side, one is a lower impact modification. Always go with the lower impact version if you are a beginner or have not exercised in a long time.
  • If I show an exercise that you do one leg (or arm) at a time, do the leg (or arm) shown for 15 seconds. Then do your other leg (or arm) for the remaining 15 seconds.

It’s easier for me to show you how to do it with just one arm or leg in this post. But if you’re doing my full-length follow along Premium workout videos, I always show both sides of every exercise.
