It's not a secret in this day and age that the vast majority of people have extra belly fat on their body.
The first thing that most people think of is that their extra abdominal fat is simply ugly, is covering up their abdominals from showing, and makes them self conscious about their body.
However, what most people do not realize is that excess belly fat in particular, is not only unsightly, but is also dangerous and a serious risk factor to your health. Scientific research has clearly demonstrated that although it is unhealthy in general to have excess body fat throughout your entire body, it is also more dangerous in particular to have excess belly fat.
There are 2 varieties of fat that you have in your abdominal region. The first type that covers up your abdominals from being visible is called subcutaneous fat and lies directly beneath the skin and on top of the ab muscles.
The 2nd type of fat that you have in your abdominal region is called visceral fat, and that lies deeper in the abdomen beneath your muscle and surrounding your organs. Visceral fat also plays a role in giving some men that "beer belly" appearance where their belly protrudes excessively but at the same time, also feels kind of hard if you push on it.
Both subcutaneous fat and visceral fat in the abdominal region are serious health risk factors, but science has shown that having excessive visceral fat is even more dangerous than subcutaneous fat. Both types of body fat greatly increase the risk your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, sleep apnea, various forms of cancer, and other degenerative diseases.
Part of the reason visceral fat is particularly dangerous is that it apparently releases more inflammatory molecules into your system on a daily basis.
If you care about the quality of your life and your loved ones (as well as your appearance), reducing your belly fat should be one of your TOP priorities regarding your fitness! There is just no way around it. Besides, a side effect of finally getting rid of all of that excessive ugly belly fat is that your stomach will flatten out, and if you lose enough belly fat, you will finally be able to uncover those elusive sexy six pack abs that everyone wants.
So what gets rid of extra belly fat? Is there actually a REAL solution beyond all of the hype and gimmicks that you see in all of the infomercial ads and on commercials for "miracle" fat loss products?
The first thing you must understand is that there is absolutely NO quick fix solution. There are no pills of any sort that will help you get rid of your belly fat faster. Also, none of the gimmicky ab rollers, rockers, or belts will help get rid of stomach fat either. You can not spot reduce your belly fat by using any of these worthless gadgets. It simply does not work that way.
The ONLY solution to consistently lose your stomach fat and keep it off for good is to combine a quality nutritious diet full of unprocessed natural foods with a properly designed strategic workout program that stimulates the necessary hormonal and metabolic response within your body. Both your dietary intake as well as your exercise program are important if you are to actually get this right.
I've actually even seen a particular study that divided thousands of participants into a diet-only group and an workout & diet combined group. While both groups in this study made good progress, the diet-only group lost significantly LESS stomach fat than the diet & workout combined group.
Now the important thing to realize is that just any old workout program will not necessarily do the trick. The majority of people that attempt getting into a good exercise routine are NOT working out effectively enough to really stimulate the loss of stubborn belly fat. I see this everyday at the gym.
Most people will do your typical boring ineffective cardio routines, throw in a little outdated body-part style weight lifting, and pump away with some crunches, situps, and side bends, and think that they are doing something useful for reducing their stomach fat. Then they become frustrated after weeks or months of no results and wonder where they went wrong.
Well, the good news is that I have spent over a decade researching this topic, analyzing the science, and applying it "in the trenches" with myself as well as thousands of my clients from all over the world to see what works to really stimulate belly fat loss.
The entire solution... all of the nutritional strategies, as well as training sequences, exercise combinations, and more have all been compiled in my Truth About 6-Pack Abs Program.
Keep in mind that the point of this whole program is NOT ab exercises (that is only a very small portion of it). The main point of this program is showing you the absolute most effective strategies for losing your stubborn belly fat, so you can get rid of that dangerous health risk, as well as flatten and define your midsection.
The only reason most people fail in their fitness endeavors is that they have good intentions at first to adopt a new lifestyle, yet after a few weeks, they abandon their good intentions and slip right back into their old bad habits that gave them the excess body fat in the first place.
I want to help you succeed in finally getting rid of that extra stomach fat that is not only UGLY, but also DANGEROUS.
Do not waste another day allowing that nasty abdominal fat to kill your confidence as well as contribute to your risk for MAJOR diseases.
