The Secret to Flat Sexy Abs

How to Burn Belly Fat and get a Flat Tummy

"I want to get rid of the belly fat What exercise can I do that will help?"

This is by far the most frequently asked question I receive on a daily basis. After you read this article you will have the formula for success.

However, due to the fact that many women have difficulty letting go of what they think works - only a small percentage of you will actually take what I have to share and apply it. These are the women who will be proud to wear anything that respectfully displays their beautiful, flat tummy.

Sure! Including Ab exercises as part of your routine is beneficial for strength purposes, but the truth is - no amount of "ab exercises" will make the fat on your belly disappear and help you achieve flat, sexy abs.

Doing hundreds of crunches a day will do nothing to flatten your tummy. It is my hope that I will help you bust through the "Spot Reduction Myth" once and for all.

As far as Fat Loss and “exercise” goes - you must know that you need to use a total body approach – using resistance training to work your upper body, lower body and core with exercises that incorporate many muscles at once.

This is the ONLY way to exercise that will significantly boost your metabolism so your body begins to burn more fat and calories which will reveal the Lean Toned look you are after.

Some of the best "ab exercises" actually use your whole body! (work your abs, use more muscles, increase your metabolism....that's the way to go!) See a couple of my favorite "crunch free" exercises below!

The "Abs" that you want to work through crunches are you little in return as far as calorie burn. You can Burn double or even triple the amount of calories by doing full body resistance training exercises.

Fat loss is a total body process
As you burn more calories than you take in, you release more fat, you
cannot choose where this fat comes from.

In order to lose fat, you must focus on three core principles. You need the right nutrition, the right workout, and the right amount of time to lose the belly fat and reclaim a fit and beautiful body.

1. Eat Right - Supportive nutrition is extremely important, not only to keep you energized, but to provide your boys with quality nutrients to create a healthy metabolism and burn more fat. You CANNOT achieve great abs if you are putting junk into your body - no matter how great your workout program is.

2. Short Burst Exercise - A progressively challenging, full body resistance training program provides your body with the ability to create a supercharged metabolism and a lean, fit, toned body. Fit Yummy Mummy provides workouts designed to increase lean muscle and burn fat all in less than 90 minutes per week.

3. Rest - Sufficient rest and recovery is necessary to allow time for body to improve, maintain and repair your muscles, so you increase your metabolism and burn more fat. Doing more exercise will hinder your results.

When I first asked you about it, you gave me the freedom to "tweak " the plan depending on the results I wanted. That was freeing. however, I got to thinking - Darn it - I want the best results possible!! Why go through all the effort and then sabotage myself! I want to be the fittest and yummiest possible! So I may need to reread all these encouraging words in the future, but I know this piece of the puzzle is where it needs to be going!" Angela
