For most women having tummy fat can lower your self-esteem. In this video Georgina Burnett shows you various techniques to reduce and get rid of tummy fat. Not only are stomach exercises important, but your diet will heavily influence the amount of tummy fat you produce. Not only will getting rid of tummy fat make you look better physically, but it will also increase your confidence.
Today I'm going to be giving you some tips with exercises to help you with your fitness. In this video I'm going to tell you how to get rid of tummy fat. It's really important to point out that you can't specify which area you lose fat from.
So what you need to is try to aim to lose as much excess fat as you can. The only way to lose fat is to eat less calories than your burning. Make sure that you don't for a quick fix diet which in the long run may actually lead to weight gain, but instead eat little or nothing which helps to raise your metabolism which means you will be burning fat all through the day.
Drinking plenty of water is also important. 2 litres at least a day and certainly more if your exercising. Your diet should be a healthy mix of carbohydrates, protein, good fat, plenty of vegetables and a moderate amount of fruit.
When it comes to toning your tummy there is plenty you can do. One of the first things that is really important is improving your posture. When you slouch what happens is your stomach tends to come out and this is the kind of form that it starts to take on.
So you can either really work on holding your shoulders back and holding your stomach in or you can actually purchase a posture corrector like this. You basically put it on a little bit like a rock sack with both the arms going on your shoulders. Then around the waist you have a tie which keeps it in place.
This should then help your posture and remind you to hold your shoulders back. There are plenty of exercises for toning your stomach which I will show you in a moment, but one thing you can do throughout the day is to really be conscious of those stomach muscles. So, tensing the stomach muscles where ever you are, whether your standing, sitting or walking along is going to make a big difference and is going to tone them gradually.
To exercise the stomach area start on your back with your knees bent. You want to lift up so that you can feel the stomach muscles starting to engage and then lift your legs up. You can either put your arms forward or behind your head, but if your putting them behind your head make sure your not pushing your head forward.
You want to bring your knees in and bring your chest up to the knees. Make sure it's a steady movement and you keep breathing all the way through. To turn the sides of your stomach here are the obliques.
Again, start on your back. Lift your legs up. Bring your arms to the back of your head.
Stretch one leg out and then tilt so that your touching the other one. Now one of the other areas that a lot of people like to tone is the lower stomach area. So again start on your back.
Have your legs stretched out in front of you and then lift with your bottom. Now you don't want to be pressing down with your hands. So have your palms facing upward and lift your feet.
It's really important that when you have been exercising your stomach muscles that you stretch them at the end. There's a very simple stretch you just lie on your front put your hands on either side of your shoulders and lift up. And that's how to get rid of tummy fat.
