A lot of people have been looking into healthier alternatives to losing the tummy. Many of us are now realizing how important it is to consume less and move a whole lot more.
One of the biggest trends in the world of vanity fitness is having nice ripped six pack abs, and people are willing to do absurd and often mundane things to achieve it. Interest soon diminishes and the result is a reversion back to the old self.
Before you feel you have tried everything, I suggest fasting. It's something that I preach about always, and there are many way that it can be done. I personally have long mornings and need long sustainable amounts of energy without relying heavily on consumption of food. I not only set a eating window for myself, but I also structure my eating based on the low carbohydrate fast that activates Ketogenesis. The principles behind it makes your body eat away at unwanted fat so it can be used as energy. This gives a huge advantage when I have goals of staying lean year round, and is a practice already used by many elite endurance athletes who need long sustainable energy during competition.
With Ketogenesis and Ketogenic style dieting, it is a simple principle of reducing carbohydrates. BUT WAIT THAT'S NOT ALL! The thought of reducing your carbohydrates may seem cliche, and it is unhealthy if done improperly, however with the ketogenic diet, you actually replace the calories lost from carb reduction with additional consumption of proteins and fats in order to replenish the lost calories. The trade off should be 1:1 calorie wise. For every one gram carb taken away, replace with with either 1 gram of protein or about .4g of fats or you can also do a trade off with a combination of both.
The Ketogenic diet refers to a way of eating that promotes the absorption of ketones for energy. Typically, when we eat foods high in carbohydrates, two things happen :
Reducing your carbohydrate intake can force your body to use your reserve. When this happens we start to produce ketones, a kick starter for the process of ketosis where usable energy derive from the breakdown of our own body fat.
Our bodies are extremely adaptive to the things we put in it, and with the principles of a ketogenic diet our bodies will begin to break down body fat into a new primary source of energy.
Some benefits in taking on a ketogenic diet may include:
