On Losing Belly Fat

Your body starts storing fat around your hips, thighs & essential organs(belly area). Once these places start to get hefty, your body then moves outwards towards your arms and feet. If you are at the point where you are storing lots of fat in your arms then when you burn calories, your body will take it from your arms rather than your belly fat. (This has something to do with protecting & warming your vital organs) This is why if you start an intense running program, the first place you will start to lose fat is in your arms and lower legs. Eventually, if you continue an intense running program, that weight will start to come off of shoulders and thighs. Finally, once all of the remote fat stores are depleted, your body will start using the fat around your vitals(belly).

Your body stores fat using a F-I-L-O algorithm. (First In Last Out). An analogy: If you were to stack 10 papers, in order to get the first paper off of the stack, you would have to remove the top 9 papers. In other words, if you want to get at the belly fat, you have to attack your whole body mass % as a whole. It is impossible to “Target” belly fat. If someone told you they did a bunch of crunches and they got a flat stomach, its because of the calories they burnt, not because their stomach got amazingly strong. Having a six pack is about low body fat, not super big stomach muscles.

Slow progress is still progress

IMAG1071 1024x579 Slow progress is still progress

 

Although I would really prefer my weight loss to go faster, but… meh.

anyway I just finished 3 days of juicing. My only comment is it is VERY CHALLENGING if you include workouts during this time

because I started on friday, did gym workout on saturday night, and badminton for 4 hours on sunday.

My body hurts like shit and I am so hungry and tired

and I think last night I got sick because I have so much phlegm in me right now and coughing like there’s no tommorrow

but I’m still alive so yeah.

I’ll see if I can post more info on the juicing stuff and my personal inputs on it on my next post

Here’s a nice blog post that I recently saw on losing a ton shit of weight. He even has progress pics!

JonGabrielNewTransformation 850x322 On Losing 220 Lbs

below are the top 7 things that he did:

1. I stopped dieting and started nourishing my body.

2. I healed my digestion.

3. I got a CPAP machine for my sleep apnea.

4. I started using mind-body practices to reduce stress.

5. I created a much more sustainable life.

6. I worked through some important emotional issues.

7. I detoxified my body.

I think the lesson here is that you need to be in tune with your body and harmonize your direction together with your mind. detoxify holistically and do it in an easy to maintain manner. and I guess the most important is just do it! start and just adjust as  you go along icon smile On Losing 220 Lbs
