At Cambiati Wellness Programs, we’ve noticed that there is a lot of searches that end up on our website about fast belly fat loss in Mexico, but we’re not big fans of quick fixes, since they rarely last! Then you end up yo-yo dieting and that slows down your metabolism over time.
There is so much more to consider when it comes to losing weight, particularly in a specific area like the stomach/belly area. Since it’s so challenging to spot train and lose fat in one specific part of the body, no matter how dedicated you are to the gym, you have to consider whole-body wellness while making some dietary and lifestyle changes to get your desired results. Here are some other pieces to consider:
Hormones tend to decline in both men and women with age. Lifestyle factors such as exercise, sleep, stress, supplements, drinking alcohol, and diet can also play important roles in improving levels of this important and delicate hormones.
In addition to hormone levels, it’s important to consider what type of diet you’re eating on a daily basis. Here at Cambiati Wellness, we have perfected the formula of creating a balanced plate that supports hormones and neurotransmitters in the brain. Clean eating or eating as close to the earth as possible (think one-ingredient foods versus processed, packaged creations), is not only good for your potential six-pack, but also your overall health. Protein, fiber and healthy fats in particular are extra important for helping keep you full longer.
3. Watch your sugar:
This warrants its own bullet point because it’s so important. We find that many of our clients are eating way more sugar than they realize. And studies point to the connection between sugar consumption and belly fat. Avoid sugar bombs in the form of drinks, dense desserts, and hidden in places like store-bought smoothies.
4. Reduce or avoid alcohol:
A lot of drinks, especially beer, can cause bloating and excess calories/sugar which lead to puffiness and overall weight gain. Choose a low-calorie or mocktail or water with a sprig of mint instead!
While spot training usually doesn’t work, exercising promotes longevity, bone health and the toning of your whole body. The more muscle you have, the more calories your body is able to burn at rest. At Cambiati Wellness Programs, we recommend HIIT workouts for our clients to burn the most amount of fat.
There are tons of research studies touting the connection between lack of sleep and weight gain. Prioritize sleep and aim for 7-9 hours per night. Make sure your sleep hygiene is in place, like ensuring your room is dark and cool enough, you avoid electronics 1-2 hours before bed, and don’t exercise late at night.
Remember, there is no magic pill or quick fix when it comes to losing weight. It takes hard work and dedication to make real progress. Don’t forget to keep track of your progress along the way and celebrate each milestone you reach! With a little patience and effort, you can achieve your belly fat-loss goals without resorting to costly options like heading to Mexico for liposuction or surgery!
