In this article, we speak about the top five most common mistakes that you may be doing while you try to lose your belly fat.
#1 Not eating
The number 1, most common mistake for losing stomach fat is not eating. A lot of people think that they should stop eating if they need to lose fat.
That does not work because you will end up over-eating and bingeing, it is very unhealthy, you will not have any energy to work out and it will definitely have bad effects on your body.
#2 Eating too much
You should certainly have your meal after your workout, get your nutrients, your protein, your carbs and your healthy fat but do not continue eating throughout the evening and late at night. You might feel hungry but your body does not need it. So, when you start a workout program and a strict nutritional routine you have to give time to your body to adapt to the new diet and workout plan.
Avoid over-eating even if you have the temptation especially at night-time. Just eat what you have to eat, your nutrients, your six meals per day. Stick to the plan and your body will get acclimated to this eating regime.
#3 Not sticking to the plan
You will not see any visible results with your belly fat-loss efforts until your hit your week 3 and 4. At that time, you are going to feel it, you will feel more energy, you will feel more excited for working out. However, for all that to happen, you need consistency which is your key to your stomach fat-loss endeavor.
You need consistency with your workout program as you have to go to the gym every day and take only one day off. Train different muscle groups every day and also include hard cardio exercise. Keep on that schedule, stick to the plan as regularity with your exercise is vital. People who have successfully lost their belly fat did not just workout a few days a week but instead, they did it all the time.
If you want to take a day off, just take it from the gym but not from your healthy eating and living.
#4 Doing advanced workouts
Another reason why people fail to lose they belly fat is that they do advanced workouts far too soon. This is a very common situation in these big corporate gyms and the personal trainers they hire. They may execute the exercises very well but they are not for the beginner’s level. They do these compound exercises and tough workouts but they do not get the full benefit of the workout.
One problem you might come across if you do these tough workouts is that you will hate working out even before you get into it. So, you need to focus on exercises that are suitable for beginners. Keep it basic and avoid the complex exercises.
#5 Not setting a goal
Setting a goal is the most important thing when starting your belly fat-loss journey. Think about that, without setting goals, what are you working towards? Workouts might become monotonous, like you are dragging yourself to the gym. You have to set a fat-loss goal so that you have something to work for, to achieve, to motivate yourself to and to be excited for.
