Every new year people make resolutions to get rid of belly fat. These usually involve things like “I want to lose a lot of belly fat” or “I want to eat healthy food to flat my stomach.” Wanting to be as healthy as possible is admirable.
The truth is that there are very few people who don’t need to improve their health in some way. At the same time, it is easy to get out track when it comes to health resolutions. Unfortunately, most people lose their motivation by the end of March, because they try to take on too much too quickly
So how do you make the commitment to healthy diet and fat loss without going overboard? There are two schools of thought here. The first says to go slowly and make small goals for yourself.
The other school of thought says to think big and long term and then plan out your route. Both schools are good approaches to getting healthy and realizing your weight loss resolutions.
What’s more, when you think big and long term, you can easily break that down into several smaller goals that you can reach consecutively. Here are a few ways.
If you want to lose fat pounds by the end of this year, that breaks down to committing to lose 4 pounds per month, or a pound per week. That then breaks down to just a little more than a pound per week.
That’s certainly attainable! Simply cutting the junk food out of your diet is enough to help you get there. Obviously this doesn’t mean that cutting out the junk food by itself will help you reach your fat loss goal, but it can help you gather steam in the beginning while you learn ways to keep your belly fat off as you drop pounds each week.
If you are concerned about animal rights and would like to go the vegan route, don’t try to do this all at once.
Your health will hurt and the withdrawals you face will make your transition a lot harder to take and you will be less likely to stick to it in the long run. Instead, start by cutting out one type of meat. And then, after a couple of weeks, cut out another type of meat.
Once you’ve eliminated all of the major meat groups from your diet, you can work on cutting out dairy. After you’ve worked through a dairy dependence, you can start working on cutting out all of the smaller things that have animal based ingredients (jello, for example, contains animal byproducts).
Doing this will also allow you to learn just what to look for on ingredients labels over time (which helps you remember things) and find new foods to make up for the old cravings
There are lots of ways to lose belly fat over the course of one year. Personal resolutions are a great way to find motivation in the beginning.
Small goals to lose belly fat over the course of one year is how you will stay focus and motivated to past the usual drop time you will lose belly fat.
