Here we have the second part of tips to lose gut, with more tips to get your flat belly. See the first part.
Eat Eggs For Breakfast
The yolks contain nutrients, such as healthy fats and lecithin, that enhance muscle growth, promote fat loss and enhance mental function. The cholesterol found in eggs helps to synthesize testosterone, which aids fat-burning indirectly by promoting gains in lean muscle. The fat in yolks also provides much-needed energy to your muscle cells and typically isn’t stored as bodyfat. Consuming eggs for breakfast reduced hunger and food intake for more than 24 hours, compared to a breakfast containing bagels. Two or three whole eggs plus 2-3 egg whites for breakfast should suffice.
Take A Walk After Dinner
Taking a nice, leisurely walk burns additional calories, which is helpful after a substantial dinner, especially if you “accidentally” ate too much. Even if it’s just a 20-minute stroll, a walk does you good – but try to keep a decent pace.
Keep Your Rest Periods Short
Short rest periods maximize calorie burn. 30 seconds between sets (this rest period burns the most calories during the workout), but because you’re training relatively heavy, feel free to bump that up to about one minute. To ensure muscle recovery with less rest, alternate bodyparts every other exercise.
For example, if you’re training chest and back with three exercises each, do a chest exercise, then a back move, then return to chest, and so on. If you’re doing a modified full-body workout, go from chest to back to shoulders to legs, then return to chest. While one bodypart is being trained, the others get a chance to recover.
Have A Cup Or Two Of Coffee In The Morning
Caffeine is found in most fat-burning supplements since it inhibits the storage of bodyfat and burns extra fat during exercise. Drink a large cup of coffee before cardio, but make sure it’s black, don’t add sugar or cream because the extra calories only impede your fat-burning efforts. Better yet, take 200-300 mg of a caffeine supplement. Caffeine and carnitine taken before a hard train increased fat-burning and endurance.
Get At Least 7-8 Hours Of Sleep
Missing out on sleep can mean missing out on muscle repair that occurs when your body is at rest. Messing with the repair process means less muscle and, subsequently, a slower metabolism. If your alarm is set to go off at 7 a.m., be in bed by midnight.
