How to Lose Belly Fat

Ah, belly fat.  I know it well.  At one point I had a 55 inch waist line.  That’s a lot of belly fat.  In fact that’s where I store most of my fat.  I had a big stomach.  I was shopping at big and tall shops.  I noticed my circulation wasn’t what it used to be.

But In only 11 weeks, I had managed to lose over 7 inches off my ‘belly fat’ and 45 pounds.  And it was actually pretty easy and quite tasty to do.

How did I do it?

2 words – LOW CARB.  I have tried other diets, at one point I was even a vegan.  But over time I gained a lot of weight and it wasn’t muscle.  Who knows why?  Sometimes it’s stress related, many doctors think that there’s a cortisol component, lack of exercise and / or excessive calories, or too much insulin over time and/or all the above.

The answer for my body and all that excessive belly fat is that I was simply eating WAY too many carbs.  Soft drinks, ice cream, juice, bread, pasta, pancakes, pastries, candy, cake, etc.  Practically all the processed food and most of the fast food is loaded with sugar.  And that crap is pretty much just empty calories.

So for the last several weeks, I completely eliminated these from my diet and I began to lose that belly fat FIRST.  Now that I am in the low carb ‘zone’, I just feel like I can’t lose it fast enough. I am seeing real progress.  But it took me years to put it on and thankfully it’s looking like just a few more months to take it off.  I am so excited to see the progress on the scale and the tape measure weekly.

That’s one of the things I really like about the low carb lifestyle – you lose weight fast, including belly fat.  By going low carb, you put your body into a natural body response called ketosis, which burns fat as your primary fuel instead of sugar.  And the pounds are flying off.  The momentum and the tide has begun to change in a better, healthier direction.

So before doing something crazy like gastric bypass or liposuction or becoming a crack addict, I just decided to reduce the carbs in my diet.  Going low carb has been the best solution for me.  And I would definitely go low carb before any elective surgical options.

And the proof is in the pudding, so to speak.  So you might want to peruse the rest of this site to learn more.  This site is a journal of my own low carb experience over several years.  It’s not that hard to do if you have the right plan and the right attitude, but more importantly the right foods.
