One of the most frustrating things about exercising is that you don't always get the results that you want right away, especially around your abdomen. Your stomach tends to store more stubborn fat that's really hard to get rid of with just exercise alone. Before you give up on your dreams of wearing a bikini in public, there are a few other things that you can add to your workout routine to help flatten your tummy.
Watch What You Eat
If you are working out every day without results, then it may be time to switch up your diet. Have you tried dieting before? Eating a diet that's low in carbs and high in protein is a great way to fight that stubborn stomach fat. If you feel like it is too much to cut out a lot of carbs, then try just switching to whole grains at first and see if you notice a difference. If you don't, then it may be time to buckle down and cut out more carbs, but give yourself a cheat day where you can eat carbs once a week so that you don't feel too deprived.
It used to be that the only surgical or medical procedure that you could do to get rid of stubborn fat was liposuction. Although liposuction is still one of the most popular weight loss procedures out there, it's not for everyone. Luckily, there's a procedure called CoolSculpting on the market. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that literally freezes the fat cells in your abdomen. Once the fat cells have been frozen, they will slough off of your body. A couple months later, you will excrete them through your urine.
Don't be embarrassed if you feel like your body needs a bit of a jumpstart in the weight loss area, especially regarding to the fat around your stomach. If you want to learn more, reach out to a physician today and ask them if they offer CoolSculpting.
