Can bike riding help me lose stubborn belly fat?
I'm interested in getting my stomach tighter for Summer and I plan on getting myself a bike to ride around in, in my neighborhood. Do you think bike riding and drinking lots of water will help tighten up my ab area?
The short answer is YES. riding a bike is an excellent way to get rid of that pot belly. All the stomach/core excercises that have been recommended will strengthen and tone your stomach, but it will still have a layer of fat covering it unless you do long sessions of cardiovascular exercise in the 'fat burning' zone.
exercise 20 to 30 minutes a day with your heart rate a 70 to 80% of maximum - max heart rate is generally 220 minus your age. Burn more calories than you take in. These are the ONLY non-medical methods for losing weight.
Drinking water will do nothing to help you lose weight unless you seriously curtail all other drinks that contain calories and drink water instead.
the only way to permently remove these fat cells from a certain place, is one of the 4 different methods of the lipotherapies (dissolving fat by injections, liposuction, laser, ,,or more than the brevious compounds) ,
there are many local applied cream and patches which will help to raise the metabolisim of the fat in this area,, but the cells will be their.
ahhhhh ,, water in a normal way is good generally,, when u drink a lot, u will pee a lot,, so ,,, drink what ur body need, actually,A daily intake of 1-2 liters of water is required for the normal physiological functioning of the human body, depending on ambient weather conditions and diet (especially salt intake) ,, Water intoxication (also known as hyperhydration or water poisoning) is a potentially fatal disturbance in brain function that results when the normal balance of electrolytes in the body is pushed outside of safe limits by a very rapid intake of water.It is possible to overhydrate, which sometimes happens with athletes who consume too much water, thereby diluting the concentration of salts in the body.
First of all, doing thousands of crunches, situps, planks, or any other kind of killer abdominal workout, just isn’t going to do the job. While it will strengthen your core muscles, and that’s a really good thing, it’s not going to get rid of that layer of fat on top of those amazing looking abs. All the abdominal exercises in the world won’t get rid of that.
When you get right down to it, the only way to get rid of fat is to consume less calories than you expend. The calorie is a measure of energy, and different kinds of food can be converted into a certain number of calories for your body’s energy needs. Excess calories are stored as fat. When you have a deficit, your body uses those fat stores for its energy needs.
What you need to do is to have a small deficit for many days.
It takes about 3500 calories to equal one pound of fat. Many people consider a healthy weight loss amount to be around 1 pound a week. Put that together and you need about a 500 calorie deficit each day. This, in and of itself, is not just how to lose stomach fat, it is how to lose all fat. It turns out that you will lose it evenly throughout your body, not just in one area.
The next thing to watch is what you eat. Foods high in sugar, including alcoholic beverages, get converted to energy very quickly. They also get converted into fat very quickly if you are not using the sugar. The sugars found in fruits and vegetables burn slower than the sugars in candy and soda, so they don’t pack on the pounds as fast. Remember that the next time you feel like reaching for a candy bar or soda.
Of course, exercise also has many positive benefits. In addition to helping you feel better and increasing your cardiovascular health, exercise burns calories, which can help contribute to weight loss. Some people love to walk, others ride a bicycle, and still others swim or jog. The type of exercise is not really important, it’s the fact that you get out there and do something for at least 30 minutes, 4 times per week.
Resistance training, or weight training, is also a great form of exercise in addition to one of the more aerobic forms listed above. Weight training has the added benefit of keeping your metabolic rate elevated while your muscles do their repairs from your workout. Not to mention the fact that you can shape up other parts of your body to complement the amazing 6 pack you are going to have.
When you get right down to it, the right combination of diet and exercise is how to get rid of stomach fat, or any other kind of fat.
