Welcome to The Lipo Lounge weekly tip. This week we look at how long it takes to lose unwanted belly fat. Harvard Medical School estimates approximately 90 percent of body fat (subcutaneous fat) is just below the skin in most people. If your goal is to lose unwanted belly fat, there is no quick & easy way. Targeting belly fat may not be the best plan. You need to work on losing overall body fat through diet & exercise. How long does it take to burn fat? You have to burn 3,500 calories to lose 1 pound of fat. To lose 1 pound of fat a week, you need to eliminate 500 calories every day. If successful, you could lose 4 pound in 1 month. Some ways to cut calories from your diet include: drinking water instead of soda and juice, cutting down on alcohol, avoiding high calorie foods & sugar, eating more fruits & vegetable, and reducing your portion size. Increasing your physical activity will also help you burn more calories. In addition to regular exercise you can burn calories by ... taking the stairs, biking or walking rather than driving, taking a walk after meals and getting up from your desk every 20 minutes and move or stretch for a minute. By eating the right amount of real wholesome foods and moving everyday, you can keep unwanted fat & belly fat under control. And remember, the best way to get motivated is to see the changes you can achieve... and nothing does that better than the safe, non-surgical, painless, body sculpting & contouring procedures and body transforming classes The Lipo Lounge offers.
