Doing cardio for maximum calorie burn
Now that you have the waist slimmer exercises, it’s time to add cardio.
Why do I need cardio?
Cardio is the ultimate workout to burn as much calorie as possible.
By just doing targeted waist exercises alone, it won’t produce results as good as if you combine it with a cardio session.
Remember that it’s not possible to spot reduce. So if you want to target a certain area of your body, you have to combine targeted workouts with cardio.
Which cardio workout should I do?
That completely depends on what type of cardio you enjoy doing the most. For example, some persons enjoy running, jogging, biking or swimming.
The point is, you should choose a cardio activity that you’re most comfortable with and do it for at least 10 minutes after completing this waist workout routine.
If you’re confused about which type of cardio you should do, then go for a run.
It’s one of the best cardio workouts and very easy to do. You can run laps around your yard, neighborhood or just run on a treadmill at the gym.
Note: When you complete the waist slimmer exercises make sure to rest for 5 minutes and then do cardio for 10 minutes.
Also make sure that you’re fully hydrated as it will help to power you through the session.
How many times a week should I workout?
Four times a week is ideal and use the other days for resting. You can do it alternately, for example, Monday would be workout day and Tuesday can be used for resting then you start again Wednesday and so on.
Just find a pattern that works best for you, but make sure that you workout at least 4 times a week for maximum results.
Waist slimmer hacks to follow
Eat a super breakfast
For any fat loss plan to work, it’s critical to start your day with a healthy and balanced breakfast to maximize your results.
When you eat a proper breakfast it will boost your metabolism and allow you to burn way more calories throughout the day.
And of course, you will be fuller for longer and lower your tendency to snack throughout the morning and afternoon, which may result in a higher calorie intake than you need.
Your breakfast should consists of balanced portions of the whole grains, protein and healthy fats.
It might sound a bit overwhelming, but it’s quite simple if you break it down. Here’s a sample diet you can follow and use for other food ideas.
Breakfast: You can eat 2 tablespoons of peanut butter with 2 slices of toasted wheat bread and 1 banana.
Snack: 4 sticks of fresh celery dipped in cotton cheese.
Lunch: Leftover spicy chicken with pasta and a salad.
Snack: Low fat Greek yogurt
Dinner: 1 medium-size salmon with 3 cups of broccoli.
Go smaller but more frequently
It’s very easy to starve yourself when trying to lose body fat but that isn’t sustainable and will only negatively affect your health.
What you should do instead is eat more frequently, but just in smaller portions throughout the day.
Bear in mind, this doesn’t mean you should snack on anything that comes your way.
You have to choose healthy options, especially if you want to get a smaller waist much quicker.
By eating more frequently, it prevents you from becoming too hungry and will keep stimulating your metabolism which will increase calorie burn.
So instead of eating 3 large meals for the day, eat 5 to 6 small meals to keep you satiated.
Pay attention to healthy fats
If you want to speed up the fat burning process, make sure to add healthy fats to your diet.
They work extremely well for preventing the accumulation of belly fat. The scientific term(1) is monounsaturated fats (MUFAs) and they’re mostly found in avocados, coconut oil, olive oil, seeds, nuts, dark chocolate and soybeans.
On the flip side, the type of fats you want to stay away from is trans fat. This is found in cookies, margarine or anything made with partially hydrogenated oils.
You would be surprised of how effective it is at increasing abdominal fat. So look out for it on food labels.
