A Doctor shares how to lose belly fat 'fast' with these tips.

Dr. Michael Mosley, a rising British health guru, has revealed some time-saving health tips that promise to reduce the "stubborn" visceral fat found around your stomach.

Dr. Mosley, has become renowned for his quick and easy solutions for helping people achieve their weight loss goals and feel confident in their own skin. Laying out diets that combine a healthy diet, and an intermittent fasting plan, his incredible results have made him a popular fat loss expert in the UK.

According to Dr. Mosley, belly fat, also known as visceral stomach fat, can affect anyone at any age. It is one of the most common complaints that people have with themselves, and belly fat frequently becomes the focal point of workout plans for that very reason. People hate belly fat.

The nutrition expert told BodyRock: "You need to eat smart, fast smart, and train smart." To lose belly fat, you must first understand what it is. And, in order to understand belly fat, you must first understand the fundamentals of how insulin works.

Understanding Belly Fat by understanding Insulin.

"In order to keep blood sugar stable after a meal, your body produces insulin." Insulin opens glucose ports on your cell walls, allowing sugar to pass through – for use in muscle development and storage in fat.

“In your fat, insulin also curbs the release of fatty acids – a source of energy – into your system. However, as we age, cell-wall insulin receptors become less sensitive.”

“As a result, even after a meal, our blood is full of glucose and fatty acids. This is a toxic brew, driving an array of bad outcomes, including a rapidly-expanding belly fat.”

A three-pronged attack on Belly Fat. 

Dr Mosley recommends “a three-pronged attack on belly fat” to “lose it fast”. The reason for this being “To make a serious impact on your belly fat, cutting out sugar-spikes is key.”

Avoid “Diet” food marketing and labels.

“A surprising number of ‘diet’ snacks and drinks are high in sugar, and are marketed as diet foods because they happen to be low in fat. This is supported by numerous studies. When people cut carbs, their appetite goes down and they lose weight.

Low carb lifestyle for weight loss

“So, limit your intake of any food or drink containing more than five percent sugar to no more than twice a week. This includes sweet fruits like mango and pineapple, and sugary smoothies and juices.” 

“Likewise, replace processed carbs like white bread, chips and pasta with slow-release energy sources, such as brown rice or quinoa. Two things will surprise you: the amount of sugar you were consuming unawares, and the speed at which your belly fat will begin to tame itself.” Following a low-carb lifestyle is something that you can work on, eliminating excess sugars gradually.

Try Intermittent Fasting. 

Try Intermittent Fasting.

A recent study demonstrated that fasting is one of the most efficient ways of rapidly losing weight. Shifting the focus off of what you can eat to when you eat, has helped thousands of women take control of their diets in a much more sustainable way. The many benefits of intermittent fasting for women can be found here

Dr Mosley encourages people to try out his preferred method of intermittent fasting. He said: “The idea that fasting ‘slows your metabolism’ is a myth. Under conditions of marked energy deficit – 800 calories per day or less – not only do you simply lose weight by eating fewer calories, but your body responds to the stress of fasting by enhancing hormone function to facilitate weight loss and burn fat for energy. Fasting optimizes your entire system for rapid weight loss. 

Although the Fasting Plan does not require any food restrictions (you can eat whatever food you want), combining fasting with a low-carb lifestyle will significantly increase the rate of fat loss, and deliver the fastest possible results. 

Get 10-15 minutes of this type of exercise per day.

Dr Mosley also recommended undertaking regular exercise, saying: “Exercise is key for various reasons. It is amongst the best things you can do for a long and healthy life.”

“While exercise alone will not help you lose the stubborn fat from round your middle, it can be crucial for helping reduce the risk of re-gaining fats, as well as lowering blood sugar levels and improving insulin sensitivity. How best to achieve this though? Research has shown the extraordinary impact that ultra-short bursts of HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) can have. All in just a few minutes.”

It might shock you to learn that recent studies have proven that just 10-15 minutes of exercise that combine HIIT with Strength Training, if done consistently, is enough to help people get into the best shape of their lives in just a matter of a few months. If it’s been years since you have purposefully exercised, our Beginner Bootcamp combines the types of training prescribed by Dr Mosley, and it has been specifically designed for Beginners - which means the program is achievable for you. The exercises will challenge you, but won’t overwhelm. Creating a program for beginners has allowed us to help over 250k people start exercising again, something that we feel very proud of. 

Dr Mosley concludes: “So, conventional diet and training regimes don’t help you to lose belly fat. And let’s face it: surrounded by junk food, dosed with snacks and working in sedentary jobs, we live in an environment that piles it on.

“And yet more and more people are discovering that with the right lifestyle changes, they can burn it off. And most amazing? It’s not as hard as you think.”

The bottom line.

An Intermittent fasting plan combined with a low-carb lifestyle is one of the most efficient ways to make a major body transformation and reduce belly fat fast. Supporting your diet with just 10-15 minutes of daily exercise composed of HIIT and Strength Training is a full belly fat attack plan that can help you significantly reduce your visceral fat in time for summer.
