Methods To Fight Belly Fat – That DON’T WORK

Everyone who has belly fat would be more than happy to get rid of it. But sometimes, we let ourselves get a bit too eager to lose those extra pounds, and we can end up believing any fast, easy method will work.

There are countless miracle cures against belly fat on television and online. It would be nice if there were short cuts and instant results for getting nice and trim. But sadly, there is no such thing as a miracle cure for belly fat.

Any product you see that claims to produce instant results is either a border-line scam that will give you minimal results in contrast to the price you paid, or it will be a complete scam that does absolutely nothing. Be careful with your money. Remember, you want your waist line to get thinner, not your wallet.

One of the most common miracle cures for belly fat are companies that sell supposedly “healthy food” that tastes the same as normal (as in high calorie and high fat ) food. If something sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. Low list celebrities constantly go on television, promising that food will be delivered to your house, and simply eating it will help you lose weight. Rarely will they offer even the vaguest scientific explanation as to how this food actually works. They may as well tell you they sprinkled it with pixie dust, instead of salt.

You want your waist line to get thinner, not your wallet.

There IS such a thing as health foods. It’s called lean protein, and vegetables, and are usually part of diets that work. You can buy them at any grocery store, instead of from con artists.

A similar concept is when companies sell magic weight loss pills. Very few of these will give you any long-term results. Only take diet pills that are recommended by your doctor, not a paid actor. Even then, see how you feel after you take them. Anything that makes you feel shaky or jumpy is not good for your health.

Con artists have also tapped into the exercise racket, in addition to diet scams. Every few months you’ll see some new device on television, that claims to be the latest and greatest breakthrough in workout technology. With just a few minutes with this machine every day, you’ll see the pounds burning away in just a few weeks. If these machines work the way they claim to, then why are people coming up with new ones every other month? Many exercise machines work, but only if YOU work. This takes time and effort. Buying a different machine everytime you see one advertised isn’t the answer.

They truth is, there is no immediate way to lose fat around your middle. It’s the primary area that your body stores fat, especially as you get older. It will be the first area to get larger when you start to gain weight, and it will always be the last area to get thin again, when you get in shape. An entire change in lifestyle is the only sure fire way to get your belly the way you want. There is no magic diet or exercise that target the belly specifically, and let you cut corners.
