Let me tell you in advance that this will be free of gimmicks, tricks, gadgets, or any other “too good to be true” nonsense. I’m sick and tired of people being ripped off by shade marketers who claim to have found the one secret way to get flat abs, usually without any real effort and with hardly any time investment. I want you to know the truth about what it takes to get rid of belly fat and finally have the flat abs you’ve always wanted.
The Truth About Losing belly fat
While I’m the sort of man who likes things to be easy and to happen fast, I have to say that there is no easy way to lose belly fat, at least if your definition of easy is to cover your abs with some electric gadget and pray for the fat to melt away. Losing stomach fat requires work and it requires dedication and time. There is no escaping it.
The good news is that the picture that marketers of shady abs gadget paint (I won’t name brands, you know who you are) is often black and white. On one hand they show regular abs exercises as hard, back breaking, and extremely slow at giving results. On the other, they show how easy and fast their product can get you flat abs, often using simulation trick photography and fitness models who have never used their products before they were hired to act in the infomercial.
There is a middle ground between these two black and white false scenarios. It is here that the fastest way to lose belly fat and get flat abs lies. I’m going to explain to you what you need to do to find this way and to finally eliminate the misinformation from your life and flatten your tummy.
The first thing you have to do to get flat abs is to make sure your nutrition is perfect. There is no more time for any games. You have to make sure that you’re eating good food that helps your metabolism run high and avoiding bad food that makes you hungrier and fatter.
In his excellent program, the 7 Day Belly Blast Diet, Josh Bezoni, the well known nutritionist, talks about how much of the food we eat today is full of “obesity addictives”, substances that make us crave more and more food and actually tamper with our brains ability to register that we’re not hungry anymore.
Some of these chemicals are actually placed in our food on purpose to make our food not just delicious but irresistible so that we always crave more and more of it. The hungrier we are, the more money food companies can make. Is it any wonder that so many of us are fat today and that, as a society, we’re fatter than we’ve ever been?
Without going into specifics (Josh Beznoni’s program is over 200 pages long), suffice it to say that one easy way to avoid these addictive materials is to eat food that is as close as possible to its natural state. Avoid pre-made dishes and buy produce and fresh food instead. Go for organic food whenever possible and read the labels of the food you do buy to avoid eating too many chemicals.
If you eat right and follow the other guidelines in this article, you can see great results within just a few short weeks. These results will be real, not imaginary like some infomercial states.

Working out the right way
If you want to lose belly fat fast you have to train in the right way. You also need to train hard. There’s no escaping it and I don’t care what the latest infomercial says. To lose belly fat requires that you get yourself in shape and I’m not just talking about your abs. Your entire body needs to be in shape.
You may not care about the rest of your body right now, but you should. The reason is simple: the more muscle tissue you have anywhere on your body, the more calories and fat your body burns and the faster it does so. So, if you have more muscular legs, you also lose belly fat. This may seem crazy, but it works.
In fact, in the Truth About Abs program by Mike Geary which is considered the more successful abs program today, you learn more exercises for the rest of your body than you do for your abs. It just works better this way.
This is why all those abs gadgets are not the way to get flat abs. They neglect your entire body for just the stomach and this is not the way to lose belly fat. You may have to wait months to see any results with those gizmos.
The right way to train is to do a lot of strength training and high intensity interval training workouts. The reason why these workouts are the best is that they burn the most calories and they help to boost your metabolism higher so you continue shedding fat even when you’re not working out at all. The strength training increases muscle mass and your metabolism. Interval training creates an after burn effect, keeping your body’s fat burning processes running at high speed far after you’ve stopped working out.
The Truth is In the Eye of the Beholder
The truth can be either sad or happy. It’s up to you to decide. Some people will feel depressed because it may seem that there is no easy way to get flat abs. This may indeed be so. I urge you to take another perspective. Now you know the truth about what it takes to lose belly fat. You can do the right things without wasting time, money, energy, and hope on what can’t work at all.
You can burn belly fat and results can be fast. It is up to you to begin your quest for a six pack and to follow the course until you achieve your results. Do as I recommended and I’m sure that you will get fast results.
