    Belly Fat - What's the best way to burn?

    Hey y'all! First of all...I'm having a blast since I found this community! Helped me to achieve so many things, so thanks in advance!

    Before we jump to my question, I think I should talk a little bit about me/my workouts/mealplan.
    So I'm 27 yo, 180cm (5'9), weighing 99 kg (218 lbs)... Since I was younger I used to do any sports, but most of the time, martical arts like TKD and Muay Thai. Not focused on the results per se, but for fun, but of course knowing that's a really healthy thing! But 3 years ago I hurt my both shoulders (playing soccer, ironic right? lol) and had to stop with all my workouts, and then went from 86 kg (189 lbs) to 114 kg (251 lbs) in these 3 last years.

    Last October (2018) I started Boxing Training at my local gym, and also found Darebee. And last November I started the Power Fast Diet until today, I really got some good results, went from 114 kg (251 lbs) to 99 kg (218 lbs) in just 3 months, I think that's really good result since I'm not the fitness type guy. But now it's came what I want to ask: What should I do to burn faster my belly fat? I mean, just training boxing 3-5 times a week and doing the power fast diet I already lose a lot of weight, saw my body transform, gain muscles in my arms, legs, chest and back. But seems that I can't burn my belly fat. What should I do? Any tips? Advice?


    Thank y'all in advance! And sorry about my bad writing, hope you guys undesrtand, not a native english speaker/ writer here!

    First of all, Welcome to the Hive luke! Congrats on your results as well!

    Sadly, you can't spot reduce belly fat. You have to reduce fat over your entire body. Some people might take longer to see there belly fat go than others so be patient! Doing HIIT Training and Cardio will speed up the process so consider doing that. Make sure to stick to your meal plan and before you know it your belly's gone! Be sure to get a good night's sleep every day as well, sleep has a vital role in losing weight and getting gainz.

      I second that. A lot of man have a problem with the belly (love handles). Sadly you can't burn fat just at one particularly part of the body. Keep in mind that your eating habits/diet is more important than the workouts, if your goal is weight loss. Both combined is best.

        Problem areas usually disappear last. And for men the problem area is usually the belly, for a few it's the moobs or the double chin.

        But when is "last"? Well, below 15% body fat (for men) the problem areas should have shrunk to not be problem areas anymore. But you have a mirror, so if you're satisfied before then you can always stop.

        The body fat percentage is influenced by muscle mass (it's good to build this, but with, at maximum, 1 kg per month, it's pretty slow and capped at a certain point) and fat mass (with 0.5 - 1 kg per week this is pretty quick).
        I think for now 75 kg would be a good goal. But of course you will already see improvement once you enter the normal BMI range with 84 kg (as it stands you're almost obese).

        Power Fast should be a good choice, so if you simply keep doing what you're doing you should be making solid progress.

          Hey tks for the feedback y'all! Yeah I know that belly would be the last thing to burn, and there's no way to focus on burn one part of the body only. But any workouts to improve burn belly fat? Anyway, tks again!

            In my experience, losing fat takes three things, patience, the correct motivation that works for you, and consistency. The motivation part is key. For example, I am motivated by body composition and performance, such as how many pushups can I do, how long can I run, etc. I am not motivated by what the scale says, or if pants fit me or not. If I get on the scale, that is a "one way street to getting unfit and gaining weight". Solution, I just work out every day for a couple of hours and I have fun with it.

            I share this because it took me at least 10 years to figure this out.

            So figure things out that work for you. How do you that? By trial and error. And this takes weeks and months. There are no shortcuts. But, the easiest answer to your question is this: high burn cardio individual workouts, HIIT individual workouts. Both can be found in the workout data base. Do a couple of those everyday ( assuming you have the endurance for that) and in a couple of months, you will feel a difference.

            Have fun, and happy training

              Thank you for the insight and the info and for asking the question. I've trained and ran multiple running events as well as a half marathon. Been working on upper body and overall strength for the last couple of months and loving how I look in compression T-shirts till I let out the air and out pops my "6 month baby bump".

              I'll keep working on it too as well as my diet (but i just can't resist the gummi bears. lol)

              I'll keep working on it and hopefully come running season my belly fat will be gone too

                With the half marathons you will definitely notice the difference in weight once the belly is gone. The longer the distance the more noticeable changes in passive weight become.

                  luke, on top of the cardio/HIIT workouts, your diet could also be examined. You said you follow the Power Fast diet - are you sticking to it, do you have cheat days/use sugar? I found that for a great definition, my diet has to be really natural and without processed/calorically dense foods. Lots of greens, vegetables, soups, whole fruits, fiber, lean protein, just a few nuts/seeds a day and little to nothing else. (Then again I am a woman so my body tends to cling to fat reserves quite fiercely. It may not apply in your case.)

                    Yes Ann-Core I'm sticking with the diet, I fell very confortable with only the two meals a day with the power fast diet, I think maybe my metabolism is very slow that's why my struggle to lose belly fat.
                    Anyway I appreciate all the help, tks!
