How to lose belly fat and keep your big butt

Three quick steps to rocking those apple bottoms jeans.

Try intensity cardio vascular work outs.

You’re not alone.

A lot of fitness fads have taken to their social media to show how they got their apple/pear shaped bodies from scratch and women have tried it all. From waist trimmers to green tea detox and army diets, it’s safe to say that a lot of the lasses are groping in the dark to find what will work for their bodies.

First things first:

Unfortunately, the first spot to burn out when you start your weight loss program will be the thighs and butt.

However, butts are more muscle than anything and a good work out plan should help you lose the ‘butt-fat’ while you gain muscle in instead.

Lifting weights will tighten your muscles and in the long run perk up your bum for a shapelier round look. It also increases your metabolic rate which ultimately fuels burning fat along your midsection.

For the best results work out 2-3 sets of lower body weight lifting exercises 2 to 3days a week.

Also, try out high intensity cardio. This is effectively help lose weight in all the right places. For best results, perform intense cardiovascular exercises 20 to 30 minutes, 3 – 5 days a week. It helps muscle toning and also reduces stubborn body fat without heavily affecting body weight.

It can be said enough, your body is made in the kitchen. Eat nutritiously and sensibly by checking on your calorie intake through portion control. Opt for fiber rich foods, healthy fats and lean protein to boost your fat burning mechanism.
