    If you’re really concerned with belly fat, you need to be doing crunches and ab workouts in addition to the cardio. No Pain, No Gain!

    You can not target fat loss

    The key is: Diet Diet Diet, then exercise:

    You need to eat 5-6 small meals a day. Eat some protein with each meal! Cut out all refined sugar!!! Also add more fiber. The fiber and protein will fill you up, helping you to cut down on your unhealthy eating. Also by eating more than 3 meals spread out through the day you will kick your metabolism in high gear. Here is a general meal for a day:

    Breakfast: 2 poached eggs
    whole wheat toast
    1/2 cup fruit

    Snack: Cottage Cheese with veggie

    Lunch: Turkey, lettuce, tomato, whole wheat bread sandwich
    1/2 cup fruit

    Snack: Protein Shake

    Dinner: Turkey Burger ( no bun )
    Side of brown rice
    Side of Broc.

    Then exercise regularly 4-5 days a week. Do both cardio and lifting. But on days that you do both. Do lifting before your cardio and you will maximize your fat burn. Cardio can be a sport: basketball, soccer, football, anything with losts of movement. Golf is a no no.

    So Example :

    Monday – 30 mins lifting then 1 hr cardio
    Tuesday – 1 hour lifting
    Wednesday – Rest
    Thrusday – 30 mins lifting then 1 hr cardio
    Friday – 1 hour lifting
    Saturday – Rest
    Sunday – 30 mins lifting then 1 hr cardio

    The best cardio exercise is simply the one you will do day in and day out consistently. Choose one which you enjoy doing and don’t be afraid to mix the exercises up. Interval cardio work consists of moving from one exercise to another in set time intervals. For example, you could do the elliptical trainer for 15 minutes, then switch to the stationary bike for another 15 minutes and finish off on the treadmill for the last 15 minutes. Interval training is a great way to keep everything fresh!

    There are two schools of though when it comes to cardio training. The “slow & steady” group and the “high intensity” group. These two groups breakdown like this:

    Slow & Steady Cardio

    Long duration (45min – 1 hour)
    Low intensity
    Burn fat and not carbs
    Preserve joints
    High Intensity Cardio

    Short duration (20min – 30min)
    High intensity (interval training)
    Burn tons of calories & rev up your metabolism throughout the day
    Treat cardio like weights – explosive movements (sprinting, etc)
    Our advice is to try both for at least 6 weeks and make sure to monitor your progress with a journal and take weekly photos of yourself to see if you’re truly losing body fat.

    cycling is one of the best cardio exercises without any impact on your feet. You need to pick a smaller gear and pedal faster. If you look at the professional riders they pedal at a rate of about 80 revolutions per minute to have good cardi and less strain on the muscles. You won’t be able to to that to start with but that is about what you should aim for.

    I used to be 105kg (16 stone) and just by cycling to and from work dropped to 80kg (11 1/2 stone) It was 10km (6 miles) each way
