These well-meaning folks devote time and effort under a faulty premise that gets them zero results.
And I get fired up!
I know that when you put your valuable time and energy into a fitness program, you deserve to see nothing less than amazing results. That’s my commitment to all of my clients, and is something that I am truly passionate about.
Just today (I am writing on Saturday 5th Novemer 2013) two of my lovely clients have come back to me with amazing results: 1 lady lost over 2 inches on her waist, 2 inches on her hips and 1 inch off her chest from doing my FIT LIFE Programe – i.e. just 3 weeks of Detox style eating and training with me 4 times during the week.
How do you think SHE feels about herself today!
The other lady comes to me every month for a Personal Training session and we update her programe which she goes away and does herself. I have been seeing her for about 6 months.
Today, at the age of 59 she has reached her goal and weighs less than before she had babies. She has toned up her legs, tummy and bottom and looks and feels amazing. She would say she is now comfortable in her skin – so she can go and live life to the full!!
You can see why I’d get so upset when I see people working hard without getting results.
So what’s this Muffin Top Myth?
The belief that doing a magical ab exercise will shrink and flatten your waist, and will rid you of a muffin top.
Sorry, there’s no such magical ab exercise.
In fact, all of the magical ab exercises in the world won’t make a dent in your muffin top, as long as you continue with your current, unhealthy lifestyle.
The true belly-shrinking magic is found in improving your diet and exercise routine to promote fat loss from your entire body, including—but not limited to—your midsection.
Here’s how to really get rid of that muffin top as my 2 lovely clients can tell you:
Shrink Your Belly Tip #1: Stop Eating Processed Food
Everyone loves a good shortcut, right? Depends on where that shortcut takes you.
Healthy food is an essential part of your fitness plan
From now on I want you to think of processed foods as a shortcut to belly fat.
I wouldn’t be surprised if future studies prove that the over-processing, chemical additives and high fructose corn syrup that are pumped into processed foods specifically adds fat around your belly.
If you want to shrink your belly then stay away from sugars, sodas, chemically altered fats, processed, packaged, fried and preserved foods.
Shrink Your Belly Tip #2: Eat Fresh, Whole Foods
Once you’ve cut the processed foods out of your diet, fill in the void with lots of fresh foods like:
- Green vegetables
- Whole, organic, seasonal fruits
- Lean, hormone-free, high quality meats
- Colorful organic veggies
- Nuts and seeds
I know this list of foods may seem boring at first, but if you stick with it long enough, you’ll grow to love the tantalizing flavors of real food. There are also so many exciting ways to put your food together that you will find yourself wondering why you ever ate that processed junk in the first place! Check out my new FAT BURNING Recipe Book for so many ways of eating food that is satisfying and nutritious.
When your diet is filled with the foods listed above, your body will quickly shed pounds and lean out.
Shrink Your Belly Tip #3: Do Challenging Exercise
The absolute best way to lose your muffin top forever is with a consistent, progressive exercise program.
- Consistent: You should be exercising 3-5 times each week.
- Progressive: For truly awesome results, keep your body guessing with new exercises and increasing intensity.
I’d love to hear from you! Call or email today to get started. Even if you don’t live in Horsham we can talk on the phone and I can write you a programe to do in the comfort of your own home. All exercises can be explained – either via DVD’s which I can record very easily for you or in picture format. I will be encouraging and motivating you all the way AND holding you accountable – which is where most people fail!!
