If only everything was just a click away on the road to a great body, right? Or if regional weight loss were real… If we had 10 sit-ups, 10 planks, and exercise arm for 1 week, abdominal muscles that would make the Greek gods jealous, and have 40 cm biceps… Unfortunately, this is not the case and today we will tell you why what you hear about regional slimming is not true.
What Does Weight Loss Depend On?
Weight loss and weight gain vary according to 3 factors. The first is nutrition, the second is exercise, and the third is genetic. And believe it or not, the same rules apply to everyone living in the world when it comes to weight.
The first move you need to do to lose weight is to renew your diet. Are you eating too many calories? Are you getting this extra calorie because you eat on plates for a day or because you finished 1 jar of peanut butter? Well, if you balance your diet, you can start to lose weight?
Likewise, the second factor you need to regenerate to lose weight is your exercise pattern. Do you do nothing but spend your whole day on the TV chair? Or are you among those who choose the second elevator and staircase option when you arrive at your home?
The third factor that you cannot modify is your genetics that you must acknowledge. Even if you apply everything you can with the thickness of your waist with 100% efficiency, you can slim your waist as much as your genetics allow. Let’s not go without adding your gender to the fact of your genetics. Gender is also an important factor in fat ratio and fat burning.
Regional slimming methods are not a factor that will bring you slimming and provide you with the body you want. Because there is no such thing as a regional diet, running a single area does not provide regional slimming, it only allows you to burn fat and lose weight from wherever there are excess fat tissues.
How can you lose weight?
We wanted to explain above that regional slimming exercises will not serve you. Now we’ll talk about how exactly weight loss happens.
Every food we eat has a calorie value. Our body gets calories from different foods, proteins, fats, and carbohydrates are foods with calorie values. Fish, banana, yogurt, walnut, spinach… Whatever comes to your mind, the foods contained in every food provide you with calories. These calories are used as an energy source in our body. Foods broken down during energy production provide energy to our muscles, organs, and each cell to maintain their metabolic activities.
If you consume more calories than you need daily, foods with these calories are stored in your body for possible famine situations. The accumulated foods cause you to gain weight as fat stores.
At this point, when you want to lose weight, you need to make changes to your diet and exercise pattern. You should pay attention to the calories of the food you consume in your diet, and if necessary, you should encourage your body to burn the fat it stores by eating fewer calories than you need daily. You should increase your energy needs by increasing your exercises (you can simply start using the ladder and do regular small workouts at home every day) and encourage your body to burn more fat.
Here, your body’s reaction is to activate all fat deposits by simultaneously increasing the heat and blood circulation in your whole body. At the same time, fat cells from all over your body begin to be broken down and converted into smaller fatty acids to meet the energy needs. This shows us that a regional fat-burning is not real.
Although it may sound logical to free the abdominal region from fat by doing only abdominal exercises, this is not the case. For this reason, we recommend that you do not believe any publication or person who says regional fat burning is possible.
