6 Tips to Lose Belly Pooch Fast

6 Tips to Lose Belly Pooch Fast

Sharing is caring!

Now, given that we’re all completely unique individuals, we all store fat differently.

However, our lower belly tends to be a place where many of us have excess fat, often referred to as the “belly pooch”.

Before I get into 6 tips to lose belly pooch fast, here are 4 leading factors that contribute to why we accumulate excess fat in our lower belly:

  • Genetics
  • Inflammation
  • Lifestyle factors
  • Diet

Although we cannot change our genetics, there are definitely some things we can adjust and implement to help get rid of the belly pooch, and this doesn’t need to take forever to do so!

You can stop doing 1000 sit ups, hours of cardio and being in a constant calorie deficit, okay.

This is not going to get rid of belly fat alone and this is NOT enjoyable.

Here are 6 tips to lose belly pooch fast.

    1. Meat and dairy consumption

    Alright now this might sound pretty standard… but, even if you think you are eating healthy and the right foods, it can take only minor adjustments to your diet to see a pretty significant difference, for the better!

    Things to consider:

    How much meat are you consuming?

    Now although lean meats are considered a healthy addition to your diet, they can also be higher in calories than a plant based alternative which is much lower in calories and more easily digested.

    Consider swapping your meat portion for something such as tofu, tempeh, beans, legumes or more veggies a little more often and see what difference you notice.

    How much dairy are you consuming?

    Even if you are only consuming lite milk, low fat Greek yogurt, lite mayo etc, the dairy content in it is higher calorie and often our bodies do not react well to dairy products.

    Milk is promoted as a healthy beverage for children, but some researchers believe that estrone and whey protein in dairy products may cause weight gain.

    Try opting for a plant based alternative such as soy, almond, oat, coconut, rice, help, or cashew milk. 

    They are lower in calories and our bodies digest plant milk better than dairy milk.

    I personally switched to plant based dieting after consuming meat and dairy since I can remember and I have never been more lean in my life.

    It made such a huge difference to my body composition and I never knew just how much plant based eating could positively impact my life all round.

    I actually put together a plant based beginners guide and meal planner that is free to download below. 

    By implementing my tips in this guide you will avoid making the same mistakes I made when starting out and instead fast track your way to success.

    2. Consume more fiber

    Getting enough fiber in your diet can help with weight loss.

    However, it is important that you consume the right type of fiber.

    Soluble and viscous fiber have the most effect when ti comes to weight loss.

    These fibers bind water and form a thick gel that sits in your gut.

    This process can significantly slow down the speed at which the food moves through your digestive system. 

    Your body will also absorb and digest these types of fiber slower.

    This will result in feeling fuller for longer and reducing your appetite, there fore you eat less and may result in weight loss.

    One study suggests that consuming an additional 14 grams of fiber each day resulted in a 10% decrease in calorie intake and weight loss of around 4.5 pounds (2 kg) over 4 months.

    Another 5-year study showed that consuming 10 grams of soluble fiber each day was linked to a 3.7% reduction in fat stored in the abdominal area. 

    Fiber rich foods:

    • Bananas
    • Berries
    • Broccoli
    • Beans
    • Potatoes with skin
    • Peas
    • Nuts
    • Seeds

    These are just a few options of foods containing decent amounts of fiber that are easy to include in your diet.

    3. Body weight training

    The great thing about high intensity training is that it doesn’t need to be long but it still gets your heart rate right up and helps you BURN FAT!

    Also with high intensity bodyweight training you will still be burning calories for a couple hours even after you stop.

    I personally recommend no less than 15 minutes 5 times per week for better results.

    I believe in bodyweight training so strongly that I created my very own 8 Week Burn Build Shape Body Transformation Program

    This will definitely help you burn fat and lose the belly pooch fast when combined with a healthy balanced diet!

    Before doing any workout be sure to warm your body up first. Whether this is some jumping jacks, skipping or jogging on the spot for a few minutes.

    Just get your body warm.

    Think of your muscles like a piece of chewed up chewing gum. 

    When its being chewed its warm and you can easily stretch it very long if you wanted to be that gross, but if you sat it down on a table for some time and went back to it, it wouldn’t be near as stretchy or even be hard because its cooled down.

    Your muscles are exactly the same.

    4. Portion size

    I don’t need to tell you that monitoring the types of food you consume is important.

    And especially important for losing overall body fat, including lower belly fat.

    But knowing how to monitor what you consume and what you should be consuming is something that many people don’t know. 

    Now, what i’m not going to tell you to do is to count calories.

    I find calorie counting completely  unnecessary most of the time.

    Instead, use your hands to monitor your portion size.

    Now, depending on the type of diet you follow will depend on how much you consume.

    For example, if you follow a diet that includes meat, then you will be better off following my Portion Size Guide that I include in my 21-Day Weight Loss Plan.

    Download your FREE portion size guide!

    No more counting calories! Use this easy alternative.

      If you follow a plant based or vegan diet then my approach to food consumption is slightly different.

      On a plant based diet you will naturally be consuming more carbohydrates and likely fiber, and plant based whole foods are much lower in calories than foods that contain meat and dairy.

      Therefore you can consume a larger volume of food and still maintain or lose weight if you know how to do it correctly.

      This is what I explain in my Vegan Beginners Guide and Meal Planner below.

      5. Base your diet around whole foods

      Whole foods are foods in their natural form.

      Fruits, veggies, beans, legumes, nuts, seeds & grains.

      These foods are lower in calorie and don’t have the added preservatives, colorings, flavour enhances, MSG etc that nasty processed food has.

      Processed foods to avoid

      The following foods are a good example of processed foods that will do your body more harm than good, and you should avoid. 

      • Packaged microwave dinners
      • Chocolate
      • Candy
      • Most breakfast cereals
      • Snack bars and packets (fruit rolls, nut bars, cereal bars, flavored corn thins and rice crackers etc)
      • Chips
      • Fries
      • Most bread (I recommend whole grain bread that has had the least amount of processing and additives possible)
      • biscuits, cookies, scones, donuts, cake
      • Fried food
      • Most plant based burger patties or any “vegan/vegetarian’ version 
      • Soda
      • Juice
      • Alcohol
      • Sugared sports drinks

      By eliminating these foods from your diet you will not only lose belly fat, but you will see a significant loss in over all body weight. 

      Consuming a diet based around whole foods can definitely help you lose the belly pooch fast.

      6. Get help from someone with experience

      Now you can take the slow up and down road to reaching your weight loss goals, and MAYBE get there, but then likely fall back into the same trap of yo yo dieting, emotional eating and frustration, or, you could work with an experienced health coach and take out all the guess work, fumbling in the dark, ups and downs and frustrations.

      By getting help from someone with more experience than you is going to fast track your way to success. 

      They will teach you skills and strategies to manage and maintain your nutrition, fitness and lifestyle habits long term.

      If you’re really serious about losing the belly pooch, losing overall body fat, getting fit, healthy living a sustainable and rewarding lifestyle, I would love to help you.
