Before we jump in the deep end with this topic it's important that you understand that YOUR BODY IS UNIQUE.
There are multiple scenarios where some people find it harder than others to reduce belly fat for numerous reasons such as: hormonal imbalance, stress, lack of sleep, poor nutrition, medication etc
So I'm going to cover the the basics & give you strategies that you can deploy right now!
The right type of training can have an enormous influence on how fast you burn belly fat.
Commonly it's thought that long, extended periods of cardio will force the body to burn your fat, however, while you might burn a lot of calories, hours of cardio is NOT a feasible option for most people.
This is where High Intensity Interval Training comes in.
I'm sure you've heard about "HIIT" before, maybe you've even been lucky enough to try it!
But have you actually done it? OR have you simply been performing 'Interval Training"?
Here's the thing..
The HIIT research that yields all the fat burning benefits had individuals performing exercise at MAXIMUM effort with every interval.
If you're doing 30 seconds work intervals with only 30 seconds rest intervals, your performance is going to suffer and as a result you won't be operating with maximal effort.
Instead, take a longer rest period, as long as is needed for you to really give 100% with every interval.
In The Journal Of Diabetes Research it stated that "MICT [Moderate intensity continuous training aka cardio] consisting of prolonged sessions has no quantitative advantage, compared with that resulting from HIIT, in abdominal visceral fat reduction [the dangerous belly fat]. HIIT appears to be the predominant strategy for controlling obesity because of its time efficiency."
Basically, HIIT can yield the same amount of fat loss as your long cardio sessions, just in way less time given that you are performing it correctly.
