Enjoying the Process of finding your Abs

So you want a fit body and get six pack abs fast? Time to hit the floor for a crunches, right? Please. Crunching alone isn't necessarily the best--and certainly not the most enjoyable--way to flatten your belly. We talked to dozens of people, who've toned their abs, we discovered their secrets include fun activities such as gardening, tennis, and dancing. Leading weight loss and fitness experts say, some simple lifestyle changes will provide you with a complete belly-flattening program.

Let me ask you a question, how many lives to you get? Just one and life itself can be hard enough. The truth is if you don't find fun or pleasure in what your doing it probley wont last.

10 Suggestions to help in the process of a leaner body  and to get flatten stomach fast.
1. Calm down. Too much stress can contribute to a potbelly. Stress increases levels of cortisol, a hormone that seems to direct fat to our middle. To keep levels low, try this 5- to 10-minute stress reducer: Find a quiet, comfortable place to sit. Next, take several slow, deep breaths to help clear your mind. Continue breathing deeply and repeat the word "one" to yourself as you exhale. (If you get distracted, just bring back your focus to the word "one.") Practice this for 5 to 10 minutes a few times a day. Another words, Chill Out!

2. Make sure to eat more fiber. Not only is fiber great for overall fat loss (it fills you up so you don't eat so offten). To get regular, aim for 25 to 35 g of fiber a day by eating more whole grains, fruits, and vegetables.

3. Easy with the alcohol. That glass of wine with dinner may be part of the reason your struggling to lose weight. Alcohol also tends to raise cortisol levels, turning it into fat in your belly.

If you don't smoke skip to step 5

4. Stop smoking now. For many reasons but for this lesson we will stick to the fat loss issue "It keeps me thin," proclaim many smokers. The truth is that smokers tend to have more abdominal fat than nonsmokers. The stress hormone cortisol seems to be the cause here. When people stop smoking, the amount of abdominal fat actually decreases. However at first you may over eat, so make sure to get control of the over eating and stop blaming it on smoking.

5. Make sure to drink plenty of fluids through out the day. You may fill bloated at first but that will soon pass through the system.

6. All the ab exercises in the world won't do a thing unless you lose the fat covering your abdominal muscles. Aerobic exercises for 45 to 60 minutes, four to five times a week.

7. Tuck your tummy exercises are easy and you can do them anywhere. Practice the tuck until it becomes comfortable, and soon it will come natural, like breathing. "Do it every chance you can.

8. When your ready hit the weights. Aim for two or three weight workouts a week.

9. Do bonus ab workouts. Stand when doing weight-lifting exercises. That way your abs work as well. " Concentrate on keeping your abs tight and maintaining good posture.

10. If you're age 50 or over, be sure to get six pack abs fast..
