5 Belly Fat Mistakes Women Over 55 Should Avoid


How do I get rid of stubborn belly fat?

The most frequent question I hear as a Personal Trainer for ladies over 55 is, “How do I get rid of stubborn belly fat?” This inquiry is usually followed by a core exercise request. There's more to belly fat loss than core workouts.

Too Much Sugar Sneaks Up on You!

Are you actually counting your daily sugar grams? Too much refined sugar accumulates in the belly, one of the most hazardous fat storage sites.

Alcohol Keeps Weight on Your Midsection

An evening drink of wine is calming. Sometimes that glass is bottomless. Add a few social gatherings and you've had alcohol more days than you thought.

You Stress and Eat Emotionally

Instead of facing your stress, anger, irritation, sadness, or emotion, you snack from the pantry, fridge, and freezer. Stress and emotional eating are useful in the moment but never healthy afterwards.

You Only Count Calories

When you think about dieting, you probably think of cutting carbohydrates and calories. This promotes limitation and shortage and is hard to maintain.

Walking Only for Exercise

Walking just for exercise is one of the top belly fat blunders women over 55 make. Your fitness regimen should include walking and weight training at least 2-3 times a week to increase strength, endurance, and metabolism.
