How To Lose Stubborn Belly Fat Through Ketosis

Losing stubborn belly fat is one of the biggest challenges when getting in shape. Belly fat is not only aesthetically unappealing, it has health consequences. It can make you vulnerable to many conditions such as diabetes and heart problems. In this blog, we will share with you why belly fat is so ‘stubborn’ to burn, explain what exactly is Ketosis and how you can lose stubborn belly fat through Ketosis. We will also share a specific exercise and a diet plan to help burn this belly fat. What is Stubborn Belly fat and why it is bad for our health? While you may have fat all over different parts of your body, it isn’t the same. Stubborn belly fat is the soft layers of fat around the waistline that covers your abs. To be more precise, there are three types of fat: Triglycerides– A fat circulates in your blood Subcutaneous Fat– The layer of fat directly below the skin’s surface. This is the fat you can grab with your hands Visceral Fat– The dangerous fat. This is located beneath the muscles in your stomach Belly fat unfortunately does not just sit still. Some visceral fat is necessary, but too much can lead to health problems. You can estimate whether you are carrying too Continue reading >>

    OK so I've been on Keto for about 6 months now and no complaints, I've tracked my macros made sure I got enough electrolytes and the whole bit. I've lost a little over 40 lbs so far and feel great. I have one nagging, frustrating, really eats-at-my-soul type of issue: As you can tell by the title, it's my stomach.
    I'm 27 years old, 5'7 and began at 210 lbs and am currently weighing in between 165-170 lbs. I've gone from wearing size 36 to size 32. My face looks different, my legs are slimmer and my chest is getting where I want it to be slowly. My stomach is another story. Of course I have lost some of the fat but it still sticks out a lot more than I feel it should for the weight I'm at. I've never had a flat stomach in my life and have read that it may just be genetics and I have to work super hard to lose the shape. As far as exercise goes I've been doing P90X for the majority of the time I've been on Keto.
    Is there anything I can do about this? Has anyone else gone through the same thing? Is it as simple as losing the next 10-15 pounds? I've been eating roughly 1400 calories a day since I started and going lower than that doesn't feel right to me with the amount of exercise I do. It's frustrating because my waist has gotten smaller but my stomach sticks out over top of my pants. Do I just keep calm and keto on or is there something I can change?

    What Bodyfat% are you? Have you recalculated your macros recently?
    As far as i'm aware, men's abdominal fat is the last to go, and for women it's hips and bum.
    Since you're my age, my height and sex. Currently I weigh 156lbs with water loss (about 163 with water). I'm 18% BF and my stomach still sticks out more than i'd like. I think 15% BF will be the special number to reach for a 'flat' stomach. If you pinch your belly fat, can you feel the muscle underneath? It's a fairly recent thing for me but i can get a good feel of what's underneath now. Probably since about 20%.
    Though my stomach sticks out more than i'd like, my whole abdominal is significantly less wide than when I was 23/25%.

    It's not genetics. It's probably posture. Bad posture causes your diaphragm to sink down and out, causing a pot belly appearance.
    What you need to do is find the cause of your bad posture and correct it.
    Stop wearing shoes with elevated heels (wear zero drop shoes), stop sleeping with a pillow, stop slouching (wear a clavicle brace for a while if needed) and focus on exercises that improve your posture, not make it worse.
    Meaning, don't do exercises that will tighten your pecs and pull your shoulders forward (push ups, bench press, etc...) and focus on exercises that strengthen your back and expand your chest.
    Do lot's of stretching (hell, do yoga if you can) and don't forget about your pelvis and legs. Chances are you also have Lumbar Lordosis if you have a pot belly posture. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Svlc3TfCJA)
    With correct exercise and posture control you can fix this problem in 1 month (that's how long it takes for your muscles to re-adjust).
    I've had the same problem (also had a rotated pelvis which I have fixed, I also have pectus excavatum which I'm in the process of fixing) and I've pretty much eliminated my pot belly.
    Good luck ;)
