How to get rid of that last little bit of fat from my abs?

Recommended Posts

Stop doing useless over cardio and start using wights + do 30 minutes abs daily.

 

Cardio over 1 hour daily is useless and waste of time.

 

Bodybuilders use a cream/ointment to apply on abs, I am not sure if it's steroids but I have seen it work very well.

Have you tried exercising on an empty stomach? There is the theory that "fasting exercise" is better at targeting fat. The idea is when carb stores are low in the body, your body will start to burn stored fat.

 

A lot of people will "carb load" before exercise which is good for increasing muscle mass and stamina but not so good for reducing body fat.

 

 

Urban legend forever it seems...

Get over your vanity and live with it.  Seems you have done a pretty good job so far and congratulations, but to resort to liposuction, you must be nuts, have you seen any videos of it?  Yuck.

I had never  heard of fasting exercise before. But on weekdays I do my workouts about 6 a.m. before breakfast because it is the most convenient time for me before I go to work.  Is there anything  negative about working out before eating?

There is also the option of Cool Sculpting. It is supposedly FDA approved but not cheap.  Available in Thailand and supposedly works for spot fat reduction.

Another new great marketing BS that only retards and lazy can do.

 

In case you dont know FDA approved only means "I PAID A LOT TO BE ABLE TO SELL IN USA", nothing else.

You need to either increase your cardio to 90min plus endurance where your heart rate is at least 60% of your max. (220-your age is a rough guide) or modify your diet into a state of ketosis, (fat burning state). To do this you can't eat more than 20 grams of carbs a day. this will entail about 2 cups of salad leaves for lunch and 1 1/2 cups  green veg or salad at dinner. Have protein shakes just read the contents on the label and make sure it is less than 1 gram of carbs. The more protein the better as this will keep you fuller longer. No potatoes, pumpkin, carrots and other root veggies. Anything with colours other than green as it is sugar that adds the colour. No sugar at all as this will take you out of ketosis as your body is smart and will go for the easiest energy source. It will take you 3 days to get back into ketosis state. As little as 3 M&M's will take you out of state. Drink plenty of water to flush toxin build up out. Eat small eat regular, 5-6 meals a day keeps metabolism ticking over. Your energy levels may be a bit lower while doing this. When you have the desired result if you gradually add carbs and sugars you will be able to work out what your body needs to stay that way. You may want to take a good multi vitamin to cover anything that you aren't getting though food.

 I have done this diet a few times and it is the best one I have come across, It is just work and lifestyle at the moment that is causing the fluctuations.

 Good luck.

Thanks for all the replies.  Probably the comment that is closest to the truth is:

 

 

ie liposuction.  I actually consulted my doctor last week about this, when I was in BKK.  He commented that indeed, I had very little fat left on my lower abs (my upper abs are very well-defined).  Since (as many have mentioned), one cannot spot-reduce fat, lipo was one option.  

But my doctor also advised me not to have lipo, because such an immediate removal of fat would leave some loose skin, and (in his own words) 'that wouldn't look good on such a healthy body''!

 

If I reduce my calorie intake, then I run the risk of exposing my ribcage and looking anorexic.  I certainly don't want that.

 

Spot-increasing muscle mass is quite feasible, and I engage in gym routines that exercise/stress my lower abs (captain's chair, upsidedown inclined sit-ups etc).  My stomach is like a hard washboard :)

 

I think I'll try swimming for a few months, (need to fit this into my daily regime).  

 

This health & fitness programme has not been an overnight process, and I expect things will all take time.  Perhaps I'll see my lower abs well-defined by the time I'm 60....

Yohimbe and morning cardio is required.. But you will lose fat at other places too. I know your problem I am always struggling too to remove the last little bit of fat. Its just the hardest part to remove.

Sounds like torture.

I probably am not doing enough exercise to get rid of this remaining fat.  I do about 1 hour of cycling every day, plus 1 hour of running every other day or 1 hour of gym weight work.

 

Garry, the cool sculpting is a neat liposuction 'trick' to sculpt the appearance of a six pack in the fat that lies on top of the muscles. But in my case, the fat layer is too thin over my lower abs, (and non-existent on my upper abs), and I wouldn't 'cheat' in any case :)

 

I certainly don't intend to have lipo - it was simply a question that I asked my doctor out of curiosity.

Simon,

 

You probably are.. but the last little bit of fat is hard to remove. They do say yohimbine and morning cardio (you cant eat for a while after yohimbine) will help. But its real hard to get rid of that last little bit.

Have you tried a bit of good ol fashioned bonking….works for me.

Recommend the OP marries a Thai girl and builds a guest house. Sweeping the floors and stairs will get rid of the fat......
