How do you lose extra storage fat? Just as a rule, never eliminate the macro-nutrients your body needs such as protein, carbs, or fat from your diet. There are many diets out there that play around with these critical components of our nutrition. HOWEVER, you can definitely LIMIT them in order to see outstanding results. Of course, you should accompany your eating plan with an exercise routine that has cardio-vascular and resistance training.
For a challenging test, try to ELIMINATE sugar. This is anything with cane sugar in it. For a short list, it means soda, sweet tea/coffee, cake, cookies, and even white bread.
You can consume your carbs from fruits and vegetables either before or after a workout.
If you are having trouble losing that final 5kg, once you have eliminated sugar, you will lose that final layer of fat and water retention around your belly button area if you are a man, and from your hips if you are a women.
For instance, I like to work out first thing in the morning when I wake up. I eat a banana and do a variety of exercises that include running, swimming, weights, and calisthenics.
Some days, if I do just a cardio workout, I will skip the banana and wait to eat after the workout. After workout, I drink a high plant based protein shake and fruits to replace lost carbs and drink water as well.
For lunch, I eat a big salad with a protein source again like tofu or tempeh. The salad is filled with high fiber carbs like broccoli, carrot, mushrooms, green leafy lettuce like romaine, onions, almonds, and maybe even some strawberries to top it off. Squirt some lemon juice or a balsamic vinegar type dressing for some added flavor, and good fats like avocado and olive oil.
After lunch, I do not eat any more carbs during the day except those that come in fruits and other nuts for snacks. At this point, my body will still have enough carbs to function properly for the rest of the day. However, if you workout in the evening, you may want to add a few pieces of fruit or vegetables prior to exercise, no longer than 30 minutes before.
For dinner, I have a bowl of oats with different toppings. And if I get hungry late into the evening, I just drink more water. This has worked for me to get rid of those last few extra kilos being carried around.
