Elaine loves her consultation calls with you ladies (book yours below) but losing belly fat is still something most of you are confused about. A lot of ladies keep asking her in their sessions for specific workouts to target belly fat - which isn't our fault because Tiktok/Youtube & Instagram fitness has completely misled us all about how the human body works.
Elaine fell for the ab workout BS too earlier in her journey; but at the end of the day you could do 1000 ab crunches a day for the rest of your life and not lose a single lb or see your waist shrink. WHY??
Because you CANNOT target or spot reduce fat in the human body!
Unless your ab crunches are putting you in a calorie deficit (which they're not), you won't lose a single inch. The ONLY way to lose belly fat is through a calorie deficit; and even when you're in a calorie deficit your GENETICS choose when you lose the belly fat during your weight loss journey.
For those who are not familiar with the term “calorie deficit”, here’s an explanation:
“Let's tackle the basics of weight loss. The human body follows the Laws of Thermodynamics, also referred to as energy balance. Energy is expressed in calories – the calories we burn through exercise, other movements, digestion, metabolism and the calories contained in food and beverages.
Weight loss occurs when there's a calorie deficit – that is, the calories you take in are fewer than the calories you burn. The body then mobilizes its calorie stores from fat tissue, glycogen stores, and lean body mass to fuel all metabolic processes to keep you alive.” ¹
