A Physique Coach Shared Some Simple Advice to Lose Belly Fat in a Matter of Weeks
In a new video on his YouTube channel, bodybuilder and physique coach Paul Revelia shares some simple advice for losing belly fat which he believes can be useful whether you’re a bodybuilder in a cut, or at the very start of your journey.
Firstly, he suggests using an app to track what you’re eating. “I wouldn’t recommend making any changes right away; in fact, do the opposite,” he says. “Go about your normal day, just start being accountable.” The commonly accepted wisdom is to eat a gram of protein per pound of your body weight. Revelia, on the other hand, believes you should be eating a gram of protein per pound of your goal weight.
His second tip is to start increasing your levels of physical activity each day. “This accountability for activity is going to be what drives the changes in your body,” he says. “Look at the calories going in, look at the activity. The focus should be on making sure that those calories are in a nice range, so you can actually move enough to lose body fat.”
“What it ultimately comes down to is finding something you enjoy, and creating that energy deficit. If it helps you to think that while you’re walking, you’re burning fat, great,” he continues. “A lot is said for doing hanging leg raises and crunches, and while they’re great for building those muscles in the rectus abdominis, the only thing that’s going to reveal them is if we lose this layer of belly fat.”
Finally, as an extra way of tracking your progress and staying accountable, Revelia recommends taking regular pictures: “Even if you don’t want to show other people, you will see the changes that are happening in your body.”
