With 2015 coming to a close, you’ve probably been thinking about your New Year’s resolutions. It’s estimated that one in three people will resolve to exercise and lose weight. Unfortunately, a far smaller percentage of those people will actually follow through with their resolutions. Although approximately 75 percent of individuals will follow their health regimen for about a week, less than half of them (46 percent) will be on target at the six-month mark.
Even with the best of intentions, losing belly fat is one of the hardest things you may ever do in your life. It takes dedication, determination and the ability to stop eating those scrumptious cookies your grandma baked for the holidays. Obtaining a flat stomach is easy when you look at it on paper; eat less food and burn more calories. While this seems pretty cut and dry, most people run into problems when it comes to burning more calories.
