Lose belly fat?
Ok I am a teenager and I have some belly fat... Even though I am slim. I weight 60KG and I am 1.78m tall, how can I transform the fat on my body into muscle, I can only train with my body weight as it wont stop my growth (no machines, dumbbells). I have tried many exercises, including HIIT, boxing bursts, running and I do martial arts and don't eat much more than 2300 calories a day. I walk 30 minutes everyday, besides saturday and sunday. Any tips please?
I think doing sports regularly and eating healthy is the key to everything. Just go ahead and do not give up. Loosing fat takes its time. (I'm not an expert but that's what I think)
Yes, I don't give up but I wanted to transform the fat into muscle, and that is taking much more time than it should... Obviously it takes time, I have done many abs workouts and seen barely any progress...
Maybe you already have ab mucles but the fat is like lying on top of the muscle. Do you know what I mean? If that is the case you should try to train the whole body and do cardio as well. That's the thing which helped me (at least a little)
Ok, you don't transform fat into muscle mass and you can't focus fat loss on a specific body part. You have to lower your body fat percentage. There are tons of topics on here, explaining it in every detail would take too long. Also working out with machines or weights doesn't stop your growth unless you do really heavy weight lifting as a sport.
2300 cal. seems like a lot if you are trying to cut fat off your body. I eat ~1600/day to maintain my current shape/size/weight. While I'm much older, I'm also a lot bigger I'd guess (6.5ft, 220lbs). You might want to research a good target intake for losing that fat (weight), and really look hard at what your eating. ..that's going to be key when you are getting down to the last of your body fat.
Try tracking your actual intake using an app like lose it or something. ..you cannot target reduce so you have to find a way to adjust your diet to meet your goals. Could be your starving yourself, forcing your body to retain fat stores...some of my best weight loss days are after eating a bowl of pasta? You may have to experiment with different approaches to find out what works for you. ..do drink more water and watch your sodium intake. ..
