The purpose of this brief post is to give you all of the ammunition that you need to lose belly fat fast.
If you are like me, belly fat is both dangerous health wise, as well as for our appearance.
There are just so many oversized sweaters that we can wear and the summer is approaching.
I am sure you want to look great at the pool and in your slim khakis as much as I do.
How to Lose Belly Fat Fast for Men
I am the crash test dummy for losing belly fat. I will not get into my history, which is all over this site, but suffice it to say that I have tried every diet out there, every way to lose belly fat.
I say that these are the top 7 ways how to lose belly fat for men because of my own experience but I do believe that they will be just as effective for a woman.
Here are the top strategies that work for me, and I am confident will work for you too:
How to Lose Belly Fat Fast for Men – Step 1
Make up your mind that you are ready to change your habits in order to get into or back into shape.
Make up your mind that you are willing to focus on yourself and getting healthy.
Take a front and a side picture of where you are today in your gym shorts.
Measure your waist right on top of your belly button.
If you are happy with the photo and waist size, go out and have a beer, cake and fries cause there is nothing to do. This site is not for you, you lucky genetic freak!
If you are dismayed, shocked, disappointed, think that there is room for improvement, then look at those photos and promise yourself that you can and will do better.
How to Lose Belly Fat Fast for Men – Step 2
Start immediately after you read this article.
You do not have to wait until after the wedding, graduation, office party, birthday etc to start.
The time to start is now.
The sooner you develop the right habits, the sooner that you will be losing your belly fat fast.
Remember, how to lose belly fat fast for men is relative. If you have put on 100lbs over 20 years, do not expect to lose that fat overnight.
It took me 9 months to go from a 50+” waist to 32″ and from 250lbs to 175lbs.
But considering the 40 years of processed food that contributed to my big fat belly, 9 months is not a long time in taking it off.

Now you have your pictures, your waist measurement and your will.
Nothing will stand in front of your will to lose your belly fat, nothing.
The third step is for you to drink water throughout the day, when you wake up to a few hours before you go to sleep.
This will help to cleanse your system from toxins as well as the fat you will be releasing from your body.
Drink water means to drink water, not soda, not orange juice, not vodka, not diet soda. Capisce? Water! And yes, if you can get filtered, purified or bottled water like Evian or Smart water, it is better, if not, go with what you have.
How to Lose Belly Fat Fast for Men – Step 4
Every day, you MUST eat breakfast, lunch, dinner and one or two snacks.
Food is your friend, not your enemy.
This does not mean a donut, a slice of pizza and a hot dog with a snickers for a snack. No.
This means Real Food.
Old fashioned oatmeal and strawberries for breakfast. Or, a vegetable egg omelette with hummus and avocado on the side for breakfast.
Rice and beans, or brown rice and chicken (hormone free and grass fed the best) for lunch or a bowl of black bean soup.
Dinner a sweet potato or white potato with eggs or tilapia or salmon.
Simple, easy to understand and prepare. Do not make this complicated, it is not.
Real vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans, high quality protein, that's it, this is not as complicated as you might think.
Snack on an apple, some berries and almonds or a high quality whey protein supplement especially after a good strength workout, which brings us to –
How to Lose Belly Fat Fast for Men – Step 5
Start strength training.
Start with 1 pushup today if that is all you can do. Use good form. Add an additional pushup every other day, preferably Mon, Wed and Friday, so you can leave the weekend open for celebrating life with your friends and/or family.
Start with air squats or air deadlifts, meaning using no weight, when you feel that you are able.
I recommend free weights.
If you can use the 45lb olympic bar, great, start with that and add 2.5lbs to 5lbs each time that you feel you can lift your current weight comfortably.
Always use good form.
1 set of 5 repetitions up to 5 sets of 5 repetitions works. You do not have to spend 2 hours in the gym. Three times a week for 30 to 45 min is enough.
Do you have 30 minutes available 3x a week to lose your belly fat?
Keep a record of the weights you have lifted and your pushups so you will know the new numbers to shoot for in order to improve gradually.
If not, then you will still lose fat by eating real food, but you will not build the muscle that you need for both health and appearance.
Build muscle, this is good for your health, mobility, body and mind.
