A budda belly, mushroom cloud or muffin top, call it what you want. The little piece of skin underneath your belly button or just the whole area around your lower stomach is very difficult to make slim and flat. It’s the place where our body begins to store fat. It’s naturally, a tough place to totally make clear of excess fat because this is where biologically, our energy stores are. However, for those that want to look their best, have a trim and attractive figure it’s the bane of their life. There are lots of different ways you can trim this fat away but many of them are not known to the average Joe. These must be targeted solutions and they cannot be substituted for anything else. Compound movements won’t work either as all they’ll do is make the muffin top as small as possible without actually removing it. Here are some techniques that do work.
Lower upper body workout
Ab workouts are very commonly known. Situps and crunches are the two most widely acknowledged to be the best for getting a toned midsection. However they both attack the fat in the middle and at the top of your abs. They don’t necessarily get the job done for the fat around or underneath your belly button. Bicycle crunches are definitely something to try as this exercise does target this area. Lay flat on the ground on your back. Put your hands behind your head and then raise your knee as close and high to your body as you can. This literally crunches the muffin top and begins to slowly smoothen out the area. Hip dips are another great exercise as they allow the central focal point to be your belly button and the surrounding area.
Excess or loose skin
Even after you have worked out doing exercises that target the muffin top zone, you still might not get the results you want. This could be because after years and years of being out of shape, you have developed loose or excess skin. One of the solutions is to consider an abdominoplasty which is the medical term for a tummy tuck. Look at the tummy tuck videos and see if this is something you’re willing to take seriously. However, it must be noted that the aim is to give you a flatter midsection but it doesn’t mean that you won’t ever get a mushroom cloud belly again. If you don’t workout, don’t eat wisely then you could return back to square one. It’s not a cure all but it’s certainly one of the most effective solutions.
Differ you diet
Carbs are the enemy of all those that are trying to lose their budda belly. Therefore you need to consider changing up your diet and perhaps going the keto route. You won’t be relying on carbs for your main source of energy, instead fats, proteins and vegetables will be your main food groups.
Both men and women get the muffin top belly but for women it can cause loose skin to appear. Therefore consider the right workout regimen, a different diet and perhaps a more surgical approach as well. `
