Please ask the coach, I have lost weight and exercised a lot, but because of my “bread waist” body, I don’t have a waist belt. So how do I fix it? (Thu Ly, 28 years old, HCMC)
Each person has a unique shape determined by genes. If you belong to the type of person with a bread waist (ie a big waist), even if you lose weight, you will still have features such as a thick abdomen, accumulation of belly fat and back, so you will not look slim.
For the bread-waist body type, the training method should be a full-body workout, alternating training schedules such as one day of strength training, one day of combined cardio. At the end of the session, you can spend another 15-20 minutes doing pilates exercises, core exercises will help improve the waist-to-body ratio, shape the waist. Do not exercise the abdomen alone to reduce fat, because it will be easy to thicken the abdominal muscle layer, which looks coarser.
In addition, it is necessary to maintain the “eat clean” mode, ensuring the right amount of calories to avoid accumulating belly fat. Eat clean is a diet that prioritizes fresh, healthy and clean food, without preservatives. The basic principles of eat clean will encourage you to consume more whole foods such as: fruits, vegetables, lean protein, whole grains, and healthy fats. Limit processed snack foods, sweets, and other packaged foods.
