The good news is that losing a significant amount of abdominal fat in 2 weeks is a realistic goal. That ugly abdominal fat is much less stubborn fat that clings to the hips, buttocks and thighs. In fact, the abdominal area is usually the first reserve of fat in your body that decreases each time you embark on a weight loss journey.

To get on the fast track to losing abdominal fat , your cardio program must be an aggressive one that includes high intensity intervals.

These improvements lead to increased fat oxidation throughout the body, which means that your body will be more efficient in the use of fat, especially the abdominal, as a source of energy during exercise, instead of the precious muscle. Furthermore, HIIT will continue to burn calories at a higher rate after completing your training. The same effect is not achieved with steady state cardio moderate or low intensity.
