When it comes to losing that belly or pooch, you need to kick up that workout intensity. It is extremely important that when you exercise you are in a training zone that is creating great caloric expenditure. One of the most challenging things for an individual who is just starting out with their fitness routine is finding out where that specific range(s) are.
When this dillemma happens, that is when you want to seek the consultation or hiring of a Portland Oregon personal trainer or fitness expert in your area. If your goal is to lose belly fat, then you need to develop a workout and nutrition program centered around that goal. The personal trainer will develop the exercise program for you and go over food options that you can choose from, but he/she is going to make you a food diary so you are aware of what you are eating. Their profession is not to tell you what exactly to eat, their goal is to let you make your own food choices, but to be aware of what you are putting in your mouth. When you finally realize what you are really eating, you will make better choices, because if you do have a pooch, the food choices you have currently been making are not working for you.
