Here’s a question I get all the time: Can You Really Lose Just Belly Fat?

The quick answer is Yes...and No.

The ‘NO’ part is that “spot reduction” or losing fat from just one area on your body has officially been labeled as a myth. Fat can’t just choose to come off from only one area!

So, it truly doesn’t matter how many crunches you do or the number of ways you exercise your abdominal muscles - you’re not going to suddenly be equipped with a 6-pack unless you focus on the bigger body composition picture - and that’s a combination of exercise AND nutrition.

But, the real question should be this:

Why are you seeing excess fat on your belly in the first place?

The Connection Between Exercise, Sleep & Your Weight

When it comes to managing your health and your weight, it’s no secret that exercise and sleep are huge factors. 

In my recent 4 part video series- the Four Pillars of Health, we learned about incorporating Healthy Eating, Exercise, Mindset and Sleep, and why they are all important for our health. (Link at the bottom in case you missed this series)

You know that exercise will help you burn off some extra calories and boost your metabolism. But you also know that sleep is essential for your overall health and well-being.

So, is it better to skimp on sleep and get up early to workout?

Or is it better to sleep in and skip the gym for another day?

Well, it’s a bit more complicated than that. We need exercise to sleep better but we also need sleep to exercise. And when it comes to weight management, we need both.

So let’s take a closer look at how exercise and sleep affect each other and which one takes the lead when it comes to managing your weight.

It's a hot topic right now- weight loss. I hear over and over that my ladies want to lose wight, BUT they don't want to go to the gym, and they don't want to do some things they KNOW they need to be doing. So, I want to break it down and make it a bit easier. Learn 5 Fat Burning Techniques to Lose Weight Comfortably in your home.

Finding the time to work out can be hard enough with our busy lives. And I personally don't go to the gym. I like doing things on my own schedule. I know for many of my clients, time and comfort is of the essence. So taking a 15-minute drive back and forth from the gym, and encountering ogling strangers during your workout, can be a complete turn off. So maybe you don't need to workout at the gym at all. Sound good?

How to Naturally Lower Cortisol (The Stress Hormone)

STRESS!!! It's everywhere and super common. And there are so many causes. 

Our natural “fight or flight” stress response can sometimes go a little overboard. It’s supposed to help us escape injury or death in an emergency and then return to normal after we’ve fought or flew. But, that doesn’t happen too much in our society - it becomes a long-term reaction. It becomes chronic.

You’ve probably heard of the main stress hormone, called “cortisol.”  It’s released from your adrenal glands in response to stress. It’s also naturally high in the morning to get you going, and slowly fades during the day so you can sleep.

Did you know that too-high levels of cortisol are associated with belly fat, poor sleep, brain fog, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and even lowers your immunity?
