The BEST way to lose belly fat? Simple. Get fat adapted on a low carb diet, very low carb. Not atkins low carb but closer to keto low carb.
Then fast for a couple days, eat plenty especially of protein and omega 3 fats on your eating days, and once a month or once a week fast for 2-3 days once you know how to fast for days.https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21410865
Here's a study. What does the study say? Well people who calorie restricted, lost 25% of their lean muscle mass calorie restricting. Where as people who did extended fasts, lost 10% of their muscle mass. Even though they both lost a similar amount of weight, the fasting people lost 15% less muscle and more fat than the people calorie restricting.
You wanted the BEST way to strip your body of fat, especially belly fat. That's what it is. Use your fat as energy. Now other things you can do, cold exposure, ketogenic diet, make your own pre-workout, ( and do HIIT early morning. I'm going to explain quickly what these are for.
Cold Exposure: Being cold long enough to shiver for a while pre-disposes your body to create more brown fat, and will sometimes mobilize fats to become brown fats surrounding your organs. Brown fat pills are considered the gold standard of theoretical weight loss if we can ever master that chemical signaling because it is inefficient fat that burns itself off, so if we can escalate that process, we can make weight loss in a pill actually safely reasonable. Theoretically.
Ketogenic diet: predisposes your body to reach towards your fat stores, avoiding carbs as a primary fuel source. Your body also tends to brown more fat. On top of this there are numerous pathways and dozens of studies showing that when people consume higher levels of fat, and lower levels of carbs they burn more throughout the day, no matter what controls are put in place on almost every study I've seen. A lot of people thought it was because protein macros were being messed with but there was one study in peticular that kept the protein the same for all the groups and the groups that had more fat in their diet just burned through more calories. The study was controlled weightloss aiming for 2 pounds per week, and so the people eating high fat macros had to get their calories increased to keep them from losing fat too quickly.
Tumeric: This can either help brown your fat, or it can also mobilize your fat for fat burning. Of course if you take a gatorade to the gym you'll just shut off all fat burning, end up relying on muscle glycogen and liver glycogen instead.
Pre-workout: The video explains it. The reason you don't want to buy off the shelf pre-workout for the IDEAL fat loss, is that sweet things might trigger more insulin spikes, and the last thing you want to do before going to the gym for fat loss.
Gym: I use this word as a catch all. If you are bedridden and can't get out of bed, your bed is your gym. Any time I used the word gym substitute it for what ever place is giving you your exercise.
HIIT: High Intensity Interval Training, if you can do this, the metabolic increase you get throughout the day is worth it. It just flat out improves fat burning. Just don't do too much HIIT because multiple rounds of it causes cortisolhttps://www.bbc.com/news/health-47242940https://www.vogue.com.au/beauty/wellbeing/are-high-cortisol-levels-stopping-you-from-losing-weight/news-story/9d86b89ffa37e0945e330ed4c8e90b44
Also this bit
"Conversely, lowering your cortisol levels can help you achieve your weight loss goals. “Especially if you are following a low inflammation diet,” she says."
Ketogenic diets are low inflammation. You'll feel better if you focus on health. Keto is the healthiest diet I know of. Bar none. Don't get me started on anti-nutrients, oxolates, and other survival mechanisms that make largely plant based diets less bio available and healthy than say adding offal to a bio available fat and meat based diet.
