Hi Nicky! My name is Nik, and I am a groom-to-be, so we're forum twins!
And I'm trying to flatten out some stubborn belly fat over the next several weeks as the countdown to D-Day continues.
I'd say about 80% of fat loss in general has to do with getting your diet tightened up, so start there.
1) eat real food - more vegetables, moderate meat, moderate fruits, less grains, less sugar, less vegetable oils.
2) exercise - moderate intensity cardio, sprinting, heavy lifting, dedicated stretching and mobility.
3) live - relax, de-stress, meditate.
