How Long Does It Take to Lose Belly Fat With Cardio?
Now that you know cardio can help you burn belly fat and your options for cardio workouts, you may be wondering how long it will take to see results. According to Jason, it's going to come down to your nutrition.
To maximise fat loss, Jason said you should eat in a moderate caloric deficit, about 20 percent below your daily caloric needs. There are various ways to find out how many calories you need to consume in a day such as doing a resting metabolic rate test or using a calculation like the Harris-Benedict formula.
"You should expect to see people lose anywhere from a 0.5 to a pound a week. Someone who is significantly overweight could initially lose 1.5 to two pounds a week," Jason said.
Remember, these are general recommendations which means you may have to play around with what works best for you. Before making any changes to your nutrition, be sure to consult your doctor and a registered dietitian.
