Why? Because marketers know how much stock women put into builds that have the sleek, taut, lean Hollywood look.
Chicks are drawn to guys with ab definition and an overall fit, athletic build. They are adamant about NOT wanting bulky guys who look like they take steroids through a fire hose.
Instead, they desire men who look like Olympic athletes, professional soccer players, and movie stars like Matthew McConaughey.
If you watch late night infomercials for even a few minutes, you'll be exposed to a variety of "secret" ways to lose belly fat. It's all nonsense, guys.
The only proven way to lose belly fat and get rid of your love handles is to train like an athlete...meaning you'll be serious about three things: (1)Establishing a calorie deficit to reduce your percent body fat (2) Get on a strength training program that emphasizes muscle mass workouts to increase your lean muscle tissue, and (3) Incorporating sprint/interval training much like a player in the NFL does in the off-season.
Why are women drawn to cut male abs, anyways?
Like it or not, women form opinions of our character based on our fitness.
It doesn't matter if a soft-looking guy with the start of a beer belly is a ball-buster in the corporate sector pulling down $250K. To them, he LOOKS like some pudgy momma's boy with zero self-discipline and no follow-through.
When they see a guy who looks "tight", they figure he's a heroic hombre that is not afraid of hard work, will protect her in any situation, and will satisfy her into exhaustion every night.
Is it unfair? Without a doubt...but, it is what it is. It pretty much sets you up to Go Hard or Go Home.
The Navy Seals have an engraving outside their training center that says: "The cowards never got started and the weak died along the way".
That pretty much sums it up when it comes to achieving your goals of fat loss so you can compete in the arena women have built.
I'm not talking about lifting and running your way into exhaustion, or going on some idiotic Spartan starvation diet. I'm talking about buying into a program that you can sustain for at least a year to eliminate belly fat, gain lean muscle, and make those results permanent.
The ways to burn belly fat and get desirable male abs are simple, just re-read them above. However, you cannot achieve them drinking fruity shakes or putting in 10 minutes a day on the newest "Ab Lounger." You are going to have to train like an athlete and use an athlete's mentality to keep you motivated.
