How Long It Takes To Lose An Inch Off Your Waist

According to my experience it takes 1kg to lose 1 cm off your waist. This means that it would take around 5lbs or 2.4kg to lose an inch. Most of the time this rule stands true. 


Q: What is the fastest way to lose belly fat?

A: The fastest way to lose belly fat is to go on a high protein, low fat, low carb diet. However keep in mind that this is brutality and not easy.

Q: Should I do core specific exercises ?

A: I don't see why you would do that. Obviously you can train your "core" but don't expect to speed up the process that way. It's all about losing weight.

Q: How long it takes to lose an inch off my waist?

A: Around 2 weeks if you go on a strict low calorie diet. You should be losing 2lbs/1kg a week. This requires you to consume 7 000 calories less than you burn in one week. 

Q: Should I keep my training the same when cutting?

A: No, cut volume and just train heavy 2 times a week. Do only compound exercises and go home.

A: You can add a few days of cardio but in the end of the day it's the diet that makes the difference.
