If I have a glass of wine every night will I have a fat stomach? PLUS San Jose Elite Personal trainer Stephane shares her advanced abs workout for a tone tight stomach Print E-mail
Unfortunately wine drinking can cause belly fat and Personal trainer Melissa has noticed that most of her female and male clients who drink regularly do have fat stomachs themselves even though they exercise because alcohol causes fat to be stored around the internal organs which increases belly fat. These same wine drinkers also eat more carbs following a night of drinking. small_pictureSexy Personal trainer Melissa of Houston does not drink any alcohol herself partly because they are empty calories, partly because she is a trainer and partly because she does not like it. Her clients who like to drink have fatter bellies than non drinkers. The "empty" calories in alcohol provide no nutritional value and Melissa knows to eat exactly the way she instructs her clients to eat (and drink) so she does not drink. But now, new studies are supporting her rule of no drinking. These current studies have made it be known that drinking increases abdominal fat storage...the beer gut men and women have over time, develops because wine or beer drinking over time and promotes increased fat storage in the stomach or abdominal area. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7LpZkq0tQU This youtube video has a chest and back workout that shows Melissa/s tight abs.

In her years of experience as a Houston personal trainer, Melissa has come to see red flags when discussing weight loss goals with prospective clients. One such red flag is when a new Personal training client comments on how they drink glasses of wine EVERY night and how they do not wish to curtail that enjoyment. If a person is trying to lose belly fat, it is much better to drink one or two glasses of wine occasionally instead of drinking one glass every night. So if you are ready to curtail the drinking, then you can take an even bigger step by doing the below described ab workout.

"Insanity is doing things the same way but expecting different results" is a favorite quote Houston Personal Trainer Melissa shares with these individuals. The main reason drinkers HAVE abdominal fat is BECAUSE they have too many extra calories in the evening, that get stored as fat in the abdominal area, and several glasses of wine can be the very problem. An "occasional" glass of wine can be fine (once targeted goals have been achieved).Houston In Home Personal trainer Melissa suggests treating wine or any alcohol like a rich dessert that is not often indulged in. She has met with many prospective Personal Training clients over the years who have low body fat on their arms and legs but have lost their waistline. This can be very distressing for many otherwise fit workout people and the late evening drinking of wine or alcohol might be the reason. Instead of using alcohol to reduce stress, In home Houston personal trainer Melissa suggests going for an evening power walk or jog. Thats what she does..that is when she is not training someone at night~

Keep the workout going for six weeks and eat a twelve hundred calorie a day meal program which includes at least five servings of veggies and 1/2 ounce of water for every pound of body weight, and watch the abs get cut.
