How to Lose Inches Off Your Waist - Easy Inch Loss Tips

Let's be honest... the majority of us could stand to lose a few inches off of our waist. But the question is what is the best way to lose those unwanted waist inches?

The best way to lose inches off your waist is to take a multifaceted approach. I do not suggest using only one technique, simply because using multiple techniques has been proven to be so much more efficient.

Let me tell you straight off the bat that although you may be tempted to do hundreds of sit-ups each day, this is not going to help you lose those waist inches!
The quickest and most effective way is a three step approach:
#1: Try an inch loss stomach wrap
This will not only cause an immediate inch loss but may further promote a long term loss of weight. These wraps can be simple to perform, and can be done at a local spa or at home with household ingredients.
#2: A well balanced calorie restricted diet
A very important step for losing waist inches is that you need to eat healthy foods, but you also need to take in fewer calories than you burn every day. The amount of calories you need is different for everyone but a good bench mark is consuming around 300 calories under your resting metabolic rate (RMR).
#3: Exercise 4 or more times each week
This one is pretty simple. Be active! Be as active as you can every day. You are not expected to train like an Olympic athlete, but what you need to do is be physically active for 30-60 minutes for most days of the week. Physical activity helps to burn calories and improves circulation; this in turn will increase fat loss, helping to lose inches on your waist.

Whatever you do in terms of cardiovascular exercise will work well for this. Some good activities are walking and cycling or even swimming.
Any type of resistance training is also useful. This will help burn calories as well as increase your RMR, because more muscle tissue means you burn more calories while at rest.

The bottom line
So in order to drop a dress size in a week, then your only option is the stomach wrap. But in order to make this change long term you need to combine stomach wraps, a healthy diet and regular exercise, this is the way to go to lose waist inches.
