When losing weight, it seems that the fat around your belly is the last to go and it’s very discouraging. I’m going to give you a few tips to help reduce it. First thing to do is measure your waist. A measurement of more than 35 inches (women) and 40 inches (men) is considered to be unhealthy.
Aerobic exercise is key.
You want to make sure you focus on calorie burning exercises. Sit-ups and crunches is not the way to go to reduce belly fat. If there is fat covering your abdominal, strength exercises won’t change that.
This is kind of a no brainer. Without reducing your calorie intake, you won’t have a chance in losing your belly fat. Get rid of the refined grains and replace them with whole grains, absolutely no trans fats, and keep up on your fiber intake which can reduce the presence of cortisol in the stomach.
Water can increase your metabolism and also helps curb your appetite. Dehydration will decrease blood volume, which reduces the amount of oxygen supply to our muscle leading to tiredness. This leads us to think that we are weak, so we may increase the intake of food.
Take your time.
You must realize that losing the fat around your abdominal area takes time. Most people fail at losing it because they don’t see results within the first couple days, so they lose hope. Set a reasonable goal and follow it, over time you will see your belly shrink.
Eat less more often.
Eating less more often can help raise your metabolism and can help reduce your appetite. When you eat 3 meals a day, you are storing calories you don’t use, which can turn to fat. It’s better to break up the calories you eat into 5 or 6 meals.
There is no magic diet pill that will make your belly fat go away. But taking amino acids, calcium, and vitamin D will help reduce belly fat and tighten loose skin. Always check with your doctor before taking supplements.
Give up on sugar drinks.
Removing soda and other sugar drinks will help you reduce belly fat greatly. Even common vitamin water drinks have been discovered to be very high in sugar and calories, so try to stick with water as your main hydrator.
