Being overweight doesn’t mean that you are unhealthy. Similarly, people with normal weight have metabolic problems related to obesity. The main problem is in the fat that is in the abdominal cavity; that is, the belly fat. Here are some simple tips for getting rid of that extra belly fat.
Avoid sugar and sugar-sweetened beverages. Added sugar is very unhealthy. Sugar consists of half glucose and half fructose. Only liver can metabolize fructose. When more sugar is eaten, the liver doesn’t have the capacity to metabolize so much sugar, so it turns them into fat. Sugar is a major cause of belly fat. Liquid sugar is worse. So, completely eliminate sugary drinks.
Eat More Protein
Protein helps in losing weight. Protein reduces cravings by 60% and increases metabolism by 80-100 calories per day. This lets you eat 441 less calories per day. You should add more protein to your diet. This helps you lose weight and also stops from putting on weight again. People who eat more protein have less belly fat. So, you should eat eggs, seafood, fish, meats, poultry and dairy products.
Reduce Curbs from Diet
If you cut down your carbs, then appetite decreases and so you lose weight. Low carb-diet results in 2-3 times more loss in weight compared to low fat diets. Low-carb diets provide quick reduction in water weight. Avoid eating white breads, pasta, etc.
Eat Fiber-Rich Food
Eating lots of fiber can help you lose belly fat. 14 grams of fiber intake per day can reduce 10% calorie intake so you will lose 2 kg over 4 months. You should eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Cereals like oats are also good source of fibers.
Aerobic exercises like running, walking, swimming, etc. are very effective in reducing belly fat. These also prevent putting on weight again.
Follow these 5 tips and you will lose your belly fat within months. Make these a habit. You might find it difficult at the beginning, but you will soon get used to it. By maintaining this routine you will get your desired flat belly in a very short time.
