10 Easy Ways For Shedding Belly Fat
Your goal may be to look fantastic while walking on the beach, but there are better reasons for shedding the extra fat around your stomach – your health tops the list.
It takes more than 100 crunches daily to shed belly fat. Use the 10 suggestions below and you will be on your way to a flatter belly and a healthier you before you know it.
1. Change your diet
There is nothing good about belly fat. Even if you’re in relatively good shape, a bulging midsection can make you look older and flabbier. However, our bodies are biologically engineered to store fat at our waistlines, and getting rid of that last bulge can be difficult.
Dieting is a big part of the solution, of course. When you lose weight by consuming less calories and lowering your sugar consumption, you will lose weight everywhere (including around your belly).
Eliminate foods such as sweeteners, refined sugars, carbonated drinks, fried foods, pastries, alcohol, dairy products, white flour and white rice from your diet.
Stay away from cereals as they’re usually loaded with extra sugar. If you find a whole grain cereal, make sure to stick to a single serving size with low-fat milk, and resist the temptation to add sugar.
Load up on flat-belly foods, including lean proteins, cherries, berries, green tea, healthy fats, beans, and potassium-rich foods like bananas, avocados, sweet potatoes, and spinach.
Changing your diet goes a long way, but targeted exercise programs are crucial as well. You’ll see in the following slides that a targeted program can help you to burn belly fat at a much faster rate.
