We all want to live a happy life. This includes having a perfect body. This will also mean eliminating the belly which, naturally comes from taking certain foods as well as having some types of lifestyle. Now that it is there, here are some tips on how to fight this lingering problem:
Don’t skip breakfast:
It is called breakfast because throughout the night, you technically were fasting. Break the fast and rejuvenate the body. It is therefore considered the most important meal of the day. You need an energy-boosting food or drink.
Take in lots of water and calorie-free beverages. If you are not a fan of plain water, try citrus juice with low amounts of sugar.
This has been discussed in a previous post. Enough sleep is good for the human body. With seven or eight hours of sleep daily, you are good to go
Take your gossip session on a walk:
Why don’t you plan for that reunion with friends or family over a walk? You will be working out while on the go. Bond with other friends over a walk while you are burning some fat in the process.
- Less-calorie foods
If this was a mathematical equation,
Less Calories = Less Fat
To lose the belly fat, consume less-calorie foods. This will also help manage your weight. Add boiled foods to your diet and avoid sweet foods as well as those fried or rich in fats.
- Healthy fats
This is contradictory, right? Yeah, don’t take fats, but take in fats…healthy fats. These include avocados, walnuts, and olive oil. They are rich in omega-3s and will help fight the bad fats.
- Green tea:
Besides reducing your risk of cancer and heart diseases, green tea helps the whole body. Catechins and antioxidants in the green tea have been found to reduce belly fat. Sip some before a workout; it will help in burning fat during aerobics exercise
Your body requires more protein for energy than it requires carbohydrates and fats. Taking in proteins will lower your intake of other foods.
- Taking soda and/or alcohol
As discussed in a previous post, the break-down of soda (sugar) and alcohol in the body is almost similar. They end up giving you the belly fat as well as VLDL, while making you add weight. This is because they are both packed with empty calories and sugars that give the body a hard time.
Dry red wine, however, can help in burning tummy fat. It contains resveratrol that lowers the fat cell development around the waist and makes metabolism faster.
- White bread
Bread makes you fat!!
Bread as well as other highly-refined foods are top contenders for you packing that midsection fat. Avoid (white) bread at all costs
Make time for cardio workout. Cardio workout is an effective way of burning belly fat. A Duke University research reports that aerobic are the most effective exercises when it comes to burning belly fat.
Grab a hoola hoop and flatten that tummy. Whirling a hoola hoop is another effective method of exercising out the fat.
Finally, remember to wake up and workout. Workout or at least 30 minutes after waking up.
Stay healthy, stay fit!
