Belly fat is infuriating. It is obnoxiously persistent and acts as a constant reminder every time you slide on your skinny jeans that your fitness goals (from the past five years) have yet to be met.While there is no easy way to get rid of it, these points are proven to help fight fat in the best ways possible.
1. Wake up at the same time every morning
It sounds crazy, but it works a great deal. My two cousins are evident this work well.
2. Get enough sleep
Healthy adults need about seven to nine hours of sleep each night. Not sleeping long enough builds fat up around your organs
3. Prioritize yoga and meditation
Yoga and meditation are stress relievers, and lowering stress is vital to keeping your body healthy. Stress can make you gain weight, because it heightens a hormone called cortisol. In the long run, cortisol increases your appetite and makes your body crave sugary, fatty foods.
4. Embrace unsaturated fat
Unsaturated fats come from seeds, nuts, fish, avocado and vegetable oils.
5. Eat plenty of (the right) fiber
You’ve heard you should eat plenty of fiber, but taking a fiber pill likely won’t cut it. Your body needs both soluble and insoluble fibers. The best fibers for weight loss are fiund in foods like beans and oats. These help you lose fat because you feel full longer, which prevents you from eating more.
6. Choose the right type of exercise
Sit-ups are great at tightening your abdomen, but it won’t get rid of your belly fat. You need a mix of cardio workouts (like running) and strength training (like planks) for at least 30 minutes a day. Strength training increases your muscle mass, which helps your body burn fat.
7. Cut refined sugar
Refined sugar floods the liver with fructose, which forces the liver to turn it into fat.The World Health Organization recommends 25 grams of sugar per day for someone on a 2,000 calorie diet. To put this into perspective, 1 can of soft drink is about 39 grams of sugar.
