Six Ways To Lose Belly Fat!
Can you actually target belly fat? According to Jorge Cruise, author of The Belly Fat Cure, you can. Surprisingly, in a six week study, exercise that targeted the abdomen only, had no effect on lowering waist size or reducing belly fat per the NIH.
Most experts seem to agree that the following six tips will help you to lose weight and belly fat.
#1: Eat more fiber. A study shows that adding 14 grams of fiber per day reduced weight by about 4.5 pounds in 4 months. What fiber does is help you to feel fuller longer.
#2: Exercise. Exercise burns calories which contributes to weight loss. Swimming, running, and walking are excellent exercises to reduce belly fat, per the National Institute of Health.
#3: Eat less sugar. Sugar and added sugar is not healthy. Sugar not only adds calories, it slows our metabolism.
#4: Eat more protein. Eating more protein is a long established method for losing weight.
#5: Lower your carbs. Cutting your intake of carbohydrates, helps reduce your appetite, and ultimately your waistline. Limiting carbs is proven to be 2-3 times more effective than lowering fat. Lowering carbs also results in water loss, so results are almost immediate. Lowering carbs is thought to specifically target losing belly fat.
#6: Keep Track. People who track what they eat , lose more weight.
