So, if you're trying to get rid of that fat belly, how can you do it? Whether you’ve accumulated extra belly fat through being neglectful of proper nutrition and exercise, child-bearing, or aging, I have a solution to help you lose fat. Keeping it straight and simple to combat abdominal fat vigorous physical activity for at least 30–60 minutes per day can help control weight and lose belly fat. Strength training exercising with weights may also help fight abdominal fat. Spot exercising, such as doing sit-ups, can tighten abdominal muscles, but it won't get at visceral fat. Running, swimming, yoga, and cycling are some fun-filled activities you can engage in to lose weight.
Diet is also important. Pay attention to portion size, and emphasize complex carbohydrates (fruits, vegetables, and whole grains) and lean protein over simple carbohydrates such as white bread, refined-grain pasta, and sugary drinks. Replacing saturated fats and trans fats with polyunsaturated fats can also help.
Below is a list of foods that is recommend eating
Foods like chicken, turkey, legumes, nuts, whole eggs, fish, and dairy products are great sources of protein, which keeps you full longer. It also helps you lose weight because a high-protein diet takes more energy for your body to digest, which in turn burns body fat.
Eating lots of fiber aids weight management and promotes weight loss, so eat more fiber-rich foods like almonds, oats, prunes, berries, broccoli, Brussel sprouts and green beans. Consuming fruits and vegetables that are rich in fiber is also associated with weight loss.
Drinking enough water boosts metabolism, which helps you lose weight. Lemon water, a common favorite, may aid weight loss if you use it to replace sugary drinks. However, it has no proven added benefits over regular water.
Africans often consume excess amounts of refined grains, such as white bread or white rice. To reduce and control body weight, it's much better to have a diet rich in whole or natural grains, like wheat, brown rice, barley, oats, and rye.
It’s important to select a sustainable diet and learn what foods work for you long-term versus a “quick fix”. I conclude by saying: “To reduce belly fat engage in regular physical activity, eat a healthy diet, and manage your stress levels. You'll need to reduce overall body fat to reduce belly fat, which can take several weeks for noticeable results.”
