If you want to know the best way to lose belly fat, you need to consider what researchers have been telling us for many years. Eating a healthy, low-calorie diet is essential if you want to discover how to lose weight fast and effectively;
This is where JOURNALING is a must, because you’ve got to identify the foods that you could swap out for cleaner eating and eliminate the foods that are going to hold onto fat, such as sugar, processed foods that are loaded with chemicals that are going to hinder your results, artificial sweeteners, and those top two food groups that I talked about before, breads and dairy, especially pasteurized milk, a lot of milk products.
you’re going to start exercising. Don’t make this exercise too intense or you may fall off the bandwagon. Instead, try getting out each day for thirty minutes of walking or light jogging.
If you really dislike both of those exercises, choose something that you enjoy. Bike riding or swimming are both excellent choices and will help you lose belly fat quickly.
Losing weight is not a cakewalk (haha). If you’re used to hamburgers and french fries, then switching over to chicken breast and salad is not going to be easy. Fortunately, if you’ve taken my advice above, you’ll realize it’s a process. Maybe you can start adding more lettuce and backing off on the ketchup and mayo a little bit. You could start using whole grain buns and going with a baked potato instead of fries. These small changes will gradually build into big changes in your diet and exercise and one big change to your gut.
the next thing you’ll want to do is focus on adding more protein rich foods to your diet. This includes foods such as lean chicken breast meat, egg whites, low-fat dairy products, fish, as well as whey protein powder.
Why? To limit the storage of excess bad fat, which automatically leads to being overweight. How? Slow down on saturated fats (sausage, fried food, pastries …) and use oil (rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9), eat fish (even fat) steamed or smothered … Getting sufficient sleep is always a must. When we feel tired and stressed, we tend to eat and increases your appetite leading to overeating which can develop belly fat. More so, when you are stressed, your body releases a hormone called cortisol that aids in fat production. Healthy eating habits rather than fad diets will help you lose the weight permanently. This means incorporating lean meats, whole fruits and vegetables and low-fat dairy into your daily eating routine.
Aim to have at least 20-30 grams five times each day, especially with the first meal you eat. By getting your body off on the right foot in the morning, you will see results jump that much higher.
Then you’re going to reassess your goals and see what you’ve learned about your body and what you’ve been able to achieve, and then set new goals for the next four to six weeks. This is a process and it takes time, especially when we have these problem areas and we want to see things change, we want to see definition, we want something very noticeable.
