10. Avoid Sugar and Junk

How to Lose Belly Fat
Excess sugar in the body greatly contributes to build up of fat around the belly area. If you are looking to lose this fat, then stay clear of sugar. Ensure also you limit your intake of junk foodand soft drinks. They contain loads of added sugar (which equates to lots of calories) that is later converted into fat around the liver and belly. The result is insulin resistance in the body and a number of other metabolic problems. In no time, conditions such as obesity and diabetes start to knock and you wonder why. It doesn’t mean that you should give up on these treats entirely rather moderation is crucial.

9. Cut Your Carbohydrates Intake

High Carb Foods
Logic will tell you that if you minimize your carbohydrates intake overtime, then your appetite decreases in equal measure. This will be followed by weight loss. According to research, a low carbohydrate diet has been shown to reduce fat especially targeting the one around the belly area. However, ensure you avoid refined carbohydrates.

8. Take A High Fiber Diet Often

Assortment of High Fiber Foods
Soluble dietary fiber has been shown to reduce belly fat. It may however not help much with your overall body fat. The good thing is that it can be found in most plant based foods such asvegetables and fruits. Legumes and cereals are also great sources.

7. Engage in Regular Exercise

Yoga Exercises That Help You Lose Belly Fat
Note it won’t be effective if you do it sitting. Get up and get moving. That way you end up burning more calories than you would when sitting. Aerobic exercises (walking, cycling) are especially good for this.

5. Reduce the Size of the plate

Top 10 Tips to Lose Belly Fat
Using smaller plates reduces the urge to put excess food in a single serving. With a small plate, no matter how much you put on the plate, in real sense it will be little.

4. Avoid Skipping Meals

eat at regular times
Skipping meals leads your body into a starvation mode that cheats the body to store unnecessary fat. The body breaks down muscle tissues for energy and at the same time conserves fat. Ensure that you eat at regular times without having to starve your body.

3. Drink Water Before Meals

1. Always Stay Motivated

Motivate yourself for a daily workout

Also, understanding the risks associated with belly fat and why you need to lose belly fat can keep you motivated.
