It happens to us all at some stage in our lives. You happen to glance at yourself in the mirror and notice that your belly is getting bigger and you stand there pulling it in to make yourself look thinner. But then you breathe out and it all falls down again. That is usually the time you decide that getting rid of stomach fat is going to be your aim from then on.
When this happens to you then you will no doubt start searching for tips on losing stomach fat. You may find some good advice but there is also a lot of bad information out there, so you need to be very diligent. Doing lots of sit ups for instance will not make you lose belly fat. All it does is strengthen your ab muscles, it won’t burn fat.
The only way to get rid of stomach fat is to reduce your overall body fat percentage. You cannot focus on one area because it is impossible to choose which area you lose fat from. So you need a good combination of diet and exercise to ensure that weight loss starts and you will lose weight from various areas of your body.
Your diet is a very easy thing to manage. Just eat smaller meals that are well balanced in protein, fibre and other nutrients. You should try and cut down your carb intake and keep your calories to a lower level. Avoid all junk food and fast food and that should be enough for your diet to be healthy.
Exercise is also an easy thing to begin. Just try an aerobic exercise such as walking, running or cycling. Do it 3-4 times a week for 20-30 minutes and you will begin to lose fat from all over your body.
These tips may sound simple but getting rid of stomach fat is not difficult at all. Just burn more calories than you are consuming.
