Doing only sit-ups and crunches can actually cause the appearance of more belly fat, as the abdominal muscles grow in size and shape, they will push out against the fat, making it appear larger and thicker. Instead, aim for a combination of cardio and weights.
Without a doubt, diet is the most important component for losing belly fat. Not the latest workout fad. Not some powder, pill, or other supplement. Diet is the key to getting rid of your belly. It’s one thing to know that diet is key, but it’s another thing to know exactly what to eat. Below are 12 foods that you can’t go wrong with when trying to lose belly fat:
3. Twist: One foot placed slightly in front of the other with body facing the corner. This should resemble the movement of wringing a towel while taking knees further “inward” and opening body in the opposite direction.

Many people fail to realize that exercise can have a pronounced effect on your hormone production, naturally raising sex hormones and HGH, for example, which can have a more or less direct bearing on weight management.
Sometimes you need a stress-reducing shortcut. You can trick your body into relaxing with an aromatherapy inhaler, which you can use the second you feel stressed. The brain quickly processes smells, which hit the amygdala, the area of your brain responsible for anxiety. Scents like eucalyptus, lavender and bergamot can help shut down stress.
It is a fact that most of the restaurants, and not just the fast food ones, use too much oil and materials that are full of calories and other substances that are bad for you. Eat less in restaurants or choose the one wisely.
Focus on cardiovascular exercise. Cardiovascular exercise is one of the best ways to lose weight. Studies show that cardiovascular exercise like walking, jogging, and running is highly effective at any degree of intensity. That’s because cardio/aerobic exercise works the muscles in your arms, legs, and hips, and increases blood flow to all sets of muscles. Effective cardio exercises include:
Start each day by making a large pitcher of “spa water”—that’s detox water filled with sliced whole lemons, oranges or grapefruits—and make a point of sipping your way through at least 8 glasses before bedtime. Citrus fruits are rich in the antioxidant delimonene, a powerful compound found in the peel that stimulates liver enzymes to help flush toxins from the body and gives sluggish bowels a kick, according to the World Health Organization.
What i’m really frustrated about is that I still have a little bit of stomach fat and fat around my upper thighs and waist/hips. It’s mostly around my ribs/stomach area. I’m so sick of it by now and I doesn’t seem to go away no matter what I do. In desperation, about 6 months ago I started eating 300-400 cals a day and tracking my calories. I lost some weight, mostly water weight, and I felt horrible of course.I realize that that was horrible, but I was just so tired of looking the way that I do. I’ve finally stopped counting calories about a week ago and I’m eating around 1200 calories now, more or less. I really don’t know what else to do, I just really want to lose some weight and feel better about my body. If anybody could give me some advice, I’d really appreciate it. Thanks:)
Don’t go by the sweet taste of cinnamon, it won’t increase your fat. In fact, cinnamon will help reduce your overall body fat including the belly fat. Cinnamon is a thermogenic. It means, cinnamon tends to produce heat through metabolic stimulation. Thus cinnamon makes you burn your fat. So, include 1 tsp. of ground cinnamon to your daily diet in order to increase your metabolism. Take ground cinnamon and not the cinnamon bark oil which may lead to ulcers, mouth sores and mouth burning when consumed. Cinnamon is one spice that you can cook with any food.
Cook meals at home when possible, and use olive oil or cooking spray rather than butter. When eating out, opt for protein-rich foods over starchy foods like pasta. Ask for dressings and sauces on the side to cut down on extra calories.
Hi Mike! You’ve said before that you can lose fat without cardio (albeit more slowly), although you will need cardio to get single digit lean. I was just curious why that is? Wouldn’t you theoretically keep losing fat if you maintain a deficit and are diligent with your weight training? Is the reason because eventually your metabolism would slow down too much? And cardio helps prevent that?
So even though this is my 8th week of “cutting” you suggest i still stay in a deficit longer? even though i haven’t been perfect with my targets I’ve still been in a deficit so i don’t know how much longer i should keep going before damaging my metabolism.
Having excess fat in your abdominal area comes with a lot of health challenges. So whenever you notice your belly fat is in excess, you should take steps to get rid of it. A healthy lifestyle, eating right, drinking a lot of water and exercising regularly are ways to reduce belly fat.
If you do not sleep enough, your metabolism slows down. On top of that, if you are tired your body needs compensation. And how we compensate ourselves? We start eating or drinking something sweet or munch on a packet of chips.
