Belly fat is not just a problem because it can look bad. In fact, having lots of fat in the abdominal area is strongly linked to diseases like type 2 diabetes and heart disease. For this reason, losing belly fat has massive benefits for your health and can help you live longer.


If you have a lot of excess fat around your waistline, then you should take some steps to get rid of it even if you’re not very heavy overall. Here are 5 proven ways to lose belly fat:

  1. Avoid Food and Drinks Containing Sugar- Added sugar is very unhealthy.Studies show that it has uniquely harmful effects on metabolic health. Make a decision to minimize the amount of sugar in your diet, and consider completely eliminating sugary drinks. This includes sugar-sweetened beverages, sugary sodas, fruit juices and various high-sugar sports drinks.

  2. Include Protein in your Diet- Protein is the most important macronutrient when it comes to losing weight. It has been shown to reduce cravings by 60%, boost metabolism by 80-100 calories per day and help you eat up to 441 fewer calories per day. If weight loss is your goal, then adding protein is perhaps the single most effective change you can make to your diet.
  3. Cut Carbs From your Food- Carb restriction is a very effective way to lose fat. This is supported by numerous studies. When people cut carbs, their appetite goes down and they lose weight. Just avoiding the refined carbs (sugar, candy, white bread, etc) should be sufficient, especially if you keep your protein intake high.

4.Reduce your Stress Levels- Stress can make you gain belly fat by triggering the adrenal glands to produce cortisol, also known as the “stress hormone.” Research shows high cortisol levels increase appetite and drive abdominal fat storage. To help reduce belly fat, engage in pleasurable activities that relieve stress. Practicing yoga or meditation can be effective methods.
