8 scientifically-proven tips to reduce belly fat
Are you tired of looking at your paunch every day? Do you dream of wearing those bodies-hugging clothes to show off your fit body?
Belly fat also referred to as visceral fat, not only makes your clothes tight but is also a major risk factor for numerous diseases, especially diabetes and heart disorders. The reason is simple. Belly fat surrounds the organs in your stomach, unlike the subcutaneous fat which is stored under your skin and poses no danger health. Belly fat thus reduces the chances of survival in case of a stroke and hence is much more dangerous than you perceive.
Fortunately, there are plenty of ways that reduce belly fat and keep you healthy at the same time.
Yes, belly fat is stubborn and it’s not the easiest to lose, but always remember to stay committed to the process. When all else fails, you can always fall back on science.
Here are 6 ways to lose your belly fat:
1. Cut back on sugar and starch:
Added sugar definitely helps in taste but adds little nutrition to your diet. In fact, excess of it has its own share of harmful effects on metabolism. The excess fructose in refined sugar is converted
into belly fat.
Liquid sugar is worse. It doesn’t get registered by the brain, thereby increasing the amount of intake. If you are fond of cold-drinks, soda, and other sugary juices, mind you, it might be the
primary reason for your belly fat.
Various studies have suggested that sweetened beverages increases the risk of obesity in kids by 60%, for each serving.
2. Feast on proteins:
A Protein-rich diet has major benefits. First, it decreases your appetite and reduces your
hunger. Reduced hunger might on its own, reduce your calorie intake, thereby helping you reduce your belly fat. Secondly, a protein-rich diet burns around 80-100 calories per day. There are studies suggesting better results, as much as 250 calories per day, with overfeeding protein-rich diets.
Other studies have shown that belly fat has an inverse relation with protein protein-rich diets i.e. chances of having belly fat decreases with increased protein in your diet. You might want to include foods that burn belly fat and provide good protein such as meat, eggs, soya, dairy, or fish in your diet.
3. Eat fibre-rich food:
A Fiber fiber-rich diet which includes food like vegetables, fruits, and whole grains like oats and cereals can be effective in reducing belly fat. It helps in slowing down the digestion cycle. It promotes satiation, decreases the absorption of macro-nutrients and alters the secretion of gut hormones.
In short, it helps you in cutting down belly fat, increases your life span, helps you feel full and get away from many diseases,
4. Cut the Carbs::
Needless to say, if you want to get rid of the belly fat, you need to cut the carbs in your diet. Also, a low- carb diet works better compared to a low-fat diet. When researchers at Johns Hopkins compared a low-fat diet with a low-carb diet with both having the same amount of calories, it was noticed that the former produced better and more favorable results.
5. Make cardio your best friend::
It’s hard to wake up every morning and take out time for exercise. It’s perhaps harder to do the same after work, especially when you do not see yourself getting slimmer, but when it comes to reducing belly fat, cardio proves to be the most effective exercise.
Observational studies suggest that the frequency and duration of the exercise are more important than the intensity. So, don’t be disheartened if you don’t see immediate results. With consistency, you will definitely get results.
6. Drink water:
Chances are you are ignoring the effectiveness of water in your weight loss strategy. Drinking water accelerates your metabolism and helps to get rid of calories. Health authorities recommend drinking around 2 liters liters of water every single day. So, stay hydrated.
Gone are the days when you needed to starve yourself to reduce weight. With science and the advancement of technology, belly fat removal has become easy and quick. Here are some more advanced technological ways to reduce your stubborn belly fat quicker.
