Why is belly fat stubborn?
Well, primarily because there are way more fat cells in that area per square inch than any other part of your body. That means you store more fat around your stomach as compared to other areas and thus it takes more time and effort to cut it down.
Another reason for the stubbornness of belly fat is its response to fat release signals. The fat cells in this area have what is called as ”alpha receptors” instead of ”beta receptors” that release fat faster.
So, how to get rid of the belly fat?
Melting down the belly fat is a little tricky process. There are a handful of things that need to go hand in hand in cohesion. Simply sticking to a workout routine or a diet may not yield the desired results. The regimen should in fact be an optimized combination of the two. And that’s what we have here for you. Follow the below directions for at least a month to get obvious results.
1. Eat a lot of soluble dietary fiber
Dietary fiber (soluble fiber) absorbs water and forms a gel that helps slow food while passing through the digestive system. Studies show that this type of fiber promotes weight loss by helping you feel satiety, improves digestion and helps burn fat.
Among the sources of soluble dietary fiber are:
2. Stay away from fast foods
Stay away from foods that contain trans fats, and are found in margarine, biscuits, cakes, frozen pancakes, ready-made baked goods, frozen pizza and fast food.
These fats are associated with inflammation, heart diseases, increased insulin resistance (which increases the risk of diabetes) and the acquisition of abdominal fat..
3. Eat more proteins
Eating more proteins, as many studies show that those who increase protein intake tend to have less fat in the abdomen than those who eat a diet containing less protein.
Protein intake reduces appetite and promotes a feeling of fullness, also increases the metabolic rate and helps to retain muscle mass during weight loss, that is, you burn fat, not your useful muscles.
Good sources of protein are:
Red meat from which fat has been removed.
Pulses like beans, beans, lentils.
4. Cut short on daily calorie intake
Foods that are rich in carbs supply instant energy. That means you are more likely to eat many times a day. Eat foods that are low in calories so that the body burns stored fat to fulfill its energy needs. Low-calorie foods are also often more nutritious than high-calorie.
5. Reduce stress level
Stress can make you gain weight by stimulating the adrenal glands to produce cortisol, also known as stress hormone. Researches suggest that high levels of cortisol increase appetite and lead to the storage of abdominal fat.
To help reduce stress practiced relaxing exercises, engage in fun family activities to unload physical strain and mental stress.
6. Aerobic exercises are a must
Aerobic exercises (cardio) are an effective way to improve health and burn calories. Exercises as simple as running can help you lose tons in a short span of time. Other exercises include swimming and bicycling.
7. Practice at-home no equipment workouts
No equipment exercises are a great way to burn excess fat. These exercises don’t require you to get a gym membership either. Do these at-home workouts for effective weight loss at home.
8. Get enough sleep
Get a lot of sleep, as studies show that those who do not get enough sleep tend to gain more weight, which may include abdominal fat.
Even if you eat proteins and melted fibers, but did not reduce the total calorie intake and make it less than the body’s need, you will not get rid of the rumen.
9. Consume Apple Cider Vinegar
Try adding apple cider vinegar to your diet, it contains acetic acid that may reduce the storage of abdominal fat, studies indicate that eating a spoon to two tablespoons (15-30 ml) of apple cider vinegar per day, may lead to a slight loss of fat, however be sure to dilute it with water, as vinegar is not Diluted can lead to tooth erosion.
Apple vinegar alone does not dissolve grease or burn fat rumen and abdomen, and you have to combine it with reducing calories and eating healthy food and exercise. Apple cider vinegar won’t help you if you’re eating a big bag of chips!
10. Replace your coffee with green tea
Drinking green tea containing catechin substances, which many studies suggest may help to lose abdominal fat. The effect can be enhanced when consumption of green tea is combined with exercise.
