We prepared the best tips on how to lose belly fat especially for you. Read to lean more about the fat our body stores and how to get rid of it.
The good news: Everyone has some belly fat, even people who have flat abs.
Some of your fat is right under your skin. Other fat is deeper inside, around your heart, lungs, liver, and other organs.
This type of fat, called visceral fat, increases your stress hormones like cortisol and inflammatory substances called cytokines that affect the body’s production of insulin. This could mean an increased risks of type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, dementia, and heart disease.
If you have a lot of excess fat around your waistline, even if you’re not very heavy, then you should take some steps to get rid of it. For your health’s sake, you want your waist size to be less than 35 inches if you’re a woman and less than 40 inches if you’re a man.
Having a “pear shape” – bigger hips and thighs – is considered safer than an “apple shape,” which describes a wider waistline.
1. NEVER STOP MOVING

2. CHOSE YOUR FAT
Switching from saturated fat (animal fat products – cream, cheese, butter, other whole milk dairy products and fatty meats) that contributes to more visceral fat to polyunsaturated fat found in nuts, seeds, fish, algae, leafy greens.
3. SLEEP ON IT
7 to 8 are the magical numbers! That is how many hour of sleep you should aim to get every night to promote losing belly fat.
4. GO GREEN
Whether is the green leafy veggies or green tea you will do yourself a favour. Green tea is full of antioxidants, and along with exercise can boost your (belly) fat loss.
5. FIBER UP
Getting enough fiber can help. As little as eating 10 grams of soluble fiber (oats, barley, nuts, seeds, beans, lentils, peas) per day builds up less visceral fat over time.
