If you do not eliminate these habits, your belly fat will never disappear.
If you’ve already started to exercise and still do not see results, even though your routine is strong enough and you train at least 5 days a week, what you have to do is to revert your daily habits.
Abdominal fat is not only bothersome, but also dangerous to your health, because the type of fat that is housed in this area increases your chances of suffering from different diseases.
It is true that the exercises are a great help, but you have to accompany them with good habits and a healthy diet. You do not have to stay away from small cravings or desserts, but you should stop consuming sugar and fat daily to see real results.
Although reducing your belly fat is not an easy task, you may want to start by follow the next few steps.
1. Do not forget about probiotics
The intestinal flora plays a very important role in our weight. Probiotics like yogurt are very effective in keeping the "good" bacteria in balance. In this regard, a study concluded that, if there is an imbalance in the amount of each type of bacteria present there, there is more risk of obesity.
Try to organize the meals of your day, set a lunch schedule and respect it, and also prepare your meals at home. If you do not have the time to do it every day, at least try to buy your eatery’s healthiest daily "menu". If you have a plan about what you will eat the next day, you will reduce the risk of becoming ill.
3. Do not transform your emotions into hunger
Who has not found themselves eating a piece of cold pizza in the middle of the night? That is the purest manifestation of anxiety eating and, at some point in our lives, we have all been through it. Well, instead of eating because you're anxious or sad, look for other activities to change the way you feel; reassurance will be far more effective than eating when you do not need it.
4. Say no to sodas!
It is proven that sugary drinks are related to obesity, because of the high sugar content they possess. You will notice a huge difference once you replace the soda bottle with a water bottle.
5. Don’t sit down all day
As normal as it may seem, spending many hours sitting at your desk will not only be very harmful to your health, it will also make it much harder for you to lose weight. This is because the enzymes that burn fat begin to be less active. A short walk to the bathroom or to the coffee machine every couple of hours can make a difference.
6. Don’t skip meals
You've heard it too many times, but you cannot help it. You have a meal at work and forget it or, because you think it's the best way to lose weight, you continue to skip meals during the day. But if you do not eat throughout the day, not only will your metabolism slow down (which means you will burn fewer calories), but you will suffer a major hunger attack that will result in poor eating choices afterwards.
7. Ignore your constant need for something sweet (and caloric)
If you are not willing to cut down on the sugary desserts you consume every night, you will probably never see that abdominal fat leave your body. Although they are delicious, their high sugar content favors the lodging of fat in the abdomen. If you really need to eat something sweet after lunch and dinner, try replacing processed desserts with fruit.
