Excess belly fat is neither healthy nor does it enhance your appearance. In fact, belly fat that’s deep inside you, is associated with an increased risk of health problems, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, dementia, high blood pressure, and some cancers. To rectify the situation, many go on diets. And if you stay with it, you will see results when you weigh yourself. Moreover, when you start losing weight, belly fat usually goes away first. But it’s hard to stay on a diet. To be successful needs a lot of discipline.
A better approach is to use a combination of methods. First of all, go on a diet that is healthy for your body. Eat the right foods. Next increase your activity level by aerobic exercises such as walking. If you are able to, strengthen your muscles. The greater the muscle mass the more fat gets burned even when you are not working out. Also, get adequate sleep and reduce your stress. Moreover, if you haven’t done so yet, stop smoking. And reduce your alcohol consumption. Finally, it is best to not pick and choose techniques but rather make room for all of them in your lifestyle. The infographic showcases these techniques.
