Ways to Get Rid of Fat on a Stubborn Stomach
So healthier and more confident
Apart from being ‘disturbing’ in appearance, stubborn fat in the stomach also triggers various health risks, especially regarding cardiovascular issues. To get rid of this pile of fat and make you feel more comfortable, confident, and healthy, here are some ways you can do it according to the experts!
1. Get used to walking every day
If you are too busy to do regular exercise at the gym or even at home, always include walking as your daily habit. A study published in The Jounal of Exercise Nutrition & Biochemistry found that an obese woman who did a walk program three times a week, for a total duration of 50 to 70 minutes for 12 weeks, lost significantly more belly fat.
2. Say goodbye to stress
Stress can mess with every part of your body, both mentally and physically. Therefore, instead of venting stress with food, alcohol, and others, it’s better to first find sources of stressors and solutions to overcome them.
3. Start diligently consuming fiber
If you are looking for foods that can really make you full longer and healthier, fiber which can be found in wheat, vegetables, fruits, nuts, oats , and so on is the solution you need. Conversely, foods with high levels of carbohydrates and sugar will only make you hungry faster and lead to weight that will not lose.
4. Start muscle strength training
Especially if you want stubborn fat around the stomach to disappear in the long run, then muscle strength training is the optimal option. The reason is, this activity will form your muscles and replace body fat and speed up the metabolic process.
5. Eating protein, especially before exercising
Not only does it keep you full longer, protein also helps make muscles stronger and bigger and pushes fat out. As a guide, you can consume about 70 grams of protein throughout the day.
6. Start prioritizing sleep
If the quantity and quality of your sleep has not been optimal, start to improve it. Sleeping too long will make the body lazier, while sleeping too little at night will actually trigger you to eat more.
7. Cook your own food
Researchers in the UK found that individuals who ate homemade food more than five times a week were more likely to have a higher BMI. In addition, individuals who cook their own food also have several other healthy habits such as exercising more and using healthy ingredients such as vegetables and fruit.
Of course, all of these activities take time to show results. Therefore, even though it’s hard at the beginning, make sure you stay disciplined and routine in doing it, huh!
