Conversely, many normal weight people have the metabolic problems associated with obesity, and so overweight does not necessarily equal to be unhealthy.There are actually plenty of overweight people who are in excellent health.
Its the fat in the abdominal cavity, the belly fat, that causes the biggest issue
Here are some ways to lose belly fat.
1. Eat foods rich in fiber
The best way to get more fiber is to eat a lot of plant foods like vegetables and fruit. Legumes are also a good source, as well as some cereals like oats.
2.Don’t eat sugar and avoid sugar sweetened drinks
Sugar is half glucose, half fructose, and fructose can only be metabolized by the liver in any significant amount.
3. Eating more protein
It’s a great long term strategy to reduce belly fat
Protein is the most important macronutrient when it comes to losing weight.
One study showed that the amount and quality of protein consumed was inversely related to fat in the belly. That is, people who ate more and better protein had much less belly fat.
4.Track your foods history.
What you eat is important. Pretty much everyone knows this.
People think theyre eating high protein and low carb or whatever, but tend to drastically over or underestimate
5. Cut carbs from your diet
Carb restriction is a very effective way to lose fat. Just avoiding the refined carbs (white breads, pastas, etc) should be sufficient, especially if you keep your protein high.
6. Exercise is very effective at reducing belly fat
Exercise is important for various reasons. It is among the best things you can do if you want to live a long, healthy life and avoid disease.
Exercise also leads to reduced inflammation, blood sugar levels and all the other metabolic abnormalities that are associated with central obesity.
