Losing belly fat is one of the most common fitness goals, but the vast majority of people go about it the wrong way. Doing just sit-ups to exhaustion is not going to flatten out your belly, and going back and forth between diets is not going to do you any favours, either. You can’t spot reduce fat on the body, you can tone specific muscle groups but you can’t lose fat from any one particular area. You have to lose fat all over, and that takes a combination of things; cardio, total body strength training, and healthy eating. This short but effective cardio and core blend is great for getting your heart rate up and you won’t need any equipment for this routine.
A lean belly diet is one that has fresh fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, nuts, lean meats, and fish making up the bulk of your meals. Avoid fake sweeteners, all “diet” products, packaged “health” foods (i.e. energy bars, frozen meals, drinks that are jam packed with preservatives, additives, sodium, and who knows what else), and basically be careful of anything that comes in a package. Make sure you are not taking in more calories than you are burning in order to keep your weight in check.
