How to lose belly fat naturally?

From Yahoo Answers: :)

Jogging is an excellent exercise because it let you lose weight evenly throughout.


Your whole body. Also, if you want to lose weight in specific areas.

Then it would help if you targeted them with exercise.

If they are your problem areas, they will be tough to tone. You will have to work double on them.


The best approach is this:

1. Lower/control your daily calorie intake (control for normal
weight, lower for overweight).

2. Run/jog to lower your overall body fat percentage.

3. Target your problem areas with exercises. Hence an excellent exercise you can do in front of your TV: is sit on a stool. And put your toes on something (a piece of heavy furniture, for example). So in your hands, hold a little dumbbell.


Also Please, make sure that it is not very heavy; start with one kilo, for example, or you will damage your back and spine!. And Slowly move the upper part of your body back until it’s parallel to the ground. Also, stop for a second and move it back to the sitting position.


Repeat ten times

Every week add to the number of repetitions. Furthermore, you will see the results in a week, guaranteed!. You will see or feel the fat – if you have any – six-pack and muscles.


Dumbbells do wonder. And much better than these crunches – I came up to three hundred, and there were no results AT ALL. Consequently, with the dumbbells, you will see them in a week.



So you want washboard abs. But that hard-to-lose belly fat won’t go away.

Belly fat, love handles, FUPA, whatever you want to call it, we need to know what we are dealing with? Frustratingly this is one of the first places fat is stored and one of the last to release it. The fat around your belly is called visceral fat. Visceral fat is body fat stored within the abdominal cavity and is therefore stored around several important internal organs such as the liver, pancreas, and intestines.

How much visceral fat you have is down to your genetics, your lifestyle, and most importantly, how active you are. So we’ve established visceral fat isn’t all bad, however when it comes to trying to get our abs popping, visceral fat is the enemy. Firstly you need to accept you will not eliminate the visceral fat, but there are five things you can do to reduce excess abdominal fat around your belly and have more visible abs.



The key is to be active, regardless of what size you are. Believe it or not, even thin people have visceral fat around their bellies. Studies show that even thin people who watched their diets but didn’t exercise were more likely to have too much visceral fat. Visceral fat loves inactivity, so you need to get up and start moving.

Start resistance training, and I don’t mean you start doing many sit-ups and crunches; all you’re doing then is building muscle under the visceral fat. Focus on exercises that build the most muscle by burning the most calories. Exercises that require the most amount of calories to repair the broken down muscles. Compound exercises such as deadlifts, squats, bench presses, dips, and pull-ups are great for fat loss as you burn many calories during and after training.

Start with incorporating 20 minutes of daily exercise (walking, jogging, cycling). Once you feel more comfortable and your body starts to adjust to this new routine, start to increase it. Listen to your body and make sure you are exercising safely.

Don’t think you have to be running 5 miles a day to have an effective workout. A HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) is amazing for weight loss. A short 15-20 minute bodyweight circuit will burn many more calories compared to any other form of cardiovascular training. It also keeps your metabolic rate higher for hours after the workout and throughout the day resulting in burn fat. Other benefits of HIIT are muscle gain, improved oxygen consumption, and reduced heart rate, and blood pressure.

There are so many videos on YouTube for you to watch. You might find it more enjoyable, which will encourage you to keep ongoing.



Weight loss tends to be promoted more as an exercise in cutting calories than in increasing exercise. While the key to weight loss is to burn more calories than you consume, most people tend to lower their calorie intake (food consumption) and think that’s enough. It would help if you thought about burning calories through increased exercise too.

Doing both (cutting calories through diet and burning calories through exercise) will be more effective, especially if you don’t simply crash your diet or start restricting yourself to a limited amount of calories a day.



You’ve heard the saying “Abs are made in the kitchen” or “Abs are 80% diet & 20% exercise”. These are based on the fact that gaining calories through eating is easier than burning them off with exercise.

As a result, people can easily put off exercising as it is easier to control their diet. But the aim is not just to lose weight but to maintain your new weight. Studies also show that people who lose weight and keep it off for the long term create a calorie deficit through getting regular exercise and eating a healthy diet.

So when it comes to the foods that you should be consuming daily, you should be eating many vegetables, nuts, fruits, lean protein, and healthy fats, such as olive oil, fish oils, and avocados. Always have a source of protein for breakfast, loads of veg, fruits, and fiber. Prioritize foods with a high thermic effect; you want to have foods like chicken, turkey, vegetables, and eggs because they take more calories for your body to break down.

Cut back on processed foods, fizzy drinks, and processed carbs (white bread, pasta, cereals). Give up alcohol. Fat and alcohol are both processed by your liver, and when you drink, your liver will naturally prioritize getting rid of the alcohol and stop burning fat. Stay away from sugar; more fat is stored around your stomach simply from sugar and is heavily linked to obesity.

I know this sounds like a lot, but the discipline needed to achieve visible abs can be strict, and it’s the main reason why many give up. You need to train yourself to incorporate a lot of vegetables and protein with every meal. Trust me; the sacrifice will be worth it.



I would add water to the diet, but the importance of hydration means it needs its section. It would help if you aimed to drink two to three liters a day. It’s a great hack for your diet because it will help you eat less. You will soon find the majority of the time; you feel hungry; you’re just dehydrated. Granted, drinking water isn’t super exciting, but it is a great weight-loss aid because it provides hydration without unwanted calories.


Intermittent fasting (IF) is one of the world’s most popular health and fitness trends, used to lose weight, improve health, and simplify lifestyles.

Weight loss and weight management are the most common reasons for people to try intermittent fasting. By eating fewer meals, intermittent fasting can lead to an automatic reduction in calorie intake. Additionally, intermittent fasting changes hormone levels to facilitate weight loss.

I stop eating at 9 pm and won’t eat again until 1 pm the next day. It’s not for everyone, though, so try it for a week and see how you feel. After a few days, you’ll quickly get used to not having breakfast.

I hope this helps!
