How to Get Rid of Belly Fat Naturally

Most of us have faced problems losing belly fat. Known as love handles, pot belly or spare tire, belly fat is as stubborn as can be, and quite difficult to lose. And the interesting thing is that, most of us want a taut, washboard-like stomach as a flat tummy is often considered to be the ultimate sex symbol. 
The stomach has two kinds of fat – visceral fat and subcutaneous fat. Visceral fat is storage of fat inside the body and this cushion of fat protects our internal organs. Subcutaneous fat, on the other hand, is stored just under the skin. Yes, it is that wobbly fat that we so want to lose!

The best way to lose belly fat is to exercise regularly and eat right. Experts also suggest aerobic exercise and weight training to burn that fat. Let’s begin with the exercise. No, just working out mildly, for 30-40 minutes, a few times a week, isn’t going to be enough. You need to opt for a full yoga and body workout that has a mix of resistance and cardiovascular exercise, to cut down on abdominal fat. 

And if you thought, just doing crunches is going to solve the problem, then experts have a different point of view. Most health experts agree that one needs a full body workout rather than just crunches to lose belly fat. This sort of workout will increase your metabolic response as well as your hormonal response. 

You also need to consume foods that are right for burning belly fat. The thumb rule here is to eat food products that are low in calories but nutritious. Do not go in for crash diets or programs; instead, just focus on eating healthy food and exercise regularly.

Consistency is another point that one must remember while trying to lose belly fat. You need to be regular while exercising, instead of making exercise something that you do only when you have time. In the same way you have to completely avoid binging.

You may want to take the help of a nutritionist and a dietician to lose weight. They can draw up a diet that is rich in nutrients yet low in calories, and work out an exercise schedule that suits your abilities and requirements. You can also keep a journal to note down what kind of foods you are eating everyday and your exercise program. 

Remember, burning belly fat is all about perseverance!
