  1. Reduce on Carbohydrates

Did you ever know that your body needs a good balanced diet of protein, carbohydrates, dairy products, fruit, grains and vegetables to maintain good health? Most people , however, overload their system with too much of carbohydrates. These foods usually have high concentration of starch or sugar. You will find that this includes anything made with processed flour, sugar, grains or foods with added sugar.

What many people do not understand is that overloading your body with carbohydrates will increase your body weight, and finally ending up being obese. I do not think you are the type of people who would like to be associated with obesity, if you consider complications accompanied. The carbohydrates are rapidly digested and quickly converted to fat, hence increasing your weight. In essence, you will not attain your goal of losing belly fat.

You need to eat less pasta and white bread and you will lose weight substantially. All you need to do is to have an alternative of grain and pasta to enable you lose belly fat. For your information, eating two sandwiches made of white bread at a given meal will be adding you 400 useless calories to your body. You think you need them? definitely no. Just substitute to one Sandwich of whole bread which is more filling and you wont need to eat anything more. If you are used to pasta, switch to whole grain pasta instead. essentially, whole grain foods are more feeling , which makes you eat less and also better for your body.

2. Avoid Pre-sweetened Drinks and Soda pops.

From recent studies, an average American drink an estimated fifty Six gallons of soda each year. That is amazing, isn't it?. In terms of calories, that is nearly 120,000 per year; and considering that a pound of fat is almost equal to 3500 calories, this leaves you with no doubt why you are fat. Are we together so far? This is not a laughing matter, it is serious. This is what i would refer to matter of life and death.

One soda can carry 200 calories which is equivalent of 10 teaspoons of sugar, WOW. Surely,if you are in proper sense, can you add 10 spoons of sugar to drink, and at the same time you are telling people you want to lose that stubborn belly fat? I agree with you when you say , No!, if i could see you nodding.

Do not be surprised if i tell you some people take up to 5 sodas on a daily basis, which in terms of numbers, is equivalent to 1000 useless calories, and to make the matter worse, you grow fat. I can tell you that if you avoid those sodas, you will lose 2 - 3 pounds each week. Substitute the sodas with water. Water is very beneficial . As much as it transports a lot toxins of your body, it will aid you cut your weight , or those bulging fats. To add some taste to the water, add a little lemon or lime .

3. Avoid Fast Food

It is already a known fact that some foods served in fast food restaurants are not good for your health. Some of these food may carry 2 to 3 times of the calories as its home-made food, one you prepare in your kitchen. Large fries can carry over 700 calories against 300 calories of what you make at home. A hamburger can carry 500 calories against 315 made at home. All what i am leading to, i can make a long list and give a comparison of these foods and what you could make at your house and you will find a very big difference in terms of calories. So, my advice, if you want lose that belly fat very fast, start making your food, and if you have to go to a fast food restaurant, do it, possibly once a month. In fact, you will be shocked to see the effect. You will be healthy and feel nice.

So if undertake the above steps, losing belly fat will be a thing of the past and you will better to share your experience with your family and friends. Your live will never be the same again.
