6 Tips for Losing That Extra Belly Fat

Every woman has that little extra belly fat they want to disappear. And that last little bit of belly fat is often the hardest to make disappear.

You know how it is with weight loss – no matter what you do that last little bit just won’t disappear.

Well, this article will give you six quick tips for making all that belly fat melt off your stomach. Don’t worry, all the tips listed below are relatively easy to follow. You’ll certainly be on the path to losing that extra belly fat in no time at all.

Eat Your Vegetables

The first tip for losing belly fat might actually be the most beneficial to your health for multiple reasons. But first, did you know most Americans don’t eat enough vegetables?

Obviously, a lack of vegetables will have an adverse effect on your health. It’ll make losing weight more difficult, too. Perhaps most frustratingly, it’ll make it extremely difficult to lose that body fat on your stomach. The reason?

You’re probably overeating. Vegetables don’t really have much caloric content. However, they do a really great job of filling you up. Plus, they can oftentimes be time-consuming to chew, which makes you feel like you ate something substantial.

All that combined means you’re much less likely to overeat, which makes it exponentially easier to shred that fat. In fact, you may forget to lose so much weight that you may have to try to gain weight!

Walk 30 Minutes a Day

Of course, being more active is another great thing you can do to lose some body fat. But working out three hours a day just isn’t feasible for working women. Actually, it’s pretty much impossible for everyone.

What type of working out is not impossible?

Walking 30 minutes a day.

All that walking might sound difficult to fit in your schedule, but you have so many missed opportunities to walk around. For instance, you might be able to walk (or ride a bike) to work or the corner store. If that doesn’t work for you, then you could always pace around randomly throughout the day.

Really, you can make time in your schedule to get some type of physical activity; unless, you’re working non-stop for 18 hours a day. If that’s the case, you should really find a different job.

Drink More Water

Drinking water is another habit you should pick up. Humans are made up of 70% water, so it’s obviously an important part of maintaining a healthy body. The general rule is that if your pee isn’t clear, then you aren’t drinking enough water.

Other than just being a healthy person, all that water can actually help you lose weight, too. Water takes up space in your stomach, which makes you feel full. And if you’re feeling full, then you’re much less likely to eat food.

So, drink more water – it’s healthful. It only helps you in your quest to slim down, too.

Also, soda does not count as water. In fact, soda consumption will make it much more difficult to lose weight.

Take Weight Loss Supplements

You can take all-natural supplements that will actually help you lose body fat. There are countless ones available for purchase all over the internet. Most of the effective ones, such as Idealica, use some form of green tea and natural caffeine to help burn off calories.

Now, weight loss supplements are not magic pills, but they can work well when combined with the other methods on this list.

Cut Out the Alcohol

Yes, we know – everyone, especially women, loves wine and beer. It’s just how we are.

Sadly, too much alcohol, especially beer, can give you a little bit of a belly. It’s called a “beer gut” for a reason. Now, this doesn’t mean you have to cut out 100% of your alcohol, but that will definitely help.

You do need to reduce your alcohol consumption to see results, though.

And you definitely want to see results. 

Avoid Sugar

Sugar is another thing that often gets overlooked in weight loss. Many women will count calories, but they’ll forget about their sugar intake. In all honesty, sugar is likely worse since it immediately gets used as energy or stored as fat. It can also make you sick because your insulin level will spike.

Unfortunately, avoiding sugar is rather difficult because it’s in practically everything we eat. And yes, carbohydrates count as sugar, but they’re not a bad one.

The bad sugar is processed sugar

The best advice: avoid processed food and food that comes in a cardboard box – it almost always contains unnatural sugar. You should also avoid food with ingredients that sound like they were invented in a laboratory. Those sometimes contain sugar, and they’re just not very good for you in general.
