Learn How To Lose Belly Fat With Our Ultimate Guide

by Mike

Most of us desire a flat stomach, and we often ask the question “how can I lose belly fat?” Unfortunately there is no magic procedure and most of the time what is needed is in fact a change in life style. It is vital to remember that losing excess belly fat is not just important because of appearance, but belly fat can in fact be very damaging to our health and can lead to various illnesses, such as diabetes and heart disease.

Dieting – The Way to Lose Fat Using Calorie Restriction

Dieting is one of the best ways to lose weight around your stomach, this does not mean starving yourself or eating foods you dislike, it just means making a few changes to the food you usually eat. It is recommended to eat five to six mini meals a day rather than three large and main meals. This is because it will suffice your hunger appetite throughout the day and it will also result in you eating less food as your portions will be smaller. In addition to this, by eating little and often you in fact boost your metabolism because the body burns more energy.

Check out this video with some tips about losing weight:

It is vital to drink lots of water throughout the day as it accelerates the fat burning process. Water also aids the functioning of the liver and our liver actually has the ability to burn reserved fat and convert it into energy.

When it comes to food, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so start off your day with a good and healthy breakfast. As mentioned the frequency of eating is vital, just as crucial is what you eat. There are in fact various foods which aid the loss of fat around your stomach, such as; fish, vegetables, dark chocolate, and fruit. However, there are also foods which do the opposite and diminish your ability to shed stomach fat, these include foods that are high in saturated fat and sugar, and thus you should try and avoid such foods as much as possible.

Exercise – Stay Fit With These Exercise Routines

It goes without saying that any diet should be aided with exercise in order to achieve maximum impact. Nevertheless, when targeting your stomach in particular, there are various exercises which will benefits this more.

Resistance training exercises:

Weight lifting exercises help your body fight fat by building muscle. By working on abdominal exercises your stomach muscles will get tighter as well as stronger. I would recommend doing exercises such as squats, chest presses, and dumbbell rows.

Cardio exercises:

These are extremely beneficial whilst attempting to lose weight, as they accelerate our heart rate and cause us to use more energy. If you can feel your heart beating faster and your breathing increasing, then you know it is working. Try to exercise on a regular basis, about three to four times a week is ideal. Find out about the best way to shed stomach flab fast here.

Final words

Losing belly fat is not easy and a lot of effort is needed, however once you start to see results you will be highly motivated to put in extra effort. There are all sorts of myths about quick diets and slimming machines, however they are exactly that – myths, there is no secret answer to losing weight, but by exercising and dieting you can get rid of excess stomach fat.

In fact many types of slimming equipment on the market today actually reduce your metabolism levels which will actually cause you more harm than good. It is hard to lose weight, especially in this day and age where most of our time is spent sitting down in our cars or at a computer desk, however if you follow this basic guide you are guaranteed the results you want. In the end feel free to check out these exercises.

Hi,

Your article seems to imply that everyone who has belly fat is obese or overweight. I am thin in the rest of my body, eat healthy and a wide variety of foods and try to get some walking done whenever I am able in my hectic schedule. My question is, how can I reduce my belly fat (just the belly fat) alone? The rest of my body is thin by any standards. However, I should mention that I am in my menopause and many people address this issue, but incorrectly. Any suggestions? I have tried no sugar in my diet (I’m not really a fan of cakes or sweet stuff like chocolate or desserts anyway) which didn’t cost me a lot, I only have one teaspoon of brown sugar in my coffee (I hate artificial sweetners- Splenda, Equal, Stevia or otherwise. In fact I hate artificial and the so called “light” products altogether). I have tried minimal fat in my diet, barely olive oil and avocado salad (I hate junk food anyway), but yet I still have the stubborn belly fat. I have also tried vegetarian diet and a diet based on only poultry and fish with vegetables (raw or cooked). I have tried a diet that eliminates bread and starch, with the exception of whole grain rice and sweet potatoes. I am certainly not a fan of weight training or situps. Is there any other way I can reduce belly fat without so much dam trouble? Obviously, either I’m producing too much cortisol or what? If that is the case, are there any pills or natural foods or products that reduce cortisol in the body?

I would appreciate a detailed answer
Thank you

Hi,
I am a 13 year old who just wants to have a bit of a flat tummy because it sticks out. I have a sugar addiction. I have my period and everything but everyone seems to have a flat stomach. I drink PLENTY of water. My diet has more sugar but I don’t get fat. I just somehow want my belly to be slightly more flat so that I can function much easier. Because my belly fat kind of hurts my stomach. I eat plenty. Can you recommend something? Thanks

DreamSeeker September 10, 2010 at 1:57 pm

Hi,
I’m a 15 year old girl. I have a HUGE problem concerning my weight. I weigh 214lbs.! I want to say that I’ve tried everything but I’ve just tried a lot of things. One thing I recently started was not eating after six, drinking a lot of water, eating less, I’ve also tried vegetarianism(which includes fish and dairy). I’ve done the vegetarian thing for about three years. But it seems like whenever I try to lose weight I just keep gaining more!! I really just want to be able to go shopping and actually shop. Whenever I go shopping with my mom, I NEVER get anything gor myself because all the really nice clothes can’t fit me. And get this, MY MOM WEIGHS LESS THAN ME!! How suckish is that!! I’m just about to finish school, graduation’s in just a couple of months! I really want to look good for it and maybe even get a date(if that’s possible). So can any one PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help me!?!?! If you could see me now I’m down on one knee! =(

matt October 14, 2010 at 5:42 pm

Hi i am currently losing weight fairly rapidly and have lost inches from my waist and bulked up really well, i currently bike to college which is about 4 miles there and another 4 miles back, i also go to my local gym and do weight training which is really helping me bulk up in muscle, but after a weight work out i will row for about 15 mins and then a short jog on a treadmill but normally i try and do this outside in the woods or across feilds. Another good thing is circuit training at the gym (ask someone at the gym if you go to one and if you dont i strongly recommend it!) And dont diet, i eat an average amount, weetabix, bannana and honey with semi skimmed milk for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch with some fruit and then a normal sort of dinner. I drink alot of semi skimmed milk and alot of water to throughout the day.

So i suggest just eat normally and avoid the chippy and takeaways, and try to bike to work or school/college, try to jog for 10 mins. Another great way to lose weight is to hit the swimming pool and swim!!! (just talk to people if you feel uncomfortably with your body in the pool, they can have great advice and have probably been in the same situation as you!!) Good luck and if you have any other great ways of losing weight please let me know! :)

Rick December 14, 2010 at 11:06 pm

Hi im 15 years old. Right now i have weightlifting. Before i got into weighlifting i would do sit ups and some other exercises. I did lose some belly fat but not as much as i would like. Now that im in weightlifting I have gotten stronger in my abdomen but still have not lost the belly fat. Any advice??

Kristin December 15, 2010 at 3:55 am

I hate to burst a lot of your bubbles, but losing belly fat is never a quick and easy process. It’s a lifestyle choice.
Another thing I need to address is the fact that many of you are way too young to be worried about this! Please google your weight, height, and age and notice that most of you are in the average to below average range. I definitely understand the stress of wanting to be thin, and TRUST ME, I’ve used up too much time and effort when I felt that same pressure in high school.
I don’t want to be the older chick who rains on your parade though, so I will say this: Make sure you eat a balanced diet. That is honestly the trick to being slim in all the right places. I used to eliminate a bunch of different types of foods thinking that there was some trick, but now my goal is to make sure I eat something from every food group every day. Make it a challenge to follow the new food guide pyramid:

Fruits: 2 cups
Vegetables: 2.5 cups
Grains (try to make it whole grains)- 6 ounces (one ounce is one serving)
Protein- 5.5 ounces (not that hard to do- meat isn’t the only thing with protein in it… eggs, low fat peanut butter, almonds, fish, beans…)
Dairy: 3 cups (try for low fat cheese, yogurt, fat free ice cream, skim milk…)
Oils: 6 teaspoons- try for olive oil (great for your skin, hair, nails)
And any other fats should be healthy fats beneficial to your body. You can go for an avacado, nuts, fish (omega 3′s, and other healthy fats).

One more tip, and I’ll stop rambling: Don’t be afraid to SWEAT. When you work out, really go for it. If you want to see results, don’t lie to yourself and half-ass the exercises. Try to run as long as you can and keep building that up to a personal goal. If you don’t like running, walk at an incline or try stairs; you’ll be srprised how quickly you start to sweat. Also, if dance classes or kick boxing is available to you (or if you buy a home video) have fun with it. You need to switch it up.

That’s all! I hope this helped!

Santosh Chowdary December 29, 2010 at 2:55 am

Hi Friends,

There’s no need to gym to lose the fat especially the obesiety in children or teenagers.
Here are the tips which I know, Try this, this will help you out.
1) Take a Rich breakfast, which is rich in fibre. Take your lunch good enough. Avoid the Dinner, but drink some citrus kinda juice.
2)Avoid Non-veg, especially chicken or turkey, Avoid Junk foods like pitzas or burgers.
3) and the third one, Cut a lemon and mix its juice in a glass of water, add two tea spoons of honey in it. This drink is called sharbath in my country, Drink it. It will brink a drastic change in you. because honey has the power to burn the fat, especially the belly fat.
4) Do cycling or skipping. But I prefer Cycling as the best one, which reduces the belly and hip region.

Jill January 3, 2011 at 2:54 am

Hi guys
if you are serious about loosing belly fat, you will have to change you eating habits (no refined sugars) just natrual sugars from fruits and incorperate fish, veggies, and whole grains to your diet. Remember you should be eating 5-6 small meals throughout the day (Especisally Breakfast!) . You should also do at least 20 of cardio 5 times a week!

Mary January 3, 2011 at 5:38 am

Guys your 10,11, 12,13 and so on.
Your young, your bodies changing and you have plenty of time to think about that later! Life your short pre-teen years without worrying what anyone else cares about! I know its hard because I’ve been through it but trust me why are you going to worry about something so minor at such an early stage in life when you have the rest of your life to really worry about it!
And if your really concerned about just exercise and diet, not a forced diet because that makes you gain even more weight! I lost so much weight on dieting and 15 minutes of exercise a day without having to starve and exhaust my body.
And it takes time you can’t expect results FAST. Be patience and you’ll see you’ll have the body you want in no time!!
~~~Mary

Struggling January 4, 2011 at 9:18 am

dear DreamSeeker,
i struggle with a similar problem, almost exact! i’m trying to design something that’ll work for me. its starting to work slowly but surly. here it is: drink tons of water, water helps flush out all the bad stuff out of your system and it kicks off the perfect diet. exercise at least once a day for 20-40 minutes. id start with 20 so you dont push too far, as for the exercise, do something aerobic, like brisk walking, jogging, or riding your bike. aerobic exercise help build muscle and burn fat. hope this helps :) .

Kristin January 6, 2011 at 11:19 pm

Hello my name is Kristin. I’m 13 going on 14, and I’ve ALWAYS had belly fat. When I was in the 6th grade (8th grade now) I had a fairly large stomach that always seemed to poke out. But when I got to the 8th grade, my stomach flattened a tiny bit, but I still have rolls, and chubby-ness in that area. My thighs are chubby too, but it seems like no matter what I do this won’t get off of me. I have friends that are SUPER skinny, but I don’t want to be like that. And even so I don’t want to be just skinny, I’d like to be more athletic looking. I’m on the volleyball team and I have horses and I play softball, but no matter how many sports I do I never lose weight.
I understand what I have to do in order to try and lose weight with your advice, but I don’t really quite understand the calorie intake. And plus, my parents don’t want me to lose weight. They’re always saying I’m skinny and stuff. But I’d like to look better and feel better in a bikini with my friends. I weigh 136.
I kind of get the whole calorie thing, but I don’t really understand the 4-6 meals a day. Some of the things that I eat don’t have calories things on them (that I see). So how would I get my parents on board with me? I’m really desperate here!

amber stravoski January 23, 2011 at 8:13 pm

its impossible 2 get a boyfriend when i am this fat help!

im really fat and i weigh 143 lbs. but i am only 5’3! my thighs bulge. help me!

la January 25, 2011 at 5:40 am

wow i cant believe i just read all this. theres more to life than being skinny-its devastating to see that like 90% of these posts are from 12 year old girls. your still growing and developing, your weight and belly size shouldn’t even enter your thought process unless it’s a health risk. your still young, it’s better you realize whats important now than later. you should be focused on school and socializing with friends and having fun, stop obsessing over your appearance and accept the beautiful body you were born with.

Breanna January 29, 2011 at 5:08 am

Hey, I’m Bree, I Weigh 105 Pounds.? I’m In The 8th Grade, And I’m 14….

me February 7, 2011 at 2:53 am

I agree with mary. And unless your obese and you think it might affect your health. stop worrying about it

Lauren February 8, 2011 at 9:49 pm

Hey girls! no, im not a mom, and im not obese, but i am in the same situation you are. I am uncomfortable with my body and you can be that at any age. I dont want to be like all the people on her telling you your too young to worry about that, but in reality, you are. when i was 12 and 13 i was skinny.. i hit puberty and wooooo i gained weight. trying to get it off but i didnt really set my mind to it. It just shows how quickly your body is going to change. im 18 years old, and have been working out everyday as well as sports. ive lost 3 pounds in the past two weeks. which really isnt a lot. but at least its something. Also you might even feel bigger before you lose the weight. i know i did. bathing suit season is coming up and we all want to look good! just take the advice from all the people about eating right and working out. if you put your mind to it…. you will lose the weight. maybe slowly but surely.

vanessa February 9, 2011 at 3:37 am

keisha February 20, 2011 at 11:26 pm

can i just piont out that all the girls ages 10-15 need to stop worrying about the “belly fat” no offence but if you weigh like leess then like 140 you really have no problems if you want to lose the weight then join some school activity like band, softball, basketball, or some other sport. and worrying about the other girls will eventualy end up making you gain more weight. as for me i am 20 years old and i weight like 245 and just recently had a baby, but i have struggled with my weight since i was 16, but ik that back then if i ate regularly and had a salad or baked potatoe for lunch, stopped eating after 7 and walked after dinner i would drop the weight easy. si my suggestion is dont worry or think about it to much, eat healthy and know when to stop eating and some exercise everyday even if its 15 mins and you’ll have results

jackie July 8, 2011 at 6:54 pm

yupp.

my names jackie. im almost 12. i will be 12 in two weeks. a boy that i really loiked asked me out a week ago and weve bee bf gf ever since.
i feel kinda fat. i always have. when i was 10 years old i weighed 115 pounds. i live on a farm so most of its muscle but the scale still tortured me. when i get older i seek the world of fame and fortune so i need to look my best. i lost a few pounds, im now 107 and im 28% body fat. my bmr is 1345 or sumthing and i probally burn around 2000 on an average day. most boys are head over heels for me but i still feel so empty and ugly and fat. does everyone have fat roles when they bend down? and how do u stop ur frickin pants from rollin up? oh also i HATE water. i can only drink flavored water cause the plain tastes lik crap to me. i cant take any pills. and my mom is threating taking me to a therapist if i keep this up. i was down to eatin 1200 calories a day and then i was to 2000. and now im back to 1200…. i try to eat healthy food. and i eat from boredom. i work alot and have been trying to make up a normal every-day work ou routine thats easy to understand. if anyone has ANY information.. please tell me. (goodbye bye)

jackie July 8, 2011 at 7:11 pm

jackie

this is for amber stravoski.
drink water. it will flush out your system and get all the bad things out.
the recomended amount of water per day is 8 eight once glasses.
what calories u do consume should b healthy ones, lik apples and kiwis and bannas. not peanut butter and nutella ALL the time. in order to lose weight u must burn more than waht u consume. 4 example: if u burnt 2000 calories a day,(lik me) thenu could only eat 1500 a day. if u burn 500 cal. a day then u will lose a pound every week. eat a breakfast full of fiber, cause it helps fill u up. and if ur lik me and eat from boredom……1.try and make a list of what u plan on doing today…2.drink water..3. manage ur money (believe it or not it works 4 me).. and 4..eat 5-6 meals each day but keep em small.( breakfast snack lunch snack dinner ) dont eat past 7 o clock at night 4 starts. and truely if u cant get any boy cause ur fat.. ur not looking at the right boys. and what about other things? lik do you hav good sense of fashion? humor? do u hav nice skin? i mean theres alot more to life than just weight/worry. but i no what u feel lik. im surrounded by people thinner than me all the time. plus my hair is completely frizzy. i think the only reason people lik me is cause im funny and smooth with the boys. i really hope i helped… (goodbye bye)

Hi,
okay i am 12 and a girl, and since im going to jr. high this year i need to lose weight on my face,body,legs and arms…because when i was little my grandma would give me sooooooo much food. even with butter and that made everything worse..and when i was in pre k and kindergarten i was the fastest girl. and i was so popular. but now i want to be skinny for my boyfriend which is chubby cute….anyways now my grandpa is making me exercise every day! (which i hate) and he is a awsome grandpa, like he can hold onto a pole and put his legs straight in the air! and i want to do something quick!!! :(

Carrie July 13, 2011 at 3:34 pm

Hey,
I am in good shape, but its my young cousin Olivia who needs to lose the weight. She is 12 years old. She has terrible acne, but aside from that, her thighs and stomach are her mainly overweight parts. Her mother says she’s too young to diet, but she does a lot of sports (that mainly go on during the school year-she doesn’t have school now). She weighs around 150 pounds, but if you looked at her she doesn’t look fat or thin. She is very conscious about her body, and it makes me feel terrible that someone has to deal with that at such a young age. Being overweight is something her whole family deals with. Everyone but her sister which is my eldest cousin– Mikala. She is pretty,smart,thin, everything about her is perfect. This impacts Olivia because she really wishes to be like her sister. Even her sister wants to help her! What do we do??????
She’s too young for and MAJOR diet or any MAJOR workout. Please please help soon. She needs to lose weight within the next 2 weeks due to family events (wedding and such). I would appreciate a response quickly. THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!
From,
Carrie

I am 21 yrs old and I weight 92 pounds, the problem is that everyone keeps saying how good I look but inside I still feel fat, when I look in the mirror I see a fat person, I HAVE A HUGH FEAR of becoming fat and so I don’t eat. I will eat a pack of peanut for the entire day with some water. My weight keeps on decreasing and I really feel sick but I can’t help myself. So ladies please accept yourself as you are cause you are beautiful once you believe it, that was my downfall not believing in myself….please don’t let the fear of being fat makes you sick like it has done me…..best wishes all….

ezekwesili Ada March 15, 2012 at 8:05 am

fat belly is not good at all. you have to look good for yourself. it makes you to stand out at all times. Generally, food contributes a lot to this, especially junk food. let us apply wisdom.

zizi March 15, 2012 at 5:12 pm

i do have fat in my tummy and would like it to reduce.what should i do

ZEE - ZEE March 16, 2012 at 5:22 pm

I belivie that you could lose your belly fat, by just running a mile or two a day. And use small plates to eat on. Also drink nothing but water.

You will see how fast the fat comes right off.

Good Luck.

Pucca March 20, 2012 at 6:41 am

Hi, my name is Pucca, I have a 2 months old son. I use to have a nice body with a flat belly, I use to love it. Ever since I have the baby I keep putting on more weight. Before the baby, I use to weight 165 lbs wchich was normal for my height, but now I’m 199.1 lbs. I used to breastfeet but I stop now because I was told that I have to eat healthy so the baby coud get enough nutrient. now that I’ve stoped, I keep getting bigger and bigger and my belly is hanging like a sac. please help me!

Kay March 29, 2012 at 12:29 am

Hey guys.
All you 11, 12, 13 year olds: You might still have just some baby fat. I didn’t lose my baby fat on my belly till I was 14. Just eat healthy and exercise. Avoid sugary sweets an desserts and fast food and junk food. It is important that you eat breakfast as they say ?breakfast is the most important meal of the day” It really is though. Try eating fruit, whole grain toast, or eggs for breakfast. Everyone is built different. That doesn’t mean you are fat. This goes for everyone :) Good luck to all you

There is a lot of conflicting advice on the Internet.

I am a 46-year-old woman, and gained weight due to developing insulin resistance (IR) a few years ago. (Most of my life, I weighed under 100lbs.) Once I started treating the IR, I started finally losing weight through diet & exercise (something that didn’t happen at all before treating the IR). I exercise every, single day, includng HIIT. I do weights every other day, along with ab’s, as well. My biggest meal of the day is breakfast. I’m vegan. I eat a protein with a carb. at every meal & snack. I eat plenty of vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes, and wholegrains. I have added safflower oil to my daily regimen. I minimize simple carb’s. I have always eaten a very healthy diet, but just reduced overall calories when I started trying to lose weight. In short, I exercise hard, eat a healthy, low-cal. diet, and am doing everything I can think of to lose weight.

…Yet I have belly fat…for the first time in my life (starting with my IR-related weight gain a few years ago).

In fact, I have lost over 20lbs to date (yay!), yet haven’t gone down an inch around my waist. It’s confounding!

In pure desperation, I searched the Internet and found my way here. However, according to most of the online wisdom, I’m already doing everything I need to do to lose belly fat.

What I’ve been doing for months now is not working. I’m hoping that something will just magically “click” one of these days, and the fat around my middle will start to go away, because I don’t think I should eat less, and my workouts are already pretty arduous. I don’t know what else I could do. I’m lifting as heavy as I can. I do as much HIIT as I can. I do at least 45 min’s of cardio. every day. Paired with a nice, clean diet, and as much sleep as I can manage, I’m at a bit of a loss as to what I could possibly add.

Before the IR, my stomach was so tight, it was hard to even pinch some flesh for calipers. The first time my husband saw me in a bikini, he asked if I was contracting my ab’s. (I wasn’t. …Just a natural six-pack.) This whole doughy middle thing is relatively new to me…and it sucks.

Alas, I know there’s no “trick” to losing fat. But I would’ve thought I’d see some reduction in my waist with 20lbs lost and counting. :-(

i want to rduce my belly fat and hipps fat plzzzzzzz can u help me

Katherine May 12, 2012 at 5:09 pm

well, as for the comment i have read here.. most of you are children. the best way to lose weight is make sure you eat good.. and workout. no miracle diets exist or nothing will make you skinny in 1 day. the more you weigh, they faster you will lose weight but if you are skinny and want to lose a lot of weight, it wont happen fast. if you have a belly, stop eating sugary and sweet food. also , the rice is fattening in the belly area and so is bread. the thing that helped me lose like 10 pounds a week was Herbalife, but if a person does it.. they also gotta work out because it takes more than just sitting down and letting it work magically. get up, go out to walk for 2 hours. i am a Jehovah Witness so i go out for like 2-3 hours early and burn like 667 calories. join a gym and run or walk for 2 hours. move around, it is considered exercise. dancing also..put on your favorite song and dance while cleaning your room or jog while cleaning the house. but also change the eating habits and reduce the calorie intake. but do NOT starve yourself because you might lose, but when you start eating again.. you will most likely gain DOUBLE the weight you were. before every meal, drink 2 cups of water and you will eat less because you will feel so full half way through the meal. eat three “good” not “big” meal everyday. when i mean good meal, i mean high in fiber and protein..not something big like a big mack or the 20peice niggets. nope, stay away from that. check the labels and eat about 1350 calories – 1500 cals. its all about you, only you can make the difference and start saying NO to bad foods. BTW hebalife does work.. it has everything you need.. a protein shake for breakfast and for the night. and in the middle of the day you get to eat a meal. it comes with a tea which burns fat and the aloe vera which cleans your inside.
