To lose stomach weight, embrace an active lifestyle, change your dietary habits, get plenty of sleep each night and keep track of your progress. Making permanent lifestyle changes is key to weight loss.
- Be more active
Exercise is essential for losing weight. Try to do at least 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise at least five times every week. Jogging is a great way to burn calories. Try to choose workout programs that make you sweat. If you haven't been active recently, talk to a physician to make sure that your exercise regimen is safe.
- Make dietary changes
Cut out any starches, added sugars or fat from meat or dairy foods. Make sure you get plenty of fiber in your diet. Vegetables, fruits, lean meats, shellfish, fish and skinless chicken are all ideal foods.
- Adjust your sleep schedule
Try to get seven hours of sleep every night. Studies suggest that getting too little or too much sleep causes visceral fat gain over time.
- Track your progress
Keep a journal of all of the foods that you eat. Keep track of how many calories you consume and how many you burn each day. Try to set a goal for yourself, and adjust what you eat and how much you exercise to meet the goal for each day.
