To remove belly fat, do at least 30 minutes of moderate cardiovascular exercise five times per week, improve your eating habits, go on a diet and modify your sleeping patterns. Losing belly fat requires forming long-term healthy lifestyle habits.
- Form a workout plan
To lose weight, burn more calories than you consume each day. Perform moderate exercises for at least 30 minutes, for at least five days of the week. For faster weight loss, perform more intense exercises. Cardiovascular exercises, such as jogging, swimming or biking, are ideal for quick weight loss, but strength training is important too. Talk to a doctor before exercising if you have been inactive for an extended period.
- Reconsider your eating patterns
Pay attention to the reason why you eat. Avoid eating when you are bored or unhappy. Keep track of the foods you eat in a notebook. You may want to keep track of calories and compensate with additional exercise.
- Go on a diet
Eliminate unnatural sugars, starches, fatty meats and dairy products from your diet. Eat plenty of fibers, whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat proteins. Drink plenty of water, and try to avoid snacking between meals.
- Modify your sleep habits
Poor sleep patterns can cause weight gain and stress. Go to sleep at the same time each night, and wake up 6 to 7 hours later consistently.
