A few simple tweaks to your lifestyle can help reduce your tummy fat.
Good news is, you don’t need a six-pack to be healthy! Simple changes can target this freaky fat.
So we talked to Dr Travis Stork, author of The Lose Your Belly Diet, and snagged his best tips to keep your tum in great shape.
1. You don’t have to give up carbs…
But you do need to add fibre. Yes, it keeps you full, but it also promotes good gut bacteria, which has been linked to a healthy weight.
2. Eat almonds
Almonds are a satisfying, fibre-rich choice, and a recent study showed that people who ate them daily lost more abdominal fat than those who didn’t.
3. Lift weights at least three times per week
Resistance training at least three days a week can help you burn more fat, including in your belly, since muscle revs your metabolism.
But don’t knock moderate exercise either. Sticking to a routine is most important for weight management overall, so pick something you enjoy – jogging, brisk walking, whatever – and make it a habit.
