What your belly fat doesn't need

1. Your eating habits

The talks on diet can never be overemphasized. Carbonated drinks are bound to give you unwanted bloat. Also, processed foods with a high amount of saturated fat and sugar contribute to bloating which ends up becoming belly fat. Eating the wrong proteins like red meat are also factors.

To get rid of belly fat, your diet needs to change. You need to consume more fruits, vegetables, lean meats, nuts and more fibre content food.

 

2. Your fitness routine is not challenging

As we said earlier, protruding belly is one of the hardest to get rid of. This is why you need to put in more work, which means you're going for high-intensity workouts. High-intensity workouts mean you’re going all-out for as long as you can, briefly recovering, and then doing it again until you get your desired result.

3. You're not getting enough sleep

With the hustle and bustle of the country, adequate sleep seems to be unattainable. If you want to lose that belly, you need to get enough sleep. Studies have shown that those who sleep for less than 5 hours are likely to gain weight faster. Try getting at least seven to eight hours of sleep a night and you'll see your belly shrink.
