Best Five Ways to Lose Belly Fat Fast

Losing belly fat need not be complicated and mysterious. Here are some of the best ways to reduce belly fat quickly. By using these tips, you will find that losing stubborn belly fat is not as difficult. In fact, some of these tips are fun and do not involve unpleasant tasks and restrictions.

1 - Eat some smaller meals every day. Instead of 3 larger meals daily, eat 5-6 small meals. This helps to maintain your metabolism because you never get to the point of being hungry during the day. You also keep your blood sugar level this way too.

2 - Make sure the sugar and carbohydrates are low. Everyone has heard about doing a low carb diet. The reason people succeed with them is to eliminate sugar and other simple carbohydrates (such as white flour). Sugar, in high doses, is a killer for your waistline. You don't have to give up carbohydrates - make sure you eat complex carbohydrates such as whole grain breads and vegetables. They are nutritious and they make you feel longer.

3 - Build lean muscle. Cardio has its place but you have the courage to exercise when you do strength or resistance training. Lean muscles help you look slim because the muscles take up less space than the fat in your body. Plus the leaner your muscles have the more calories you burn while resting. Combining both cardio and resistance exercises will help you lose pounds. Keep in mind that endless crunches won't flatter your stomach. And going beyond cardio can actually prevent you from gaining lean muscle. The best rule of thumb is to do enough cardio to burn extra calories (like a 2-foot walk) and the strength of your entire body to build lean muscle.

4 - Get enough sleep. When you do not get enough sleep your body will not produce enough leptin which is a protein that controls your appetite and signals to your stomach that it is full. In other words, when you are tired you want to eat more. And of course, consuming too many calories means gaining extra weight.

5 - Relax! Stress is a very important factor in gaining weight. Cortisol (stress hormone) also causes an increase in appetite and fat production. Worse, cortisol causes fat to be stored in the stomach. So take some time to rest. You can also combine great cardio walking with release of stress and relaxation. Any exercise tends to help lower stress levels. So get out of there and move your body and you'll burn calories and reduce your stress.

To easily lose belly fat you just need to make some changes in your lifestyle. All five of these tips can be included at the same time. However, if it is too much fun to make many changes at once then slowly incorporate it. Try a different tip each week and about a month later you will use all five.
