Reality

Before I give you my 5 best tips to help you get rid of your belly fat, you are going to have to understand that it is going to take time and consistency. You are not going to lose all of your fat in a day or a week. It may take a couple of months. The best timeline I can give you is if you follow these tips you may see progress within 1 month to 3 months, but the longer you do it the more results you will have.

Another thing to add is that you will not just lose belly fat where your stomach is. You will lose fat all over your body as a whole. Depending on your workout regime and diet, you will have better results in some areas than others.

Make sure that you're eating right, like lowering your carb intake and boosting your protein consumption. Make sure you are working out hard or doing some sort of cardio vascular workout during the day. One action definitely supplements the other and if you are not able to workout (or don’t want to workout) you can still lose weight with your food options so make sure your diet is clean. Do not think that working out and eating whatever you want will work. For some it may work, but for others it may not. Diet is key.

Here are a couple of tips that will help you lose belly fat. I suggest you combine all of these in moderation. Remember too much of anything can make you sick. I've done all of these in moderation and personally combining them all worked for me.

1. Carbohydrate Intake

If you have not tried this try it. Lowering your carb intake will help you with understanding what you're putting in your body. Things like cake, cookies, ice cream etc, are bad for lowering your fat percentage and if you cut these out and more you will see a difference in the way you look and feel. Let’s say you burn about 200 to 250 carbs a day by doing your daily movement (without a workout). If you eat 500 carbs and you're only burning 200-250 carbs you're storing an extra 250 to 300 carbs on your body. That will not only deter you from losing bodily fat, but it may actually help you GAIN more weight. Try your best to lower your carbs in a healthy manner.

Good carbs would be things like oatmeal, sweet potatoes, and fruit within moderation.

Carbs you should try to avoid

  • White bread

  • White rice

  • Cake, cookies, ice cream

  • Most cereals

2. Drink More Water

I know I know you’ve heard this hundreds of times, but having a good water intake is essential to burning belly fat. Not only will this help your skin, hair, and all your bodily organs (especially your kidneys) it will help for you to digest food better. Softening your stool and helping your blood circulation as well.

How does this lead to body fat decreasing? Well if you're drinking cold water your body is going to try to keep a consistent temperature. When the cold water enters the body the body will turn up the heat a bit, burning calories in the process. This causes the body to use more energy to move the water around therefore burning more calories.

Water also acts as an appetite suppressant. It causes you to eat less while disposing of toxins in your body. Water will boost your metabolism and help keep you from retaining water.

3. Green Tea!

When I first read about green tea I was astonished that you could actually lose weight simply by drinking this in the morning or before bed. Green tea contains catechins which are in berries and other plants.

Green tea is an antioxidant that boosts your metabolism and helps to burn overall fat on your body while you sleep. Drinking this simple beverage can help you lose weight and burn that extra stubborn body fat.

I don’t suggest drinking this on an empty stomach. Try to eat before you drink green tea especially if you have a sensitive stomach. Try not to drink this everyday or you may end up with an upset stomach. Other than that everything in moderation and if you drink green tea every other day when you start your morning or an hour or two before you go to bed you should lose weight and see results.

4. Whey Protein or Vegan based protein

Remember, everything in moderation. I suggest supplementing a protein shake as a food if you're hungry and feel like you want to have a tasty treat. Drinking a protein shake will help suppress your appetite and most protein shakes have a minimal amount of carbs.

Drinking one with water or getting a little creative and making a smoothie will help you with your cravings. Drink a protein shake in the morning to start your day or whenever you're hungry to help you avoid eating that cake sitting on the table.

Benefits from drinking protein:

  • Helps heal muscles

  • Boosts metabolism

  • Adds protein to your daily diet

5. Apple Cider Vinegar

Last but not least, 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar will help with boosting the process of weight loss. Best to drink before or after meals and to have multiple doses throughout the day. This will help you burn body fat overall and is a nice extra boost to your metabolism. Remember vinegar is a form of acid so it could mess with teeth enamel and definitely your stomach.

The Truth

The real truth is that you will not see a crazy amount of results after a day or two. It is going to take a little while (approximately a month) to truly see results. If you use even one or two of these in moderation combine this with a good diet and a decent workout regime (highly suggested) you will be able to lose body fat even if you do not have a workout regime. All these tips and tricks require consistency and patience. Get to work, stay consistent, most importantly be patient and you’ll get results!
