Your Food, Your Activities And Belly Fat

Updated on December 2, 2010

You can not succeed in your life if you do not enjoy a good health and good health can not be guaranteed if you have excess fat around your waist. The simple formula for losing your belly fat and developing an attractive six pack abs is that the calories you spend should be more than the calories you consume. This does not mean that you should always have a paper and pen with you and keep on noting down the calories you eat and the calories you spend. If you do so, you will not have time to do anything else in your life. The idea is to make you understand that you should indulge in more of physical activities and eat moderate quantities of food. If your job does not involve much of physical work, you should plan your lifestyle in such a manner that you get more of bodily activities.

It is better you understand that there is a thing called Basic Metabolic Rate which is popularly called as BMR. By knowing your BMR, you can know how many calories your body requires for its maintenance. In addition to these calories that are required for your body to maintain itself, you require calories for your activities also and so, the total calories you require is BMR plus the calories required for your activities. If you consume more calories than this, the fat around your stomach will definitely increase.

For reducing your belly fat, you must reduce eating those foods that add more calories. Foods like oily and spicy items and junk foods add a lot of calories and at the same time, they do not supply any nutrition to your body. You are not advised to stop eating these foods completely. If you are fond of eating them, you can continue eating them but you should reduce the quantity of each portion and there should be quite a long gap between portions. Same is the case with cheese, sweets, ice creams, cakes, etc.

You should also understand one more fact and it is that all carbohydrates do not have the same quality. You have both good carbohydrates and bad carbohydrates. The carbohydrates that are present in white bread, pastries, doughnuts, cakes, sweets, ice creams and biscuits are bad carbohydrates and if you eat more of them, your calorie-burning capacity or the metabolism is decelerated. Unburned calories present in these foods add to your fat. But, you can get good carbohydrates from fruits and vegetables and so, you can eat more of fruits and vegetables and less of the former. Similarly, oats, brown rice, sweet potato and a few pulses are said to release carbohydrates quite slowly and hence, you can consume more of them.

Alcohol consumption should also be reduced. It is a proven fact that as along as the effect of alcohol is there in your body, the fat-burning capacity of your body is halted. Further, alcohol supplies enormous amount of calories and hence, your belly fat increases.

If you do not have much of physical activities in your job or profession, you must have a good exercises regimen to spend your calories. Good exercises will improve your blood circulation and hence, toxins that are present in your body will be flushed out. When the blood circulation improves due to exercises, the body secretes a few endocrines that have a capacity to reduce your craving for food. Further, due to a good blood circulation, all the parts of the body are supplied with the required nutrients. The body has a great quality of craving less for food if it is consistently supplied with all the essential nutrients.

Once you succeed in reducing your belly fat by following the above tips, you can move on to the next step of acquiring six-pack abs.
