14. Lose Belly Fat with Lean Meat
Foods that have thermogenic properties can burn your calories while you eat them, and protein is very thermogenic!
Proteins from animal sources are more thermogenic than proteins from vegetables. Therefore, lean meats can help reduce belly fat.
By eating lean meat you will burn roughly 30% of the calories that it contains just by digesting the food!
Try to include some protein in your diet each day such as lean chicken, and lean beef or pork. The best time to eat it would be at dinner time, so that you can burn some of the calories at a time when your metabolism starts to slow done for the day.
15. Lose Belly Fat with Quick Tweaks To Your Habits
Sometimes eating healthy and exercising just isn’t enough. To see results quicker, you might want to try making a few tweaks to your lifestyle and habits.
A very important one is sleeping properly. A lack of sleep can cause fat to accumulate in the belly because your body doesn’t have time to digest the foods. Also, when you don’t sleep or when you stay up late, you are more likely to eat later on in the evening or snack.
Alcohol is another major weight loss hinder. Alcohol is full of empty calories that just accumulate around your waistline.
Take time each day to relax and have a few deep breaths. Stress contributes to weight gain, so it’s important to take deep breaths during the day and do things that de-stress you.
16. Drink More Water
Dehydration can cause more than just headaches. Dehydration can cause weight gain as well.
If you don’t drink enough water, your body will hold onto water and it can cause water weight on your body, which looks the same as fat and causes bloating.
Try to drink at least 2 liters of water a day so your body can constantly flush out toxins and stay hydrated.
