1. Create a Caloric Deficit – Everyone knows that it is important to eat a well-balanced, low-calorie diet. What you really need to focus on, however, is creating a caloric deficit. This simply means that your body burns more calories than it takes in. While you natural metobolism will burn some calories for you, you must ensure that you eat approximately 500 calories more than you need to maintain your weight. Find a good BMI calculator online and determine your actually caloric needs.
2. Eat Five to Six Small Meals Each Day – You cannot lose weight if you are constantly overeating. One way to ensure that you stayed properly fueled is to eat more often. This is actually one of the most effective methods for losing your belly fat. Break your total calories down into five or six smaller portions and eat on a regular, consistent basis.
3. Drink Water – Every one knows this, but only a few actually drink enough water to full hydrate themselves. You must stay completely hydrated. If you only drink when you are thirsty, then you have waited too long. Drink every time you think about it. Try it for a week and you will feel better and watch the body fat melt away.
4. Be Patient -Do not give up! Never give in! You can do this. It took many months, or perhaps even years, to gain your weight. It may take just as long to lose it. Monitor your progress weekly, but make corrections every three weeks. Many times something will not work for the first five to ten days, but will then start to produce significant results thereafter.
