Having a definite goal will make your chances of success much more likely. It is not enough to say that you want to look thinner. You need to put your goal into figures i.e. you want to weigh x pounds by x date or you want to wear size x trousers by x date. Whatever works for you but make sure you write it down.
Once your mind knows what you are trying to achieve, it will work 24/7 to help you to achieve your goals. This will help to keep you motivated when you feel like putting your feet up with a glass of wine rather than skipping for fifteen minutes.
Next thing you need to do is go through your cupboards and bin all those unhealthy foods. If you have a lot and cannot bring yourself to put them in the rubbish, give it to your nearest homeless centre where stomach fat doesn’t tend to be an issue. You need to get rid of all white foods so sugar, pasta, rice, cereals are all now off the menu. Add in any diet meals you have bought as these are often filled with sugar replacements which can cause your liver to store fats leading to belly fat. Finally any cakes, biscuits, crisps and candy goes as well. Only when you have cleared your kitchen of all temptation you will be set up for success.
From today you are going to watch what you eat and drink. You are going to eat six small meals a day to get your metabolism moving but also help your internal digestion system to function better. This will reduce fluid retention, gas and bloating and may help to get rid of some of your stomach fat immediately. You are only going to drink water and plenty of it. Some people won’t drink water as they think it leads to fluid retention but it is in fact the opposite. Your body starts to retain fluid when it feels that there is a scarcity of liquid. So drink, drink and then drink some more.
Next you need to think about your level of physical exercise and how you can increase it. Stop taking the lift and use the stairs. Get off the bus or train one stop early and walk the rest of the way to the office and home again. Run up the stairs in your home. Do the cleaning at full speed – housework is a great way to exercise.
Get yourself some Workout DVDs which show you the correct exercise routines to put in place in order to shift that stubborn belly fat. Without concentrating on that particular area but putting all of the other tips into play you will probably find that your waistline is shrinking anyway.
A complete holistic approach to becoming healthier is the fastest way to lose belly fat. Try it for yourself and see!
