Belly fat is not just a problem because it can look bad.
In fact, having lots of fat in the abdominal area is strongly linked to diseases like type 2 diabetes and heart diseases.
Belly fat is usually estimated by measuring the circumference around your waist. This can easily be done at home with a simple tape measure. Anything above 40 inches (102 cm) in men and 35 inches (88 cm) in women is known as abdominal obesity.
If you have a lot of excess fat around your waistline, then you should take some steps to get rid of it even if you’re not very heavy overall.
The Right Exercise
Forget about spot reduction; to reduce excess fat from your midsection, you must lose total body fat. To accomplish this, experts generally recommend eating a healthy diet and committing to a weekly exercise routine that includes at least 30 minutes of moderate cardio on most days and strength training on two days.
More Fruits & Vegetables
There is some evidence that soluble dietary fiber can lead to reduced amounts of belly fat. This should cause major improvements in metabolic health and reduced risk of several diseases. Carb restriction is also a very effective way to lose fat.
