More Tips and Strategies for Losing Weight and Getting a Flat Belly.
If you're looking for a diet to lose belly fat, then any healthy diet will do. There is no specific diet that can help you lose fat just around your belly. But it is very essential to realize that diet holds the key to getting there. Any healthy diet can do the trick or at least get you on the road to being fit and lose weight, and by extension lose belly fat.
First of all, you want to have a balanced low calorie diet. One suggestion is to “eat around the outside of the supermarket.” That is, don’t go into the isles where all the processed food is. Instead, eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables as well as a moderate amount of lean meat and low fat dairy products. Bulk up with natural foods like whole grains and legumes.
If you have not tried calorie counting, a simple way to start is to eat 500 fewer calories than you would in order to maintain your weight. A 30 year old person who is 5’10 and weighs 180 pounds needs about 2700 calories to maintain their weight. By eating only 2200 calories from healthy foods, will ensure the body enough nutrition while forcing it to use the extra fat.
And as I alluded to above, your diet needs to be concerned not only with the total number of calories but the kinds of calories. You need to take in at least 1 gram of protein per day for every pound you weigh. You also need some fat in your diet. A diet of 30:20:50 in the ratio protein: fat: carbohydrates makes a lot of sense for a woman who wants the fastest way to lose weight, and especially, belly fat. Fish oils are the best kind of fat for this purpose.
In just a couple weeks, following the above directions, and of course in conjunction with other common sense practices, you will find yourself shedding the pounds, and losing an inch or two around your waist. You should have lost an inch from your waist, and lost 5 pounds. Then you can build on your progress and improve your strategy. And in relatively no time you'll feel your goal of a flat belly very achievable.
