Judicious combination of Fitness and diet will surely help to lose body fat
belly fatGoing on a strict diet is one of the best ways to lose belly fat. But, if you are only on a diet without physical exercise, you will not succeed in achieving your aim. 
Exercise not only helps in burning more calories, but if you combine it with low-calorie and healthy diet, you will also lose abdominal fat steadily.

Make Small Changes to your Diet

Making small and significant changes in your regular diet makes a big difference when you are trying to lose belly fat.

Starvation diets, fad diets and quick fixes will eliminate some of the vital food groups from your daily meal plan, such as fats and carbohydrates. Although you will start losing weight and fat from the mid-section at a rapid pace, you will become weak day by day. Eating excessive amounts of any food causes weight gain.

Similarly, restrictive diets cause cravings and deprivation. The crux is that you should learn how to balance your calorie consumption – a balance between calorie consumption and calorie output has to be attained by controlling your portion size and incorporating a wide range of nutritious foods.

Diet rich in fruits, vegetables, fiber, and whole grains are quintessential for your health and overall fat loss. These foods create a fuller feeling so that it doesn’t lead to hunger-induced binge eating. If you eat healthy foods, you can also eat more, as these foods are not loaded with too many calories.

Ban on Carbohydrates – A Myth!

All weight loss diets ban carbohydrates but, carbohydrates are one of the most important sources of energy for the body. Carbohydrates convert energy into glucose and sugar, and transport the same through bloodstream. While simple carbs converts to sugars fast, and spikes the insulin levels, causing frequent hunger pangs, complex carbs can give you slow and steady results. Restrict your simple carb consumption, and include healthy doses of complex carbs that gradually release in your bloodstream. Good sources of complex cabs are broccoli, asparagus, celery, apples, whole grain products, eggplant and pears.

Fiber and Insulin

The body can metabolize simple sugars that cause blood glucose spikes. As the blood glucose count of the body rises, more insulin is produced. Insulin is one of the vital hormones that help in regulating blood glucose levels. Insulin spike is a cause of fat storage and weight. Therefore, having adequate fiber can decrease these spikes.
Fruit skin contains natural sources of fiber, such as apples, guava, pears, citrus fruits and berries. The ones to avoid are bananas, mangoes, grapes, dates and pineapples.


The role of exercise is undoubtedly vital for losing belly fat. Diet alone cannot be very effective in losing fat from the belly. Thus, you must include resistance training, strength training, interval training, and cardio exercises in your daily routine.

Exercises help in targeting the fatty zones of the body. They also allow the body to burn more calories, and increase your metabolic rate, which, in turn, promote fat loss from various parts of the body, including the belly area.
