Anyone who seriously wants to lose weight, and burn stubborn belly fat and keep it off should follow these steps:
1. Consult your physician and check whether it is at all feasible for you to lower your calorie consumption and increase the amount of physical exercise that you do.
2. Create a balanced diet consisting of food that has very few calories in it that leads to losing about 4 to 5 KG per week. Fruits and vegetables should be eaten around 5 servings a day, and be sure to include whole grains, milk products and meat too. This is an extremely healthy diet that you can follow and is guaranteed to reduce weight.
3. Exercise or physical activity of any kind is a must if you want to lose weight. You don't have to necessarily start off by going to the gym hardcore. You simply have to start somewhere by staying active. Taking the stairs, instead of the elevator, or the escalator, or try parking farther and walk the distance instead.
When You Eat
Skipping meals is not the way to lose weight, as doing so can slow down your metabolism. Once again your body thinks there is a famine and, hence, it stores food. Eat small meals, sprinkled throughout the day to keep your blood sugar levels and your metabolism steady.
Weight and Health Profile
High blood pressure, several diseases like Type 2 diabetes and coronary artery complications are some of the many fallouts of being overweight and obese. The circumference of your waist and most importantly, your body mass index are dead giveaways when it comes to knowing the amount of body fat you have, and the health risks you might run into because of it.
BMI is mostly a very dependable way of estimating body fat, especially for people between the ages of 19 and 50. Exceptions are women who are pregnant and breast feeding, bodybuilders, athletes and patients.
