8 Ways to Lose Belly Fat and Lead a Healthier Life  

Maintaining a trim midsection does more than just improve your appearance; it can also help you live longer.  

When dieting, you cannot directly target abdominal fat. However, losing weight will help shrink your waistline; more importantly, it will help reduce the dangerous layer of visceral fat.

1. Try curbing carbs instead of fats.

On both diets, around 2 to 3 pounds of healthy lean tissue were lost along with the fat, indicating that the low-carb diet resulted in a substantially greater fat loss percentage.  

Finally, Stewart recommends choosing a healthy eating plan that you can stick to. A low-carb strategy has the advantage of requiring no calorie counting—it simply includes learning to make better eating choices.  

2. Think eating plan, not diet.

Physical exercise promotes the loss of abdominal fat. "One of the biggest benefits of exercise is that you get a lot of bang for your buck on body composition," Stewart explains.  

3. Keep moving.

Even modest strength training combined with aerobic exercise helps grow lean muscle mass, causing you to burn more calories throughout the day, both at rest and when exercising.  

4. Lift weights.

5. Become a label reader.

Compare and contrast brands. Some yogurts, for example, claim to be low in fat, but they include more carbohydrates and added sugars than others, according to Stewart.  

Packaged products and snack meals frequently include high levels of trans fats, added sugar, and added salt or sodium—all of which make weight loss harder. 

6. Move away from processed foods.

The number on your bathroom scale may not vary much as you gain muscle mass and reduce fat, but your jeans will become tighter.  

7. Focus on the way your clothes fit more than reading a scale.

According to research, if your friends and family are eating healthier and exercising more, you are more likely to do so as well. 

8. Hang out with health-focused friends.
