A To Do Plan – How to lose belly fat fast for women

There is a lot of content and advice about how to lose belly fat on the internet, not really just on the internet but everywhere. Consuming a lot of information can be overwhelming sometimes leaving you very confused, not knowing what to do or where to start. You will actually be left with a question (which foods, exercises, advice or tips should I include in my routine?). In this article I try to make things a little easy for you by developing an easy plan on how to lose belly fat fast for women.

1. Eat healthy

I try to emphasize this almost in every article I have written on this platform that losing fat is a combination of eating right and exercising. However, eating right contributes much more than exercising. Sometimes we try to complicate every thing by over thinking. Someone will ask themselves – which is the right/healthy food to eat? In my article ‘how to diet and lose belly fat’ I talk about the types of foods and the recommended quantities you should eat depending on your circumstances.

Honestly speaking, I cannot tell you exactly what specific food you should eat. For example, I cannot say eat rice and beef for breakfast (why?), because what you eat depend on what is available to you. You need to learn which food groups the food available to you belong and what main nutrients you can get from the food available to you. Once you have that, you can then decide how to combine the food groups available to you to come up with the balance diet. I should however, tell you that a healthy diet contains enough macro and micro nutrients. I can also tell you to avoid take always and try to eat more of home cooked meals. The home cooked meals are good because you can control how much oil, the type and how much salt you can put in them.

2. Exercise

The benefit of exercising is widely published, if you still do not know, get out of the rock you been hiding under (just kidding). Make use of Google search. Again, I will not tell you what exercises you should do. There are many types of exercises out there. Do the type that is convenient to you. Don’t spend your entire day in the gym, just select a few that can really get you sweat, do them 30 minutes or an hour either every day or two to three times a week.

3. Drink liters of water

I cannot over emphasize this enough. Water is a miracle drink. It can cure everything. Yes, I said everything. To help you improve your water intake, develop a habit of carrying a water bottle wherever you are/go and sip on it regularly. There are also apps that you can install in your cellphone to remind you to drink water.

4. Go easy on sugar

know this is better said than done because cutting out sugar off your diet will either require you to find a replacement or you just fall right back to it. The healthier replacement to sugar especially for sweetening is honey but, honey is not blame free. Sugar is sugar no matter what type. In addition, honey is not cheap where I live, but if you can afford it go for it my sister. Myself, I try to really use as little sugar as I can. But, they say follow what they say and not what they do. The truth is cutting sugar from your diet will help you a great deal in losing your belly fat. Try to go easy on sweet foods like cakes, desserts, sweets, cookies, etc.

5. Reduce salt

Nowadays, we have gotten ourselves used to salted foods that we add it even to foods that should not be salted like avocado and maize meal ‘pap’ (this is true to some people where I live). I should also mention that we should be careful about the excessively salted foods that we buy such as the fresh fried potato chips, crispy chips and other snacks.

6. Eat healthy fats

You have probably heard that some fats are healthy while some are not. Foods like avocado, fish, seeds and nuts contains good cholesterol. Unsaturated oil such as olive, sunflower, canola and peanut are considered good. So, include them in your diet. I should also tell you that too much of a good thing can be bad especially, when it comes to oils and fats.

7. Do not skip breakfast

Breakfast is the important meal of the day. But why? You may ask yourself. Just imagine. Before the next morning how long did your body go without food? Let say you had your supper at 6pm, 7pm, 8pm the previous day. Depending on what time you wake up in the morning, your body would have gone 9 to 11 hours without food by the time you wake up in the next morning. Now, do you really want to go another 6 to 8 hours without food up to lunchtime at midday? I am sure thinking about it from that perspective, you may realize the importance of breakfast.

Breakfast is important to kick start your day with enough energy to be able to be productive. It will also help your body to function well resulting in long term benefits. By nature the body will always find an alternative source of energy when you fail to provide them. This can come with negative consequences in a long run because it may cause confusion in the way the body functions.

8. Have enough sleep

Have you noticed that when you stay up at night you eat more? I have seen this especially when traveling nighttime. You will see someone snacks or eating at midnight or even at 2am in the morning. When you do not sleep enough your body will produce more leptin and ghrelin, the two hormones that are responsible for alerting you that you need to eat. Getting enough sleep will not only help you burn more fat but also a healthy habit.

Do you know of anything else we can add to this plan? Feel free to add your opinions below. If have any question or any comment, I am more than willing to interact with you.
