Increasing your body’s fat-burning ability may be easier than you think. Read on for 17 tips on how to lose unwanted body fat, especially around the stomach area.
1. Eat a healthy breakfast.
Eating in the morning can increase your metabolic rate, the process by which your body burns fat. Skipping the most important meal of the day to save calories, may ultimately leave you eating more over the course of the day.
2. Eat a balanced diet, including carbohydrates.
Don’t follow fad diets. Eat a balanced combination of carbohydrates, protein, and raw foods. Carbohydrates are not the enemy, and slow-burning carbs can actually help you feel fuller, longer.
3. Lift weights, the heavier, the better.
Bodies that have higher muscle mass burn more calories at a resting rate than bodies with higher fat content. Period.
