Losing weight from your stomach can be extremely difficult because it has a higher number of fat cells that don’t respond as easily to the fat breakdown process. However incorporating certain foods into your diet can help achieve your weight loss goals.
Bananas are also a great source of energy and can help you keep fuller for longer, reducing the need for snacking throughout the day.
Low-fat greek yoghurt is also another great food to add to your diet.
It is rich in calcium and research has linked calcium to lower levels of abdominal fat.
Low-fat yoghurt also contains less calories than full-fat, which will help you lose weight through a calorie deficit.
Meat and dairy products are also packed with protein, helping you to stay fuller for longer.
Exercise is also essential not only for weight loss, but for overall good health.
The NHS recommends Britons should exercise daily, including 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity a week like walking, riding a bike or dancing.
Dr Michael Mosley, known for sharing his weight loss tips, recently explained how exercising might be key to shifting stubborn belly fat.
He said: “Exercise is key for various reasons. It is amongst the best things you can do for a long and healthy life.
“While exercise alone will not help you lose the stubborn fat from round your middle, it can be crucial for helping reduce the risk of regaining fats as well as lowering blood sugar levels and improving insulin sensitivity.
“How best to achieve this though? Research has shown the extraordinary impact that ultra-short bursts of HIIT (high intensity interval training) can have. All in just a few minutes.
“Not only is it effective, but study after study has shown it is much easier to stick to.”
