Do you want to lose your belly fat and get a perfectly shaped body? Then this list of science-backed ways is the solution for you.

Shared by a user named "Mind Matter" on platform X, these are realistic methods that will help you step up your fitness regime and will bring visible results in 90 ways. Let’s get into it!

Eat nutrient-dense food:

Nutrient-rich food provides high energy, aids in metabolism to burn fat, and prevents disease and obesity with its ample contents of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.

Get better sleep:

Better sleep is linked to controlled appetite and hunger and improves the metabolism process. To get better sleep, make your bed comfortable and sleep in a completely dark room by 9-10 pm. You should also try to keep your room’s temperature as cool as possible. Follow the 321 rule: don’t eat 3 hours before bed, don’t drink 2 hours before bed and no screen time 1 hour before bed.

Exercise or physical labour:

You can do weight lifting 3 to 5 times a week or can walk 10 to 20k steps a day for better results. Sore muscles boost growth hormone secretion that helps burn fat.

Eat lots of protein:

Protein fills you up and provides essential minerals and vitamins. According to most studies, 0.7 to 1 g of protein per pound of body weight should be consumed per day. Additionally, you can drink 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar by diluting it in water for better digestion.

Avoid people who stress you out:

And spend time with people who exercise, eat healthy, are open-minded, take responsibility, and hold you accountable, so that you can be inspired and stay motivated on your fitness path.

Intermittent fasting:

There are many ways for intermittent fasting including the 16/8 method, eat-stop-eat, 5:2 diet, alternate-day fasting, and more. These weight loss methods provide more clarity, energy, and fewer cravings. 

Drink more water:

Drinking plenty of water promotes healthy skin and you look younger. It also boosts your metabolism and lowers your cravings. Drinking 2-4 litres of water daily depending on the type of your activity is ideal.

Things to avoid:

Avoid alcohol and too much consumption of carbs and sugar as they are related to increased insulin levels which in turn interrupt fat burning.

Don’t try to be perfect:

Trying to be perfect leads to unrealistic expectations that you can’t stop thinking about. So, aim for excellence, not perfection. Consume 80% healthy food and 20% whatever else you want to eat.

Lower your calories:

In your fat loss routine, it’s helpful to have a calorie deficit of 300-500 calories. If you struggle with cravings help yourself with black coffee, sparkling water, drinking more fluid, eating slower and brushing your teeth after supper.

While all these methods will help you achieve your aim of losing belly fat, it’s advisable to check with a medical expert first before committing to any new routine.
