6 Ways To Lose Belly Fat Without Exercising

Helpful tips for ab fabs.

Maintaining a trim tummy isn’t just for you to look good. Belly fats are unhealthy, especially visceral fat. Unlike subcutaneous fat just underneath your skin, visceral fat is found deep in the abdominal cavity, surrounding your organs. This increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and breast cancer in women.

Contrary to popular belief, doing hundreds of crunches will only strengthen abdominal muscles, but doesn’t necessarily burn fat. To lose belly fat, you have to reduce total-body fat. Here are some ways to achieve absolutely fabulous abs without having to do a single sit-up.

Lower Stress Levels

Stress increases the brain’s production of cortisol, which can cause extra fat storage in the abdomen. Yoga or deep breathing can help reduce stress and cut anxiety. These two activate your body’s parasympathetic nervous system to help you automatically relax.

Sleep More

Cortisol, the same hormone that increases when you’re stressed out also affects sleep-deprived individuals.  When you’re tired and craving energy, you often turn to food because cortisol also makes you feel hungrier. Aim for at least seven to eight hours of slumber per night to avoid this situation.

Consume More Food with Probiotics

Dairy products that contain probiotics, which are live good bacteria can help ease digestive woes that cause bloating. Include food like kefir and yogurt as long as the label indicates it contains live and active cultures.

Avoid Eating On The Go 

Sit down to enjoy your meals as it helps you focus on what you are eating. Eat with your mouth closed, and avoid talking while you are chewing as it will help reduce the amount of air that would otherwise get trapped in your stomach. Try to chew more as research shows calories can be reduced by as much as 12 percent by chewing each mouthful 40 times rather than 15.

Work on your posture

Hunching over your devices can throw your posture off. A good posture not only makes you look slimmer, but it engages your stomach muscles too. Try to sit with your back straight and shoulders back, and place both feet on the floor to improve your posture.

Say No To Processed Food

Salt is hidden in everything from soups to pasta sauces to even sweet things like packaged cakes. Switch processed foods in favour of fresher ingredients and your belly will be thankful. Not only will you lose the salt-bloat but you’ll also lose the extra empty calories and weight.
