Sporting a Pony Keg Versus the Six Pack Abs You Wanted? Top 10 Tips on Getting Rid of That Belly
#1. Sleep: Most people need 7-9 hours of sleep every night, uninterrupted. Waking up to quickly isn’t a bad thing, but continuous breaks of more than a few minutes during the sleep cycle will surely disturb the process. Those of you that “feel fine” after only 5 hours per night, take a good look at your belly and keep telling yourself how fine you feel
#2. People with the lowest vitamin D levels tend to have the greatest amount of visceral belly fat. Supplementing can lead to belly fat loss.
#3. Take a probiotic supplement to lose belly fat, lower cortisol level, and decrease anxiety
#4. Limit fructose in the diet because it gets in the way of losing belly fat.
#5. Greater EAA and protein intake will help you lose visceral belly fat, increase lean mass, and maximally stimulate muscle protein synthesis
#6. Lose belly fat with total body training and sprints—avoid “15-minute ab” programs
#7. Always eat breakfast and opt for a high-protein, low-glycemic meal.
#8. Eliminate all processed foods from your diet—don’t eat them ever.
#9. Eliminate ALL sugar and all sweeteners—cane sugar, agave, maple syrup—all of it.
#10. Eliminate alcohol, juice, soda, and sports drinks. Stick to water, tea, and coffee.
