5 Best Behaviors To Beat Belly Fat

Do you feel like you’re always trying to hide your belly?

Like when you go to choose a top or a long dress to wear, it’s not actually you doing the choosing?

But it’s your belly doing the choosing for you?

I don’t know about you, but if there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s when my insecurities force my hand.

But if you’ve found yourself searching out new clothes to hide your belly, I’m going to ask you to press the pause button for a minute.

And I want to remind you that no matter where you’re at, you can beat belly fat.

Beating Belly Fat

You can.

And I’m confident that if you implement the following behaviors into your everyday life you’ll see incredible results that’ll open up your wardrobe and so much more.

Here are the best behaviors to beat belly fat:

Active Each Day

Think about your day with me for a second.

Do you have specific parts of your day carved out for activity?

Or does most of your day consist around walking into this store and out of that one?

Or does most of your day require you to be fixed to a desk at your 9-5 or even at your own laptop trying to get some work done on your startup business?

I guess what I’m trying to ask is this: When you look at your calendar each day, is activity an afterthought or is it intentional?

In order to beat belly fat, you want to make it intentional.

When you plan out your day, pencil in time for 20-minutes of speed walking, an advantageous exercise to burn belly fat.

You could go for a hike with your children.

You can go to the gym.

Sleep Better

I’m not talking about “sleeping in” here.

Rather, I want you to sleep better.

There’s a huge difference between the two.

First of all, I recommend getting at least 8-hours of sleep if you want your body to perform at its best and burn belly fat.

In one study recorded by Annals of Internal Medicine, researchers tested two groups of people, on the exact same diet for two weeks.

One group slept for 8.5 hours a night while the other group clocked in 5.5 hours of sleep per night.

After two weeks the group that slept 8.5 hours per night lost more fat than the other group…

And that’s not even the enlightening part of the study…

More than half of the weight loss that took place during the 8.5 hours of sleep was fat loss.

These people literally burned fat while they slept.

Here are some tips for you to sleep better: Go to sleep at a time that allows for at least 8 hours of sleep. Don’t look at your phone before you go to bed. Instead, read a book. Drink a calming tea (valerian or chamomile) before you go to sleep.

The bottom line is that one of the best behaviors to beat belly fat is to sleep better.

Make sleep a priority and you’ll literally burn fat with your eyes closed. 

Stress Less

We all get stressed out sometimes…

Unfortunately, chronic stress can keep you from losing weight, and even cause you to gain weight.

But you don’t have to live under the weight of stress.

Becoming self-aware of stress is a behavior that won’t only burn belly fat, but it’ll promote a better quality of life as well.

Try this next time you’re stressed:

When you feel anxious about something, literally point to where you’re feeling anxiety in your body.

Do you feel it in your chest? On your shoulders? In your stomach?

Then, identify how stressed you feel on a scale of 1-10.

Is it a 3? A 6?

And then identify why you are feeling stressed…

When you do this, oftentimes you’ll find yourself like Dorothy did when she discovered that the giant, intimidating Wizard of Oz was actually a little man being a façade.

Now, I’m not saying that all stress isn’t serious.

But most of the stress that we encounter during the day isn’t worthy of your stealing your thoughts and general well being.

Identify your stress. Stress less. This is a beneficial new behavior to beat belly fat.

Stick With Water

Drinking water is crucial for beating belly fat.

First of all, the more water you drink, the less room you’ll have to fill your stomach with food.

Water weight loss

So not only do you want to drink plenty of water throughout the day but also when you sit down to eat a meal, have plenty of water with your meal so that you’ll feel more full faster.

Also, studies have shown that an increased intake of water can boost your metabolism, which results in fat burning.

A healthy metabolism will burn fat even when you sleep, so make sure that you’re drinking plenty of water to fuel your metabolic rate is a must to keep you burning belly fat throughout the day.

Hydration is also the key to healthy nutrient distribution throughout your body.

If you’re dehydrated you’ll debilitate your body’s overall performance, which will negatively affect your fat burning goals, your ability to accomplish them and your general well being.

So I recommend keeping track of the water that you drink throughout the day.

Make sure you drink at least a gallon or two a day.

Try to keep alcoholic beverages, and juices to a bare minimum to see the best fat burning results.

Eat More Soluble Fiber

Dietary fiber is a must if you want to make that belly fat disappear.

One study showed a correlation between a 10-gram increase in soluble fiber intake and a 3.7% lower risk of gaining belly fat.

This could be due to the fact that soluble fiber actually decreases your appetite, and as a result your caloric intake.

According to one study, soluble fiber does this in a natural way, by regulating hormones that more effectively control your appetite.

Research has also revealed that soluble fiber fills your stomach with plenty of good gut bacteria, which is also a necessary component for burning belly fat.

Foods that are high in soluble fiber are flaxseeds, avocados, sweet potatoes, oranges, legumes, oatmeal & more.

Foods rich in FiberBe careful not to overeat these soluble fiber sources, though.

Too much of them can cause belly bloat, cramps, and other unpleasant stomach issues.

Keeping your soluble fiber intake somewhere between 21-25 grams per day will be plenty for you to burn belly fat.

These 5 behaviors are simple, practical and sustainable ways to beat belly fat.

They’re truly everyday ways to reach your goals.

Every time you choose to keep tabs on your water intake, you work to burn belly fat.

Every time you choose to prioritize sleep, you work to burn belly fat.

If you’re consistent with these 5 simple behaviors each day, you’ll love the results.
