== == * It depends on your age, your gender, and your habits. If you're over 40, you're in for a rough road. The older we get, the slower (generally speaking) our metabolism becomes. Younger folks have an easier time of it. Women and men have probably an equally tough time getting rid of belly fat. If your goal is "abs of steel," you will need major discipline. If you just want to be slim, you still need to watch yourself. Habits: eat less fat. Stay away from butter, margarine, and oil. Don't eat fried foods. Bake and broil everything. Eat vegetables without sauces and creams. Fresh fruit. Pasta, no butter. Read the fat content on labels. Keep saturated fat to a minimum. Exercise: walking, aerobics, and Tae-bo-type workouts will be good for metabolism.Sit-ups are good for definition, but don't burn fat. Be careful here: don't hurt you back. If you drink beer, cut back...way back. == == * The other poster gave you excellent advice, but one thing missed ... beer! Alcohol lands on us at an older age as looking bloated and flabby (not like the good old days when we were younger.) If you are serious about dropping that weight then do what the other poster said and stay away from that beer or other Alcoholic Beverages. If you are at a party once a month, BBQ with friends etc., it's OK for one day, but if you drink especially beer or wine every single day the weight will hit you in the middle. * The best thing to do is go to a gym and pay as you go (don't sign a contract.) Tell them what your goals are and learn what exercises will flatten that tummy. I know gyms are expensive, so once you learn this go on the shopping channel (there is a Canadian/American one) and buy a piece of equipment for your home. This will cut down on the cost. * It will take discipline for sure, but it's well worth it. Get that body moving! My husband is 60 and I'm 63 and we are slim and trim. We eat well, I don't drink, but my husband enjoys the odd beer or a glass of wine, but doesn't overdo it on a daily basis. We have managed to keep our bodies in good shape and have a lot more energy and feel better about ourselves. * Here is another good clue that many people don't know. If you love your meat then buy free-range chicken, beef and eggs. Free-range means the meat is not loaded with hormones which can cause weight gain and just makes a person feel generally bloated or not well. It's a little more expensive, but it's worth it and it's a healthier way to eat. Besides fresh veggies and fruit, whole grains, nuts, and back-off on too much bread/buns, drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. This helps keeps your organs working well and flushes out fat and other toxins. Stop drinking liquids 2 hours before bedtime or you could be hop, skipping and jumping up and down to the washroom. * Some of the best belly fat burning foods are Mono Unsaturated Fatty Acids, Avocado, Olive Oils, Pea nuts, Dark Chocolate. And Cardio Exercises + Abdominal Exercises + Diet is the best way to lose belly fat. If possible, do some strength training exercises as they improve the body metabolism and hence you can lose more fat.
