7 Tricks to Get Rid of Annoying Belly fat
Belly fat is infuriating. It is obnoxiously persistent and acts as a constant reminder every time you slide on your skinny jeans that your New Year’s fitness goals (from the past five years) have yet to be met.
While there is no easy way to get rid of it, these points are proven to help fight fat in the best ways possible.
1. Wake up at the same time every morning
It sounds crazy, but a study by Brigham Young University discovered women who woke up at the same time every morning had lower body fat than those whose wake up times varied by more than 90 minutes.
2. Get enough sleep
Healthy adults need about seven to nine hours of sleep each night.
Not sleeping long enough builds fat up around your organs, according to a 2010 study by Wake Forest University School of Medicine. The study discovered there is a whole lot more to fat than just your diet. Those studied who got five hours or less of sleep a night had a large increase in visceral fat (dangerous fat around your organs).
3. Prioritize yoga and meditation
Yoga and meditation are stress relievers, and lowering stress is vital to keeping your body healthy. Stress can make you gain weight, because it heightens a hormone called cortisol. In the long run, cortisol increases your appetite and makes your body crave sugary, fatty foods.
