Start your day with a healthy breakfast and end with a light supper, three hours prior to bed. While eating be slow and chew every bit of the food. In order to have a good diet plan, consult a dietician. Losing belly fat requires that you take in fewer calories than you burn. Include fibrous food in your diet. Fiber in the food helps ensure smooth bowel movement hence flattening the tummy. An adult should drink at least eight glasses of water in a day. Opt for fresh fruit and vegetable juices as well, but not sugary drinks. The alcohols found in sugar-free products should be avoided, in case you have a pot belly. This is because they are not absorbed completely and end up fermenting in the intestine, leading to diarrhea, gas or even distended abdomen. Exercising daily can yield excellent results. A full-body training programme for both cardiovascular and resistance exercise will deliver better, faster results. It is easier and better to jog early in the morning when the body and mind are relaxed and rested other than evening jogs when ones body is tired and stressed out. A morning jog is twice as much more effective than the evening jog. Other altenative forms of exercising include swimming, cycling, skipping and other sport games.
