    Home Remedies to Reduce Tummy Fat

    Tummy fat, also referred to as belly fat, abdominal fat or stomach fat, refers to fatty tissues that are deposited in the body's midsection around the abdominal organs. According to MedicineNet, it increases the risk of diabetes, heart disease, certain cancers and premature death. A number of home remedies can be used to reduce tummy fat. Before you use home remedies to reduce tummy fat, first consult a health care practitioner.

    Exercise


    According to the Mayo Clinic, the most effective way to reduce tummy fat is through daily, moderate intensity exercise. As you tone your muscles and lose some weight from the exercise, your abdominal section is usually the first area of body fat to begin shrinking. It is essential that you consult with your physician about the proper exercise program that you should follow to reduce your tummy fat. The type and amount of exercise will vary based on your current level of activity as well as your heath goals.

    In addition to exercise, the Mayo Clinic recommends using strength training to flatten your belly and firm your abdominal muscles. The clinic notes that exercising with weights has been shown to be effective in trimming stomach fat.
    Adequate Sleep

    In an April 2009 article on Belly Fat, Deborah Kotz, a senior writer at U.S. News & World Report, reported that getting less than six hours of sleep or more than eight hours can result in an excess secretion of cortisol. Cortisol is a stress hormone that promotes the storage of body fat in the belly. She notes that when the body is in a state of stress, it stores fat in an area, such as the abdomen, where it can easily be burned off as fuel in an emergency.
    Healthy Diet

    According to Dr. Michael Jensen, an endocrinology specialist at the Mayo Clinic, you can shrink your waist size is by lowering your total body fat through healthful eating. In an article published by the Georgia Department of Community Health, he writes that you should reduce your calorie intake by reducing your portion sizes. You should also replace your regular food with healthful foods containing fewer calories. Limiting your alcohol intake to two drinks a day helps to reduce your calorie intake and helps you avoid gaining belly fat.

    Re: Home Remedies to Reduce Tummy Fat

    There are many home remedies you can use to boost fat burn on your belly. Many of them will already be in your cupboard or refrigerator. The right foods can detox your liver and rev your metabolism, helping you to target belly fat. Belly fat is more than a cosmetic concern. It ups risk for a host of health conditions, including diabetes and heart disease. Consuming fat-burning foods and spices will put you well on your way to trading in that rubber tire in the middle for a sleek torso.

    Step 1

    Remove the things in your diet that stress your liver and lower your metabolism, and reduce your calorie intake. A stressed liver cannot properly metabolize fat, says nutritionist Ann Louise Gittleman, Ph.D., author of "The Fat Flush Plan." Liver stressors include processed foods, too many carbohydrates in general, all forms of sugar, artificial sweeteners, caffeine, trans fats and soda. Cut 500 to 1,000 calories from your daily diet to lose 1 to 2 lbs. weekly, the safest and longest-lasting weight loss rate, according to the Mayo Clinic.


    Step 2




    Drink 100 percent cranberry juice or cran-water. Cranberries are high in organic acids that act as digestive enzymes. The enzymes work to gobble up little fatty deposits that get stuck in the lymphatics, Gittleman says. Mix a day's supply of cran-water with 8 oz. unsweetened cranberry juice and 56 oz. of water.
    Step 3

    Consume your omega-3 fatty acids. These target tummy fat, Gittleman says. Fish oil is one great source. Take 6g, which is an overflowing tablespoon, or eat salmon or mackerel twice a week. Also chomp on chia. This ancient super seed is high in protein, is a good source of B vitamins, has calcium and is a high source of antioxidants.
    Step 4

    Get gamma linolenic acid (GLA) and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) into your diet. GLA activates brown fat, often found in overweight people. Many people's bodies don't make GLA from its precursors-vegetable oils like safflower oil-so try a supplement. CLA aids the body in accessing and utilizing stored fat, particularly. This omega-6 fatty acid found in organic beef or can be taken as a supplement.
    Step 5

    Make monounsaturated fats another priority. MUFAs are omega-9 fatty acids that became important components of diet plans like the Flat Belly Diet following studies that show MUFAs rev body fat burn in the belly. MUFAs also are favored by the American Heart Association. The association recommends people replace trans and saturated fats with MUFAs. Cook with olive oil or try sunflower or safflower oil. Eat macadamia nuts, filberts, avocados and olives.
    Step 6

    Sip lemon or lime juice in hot water daily. These both invigorate the liver and help to liquefy fat, which aids in flushing it from your system more quickly. Getting enough water in general is important. Mild dehydration can cause your kidneys to call on your liver for help, reducing the liver's ability to burn fat. This can lead to fat deposits, often in the belly.
    Step 7

    Detox gently by drinking dandelion tea. Add 200mg each of milk thistle and the Oregon grape root to further detox. These supplements are gentle enough to use every day, Gittleman says.
    Step 8

    Eat thermogenic spices to rev metabolism including cayenne and ginger. Consume cinnamon as well as cloves and cardamom to stabilize blood sugar.

    Re: Home Remedies to Reduce Tummy Fat

    It is a difficult task to burn belly fat. This is the most common problem faced by millions of people throughout the world. Even though there are many fad diets, people are still searching for a diet plan that really works. If you are looking for fast methods to reduce pounds quickly for a photo shoot or just for a better lifestyle, there are many great ways to reduce weight. Following are some top foods to burn belly fat.

    Nuts:

    Nuts like peanuts and almonds are good sources of essential fatty acids which play a vital role in weight loss. According to research studies, people who ate nuts every day observed themselves eating less food throughout the day because nuts made them feel full for long periods. Also, nuts contain a good amount of protein with sufficient amounts of carbohydrates.

    Oatmeal:

    Oatmeal is a good source of fiber and the whole grain oats aid in keeping appetite at bay. It has sufficient amounts of carbohydrates and even some protein. It is a good breakfast recipe and provides enough energy to start off the day.

    Olive oil:

    Though olive oil has fat, it is a great source to satisfy the natural urge of the body for fat. However, it has good fat, hence stick to it. It is best to use olive oil than hydrogenated oils that are rich in trans fats.

    Whey protein:

    This is rich in amino acids. It also aids in building a lean body and aids in getting rid of excess body fat. This is best for busy people. Add two tablespoons of whey protein in a to-go drink to make a quick fat burning drink.

    Eggs:

    Eggs are rich in biotin. Biotin assists the body in processing and transferring fats. They are also rich in protein. Actually they have high amounts of protein compared to other foods. This is one of the best foods to burn belly fat.

    Fruit berries:

    Berries are full of fiber naturally that aids in metabolizing fat. This is a great snack for people who like berries. If you are on some diet plan and feel like having some snack, then try berries. They are good sources of antioxidants.

    Whole grains:

    Whole grains contain complex carbohydrates and are also better than processed foods. Consume whole bread and whole grain cereal rather than white processed junk. These also have good amounts of fiber.

    Lean meats:

    Meats like chicken and fish are rich in protein, and have less carbohydrates. These can be consumed after 6pm with no adverse effects. Tuna fish contains essential fatty acids that your body requires for burning belly fat.

    Green vegetables:

    Your mother might have suggested you to include vegetables in your diet because they contain fiber. Fiber is the best ingredient to lose weight. Consume plenty of vegetables.

    Peanut butter:

    Ensure that it is natural peanut butter, rich in essential fatty acids and proteins. Consumption of 1–2 teaspoons of peanut butter every day is good for digestion. It is better to opt for organic peanut butter than other stuff because they contain hydrogenated oils, resulting in accumulation of fat.

    Green Tea:

    A cup of tea charges you in the morning and another cup at noon wakes you up from sleepiness, when you are at work. Substitute regular tea with green tea and you will note the difference in your body. A chemical called EGCG is present in green tea. It stimulates the nervous system and the brain. It enhances blood flow and promotes the process of fat burning.

    Calcium-rich foods:

    All the diet plans that omit milk, tofu, yogurt and other dairy products are trash. Dairy products are rich in calcium which makes your metabolism work correctly. Like whole grains, calcium is responsible for maintaining insulin levels because even a small variation may result in the accumulation of fat at the belly.
