Out of all of the places that the human body accumulates fat, the area over the abdomen is perhaps the most dangerous. Excess belly fat can increase one’s chances of developing a variety of diseases, including type 2 diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, alzheimer’s disease and dyslipidemia. And on top of this, it is the one area that is often most difficult to lose fat.

To start, you can’t spot reduce fat; no matter how many crunches you do, your body will lose belly fat when it’s ready. However, you can speed up the process. We’ll start with the old adage: “abs are made in the kitchen.” Eating a variety of lean meats, fruits and vegetables, and juicing can help you to lose weight and decrease belly fat. Couple this with avoiding saturated and trans fat, and you’ll be well on your way to a noticeable difference in your midsection.

To up the calorie burn, include regular exercise in your healthy weight-loss plan. Cardiovascular exercises that really get your heart rate going will help you to burn fat all over your body. When coupled with strength training, you can help to build muscle, tone your midsection, and increase your overall metabolism.

In the end, your belly may be the last place that your body clings to fat. Remain positive and stick to your goals, and you’ll eventually reap the rewards.
