Perhaps you’re actually relatively slim but you still have some belly fat that you just cannot shift, or it could be that you’ve dieted for what seems like forever, but the belly fat just refuses to go?
Maybe you are on a mission to lose weight from all over your body, belly fat included?
Belly fat isn’t just unpleasant to look at; it can also play havoc with your health, putting a strain on your heart, even potentially leading to heart disease.
While a little belly fat won’t do you any harm, too much could.
If your waist measures more than 40 inches (male) and 35 inches or more (female) you are classified as obese.

The thing with belly fat is it’s often the hardest area to lose the excess weight but the good news is, it can be done!

If you can factor in stomach crunches and sit ups every day, maybe first thing in the morning or before you go to bed, you’ll start to tone your muscles and that fat will soon become lean and taut.
You won’t lose weight just by doing stomach crunches but you could lose inches!
You should also factor in some cardio – even if you hate doing exercise, brisk walking for 20 to 30 minutes three times a week will help to melt the fat away.
What about running? Even those of you who’ve never done anything more than run for the bus can run!
You could try an app such as Couch to 5k, which gets you running for half an hour by week 9 and it really works because it’s a slow program that gets you gradually accustomed to running for longer periods.
