Many would like to see the fat around their belly disappear. Some go to great extreme and it works for them. But many others find it very difficult to lose that fat. Moreover, many focus on dieting, belly specific workouts or doing some aerobics. No doubt, they help but the going gets tough. So rather than focusing on one or two approaches, the problem needs to be attacked on multiple fronts. These include cardio, strength training, sleep, stress, food, smoking & alcohol, and perseverance. If done with intensity and especially accompanied by sweating, cardio burns fat throughout the body. Also, strength training builds up muscles. And the more muscle mass you build, the more fat gets burned. Moreover, muscles burn fat even when you are resting. Furthermore, getting adequate sleep helps control fat. Also, stress causes you to gain weight. So it’s important to relieve stress. In addition, what you eat has a huge impact on your waistline. And, if you don’t want fat to get accumulated around the belly, stop smoking. Finally, drinking too much alcohol causes you to eat more and gain weight. Because it takes time for the body to get rid of excess fat, perseverance is needed to succeed. The infographic illustrates these approaches. While the related article goes into more detail.
