The only way to reduce belly fat is to reduce fat from your entire body. No matter how many situps and crunches you do, spot-reducing fat from one area of the body isn’t possible.
Eliminating excess fat around the middle benefits your health, because according to Harvard Medical School, visceral fat, which lies around your abdominal organs, increases your risk of diseases and medical conditions, such as high cholesterol, Type 2 diabetes, certain cancers, hypertension, stroke and heart disease.
With a proper diet, regular exercise and small lifestyle adjustments, you can rapidly reduce belly fat. Consult your doctor before changing your eating habits or starting a new exercise routine, especially if you have a preexisting health condition.
