6 Things To Give Up To Get Rid Of Your Gut
Everyday our body fat levels are changing – either increasing or decreasing. In essence, all you need to do is spend more time burning fat than storing it, and you’ll get rid of the beer belly. Sounds easy right? Well, there isn’t just one formula to losing weight. Searching it online will bring up millions of articles listing a million different reasons.
While exercising regularly is key when trying to lose weight, eating the right things is actually more important. This is why we bring to you a post over at Men’s Fitness, which have six bad habits you need to kick right now:
1. Drinking Diet Soda
It’s calorie-free, but it still comes with a cost. New research published in the American Journal of Public Health suggests that diet soda drinkers take in more total calories throughout the day than those who skip the fizzy beverage
2. Eating Out Too Often
When eating out, zero in on certain words on a restaurant menu: Anything breaded, fried, crusted, smothered, or creamed will likely be higher in fat than something that is grilled, broiled, or sautéed.
According to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, smokers have larger waist circumferences than nonsmokers due to more abdominal fat and less muscle mass, which are direct effects of smoking. Do your lungs (and waist) a favor and drop the cancer sticks.
Chucking out these unhealthy habits will help you lose that stubborn beer gut in no time. In addition, you’ll be improving your overall wellbeing and lowering your chances of developing diabetes, hypertension or serious heart problems. So what are you waiting for? Check out the article above and get yourself in awesome shape for the summer.
