In this video, I am going to share with you11 simple lifestyle changes that will help you reduce your belly fat in just 1 week.
Now, this is my friend Priyanka Saxena.
She used to look like this.
Then, within a span of few months, she haslost 23 kg.
And let me tell you she has not done anythingextraordinary.
All she has done is applied these 11 thingsto her life which we are going to discuss right now.
First is, practice drinking 3-4 litres ofwater everyday.
Now I can not stress enough how importantit is to stay hydrated when you are looking to reduce your belly fat.
Water flushes out toxins, improves your bowelmovements and keeps your metabolism up.
Best time to drink water is early in the morningempty stomach.
Make sure you make use of that time and drink3-4 glasses of water in the morning.
One thing I want to request you is that pleasedon’t drink water along with your meals or just before or after meals.
This hinders with the digestion process andit is the last thing that you would need.
Second is eat raw vegetables.
Now carrots, cucumbers, beetroots, cabbage,capsicum, onion, tomato, these are the things that you can easily eat raw.
Just sprinkle lemon juice on it and they areready to go.
Make sure you eat at least one serving ofraw vegetables everyday.
These are rich in antioxidants, fibres, vitamins,minerals which are very essential to cut the lower belly fat.
Third is eat one handful of nuts.
Almonds, cashews, peanuts, walnuts, theseare great sources of healthy fat.
Always remember that good fat cuts bad fat.
So you have to eat one handful of these nutseveryday.
Now, it is totally upto you if you want tohave these in one serving or two servings.
As far as almonds are concerned, you can soakthem but please don’t remove the skin.
It is rich in Vitamin E.
Next is switch tolow fat dairy.
Now dairy products are loaded with saturatedfat.
And saturated fat is one thing which you wantto avoid if you are looking to cut fat from your body.
So make sure you buy low fat versions of milk,curd, paneer and other dairy products.
As far as milk is concerned, toned, doubletoned and skimmed milk are very easily available in the market.
Now, you can use this low fat milk to makepaneer and curd at home.
Next is avoid junk food.
Please remember that sugar and salt are yourbiggest enemies.
And whatever you eat outside is either loadedwith salt or is loaded with sugar.
Where sugar is nothing but empty calories.
Salt, on the other hand, holds water in yourbody and makes you gain weight.
So, if you are looking for fast results, youhave to cut down that junk food out of your diet.
Even at home, minimise the use of sugar andsalt.
Next is start using cooking sprays.
Now, zero calorie cooking sprays is very easilyavailable in the market these days.
Since long we have been using too much oilfor cooking.
When oil burns, it gets converted to bad fat.
And all we are intaking is bad calories.
So using a cooking spray will reduce yourdaily oil intake significantly.
The whole idea is to use as less oil for cookingas possible.
Also instead of using refined oils, startusing better oils like olive oil, coconut oil, flaxseed oil, mustard oil.
Next is sleep.
Now, it has been scientifically proved thatsleeping well keeps your food cravings low and helps you in weight loss.
So make sure you have a sound sleep of 7-8hours every night.
Next is you have to cut down carbohydrates.
Indian eating style is full of carbohydrates.
Now, we have been used to eating 4 chapatisper serving, big bowl of rice, bread, potatoes.
Now, these are very high in carbohydrates,Our body does not utilise all these carbohydrates and all the excess carbohydrates gets storedas fat.
Do you know that for one gram of carbohdydratethat you eat, your body holds 3 grams of water.
If you are serious about fat loss, you haveto cut down on your daily carbohdydrate intake.
Now, have you ever noticed that your bodyfeels full for a longer period of time when you eat roti that when you eat rice.
Well, this is because, we have been used toeating whole wheat roti and white rice.
Where whole wheat roti is a whole grain, acomplex carbohydrate.
On the other white rice is a simple carbohdydratewhich is nothing but the refined version of brown rice.
So make sure you switch to complex carbohydrateslike whole wheat, brown rice, oats and other whole grains.
Complex carbohydrates are high in nutritionand fibre.
They slowly release the energy and keep youfull for a longer period of time.
Next is increase your protein intake.
Now unfortunately in Indian lifestyle, proteinis missing.
Protein is an essential macronutrient forthe body which is responsible for the daily repair of the body, skin and hair health.
Do you know that eating protein reduces yourfood cravings by about 60 percent.
This is because protein naturally has a complexstructure.
So when we eat protein our body finds it alittle difficult to break it down.
As a result, our tummy feels full.
Try eating egg whites in the morning and youwill find that your body feels full for a longer period of time.
And why just egg whites, chicken breast, fish,paneer, lentils, soybeans, soya chunks, pulses, these are all great sources of protein andshould be in your diet on a daily basis.
So next time when you have a meal, make sureit is low in carbohydrates and high in protein.
My last point is workout.
Now, even if you apply these first 10 tips,you are bound to lose fat from your body.
But to make the process faster, it is alwaysbetter to workout.
Now, to get the best possible result, yourworkout should be a combination of resistance training and cardio training.
It is ok if you do not want to join a gymfor resistance training.
You can do body weight training like pushups, pull ups and there are whole lot of body weight exercises that you can do at home.
I had made workout at home series withoutequipment, you can check it out.
Now even girls should do weight training asit is very effective for weight loss.
Please don’t worry that you will get bulkymuscles.
This won’t happen because your body doesnot have that much of testosterone to make you bulky.
So friends, apply these 11 tips.
And if you do that, I assure that in 7 daysyou will see a visible reduction in not only your belly fat but also overall body fat.
