Reducing Belly Fat

I saw this article on FB and it strikes me to post something here. Yes. Belly Fats. I am sure many out there are facing the same problem too. For BTB, I am sure we want to get rid of these extra baggage fast before the fitting day right. Hmm...let's see

1) Reduce Sugar - This is a bit tough but it is still possible. I have been avoiding it as much as I can. Less Carbonated drinks. Coke is a No No! and yes..It's sugar that makes us fat..not Fats! If you know what I mean. Teh Tarik have been my favourite..( Energy Booster tao) but eversince I wanted to lose weight..I have been avoiding it as much as I can. I think I only like have it occasionally when I have the urge. Maybe 2-3 cups a month. Power kan! haha.

2) Consume Healthy Fats - what is healthy fats??? Haha..I have absolutely no idea soo...I google. Google is the best tool! So this is what I found. So now I need to adjust my diet .

Fats are being categorised into 4 types.

3. No white Carbs - It says it all..Any Carbo which is white. Avoid it & exchange it for whole -grain.
    Maybe Exchange White Rice with Brown Rice. White Bread with Whole Grain Bread.

4.  2 - 3 L of Water Daily - Wah this is tough! I know water is essential to us and we need to drink enough water. But I'm the type who is so difficult to drink water lor!!

5. Manage Stress - Hmm...Maybe at this moment, my stress level is low.Wait till I start preparing for the wedding. Hee!!!

6. Increase veggies Intake - I guess I have no problem with greenies :) I can just choose those I like and increase the intake.

7. Eat Lean Proteins - I think I am ok with this. I am not a beef lover, so I normally eat chicken or fish. In any case, if you may not know what are Lean Proteins. Well i can say, fish is the healthiest lean protein. Chicken without the skin. Eggs without the yolks.Low Fat Dairies.

8. Move Your Body - It simply means. Exercise. Yes I no worries for me..just need to force the lazy bum to go for a jog or work out..haha

9. Fresh lemon in warm water - Hmm..I did this before but have not done it since. Maybe I need to start doing this regularly

10. Love the body you have to while you work to the body you want - Agree. Nothing more I have to say.
