AVOID SUGAR-SWEETENED DRINKS
Liquid sugar is even worse in this regard. Liquid calories don’t get “registered” by the brain in the same way as solid calories, so when you drink sugar-sweetened beverages, you end up eating more total calories
This includes sugar-sweetened beverages, sugary sodas, fruit juices and various high-sugar sports drinks.
Keep in mind that none of this applies to whole fruit, which are extremely healthy and have plenty of fiber that mitigates the negative effects of fructose.
DON’T DRINK TOO MUCH ALCOHOL
Alcohol can have health benefits in small amounts but is seriously harmful if you drink too much
Research suggests that too much alcohol can also make you gain belly fat.
Cutting back on alcohol may help reduce your waist size. You don’t need to give it up altogether but limiting the amount you drink in a single day can help.
DO AEROBIC EXERCISE (CARDIO)
Aerobic exercise (cardio) is an effective way to improve your health and burn calories.
Studies also show that it’s one of the most effective forms of exercise for reducing belly fat.
BREATHE BEFORE BED
Spend 2-3 minutes in bed each night daily
Pragmatic breathing. Research has shown the best technique is to breathe in for four seconds, hold for four seconds with your tummy full of air, exhale out of your nose for four seconds, then hold an empty tummy for four seconds and repeat
