I m 23yrs old i want to lose my belly fat bcoz it sometimes causes pain around my stomach...Is there anything that i can do except exercise i m lazy?

When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea.

To loose adipose tissue work on a cardio mix (walking, running, biking, swimming, circuit training, etc - mix it up). Keep in mind that you can not target one specific area of the body to loose weight, and over time the adipose will decrease in many areas of your body (stomach included). ...Read more
