Lots of reasons: Increased belly fat can be present for many reasons. The root cause of your belly fat would dictate the secret of getting the weight off. I would recommend you get in for a complete evaluation to investigate the root cause. You need an evaluation of your hormones, insulin, body type, body composition, and compete physical.

See doctor first: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing). 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. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more

Doing crunches will build muscle, but to get rid of the fat around the midsection you need to eat right. ...Read more

Right exercise: Hormones drive the deposition of fat around the bellies of men. Men tend to store excess fat in the visceral, or abdominal, region. Abdominal fat breaks down more easily and enters the chemical processes related to disease quicker than fat located in other parts of the body.

I am 198 lbs. Every time I exercise, I end up straining something in my body. I also lose weight only in my legs, arms, and face. How can I loose belly fat?

Nutrition: The problem with 'belly fat' is that it's so easy to gain it and so hard to lose it. Try to focus on nutrition first, and avoid carbs like bread, rice, potato, pasta, and desserts. For exercise, try to work on getting cardio fitness rather than weight training. As you burn more calories and eat healthier, the mid-section body fat will slim down. ...Read more

In: In order to lose weight, your caloric intake must be less than your energy expenditure. To calculate your energy expenditure and your basal metabolic energy needs, you can go to: http://www. Health-calc. Com/diet/energy-expenditure-advanced. Using this, you should carefully track your food intake, counting the calories on the food and drink you take in daily. You can either decrease your calorie intake, or increase your energy expenditure by increasing your activity. Clearly exercise has a major impact on how much energy you expend. A nutritionist can assist you with your diet and provide some tools to count your calories. ...Read more
