Let us talk about the kind of diet you must follow to get a flat belly.


a) Artificial sugar is a strict no-no. It can be in the form of desserts or drinks. You must avoid added sugar as much as possible as it only leads to slow metabolism and concentration of fat in your belly region.


b) Protein must be included in your diet. This not only helps you lose belly fat but also ensures that you do not crave for food round the clock. Similarly, add fiber to your diet.


c) Carbs in the form of junk food, candies etc. just lead to deposition of fat in your belly area. You must follow a low carbs diet if you wish to lose inches around your waist.


d) Drinking water helps clean up your system by removing all the toxins. Keep your body hydrated and energized by drinking a lot of water throughout the day.


e) Alcohol must be avoided. It not only increases your calorie intake but also adds fat around the tummy region. Not only that, it makes you feel bloated and can seriously damage your exercise and diet regime.


f) You can also choose to add coconut oil and green tea to your diet. They are seen to have components that help lose weight.
