My man you have a long way to go…
This is me at 27% body fat and being Skinny Fat, unfortunately, I have it all deposited in my belly and face.
Belly fat is bad and dangerous. Not only it looks ugly but it can cause havoc in your body.
Belly fat is visceral fat which is the fat that surrounds the organs like the liver.
When thinking of losing weight—Think of losing fat and building muscle at the same time.
Here are 10 solid ways you can get rid of belly fat. Be consistent, build certain eating and exercise habits that will help you sustain it.
After 6.5 months of applying the strategies I will discuss in a while I looked like this:
12% Body Fat
And now many years after that transformation, my belly is as flat as ever. Here is my current picture:
10% Body Fat
1 First thing first. Join a gym. And start weight training.
2 Start with HIIT.
3 Don’t over train and workout no more than 6 hours a week
4 If you want to do cardio it’s ok. But don’t overdo it. No more than 2 hrs a week
5 Walk a lot. Save yourself from chronic sitting

Let’s discuss diet and nutrition.
1 Stay away from sugar or anything refined that raises your blood sugar rapidly— chocolates. Pastries, doughnuts, white rice/bread, fruit juice, soda
2 Never eat just carbs. Always add a generous serving of protein and healthy fats. This slows down digestion and less insulin is released.
3 Practice intermittent fasting. I credit this pattern if eating to my success
4 Go low carb from time to time. Avoid grains, rice, fruits for about a week every 1–2 months. Ideally, go on a detox and cleanse your system. Check out my 11- day detox diet.
5 Detox is not a hoax but a legitimate way to lose belly fat.
Leading experts like Dr Mark Hyman supports a good detox from time to time.
6. Include krill oil, walnuts, almonds, coconut oil, avocados in your diet. These superfoods will reset your system and make you a fat burning machine.
7. Optimize your gut bacteria. Eat yogurt, buttermilk and other fermented products like kimchi, sawyer kraut etc. This is so important. Your gut communicates with your brain and choices what foods you’ll crave!
8. Eat sprouts.
9. Eliminate processed food from your diet. Anything fried is a big no no. These foods cause inflammation which then causes insulin resistance.
10. Do whatever it takes to add a LOT of veggies in your diet. See how I manage to include veggies which all my meals. There are phytonutrients that we haven’t discovered yet. They play a super important role in our body.
