You can effectively lose belly fat without becoming overwhelmed with diet plans and exhaustive exercise routines. Simple changes in diet and engaging in some type of exercise will help greatly. Starving yourself won't be very effective and the weight will come back on if you don't lose it correctly.

Incorporate oils such as olive, flax seed and sunflower into your diet.

Foods such as avocado and olive can also be added to your diet to fight
the bulge. Simply adding nuts such as cashew, pine and sunflower to
salads or keeping on hand for snacks will also help a great deal.
Cut out bad carbohydrates. Choose whole grain breads, rolls, cereals
and rice. Not only will these foods
go far in burning belly fat, they
help you feel full longer so you eat less. Cut refined sugar out of
your diet too.
Drink more water. It is recommended that you drink at least 64 ounces
of water a day, but increase this up to as much as 80 ounces. For added
benefit, drink ice water. Your metabolism has to work harder to warm
the water and an increased metabolism helps with belly fat loss and
overall weight loss.
Increase exercise to lose belly fat. Exercising can be as simple as
walking as often as possible, bike riding or swimming. Check with your
doctor before beginning any intense exercise program, especially if you
have health conditions or have been living a sedentary lifestyle.
