There are different strategies to lose belly fat which more or less depends on your metabolism and willpower. Whatever strategy you decide to use, Fitfam Plus has compiled a list of some useful tips for men to lose belly fat.

Crunches? 

The thing about crunches is that they help build muscle but don’t burn a lot of calories. Due to this, crunches alone are unlikely to help lose belly fat, it has to be combined with cardiovascular exercises like jogging, hiking etc.

Do Some Strength Training

Strength training is great because it is one of the most effective ways to burn fat and build muscle. It is a common type of physical exercise that specializes in the use of resistance to induce muscular contraction which builds strength, anaerobic endurance, and the size of skeletal muscles. Though they don’t burn your belly fat directly, they strengthen your abs and help lower your waist line.

Reduce Alcohol Consumption

When trying to lose belly fat, what you drink is actually very important. It’s a good idea to limit your alcohol consumption to occasional rather than daily affair. This is because alcohol stresses your liver and it has to overwork to clear toxins which can get it in the way of building muscles and negatively affect loss of belly fat.

Do More Standing Exercises than Sitting

Give it a shot. According to Men’s Journal, do more of your exercises standing than sitting, you will expend more calories in the process.

Running

One great thing about running is that it’s a workout you can do anywhere. You don’t need to the go the gym for it. Through running, at an average pace, you can burn up to 600 calories per hour. However, the more intense and faster you run, the more calories you burn. You can walk and jog at intervals to increase calorie burn as well as ease your run.
