Many people make a double effort to get rid of visceral fat or that accumulated in the rumen area in particular, but there are simple changes in lifestyle that help remove this fat, or at least reduce it.
According to the Evergreen Life website, there are four simple ways that can help burn belly fat:
Beware fast food
Refined carbohydrates and sugars contribute greatly to our fat storage.
Therefore, try to reduce the sugars found in cakes, sweets, biscuits, chocolate, soft drinks, breakfast cereals, yogurts, etc.
Free sugars are also found naturally in honey, unsweetened fruit juice, vegetable juices and smoothies.
Dr. Brian Fisher recommends getting less than 30g of free sugars per day. “It’s worth remembering that this is the maximum, not the recommended amount,” she explains.
Eat healthy fats
She also advised the specialist doctor to overcome hunger and reduce insulin spikes with healthy protein choices.
Avoid greasy hamburgers, bacon and processed sausage in favor of fish and lean meats, such as turkey or chicken, beans and free-range eggs.
“Eating healthy fats such as extra virgin olive oil, avocados, and walnuts can benefit insulin balance, gut bacteria, hormones, and weight management,” she added.
Sports and movement
Losing visceral fat comes with a combination of healthy food and a good physical fitness regimen.
And research has found that high-intensity interval training (also known as HIIT) is the best way to lose visceral fat.
It also helps increase your insulin sensitivity. HIIT essentially involves short bursts of intense exercise alternating with low-intensity recovery periods.”

Stay away from alcohol
“Alcohol makes you gain weight around your waist without you even realizing it,” said Dr. Fisher.
It is very easy to consume hundreds, even thousands, of liquid calories. Amounts of alcohol also negatively affect the liver
It is reported that excessive visceral fat can increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, breast cancer, bowel cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
