How do I reduce my pot belly?
July 24, 2011 6:42pm CST
I have added a few kilos recently, in the last few months. Even then it is the least of my concerns. The main concern that I have is that my stomach seems to growing a bit too much. My work schedule is too bad and the night shifts are killing. As much as I try sleeping during the day,the sleep is a pretty disturbed sleep and does not seem enough. Due to this, I sleep, get up eat, go to work, return and then eat and sleep again. Dieting is out of the question as I cannot control hunger. Exercise seems to be a very remote possibility. What should I do?

What can I say but eat more fiber, fiber, and more fiber. Eat both insoluble and soluble. Insoluble fiber is found in nuts and whole grains like oats and brown rice. Soluble fiber is in fruits and vegetables and beans. Researchers have found t hat for every 10 grams of soluble fiber a person consumed daily, 3.7 percent less belly fat was gained over time. so eat more fiber.

I think that I want to support what @deebomb say... eat more fiber (fruit, vegetables...), and my add : drink more water. I read an article, drink 1.5 liter water every morning can help to reduce weight. If you can't, drink more water every day, at least 3 liter. Hope this share with you. Best,

You can always exercise in house, do some stretches, some push-ups and curl-ups. You do not have to pay for a gym especially if they are that far. Also, try to control your hunger by eating fruit and vegetables which are filling your stomach much without adding unwanted calories, like apples, pears and bananas.

if you are big eater, eat two times, morning and noon and avoid third meal if you so prefer take either oats/cornflakes. Drink water at least eight glasses per day and drink water before you take any food and after finishing food you must feel that your belly is full.avoid any kind sweets. u will see the result

Stress does add up more to pot belly. I suggest that exercise will help you reduce it and at the same time eating healthy food when hunger strikes. Try to find time to go the gym or exercise at least cardio exercise like walking or jogging at least for 30 minutes at first then increased it as you go along.

Lose fat is a difficult problem, it's need time,perseverance and persist.Now you falling into a mistake that you want to reduce your pot belly only,because reducing the fat is an system engineering,as the fat reduced around your body,the pot belly can reduced,so,you must change your idea.Then,how to reduce the fat?I think the aerobic exercise and proper diet is fit for you.the aerobic exercise you do must insist at least 30 minuties and more,and the food must have low salt,low fat,with more fruits and vegetables.The last and most important,you must do sports perservancely!

Dear Amit Let's talk about your 'pot belly' issue. This is not an uncommon problem for people who starts to be overweight! You are being to become an 'apple' shaped person. Believe me fatness begins from your stomach or belly. Why? The extra fats starts accumulating in and around you stomach, after which it spreads to the legs and then on to your arms. Secondly don't say that you don't have time. Time will pass with or without your permission. Remember the saying, 'Time and Tides awaits no man.' Period. Thirdly you do not know how to prioritize your time. If you know about the 80/20 principle you would know what is best for your body and your happiness. Please research on the above Pareto Principle of the 80/20 rule. This is my take for now. OK? Thanks. Bro. Joe. GBU.
