It is difficult to ‘spot’ reduce, but eating more fruits and vegetables (because they are low in calories) and exercising will help you burn more calories than you eat, which is necessary for any weight loss plan. Aerobic activities like walking or cycling will burn calories; simply losing weight will allow you to reduce belly fat. Strength exercises (like push-ups and sit-ups) will also strengthen and tone muscles. Eating more fruits and veggies matters when it comes to reducing or maintaining a healthy weight—and it may reduce your risk of many diseases.
