Six quick tips to reduce tummy fat

1. CLA can be used to eliminate belly fat faster - According to the International Journal of Obesity ... People who took CLA (Conjugated Linolenic Acid) reduced tummy fat from the midsection by 3 inches without the need to diet or change their lifestyles.

2. Make sure that at least 30% of your total calories come from protein and eat more raw vegetables in order to eliminate abdominal fat faster.
Researchers at the University of Colorado found that people who had most of the fat stored in their belly tend to reduce abdominal fat faster when their diet is high in protein and healthy fats.
3. Try to eliminate excess water body weight that makes your belly look bigger than it really is. You can eliminate excess water weight from your body by avoiding excess sugar and salt and drinking more water.
4. If you are overweight and still have a big belly or a beer belly that protrudes from your figure - you may need to strengthen your muscles TVA (Transverse abdomen) to flatten your belly, or protuberant belly which indicates that you have large amounts of abdominal fat.
5. Add low in calories yogurt to your diet - yogurt is the perfect combination of protein, fiber and healthy fats to keep you filled longer (or will not allow you hunger for long periods of time) and also helps reduce fat from your belly.

A study by the University of Tennessee found that individuals who included yogurt in their diets to lose weight, lost 81% more abdominal fat than the others who did not include yogurt in their diets.

The calcium in yogurt and other dairy products helps your body burn more fat, calcium and limits the amount of new fat accumulated by your body.
6. Avoid stress because stress causes your body to release a hormone called cortisol which causes your body to gain abdominal fat.

* Cortisol makes you feel very hungry and you tend to eat too much to calm down in stressful situations in your life.
* Most of the fat is accumulated around the abdominal region because most of the cortisol receptors are found in the area of your tummy.
* You need to prevent the fat in the belly by avoiding emotionally and mentally stressful situations. Practice relaxation techniques to stay calm.
