If you deprive yourself entirely, chances are you’re going to crave beer like never before. Also, having beer in moderation helps reduce stress and lowers your risk of heart disease, if German experts are to be believed. To start with, cut down your beer intake by half and work your way down to one-third. Stay healthy by eating small, healthy meals through the day that include low-fat meats, whole grains, raw and fresh fruit and vegetables along with foods that contain soluble fibre.
Interval training is extremely effective at burning fat, but to initiate sustained weight loss, you need to boost your body’s aerobic conditioning—which is what pushes your body to use fat reserves as fuel, thereby eliminating it.
If you skip all forms of fat to make way for beer calories, you’re not helping yourself lose the beer belly. Good fats are crucial when it comes to boosting your metabolism, burning fat and reducing your cravings for unhealthy fats.
Once you’ve made sustained efforts to lose belly fat, follow it up with toning exercises to help tone your muscles and work your way towards a visibly flat tummy.
Beer is extremely calorific as far as alcoholic beverages go and a lot of ardent beer lovers make the mistake of skipping meals to accommodate or justify consuming calories through a pint or 2 of beer. Skipping meals makes your metabolism sluggish, which means when you glug down a pint at the end of the day, it becomes harder for your body to burn the calories.
