How to Get Rid of Belly Fat in One Week

Visceral fat, also known as belly fat, is fat that is stored in and around your abdominal organs. Cancer, high blood pressure, stroke, dementia, heart disease, and diabetes are all risks associated with it. [1] Large amounts of weight or excess body fat, particularly visceral or belly fat, cannot be lost in a week. To become healthier and lose dangerous belly fat, you'll need to make long-term changes to your diet, exercise routine, and lifestyle. However, within a week, you can begin to make some positive, health-promoting lifestyle changes.

Including Beneficial Foods in Your Diet to Help You Lose Weight

Consume the right kinds of fat. According to studies, eating the right types of fat, such as monounsaturated fats, can help reduce belly or visceral fat by up to 20% when compared to low-fat diets.

  • Monounsaturated fats are a type of fatty acid that has been linked to a lower risk of heart disease, better diabetes management, and improved blood vessel function.
  • Despite the fact that monounsaturated fats are considered healthy, they are still high in calories. 

  • These should not be added to an unhealthy diet or unhealthy fat sources. These should be used instead of trans and saturated fats, which are unhealthy fat sources.
  • Monounsaturated fats can be found in olive oil, olives, nuts, seeds, nut butter, avocado, and canola oil.
  • Olive oil, grapeseed oil, or avocado oil can be used instead of butter or lard.

Consume lean protein.

Lean protein sources will help you lose weight by keeping you satisfied for longer during the day.

  • Make sure to include a lean protein source in each meal. Measure out a 3-4 oz (21-28 g) serving to stay within your calorie limit.
  • Leaner protein sources such as chicken, turkey, fish, beans/lentils, eggs, low-fat dairy, and nuts should be substituted for fatty proteins such as high-fat cheese, red meat, and sausage.

Fresh fruits and vegetables should be included in every meal.

Produce should take up at least half of your plate. These low-calorie foods are high in nutrients and can aid weight loss and belly fat reduction.

  • Calorie restriction is the most effective way to lose belly fat. The low-calorie nature of fruits and vegetables on half your plate helps to reduce the overall calorie content of your meals.
  • 1 cup of vegetables, 2 cups of leafy greens, or 1/2 cup of fruit should be measured out. At each meal, serve 1-2 servings.

Choose foods that are high in whole grains.

When it comes to reducing belly fat and getting rid of dangerous visceral fat, 100 percent whole grain foods such as bread, rice, and pasta are essential.

  • When compared to more refined grains, 100 percent whole grains have significantly more fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals. They're a much better option in terms of nutrition.
  • Refined grains have had their vital nutrients removed during the processing process. White bread, white rice, plain pasta, and crackers should be kept to a minimum.
  • Every day, eat a serving or two of 100 percent whole grains. 1 oz or 1/2 cup (125 ml or 25-30 grams) quinoa, brown rice, whole-wheat pasta, whole wheat bread, or millet

Make sure you're getting enough water

Drink plenty of water and other clear fluids throughout the day to keep your body feeling satisfied and hydrated.

  • It is generally recommended that you drink at least 8 glasses of water per day. However, it is recommended that you drink up to 13 glasses per day.
  • It is impossible to overestimate the importance of water in hydrating your body. It helps to keep your body temperature and blood pressure in check.
  • Furthermore, staying hydrated aids in appetite control. Additionally, drinking a glass of water before a meal can help you cut down on your overall intake and aid in weight loss.

To Lose Belly Fat, Cut Out Unhealthy Foods from Your Diet

It's best to stay away from sugar and refined white flour. According to studies, sugary beverages, sweets, and foods made with refined white flour are among the leading causes of visceral fat. Limit or eliminate these foods from your diet to help you lose belly fat.

  • In addition to candy, desserts, and pastries, sweetened beverages such as sodas, fruit juices, and sports drinks can increase visceral fat. Additionally, foods made with white flour or highly processed carbohydrates contribute to weight gain. Crackers, white bread, plain pasta, and white rice are all items to keep an eye out for.
  • If you're craving sugary sweets, try substituting a more nutritious snack or treat. Try low-fat Greek yogurt or fruit as an example.

Eliminate alcoholic beverages from your diet.

Increased alcohol consumption has been linked to an increase in visceral fat in numerous studies. To help reduce belly fat, limit or eliminate alcoholic beverages

  • Many alcoholic beverages are also mixed with sugary, sweetened drinks. Sugar and alcohol together increase your risk of developing visceral fat.
  • In general, women should not consume more than one glass of alcohol per day, while men should consume no more than two glasses per day.

Limit your intake of high-fat foods.

You should limit or avoid certain types of fat that can increase belly fat and the chronic conditions associated with it, in addition to choosing sources of healthy fats to include in your diet.

  • Trans-fats should be avoided at all costs. These fats are man-made and can lead to artery hardening, an increase in LDL (bad cholesterol), and a decrease in HDL (good cholesterol) (the good cholesterol). All products containing partially hydrogenated or hydrogenated oils should be avoided. Fried foods, processed foods, and processed meats all contain these.
  • Saturated fats should be consumed in moderation. There has been a lot of debate about whether or not saturated fats are bad for you. If you're trying to lose weight and body fat, limit these types of fats because they're higher in calories. They're found in butter, full-fat cheese, red meat, and lard, among other animal products.
  • Limit fatty cuts of meat, fast foods, fried foods, and processed meats, as these are the foods that contain the most unhealthy fats.

Increasing Physical Activity and Exercise

This week, do interval workouts 2-3 times.

Interval workouts with a higher intensity have become increasingly popular. They are known to burn a lot of calories, but they also burn a lot of body fat when compared to traditional cardio.

  • People who did three out of five cardio sessions per week with intervals burned more belly fat, according to a University of Virginia study, even though they burned the same number of calories during the workout.
  • Interval programs are available on most gym machines. Interval training can be done on treadmills, stationary bikes, or elliptical machines.
  • Alternate between short bursts of very high-intensity exercises and longer bouts of more moderate-intensity exercises to create your own high-intensity interval program. You could, for example, alternate between the two.

5 days a week, commit to at least 30 minutes of cardio.

In addition to interval training, studies have shown that doing at least 30 minutes of cardio exercises each week is equally important for reducing belly fat.

  • Some health professionals even suggested doing up to 60 minutes of aerobic activities per day to specifically reduce visceral or belly fat.
  • Walking, biking, swimming, hiking, running, or using an elliptical or rowing machine are all excellent ways to exercise.
  • Attempt to complete these tasks at a moderate pace. It's usually described as when it's possible, but difficult, to maintain a conversation while doing the activity.

Increase your daily physical activity.

Lifestyle activities are an excellent way to incorporate more exercise into your daily routine. It's been proven that being more active throughout the day has similar health benefits to doing 150 minutes of planned cardio each week.

  • Sedentary activities, such as watching TV, taking a break at work, or commuting, can be incorporated into your day. Consider times when you have the ability to move or walk further.
  • Do sit-ups, push-ups, and planks during commercial breaks, for example. While stuck in traffic, stretch and take a walk around the office during your break.
  • Consider purchasing a pedometer or installing a step counter app on your smartphone. These will help you keep track of how active you are throughout the day and will show you how much you've increased your level of activity.

This week, do strength training exercises 1-3 times.

Weightlifting increases lean muscle mass, which can help boost your metabolism and ability to burn calories even when you're not exercising.
  • Resistance training also improves bone density and lowers the risk of diseases like osteoporosis.
  • Push-ups, planks, squats, and lunges are examples of body weight exercises. These exercises are great for toning, but they also raise your heart rate.
  • Learn how to use free weights and weight machines to lift weights. Start with chest presses, rows, pec flays, overhead presses, front and side arm raises, lunges and squats or the leg press machine, calf raises, and finally biceps/triceps. The tricep overhead press, tricep pull downs on a cable pull, and tricep kickbacks are all tricep exercises.
  • If you've never worked out with weights before, you might want to consider hiring a personal trainer. They'll be able to show you how to lift weights and put you on a weight-lifting program that's right for you.
