Spring season is just the time to show off your curves. If you have some tires on your belly, get rid of them by making a few changes in your diet and lifestyle, says an expert.

Try high intensity cardio workout for losing weight.

“Exercises such as fast run for a shorter duration, sprints, jump squats and push-ups are helpful high intensity exercises,” celebrity fitness expert and nutritionist Neeraj Mehta told IANS.

He also shared that strength or weight training can also help.

“To shape up your abdomen faster you should focus on leg and abdomen workout. Squats and deadlifts are some of the most effective exercises. Along with these, you should also do crunches,” he said.


If you want to cut belly fat, then your diet is going to play a major role to achieve that target.

“When we talk about diet, first thing that comes to our mind is skipping the meals or starvation. But that’s not the answer. Avoid junk food as they have very high sodium content and are high on calories. You should avoid carbonated drinks,” said Mehta.
Include seasonal green vegetables and fruits in your diet instead.

“A high fiber diet is a good option to lose belly fat. Fibers makes you feel fuller thus, you will eat less calories,” he said.


Another recommendation to speed up the weight loss is to add superfoods in your diet.

“Superfoods are known for their high nutritional value and medical benefits. They can also help you in reducing belly fat faster. Whole grains such as oats are high in fiber. Salmon is also good as it is a rich source of protein with no significant fat.

“Fruits such as blueberries can give you anti-ageing effects. Other superfoods such as broccoli, grapefruit, and orange can be added as essential varieties in your daily diet,” he said.


And stay hydrated.


“Water releases the toxins from the body and improves your metabolic rate. You should drink plenty of water. Don’t worry about going to washroom again and again. Your body would adopt the water level in a week or so,” he said.
