Nutrition Is Also Important For Losing Belly Fat
I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't remind you that your nutrition also plays a key role in your overall health and ability to lower your body fat percentage. I'm not a fan of extreme and restrictive diets, but I do recommend implementing nutritional changes such as drinking more water and fewer sugary drinks, cutting out processed foods, and eating more whole foods.
A general recommendation for fat loss is that 50 percent of your daily caloric intake should come from carbohydrates, 25 percent should come from protein, and 25 percent should come from fats, Nikki Jupe, MS, RD, LD, CSSD, senior sports dietitian at the University of Oregon told POPSUGAR in a previous interview. Because this number can vary person to person, consider speaking to a registered dietitian who can create an individualized plan based on your goals and needs.
