One of the most frequently made resolutions is to get rid of body fat. However, it is not always a simple task because there are all kinds of challenges that make the process difficult for you. From low physical activity or having a slow metabolism to genetic factors: all cause a high percentage of excess weight and obesity.

Have you finally decided to start a diet but are already desperate because you are not getting the desired results? Don’t worry! With the right tricks, you can reach your goal without so many complications.

In this article, we’ll give you some tips to eliminate body fat and get your ideal body.

Eat Apples

There are many delicious breakfast recipes with which you can enjoy apples and other fruits.

Some recent studies show that apples have properties that help with weight loss. Thus, surprising results have been seen in people with high percentages of obesity.

Apples help you get rid of body fat because they are high in fiber, carotenoids and polyphenols. Fiber facilitates intestinal movement and makes you feel satisfied longer, which reduces snacking between meals and overall caloric intake.

Therefore, apples should not be lacking in your diet. We recommend that you include this fruit in your diet at least once a day. It can be as a mid-morning snack accompanied by some protein (like yogurt or cheese) or in your morning smoothie.

Eliminate Sugar from Your Diet

To have a balanced diet, you have to just consume natural sugars like those found in fruits. However, we usually consume processed sugars. This is considered one of the major causes of obesity, excess weight and degenerative diseases, such as diabetes, as stated in a 2016 study.

If you want to take care of your health and, at the same time, get rid of body fat, you will have to say goodbye to processed sugars. It will be difficult at first, but we recommend that you try to replace them with natural options.

  • Ideally, you should take everything that contains any type of processed sugar in its ingredients out of your kitchen. This includes jams, flavorings, breads, cookies, dressings, etc.
  • In turn, learn to play with the flavors of natural sweeteners, such as fruits, honey, and stevia.

Drink Green Tea

Green tea is one of the most commonly used diuretic drinks for weight loss. Tea contains a large amount of antioxidants, called catechins. It also has caffeine in its composition, which is positively related to weight loss, as stated in a study published in the journal Molecules.

  • The best way to make the most of green tea’s diuretic components is to drink it on an empty stomach. You can add lemon juice to increase its properties.
  • We recommend you add it to your regular daily diet. You can create interesting flavored drinks using it along with fruits and some spices.

Drink a Lot of Water

Without a doubt, drinking water is one of the most common recommendations for losing weight. However, we usually ignore it, drinking less than 8 glasses per day.

Water promotes intestinal movement, making it ideal for people suffering from constipation. It also contributes to the onset of satiety, which reduces the risk of snacking between meals.

  • To get rid of body fat, try to drink 1 glass of still water before each meal. This will help you feel full more quickly.  
  • Try to keep the water completely still and plain. If this doesn’t work for you, create teas with fruits but avoid blending them. If you do, you could lose part of the fiber from the fruit but keep the sugars.

Include Eggs in Your Diet

Eggs have one of the highest amounts of proteins of any food that you can find and only have 5 grams of total fat. In addition, they don’t have bad cholesterol (LDL), so you can eat them without any worries.

You can cook them whole or only consume the egg whites, depending on how strict your diet is. For many years, it was thought to be a harmful food, but it can help you get rid of body fat by providing good fats.

Do exercise

To get rid of body fat, you must burn more calories than you consume. To do this, you have to combine physical activity with your diet. The point is that this activity should become a habit of your daily routine.

  • The most recommendable thing is to exercise during the mornings, because it is when you have more energy.
  • If you had a very substantial dinner, exercising on an empty stomach will help you burn excess calories.

We recommend you to follow these tips and you’ll see how soon you will reach your ideal weight. Remember that you must be constant and not give up trying.
