- Lemon Water
Depending on your height and weight, the average person should be drinking eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day in order to stay hydrated. By adding lemon to every glass of water you drink a day, you can help to reduce your belly fat. How? By helping to aid your liver in detoxifying foods and beverages that come through your body, lemon acts as the perfect cleansing tool. Simply squeeze a slice of fresh lemon into your water and you will hopefully start to not only notice your belly fat disappearing, but you will notice that you feel better overall as well.
Fermented foods like yogurt are filled with antibodies that help aid your immune system and help keep your digestive system on track. By eating a yogurt a day you can help cut down on things like bloating, constipation, and any sort of abdominal swelling.
