Fat is an important component of the human body, but as they say, too much of anything is usually bad. One of the most annoying and probably hardest body fat to get rid of is belly fat. Apart from being unable to flaunt a sexy beach body, there are several other reasons to hate body fat, for example; high risk of getting hypertension and heart disease.

There are various ways to get rid of belly fat but the most effective is exercising paired with a healthy diet. Once you decide on to embark on the journey of weight loss, regardless of your target body part, you must be ready to put in the work. You also need to choose the right set of exercises that will help you achieve your goal.

Losing belly fat is undoubtedly awesome, but losing fat in only one place is not a great choice for your long term health and fitness goals. That is why the exercises listed below focus on multiple muscle groups in order to get your whole body in form.

Take a look at the top twelve exercises that have helped me in the past.

Everyone will tell you that these exercises work, and yes, they do. But what most people won’t tell you is that like any other goal, losing weight takes commitment, discipline and patience.

You have to do these workouts once or twice a day, depending on what is comfortable for you, for 30 days in order to observe some change. The other thing you need to do is watch what you eat. You’d be doing nothing at all if you worked out twice a day but ate two meals packed with fats and oils.

You must adopt a healthy meal plan that is fatty and fried food free. Eliminating or cutting down on foods with so much processed sugar is also another way to get rid of belly fat fast.
