Simple Exercises to Reduce Belly Fat

An expanding waistline isn’t just a concern because it’s harder to zip up your pants, but because a fat stomach is associated with a number of health issues.  This includes a higher risk for diabetes, heart disease and an increased risk of premature death.

But losing belly fat isn’t easy. While your diet is a huge contributor to obesity, staying active is crucial as well. Luckily, there are a number of exercises to reduce stomach fat that you can do at home.

Cutting calories will give you only a limited success. The healthiest people, those with flat stomachs and glowing complexions, don’t just eat right—they exercise.
