If you feel less than confident about your midriff, here are some proven ways to shed belly fat fast…

The bottom line to losing weight is that you have to create a calorie deficit, eating fewer calories required to support your current body weight.

Meal planning, increasing your protein intake, adding some muscle-building resistance training to your routine, eating well and getting enough sleep are all critical to successful weight loss.

If you are checking all the right weight-loss boxes and still not seeing any results, you may have insufficient insulin levels.

To counter this, try following a high protein diet and eliminating processed carbohydrates.
