Adopt healthy dietary pattern
Now a day concept of Mediterranean diet is in news. According to meta-analytic study  published in Journal ofAmerican College of Cardiology, Mediterranean diet has beneficial effects in reducing waist circumference and improving cholesterol and sugar levels.

Mediterranean diet pattern consists of

  • High consumption of monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA). Olive oil is well known source for MUFA.
  • Daily consumption of fibre rich foods like fruits, green-leafy vegetables, whole-grain cereals along with low-fat dairy products.
  • Weekly consumption of fish, poultry, nuts and legumes. Fish is rich source of omega-3-fatty acid, which determines the rate of burning of body's fat.
  • Relatively low consumption of red meat due to high content of saturated fat and total protein
  • Moderate consumption of alcohol.

At Endocrine Society's 93rd Annual Meeting in Boston, a new study revealed that a modest reduction in consumption of carbohydrate foods may promote loss of deep belly fat, even with little or no change in weight.

Study conducting principal author Barbara Gower, PhD, a Professor of nutrition sciences at the University of Alabama at Birmingham said, "For individuals willing to go on a weight-loss diet, a modest reduction in carbohydrate containing foods may help them preferentially lose fat, rather than lean tissue."
You can get a variety of food-stuffs in low carbohydrate-food list.

Though you have enormous choices of doing exercises choosing perfect one for you is a little bit difficult task.
