Expert Advice #1 - Don't fall to low fat diet trick
Many health professionals suggest low fat diet for weight loss. Although you consume low fat diet , you will still struggle to lose weight because they tend to replace the fat calories they would have eaten with extra carbohydrates (particularly refined carbohydrates).
A larger quantity of refined carbohydrates in the diet will now trigger higher insulin levels, which will make you crave more carbs as your blood sugar crashes. This becomes a difficult endless cycle of craving refined carbs. This makes weight loss on a low fat diet very difficult.
Consuming a diet containing lower than 20% fat can detrimentally affect your weight loss efforts, your hormonal processes, your training performance, and many other bodily functions.

Expert Advice #3 - Tips that lead to easy way to loose belly fats.
Tips #1 - Healthy diet starts from grocery store.
A healthy diet starts with the choices you make at the grocery store. First, it is a good idea to go to the grocery store on a full stomach, so you don’t make impulse purchases.
Second, plan your balanced meals for the entire week, so that you know exactly what you’re shopping for and you will pick up only the items you need to make those meals.
This way, you eliminate buying all of the junk foods and snacks that you don’t need. If you don’t have them around the house, you won’t eat them! If all you have is healthy foods around the house, then all you will eat are those healthy foods. It’s that simple.
Tips #2 - Shop for unprocessed foods
Focus your shopping on the outer portions of the grocery store where all of the more unprocessed foods are located like fruits, vegetables, lean meats, fish, low fat dairy, etc.
There is no reason to eliminate or limit your consumption of any one food group or macronutrient (protein, carbs, or fat). Restrictive diets will always fail at some point.
All three macronutrients (as a side note, there are actually six categories of nutrients – carbs, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals, and water) serve important functions in our bodies, and when eaten in the right quantities and at the right times, promote a lean healthy body.
