The metabolism of men differs from that of women and the amount of physical work they do is much more than that of a woman; and hence they lose weight quickly.
But then in the present times; automated systems have made life a more relaxed and easy affair and men are becoming prone towards gaining weight, especially belly fat. There is hardly any physical work involved in the current age of automated lifestyle and anybody hardly needs to lift a finger to do any work at all. Here are some diet tips for men to increase their metabolism as well as reduce excess fat.
Alcohol intake and cold beverages: Alcohol plays a major role in increasing the fat content in the human body and if a man is a regular drinker, his chances of gaining more belly fat increases. Beer belly is a popular term used to describe a man who has a big belly gained by the consumption of alcohol and beer.
Reducing the consumption of alcohol will assist in keeping the extra weight and cholesterol level in check. Cold beverages, when consumed regularly can also lead to a high increase in the body weight. Replacing a cold drink with a glass of iced tea will help in keeping the weight in check.
Including fruits and vegetables: The consumption of fruits and vegetables as a part of the regular diet is very important to get a good constitution; and to keep the excess weight away. A portion of fruits and a portion of vegetables should be a part of all the meals and a difference will be visible in the body weight very soon.
Exercise and yoga: Cardio exercises and stomach crunches are one of the most effective exercises to get rid of that stubborn body fat. Cardio exercises will help in increasing the stamina in the body and doing stomach crunches will help in reducing the belly fat. Yoga is the best form of exercise to get the perfect physical and mental health.
Lifestyle changes: A lethargic lifestyle is mainly responsible for the unhealthy and ungainly weight gain in our bodies and making small changes in our lifestyle will help in getting a healthier and leaner body. Taking the stairs instead of the elevator, going to the neighborhood shopping centre by walk instead of taking the car, eating home cooked food instead of outside, having regular and balanced meals, playing with your pet or the kids in the park will definitely make a positive change in your life.
