Most of us lead a sedentary lifestyle and to make things worse, we have a corporate job, which means we sit for hours at a stretch and work. Sitting in front of the computer for hours not only ruins your overall health but it also leads to accumulation of fat in the belly region, thighs and lower back. This affects your weight loss goals. And not many people are aware of the fact that belly fat is a direct indicator of heart health. The more belly fat you have, it starts to accumulate in the abdominal region thereby increasing your risk of heart problems.

How to deal with it?

According to Dr Akshat Chadha, Hope and Care clinic, Navi Mumbai, eating right is the most important yet most difficult thing to do to reduce belly fat. However, one of the easy and feasible options that almost every person can do to get rid of belly fat is to move more often. You do not need to work out quite often in the gym, but walking around, running, jogging or taking a stroll in your office might help you to shed extra fat around your stomach. Here are 7 secrets from a gym trainer to lose belly fat.

How to go about it?

One of the simple ways to achieve this trick is to set a timer of 45 minutes to one hour (maximum). So every time your phone rings, get up from your chair and go for a walk. You don’t have to go to a restroom every time you get up from a chair. You can chit chat with your colleague or get some water when you get up. You can even take a stroll (but do not smoke) in your office for five minutes. But remember that it has to be done every hour to lower your chances of storing fat in the abdominal area because your cortisol level starts to fall after an hour. This is what leads to an accumulation of fat in the abdominal region, hips and thighs as you tend to sit for long. Also, read about 5 weight loss yoga poses you can do in office.
