Having a little belly fat is normal for most men and women. It’s definitely not something that should be a cause of concern. 

However, excess visceral fat (belly fat) is incredibly harmful and could make you more prone to chronic conditions like type 2 diabetes and heart diseases. 

Apart from the health benefits of having a flatter belly, for many people, a flat belly can be aesthetically pleasing???? – especially in the warmer weather when we can finally bring out our swimsuits and short dresses.

In the pursuit to look like cover girls and our favorite influencers, we might fall into the trap of believing some common myths.

The following are some of these myths and we’re here to debunk them.

  • Eating Fatty Foods Will Make You Gain Fat

Fat is an important part of our diet. They give your body energy and give you the “full” feeling that comes after eating a good meal.

To avoid gaining weight, many people choose to cut out fatty foods from their diet when in fact, incorporating healthy fats in your diet will help you lose weight.

In addition to helping you lose weight, healthy fats like avocado and olive oil will improve your hair health, promote glowing skin and also help your body fight cardiovascular skin.

Don’t be afraid of having fatty foods every now and then, especially if it’s a healthy meal.

  • Abs Workouts Will Give You Abs

As most physical trainers will tell you, spot training is near impossible. Although crunches will help you see your abs faster, a whole body workout and a healthy diet are what you need to lose the extra weight.

  • A Juice Cleanse Will Help You Get A Flat Belly Quickly

From celebrities to influencers, a lot of public personalities swear by a juice cleanse – especially for quick weight loss benefits.

A juice cleanse is simply having your fruits and vegetables in liquid form and replacing all solid meals with this juice.

If you’re looking to lose weight for a big event, then a seven-day juice cleanse might work for you. A lot of people report losing 2 to 3 pounds of weight using this technique.

However, it should be noted that this is mostly water weight and not actual fat. A juice cleanse done long-term is also extremely unhealthy because your body will not benefit from other nutrients provided by other foods. 

To maintain your weight or achieve your desired weight goal, you need to choose a healthy, long-term, and practical diet.
