It’s true…belly fat looks bad.

But having too much of it also leads to medical issues like heart disease and diabetes.

Thus, it’s easy to see that losing belly fat will help you become healthy and live longer! (with my Mother dying a very preventable death in my teens, this is a BIG DEAL for me).

You can measure your own belly fat at home with a measuring tape.

If a person has:

  • Over 40 inches (102 cm) for men
  • Over 35 inches (88 cm) for women

…then they are considered to have abdominal obesity.

If this is you (or you’re getting too close for comfort), I’m here to help.

There are proven strategies that specifically target belly fat, more so than other areas of the body.

Here are 6 ways to dump belly fat based on science:

6 Easy Ways To Lose Belly Fat

1) Stay Away From Sugary Drinks

You never want to drink your calories.

And you REALLY never want to drink your calories from sugar!

Added sugar is very unhealthy.

Studies have shown it’s hurtful effect on your health.

Sugar is part glucose and part fructose, and your liver cannot break down fructose in small amounts.

When you eat a lot of added sugar, your liver get overwhelmed with fructose, and has no choice but to turn it into fat. (4).

Many studies have proven that excess fructose leads to an increase in belly and liver fat.

When this happens, insulin resistance begins, along with other metabolic issues.

Liquid sugar is the worst. Because your brain doesn’t ‘register’ the calories you drink the way it does the calories you eat, sugary beverages, causes you to eat more total calories.

Let’s decide together to minimize sugar in your diet, and consider eliminating sugary drinks altogether. This includes sodas, fruit juices, high-sugar sports drinks, and heavily sweetened iced tea.

6 Simple Ways To Lose Belly Fat

2) Eat More Protein

When it comes to losing belly fat, protein is king.

Protein reduces cravings by 60%, boosts metabolism by 80–100 calories per day and helps you eat fewer calories per day (up to 400+).

If losing weight is your goal, protein is your biggest weapon in the fight.

It helps you lose weight, but also help prevent gaining weight back.

One study showed that people who ate protein of higher amounts and quality had much less belly fat.

The goal for protein consumption is 25 – 30% of calories eaten.

So make an effort to eat more high-protein foods such as eggs, fish, seafood, nuts, meat and dairy products.

If you have a hard time getting enough protein, a protein supplement like whey protein is a healthy way to give your protein a boost.

If you’re a vegetarian or vegan, this article can help you get more protein.

6 Simple Ways To Lose Belly Fat

3) Cut The Carbs

Carb cutting is a very effective way to lose fat.

Numerous studies have shown when people cut carbs, their appetite decreases and they lose weight.

Low-carb diets also lead to quick reductions in water weight, which shows results quickly (1 to 2 days).

Studies also compare low-carb and low-fat diets, showing that low-carb diets target belly fat.

Avoid refined carbs (sugar, candy, white bread, etc).

6 Simple Ways To Lose Belly Fat

4) Eat More Fiber

Dietary fiber is mostly indigestible, and there are different types of fiber to consider.

It seems that viscous fibers that have an effect on your weight.

These are fibers that bind water and form a thick gel that “sits” in the gut.

This gel can slow the movement of food through your digestive system, result in prolonged feeling of fullness and reduced appetite.

One 4 month study study found that adding 14 grams of fiber per day was linked to a 10% decrease in calorie intake and weight loss of more than 4 pounds.

This suggests that soluble fiber may be particularly effective at dropping belly fat.

More daily fiber can be found in plant foods like vegetables and fruit, as well as some cereals (read those labels).

Try taking a fiber supplement like glucomannan. This viscous dietary fiber has been shown to cause weight loss in several studies.

5) Exercise

You knew this one was coming…

Exercise is among the best things you can do if you want to live a long, healthy life.

Understand this:  I’m not talking about abdominal exercises here. Losing fat in one spot of the body due to exercise is impossible, and doing crunches ’til you drop will not make you lose belly fat.

In one study, 6 weeks of training just the abdominal muscles had basically no effect on waist circumference.

Other types of exercise, however, can be very effective.

Aerobic exercise (like walking, running, swimming, etc) have resulted in good belly fat loss in numerous studies.

Exercise is also important after you lose the weight, and has shown to aid in keeping belly fat off during weight maintenance.

Exercise also leads to reduced inflammation and lower blood sugar levels too.

6 Simple Ways To Lose Belly Fat

6) Track What You Eat

We all know that what you eat is important.

Yet most people have no clue what they are really eating.

For someone who wants to better their diet, tracking food intake is essential.

Keeping a food diary can help you realize where you could make changes.

Outlining your current eating habits can help you apply the tips discussed above.

Check out this calorie calculator and a list of free online tools and apps to track what you are eating.

Once you start doing this, you’ll know exactly where to make adjustments in order to get closer to your goals.

OTG is awesome. After not really working out or eating right for the last decade, Fil helped me get the train back on the tracks. He is extremely knowledgeable and will be able to help you lay out a plan based off of your individual fitness goals. All of the trainers here are awesome and will push you to be a little bit better each day. They give you all of the guidance and support that you need in the gym and in the kitchen to achieve your goals. Everyone here is super friendly and it is a welcoming environment even for those who have never been in a gym before. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a gym

I began coming to OTG in Jan 22. I’ve not been to a gym before but I am thankful I was referred there by my nutritionist. The trainers are knowledgeable about fitness. They are very welcoming and encouraging to every person who walks through their doors.Each time I go to the gym, I see OTG on the walls. I know the staff work with every individual to be “Their Greatest!.”I’m thankful for OTG😀

I hadn't worked out, other than walking some, in over a year because of some injuries and discouragement. I found this place on my way to research another gym. They are organized, consistent and offer a good range of hours for personal training. The trainers are not only encouraging. I love the way they explain the technique for the exercises. They tell me how to position myself and the equipment but also help me get a picture of what my muscles should be doing. I'm so glad that I stumbled across OTG. They have been exactly what I needed at this point in my health journey.

I was a person that is very intimidated by public gyms, had some experience with working out but wanted to perfect it more and grow more confidence. Let me tell you this is hands down best gym i’ve been to, with provided training and trainers are always there to help i wouldn’t wanna go anywhere else. i work odd hours and they accommodate me and still manage to work around my schedule rather than theirs and that shows a lot! best decision i’ve made! don’t look any further give them a shot it’s beyond worth it.

The experience was amazing. As a prior trainer myself, seeing the professionalism and personal connections the trainers and owner (Fil) made with me and just others I saw in there was very refreshing. They take great care of you. There main priority is to get you where you want to be, and that’s that. They aren’t pushy or have any attitudes and it is awesome coming from an industry like this! Great environment!

OTG is simple and straight to the point . It’s not as focused on vanity and image as it is focused on getting results and making a positive influence on your life. The people who work out there are very kind and supportive. There’s no judgement there. I love that it’s open 24/7.

This place is more than a gym. It's your 2nd (or more) chance at a healthier and more active life! The owner is amazing and will personally get you started on your journey and personalize it to you no matter where you are starting from. He will also help you with your nutrition, in easy to follow ways. Having only 1-3 people with a trainer at a time also allows them to focus on you individually to help you with your form and improve your abilities. I have used multiple and have been very happy with everyone. I honestly looked up this place over a year before I reached out. There was always going to be a better time....maybe I'd lose a little weight and get in better shape before I started so I wouldnt be embarrassed, maybe I'd wait until I felt better financially prepared, but those times never came and I finally just decided it was now or never. So getting healthy was delayed over a year....don't wait, just start. You won't regret it. I truly wish I would have put this investment in myself a long time ago.

I have been a trainee for 10 months now and it has truly shaped how I feel about fitness.What I appreciate is the healthy approach to working out and balancing life and things like diet. All the people there are genuinely trying to help and care about your success and goals.Shout out to Bobby and Kevin as those men push me to do things I never thought I could.Highly recommend for every stage of your fitness journey.

The cleanest, most well-managed gym I've ever been a member of. I used to have a membership with 24 Hour Fitness at their Ultra Sport location, but I was always waiting for equipment, no matter what time it was. I've never been happier with my workout experience than since joining this gym. I've never had to wait to use any of the equipment, the machines are modern and well-organized, and the bathrooms/locker rooms are the cleanest I've seen at any gym. I moved further away but still prefer to make the 20+ minute commute rather than visit any of their other locations.

This is an awesome fitness center with great trainers. I have been going her for 2 months and I love it. I have learned how to be discipline and consistent. They educate you and frequently check in to make sure everything is going well. Some of the best things about the center is the cleanliness, small crowd, and exercise equipment. They offer group and private sessions for a reasonable price.

OTG is a great place to work out. Great space with AC (recently expanded), variety of equipment, one on one training and small group training, open 24 hours, awesome trainers that are motivating, knowledgeable about fitness and nutrition, and will help you with your specific needs. Highly recommend them!

If you want a personalized fitness and training experience that helps you reach your weight loss/exercise goals, then look no further than OTG. Their trainers are attentive to your needs and encourage you/push you/ challenge you to get in shape and reach your fitness potential. If you are married or have friends that you want to work out with, they offer group training for no more than three individuals per session. My husband and I have had the opportunity to train together and it helps us push one another. You have 24-hr access to the gym, but they require each client to train at least once per week. It’s a mom and pop type place, so they will stay on you to ensure that you keep with your exercise routine. All in all, becoming an OTG client was one of the best decisions my husband and I have made recently.

Love this gym so much!!!!! Kevin is literally the best trainer I have had. He’s very outgoing and makes sure you are doing the right technique during workout so you don’t get injured! Very good at communicating, motivating, and very very professional!! Definitely recommend this gym. It’s more private and not as crowded due to scheduling your training days. Although if you do not need a trainer the gym is open 24 hours which I LOVE! Not just Kevin but every single trainer in there are very nice and outgoing as well as motivational. Fillipe is super professional and always welcomes his clients in. If you are looking for a gym where you want to feel comfortable this is the place to go!!!!!!!!

I started training back in July and after one month saw changes in my energy level, strength, and weight. I really enjoyed my sessions with both Kevin and Bobby. I was kind of nervous about starting and as soon as I walked through the door Kevin was always happy and welcomed me with a smile on his face. He taught me a lot of good workouts that I could do at home easily. Eventually I started working out more in the evening due to my work schedule and that’s how I started training with Bobby. If you want someone that really challenges you, go to Bobby! He was really good with teaching the correct form with weight lifting which helped me feel more confident using weights at my gym at home. If you have specific goals you want to achieve, Bobby is going to help you get there.

I don't write too many reviews but I really want to give recognition to Bobby. He is a phenomenal trainer that really knows his craft. He is able to work with each person on a personal level and he truly does bring out the best in you. Whether your doing a group session or individual session, he has the ability to see what workouts and exercises would benefit you the most. Bobby definitely knows how to push you too. At the same time, he's constantly motivating and encouraging you! No matter what your reason is for attending OTG is whether it be getting in shape, losing weight, or getting stronger, I can guarantee you that Bobby can help you achieve your goals!

Before signing up with OTG, I was feeling really defeated. I felt like I had tried everything to lose weight but just kept gaining. Fillipe took the time to sit down and analyze my eating habits and taught me how to balance my macros more efficiently. And Christian has been a great trainer! He has a great, positive attitude and pushes you to do your best. I'm finally losing weight sustainably and feeling better about myself. If you're struggling, I highly recommend giving them a try!

To anyone who is seeking a transformation, and just needs the right direction to see a physical change in their image. HANDS DOWN - OTG FITNESS is the place to do it. Fillipe and his team are a phenomenal group. They are patient, highly professional, friendly and really provide a sense of superior customer service. This team cares about your physical health and wants to help you ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS. I'm very satisfied with the change that I've reached so far and look forward to the future. I owe it to my trainer, "Bobby". Don't spend endless hours or spend your time in gyms that do not care about you. Trust me, OTG cares...all you have to do is visit their gym and experience the physical change like I did. OTG FITNESS is the best!!!

From day 1, my experience at OTG has been 5 star! Felipe provided clear guidance on how the gym worked, scheduling, billing, etc. I worked with PT Nikki who was absolutely amazing and inspiring as she worked nearly right to her pregnancy due date (talk about a Super woman!). Kevin then started training with me and he is fantastic as well! The trainers are well informed, encouraging and will give you the push to see the results you want! On top of the experience, the quality of service for the price is a great deal. You get training plus 24 hour access to the spacious and clean gym. I’m so impressed by OTG, for all of my primary care patients who are ready to take their fitness/wellness to the next level I recommend they consider OTG... Doctor’s Odors! Lol

I looked at getting a trainer for a few months and none of them really were a good fit. OTG is hands down the best place. Not only did they take the time to help make a workout plan that was specific to me they also helped out with food plans as well, to help me put on the weight I wanted to! When you walk in everybody is supper nice and chill, it definitely makes you feel at ease.

Before starting working out with Felipe at OTG, I was feeling very tired all the time. No energy.I was not eating and drinking healthy. It was impossible for me to discipline myself to a healthy lifestyle. I was always coming with excuses like being very busy at work and having not enough time for myself.It is been more than 1 year that me and my husband go to OTG. I lost 25 pounds. I feel more energetic, optimistic for life. I no longer feel tired or blown all the time. I feel healthy and more optimistic for life.We thank everyday the person who made us sign at OTF fitness. That day literally changed our life for good. I see myself doing this for rest of my life.Thank you Felipe and all the staff for your hard work and making us feel so welcome every time we come in.

As an OTG Fitness client I have been very pleased with my experience. My trainer is really great and started out getting to know where I was with my strength and even asked what I was looking to gain from my experience. My trainer takes time to not just train me but explains why we do each exercise which is very important to me, making exercise fun while seeing results. As a person who has little knowledge of working out or even know proper techniques when lifting weights I appreciate when I my trainer is knowledgeable and can explain the right way of doing things so I will not injure myself.The owner and also trainer gets to know each person who walks through the door and learn who they would work well with from his amazing team. Developing that connection goes along way and speaks volumes of a company.Since day one, it has been such a great experience. I have made huge progress and know I made the right decision by joining OTG Fitness!

I have been training with OTG for more than six months, and the experience has improved my life greatly. I drive more than 30 minutes from East Downtown Houston twice a week just to work out at this facility -- the trainers are that legit. And while I'm capable of exercising on my own, I'm the type of person who does better when pushed by a professional who knows what they're doing and provides that perfect balance of expectation and support. Are you looking to get in shape and want to work with excellent trainers? Look no further than OTG Fitness.

I love their personal touch to OTG. The fact that it was a smaller gym allows for the trainers there to have more one on one time with you and help you with your form. I also greatly appreciated working with a knowledgeable trainer such as Fillipe! It’s always nice to have a coach that understands the human body and how best to give you the results you are looking for! Above all, the biggest quality that stood out to me was that the trainers there worked at your pace and built you up they didn’t try to kill you in the beginning. So overall I definitely recommend coming here!

My husband I started working out at OTG in March. The trainers are great and teach things that can translate outside of the gym. The equipment is in great shape and the way it is set up has provided us almost private workouts. The owner is very nice, reasonable and respectful of all of his clients. This is my first experience with a trainer and small gym and I don’t ever see me going back to a large, faceless warehouse gym again!

This is by far one of the best personal training gyms I’ve trained in. Customer service is amazing. The trainers talk to you about your goals and craft a plan tailored to you to aid in the process of achieving them. The gym is clean, has friendly people, and has tons of functional equipment.

Short answer: come here. Give this gym and it's trainers a chance. You absolutely will NOT regret it!I could speak volumes about how compassionate, thoughtful, and supportive the crew is here. Aside from this, they have also cultivated a positive environment within the gym. Excellent equipment, clean facilities, not to mention helpful videos with your membership to teach you what you need, no matter what your goals might be. Thank you Felipe, Leigh Ann, and Bobby to all of the knowledge and know how that you provide!!!

This gym was great! Especially during everything going on with the the virus, they were one of the only gyms opened in my area prior to reopening. Filipe was very knowledgeable on nutritional information and helping me reach my macro goals. He was also very quick to assist me with any questions about workouts or diet. The 24HR accessibility was a great perk, all the equipment is new, and since the clientele was limited to just guests and their personal trainers, I normally felt like I just had the gym all to myself. Plenty of space and friendly people overall made for a great atmosphere to get my workout on. Unfortunately I couldn’t sustain the cost longterm on my budget, but I do recommend this gym to everyone! You will be pleased!

This is the best personal training experience I have ever had by far. Filipe is the owner and takes a personal interest in my physical training, nutrition and overall health. His facility is fully equipped, clean and just right for the personal training experience. I give OTG my highest recommendation!!

I’ve only been coming here for a week but from the jump I really liked the atmosphere at the gym, the gym is clean, the people are all knowledgeable, kind and understanding of what’s going on with your body. The workouts are a lot of fun. Just within the first week I feel stronger, I’m sleeping better, also the facility being 24 hr access is my favorite part of this gym. I can come in and get a work out even if I’m not working 1 on 1 with someone. Thank you for what y’all do ??

Very nice facility! I don’t like working out with a lot of people around and this place made me feel very at-home and comfortable. It was an intimate setting and it allowed me all of the equipment I needed. The owner is super friendly and accommodating, and the fact that it’s open 24 hours is definitely a plus!

I love the personalized training and accountability I get here! I no longer push off my workouts and I feel so much better having a structured training routine. I also love that I don’t have to think after a long day, and can just show up and know my body will get what it needs. Leigh Ann is awesome and knows how to push me the right amount. She always brightens my day and not only trains me, but listens and cares about what else is going on in my life. I highly recommend committing to a program here so your health goals don’t continue to get pushed off!

I started coming here in Mid-October and I have never been as consistent with my workouts as I am now. Fillipe is incredibly encouraging and cares for all his clients. Leigh Ann is a wonderful trainer and has really tailored my workouts to my needs and goals. I feel so welcome here and there are truly people of all ages, backgrounds, and fitness levels. I am way more confident in the gym now and am able to make my own workouts as well as well as focus on my nutrition without the stress of a diet. 10/10 would recommend! :D

I was looking for a gym with a trainer to not only shape my body but my mind as well. The trainers here offer nutritional and motivational support as well as a detailed workout plan to fit your own needs. The owner is extremely welcoming and wants only the best for his clients. I have never been to a gym so focused on their clients before, from the personalized workouts, Saturday group workouts, nutritional tips and accountability. OTG Fitness has it all! It’s because of my trainer Leigh Ann and the other trainers at OTG that I am now physically and mentally healthier than I’ve ever been?? I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend checking out OTG. They aren’t just a regular gym, they tailor everything to fit your needs and ensure that you are getting the most out of each workout!!

Probably the best decision I’ve made, as this is the most consistent I’ve been with my workouts in years. When I first started, Leigh Ann asked what I would like to focus on and personalized my workouts based on my goals. And although I’ve only been going twice a week, I’ve already seen significant results! Great system and great people! Look forward to this company’s growth and success! ??

Great fitness shop if you're trying to get started with exercise or, if like me, you needed a tune-up to get your workouts back in proper form. They listen to what you want to accomplish and build a program to help you get moving in that direction. Owner is always quick to respond to any questions and trainers will work with you on schedule and ideas.

When I started my journey with OTG, self confidence was at an all time low. Fil and Lucas have helped me love me again. I started this journey as a way to loose weight and nothing else. And what I've found on this journey so far is that this is a lifestyle that I'll likely continue long term. OTG has been a saving grace for me mentally, physically and emotionally. I'm comfortable being myself with the trainers and am able to be open and trust their guidance unequivocally. This is the best investment I've made in myself. EVER!

Have been going to this gym for several months now. I love that it's not as big or packed as many gyms in the area, but still has a wide variety of equipment and tools. The owner Fillipe is very passionate about his business, and has helped me form and focus a well structured regiment that addresses all of my fitness goals. I definitely would recommend checking this place out if you're looking for something different than the other big business gyms that still provides consistent quality environment and training.

If you’re the type of person who finds it hard to focus in big gyms like planet fitness or 24 hour fitness, OTG Fitness is the place for you. Rarely will you find that it is too crowded for you to use the equipment that you need for the day and the environment is very welcoming and lets you get locked in to get the best workout possible. Not only is it great for the lack of crowdedness, but the equipment is fantastic and the staff is the exact same. The trainers at OTG are excellent, and know tons about what they’re doing and how to accommodate to almost anyone’s schedule and needs. If you have any sort of fitness goals, and you are willing to commit 100% with your dieting and workout schedule, they can help you quickly achieve your goals. OTG is without a doubt one of the best gyms in the area and I constantly find myself recommending it to anyone who asks what new gym they should join.

I began personal training at OTG 8 weeks ago. Working out in a gym was never something I enjoyed or looked forward to. On top of that, I dreaded having a personal trainer even more because of how insecure I felt about my body. My husband and I decided to give personal training a try and OTG changed my perspective on what a gym can be and should be. The trainers are down to earth, sincerely care about you, and see something in you that you may not see in yourself. In week 8, I can honestly say that I look forward to working out and crushing it. The end of every workout feels like a victory. The workouts are intense but only 30 minutes long so they fit into my busy schedule. You don't only get a workout but Fillipe provides personal nutrition counseling. I have lost one pound a week for the past 8 weeks with 2 - 30 minute sessions /week and tweaking what I eat. My pants aren't tight anymore. I feel more confident and feel stronger. Best of all, I feel closer to my husband because we can bond over our workouts. We just renewed for another 8 weeks! Thank you OTG!

I’ve been going to OTG for about 8 months now, and love it. The trainers have been great in helping me reach my goals. I’ve made so much more progress here vs a traditional gym. The one on one attention I get has really helped me with my form, as I have a back injury. I also truly understand how to track my macros! Thanks Filipe and your team for all of your help and attention.

Comparing or categorizing OTG Fitness with other private fitness facilities is wholly unfair to OTG. This is because OTG, in my opinion, is unlike other facilities. I feel most want to bring you in and try and retain you long term to bolster revenue without real regard for you and your long term goals. OTG is the exact opposite of that because their goal is to equip you with the knowledge and the tools to be successful once you leave OTG. I left OTG, not only with less weight on me, but with so much information and so many workout routines that I don't see how I can't be successful in hitting my long term goals. Fantastic experience and investment in myself at OTG!

OTG has a super positive vibe, where everyone feels welcomed regardless of ability or personal goal. Felipe is hands on with every client to make sure they are supported and reaching their goals. His personal passion is coaching people who are not naturally athletic or struggling with weight loss to believe in themselves and accomplish things they did not think possible. Great place to workout independently or in a group, highly recommend OTG especially if your unsure or new to fitness lifestyle coaching.

I am an Olympic lifter and was looking for a gym that is close to my home. I’m so glad I found this place that has everything I need. The owner Fil was so energetic, genuine, and helpful. I needed a female barbell and he purchased it right away for me which was amazing. The sound system connected to Alexa is awesome. Additional amenities include air conditioning, showers, microwave and filtered water . These are all rare amenities you don’t see in gyms from this area. Go ahead and give it a try, you will not regret it!!!

as someone who does not have much experience with a “real gym” OTG certainly set the bar high. the atmosphere is full of positivity and encouragement, while the actual space is a perfect size for those who need training! the staff is committed to helping anyone with questions varying diet, different techniques, and/or lifestyle changes. the equipment is unique and versatile for those who are experienced, yet easy enough to learn for beginners! i’ve visited this gym twice and both times there were improvements being made around the gym so that their clients have the best experience possible, this goes to show that there is an insatiable desire to be the greatest for those who choose to find it within themselves!

Hey everyone my names preston. I’ve been working with Fillipe for about two years now and it’s been a crazy journey. I watched Fillipe build this gym and watch his dream come true. This gym is by far better than any other place I’ve been to. The equipment is better than 24, anytime, and any other gym. It’s nice sized yet plenty of room for everything. There’s a variety of different workouts available. OTG fitness makes me feel very comfortable to workout with others and it’s very inviting and welcoming. Everyone always has a smile on there face and an amazing story to tell. This man and his team have really changed the game of personal training. If you haven’t checked the place out, walk ins are welcome so I strongly suggest you take a look. Awesome place to workout and even hangout. Keep up the good work OTG!

He really listens to your needs and will tell you what works and does not. This place is 24hr, has a shower, bathroom, water, everything. Not your typical "bro gym." Highly recommend checking it out!
