Fight your Beer Belly

Drink a Pint Less

Cutting back on beer is one of the obvious ways to limit calorie consumption.  Drink a pint less of chilled beer than you usually do. The more you consume, the less of fat is converted into energy. (Image source:Gettyimages)

Know your Calorie Count

It is very important for you to keep a check on your daily calorie consumption. This way you can make the adjustment considering rough calorie estimates of alcoholic drinks. Drop your calorie number by a few hundreds (if need be) to allow a couple of beers. (Image source:Gettyimages)

Drink Low-calorie Beer

Never keep count of the bottles, but keep track of the calories. One of the ways you can keep that fat off is by consuming light beers, the ones with not more than 100 calories. (Image source:Gettyimages)

Beer 1 – 1 Water Glass

It is an excellent idea to complement a drink with a glass of water. For every beer you consume, drink a glass of water after the drink. Water fills you up and you don’t consume more, but it also aids digestion and metabolism. (Image source:Gettyimages)

Eat Good Fats

You need to consume essential fatty acids (considered as good fats) to maintain the body's metabolic rate. Some good sources of essential fatty acids include nuts, canola oil and fish. (Image source:Gettyimages)


Cardio is an important aspect of any weight loss program as it targets the fat largely found in your abdomen, thighs and buttocks. Running, jumping rope, swimming, aerobics and biking are excellent cardio exercise to burn significant fat around the abdomen. (Image source:Gettyimages)

Lift Weights

Strength-training is one of the ways to boost metabolism and keep that fat off. A study at Tufts University suggests that weight training improves resting metabolic rates significantly. (Image source:Gettyimages)

Walk Up/Down the Stairs

Apart from eating right and exercising, you need to overhaul your lifestyle to keep your metabolism in great shape. Small things like taking the stairs and riding your bike (to work/class) are metabolism-chargers. (Image source:Gettyimages)
