The 7 Common Habits that are worst for Belly Fat

Distracted eating

When eating while preoccupied with anything else, like watching TV or using the computer, it might result in mindless eating and overindulgence in calories. 

Not getting enough protein

A diet lacking in protein can cause muscle loss, which slows down the metabolism and makes it more difficult to shed abdominal fat.

Not drinking enough water

You run the risk of being dehydrated if you don't drink enough water. It is more difficult to keep active and burn calories while dehydrated.

Overconsuming calories from healthy foods

Gaining weight might result from overindulging in meals, even nutritious ones. Portion control is therefore crucial for a healthy weight loss strategy.

Skipping meals

Regularly missing breakfast puts you at risk because it causes your body to produce more hunger hormones, which lead to overeating later in the day.

Not sleeping enough

Lack of sleep can throw off the body's hormonal equilibrium, causing hunger hormones like ghrelin and leptin to become imbalanced.

Drinking too much alcohol

Alcohol severely damages healthy waist sizes. When ingested in significant quantities, it might lead to weight gain because it has a high number of empty calories (7 calories per gram).
