Since every individual is unique, this means the way their body functions is going to be unique as well. What are the proper workouts for you to exercise your belly? According to POPSUGAR, Nikki Jupe, a senior sports dietician at the University of Oregon, suggests 50% of your daily caloric intake come from carbohydrates, 25% proteins, and the other 25% should come from fats.

When you incorporate enough cardio and strength training along with your diet, you’re definitely on the right foot. The keynote is to remain consistent. After a long day of work, the last thing we want is to get sweaty and tired again, but a little encouragement can go a long way. Here are some key tips in maintaining your goal:
- If I do this now, I won’t feel guilty later. If you feel any bit of remote energy and are thinking about working out, go for it! That way, you start your day/night off right, and you won’t be pondering whether or not you should have done it when you had more of a chance.

- “Bodies are meant to move.” ‘Tis true, as the saying goes. Lethargic bodies are great at times, but we also have to keep in mind, they also lead to a great source of depression. When your body is not moving, it can grow more accustomed to being sedative or sick, therefore causing more difficulties to move in the future.
- It’s never too late. People, especially women, inspire us every day to get up and out. Age diversification has been proving that to us more and moreover the years. You can start exercising and be at your top fit form at any point in your life but now is the best time, of course, ideally.
- “Everything counts in large amounts.” You don’t always need a gym to keep active.

Try going for a walk outside or close to a park or join a local running community. Even doing push-ups and watching YouTube videos in your room can lead a long way.
