You may not always develop a potbelly with overeating, binge eating, and stress alone. There could be several more reasons that could lead you to an excess of visceral fat on your body, however, its deposition on your abdominal region gives an impression of improper eating habits more than anything else. Here’s a blog post about how you can reduce belly fat in a fast and natural way!

A flatter midsection may ease away your swimsuit concerns however, a stronger core has a myriad of health benefits beyond aesthetics. Not only does a stronger core provide more stability to your body and make your workouts more effective, but it also protects against numerous health conditions linked to excess belly fat.

You may develop a bulging belly due to some hereditary or medical reasons too or may be due to a weaker metabolism process. The trick is to identify those factors and observe a healthier and fitness-centric lifestyle for the best results. Here’s how our fitness experts advise their clients to go about faster weight loss.

Why is it important to melt belly fat?

Your midsection may quickly make you attractive or unattractive to other people, depending on how you look. An improper pattern of weight gain could also affect your Body Mass Index or BMI adversely and can court several illnesses like BP and heart diseases. It may also affect your energy and immunity levels just as bad.

We would thus recommend that you go for a concentrated and personalized approach to burn visceral fat faster. While this can’t happen overnight (like you can’t magically a lot of weight in a fortnight or a month), you can still help yourself to a newer change in your lifestyle in a slower but regular way.

PS: We would also recommend that you consult a nutritionist and a fitness trainer for your personalized fitness goals. They would also help you make better eating and drinking choices to reduce your obesity.

How to Lose Belly Fat in 2 Weeks?

Another point worth noting is that you should not overdo them or stretch them beyond a certain limit. You can’t lose all the excess visceral fat on your belly or your thighs or anywhere else in just a day or two alone- and it would take you some time to see the results. There is a natural and proper way to exercise and you should not take anything else.

Here are some exercises that you can do to keep your midsection in shape:

Scissor Kicks

Scissor Kicks

Starting with some simple and easy workouts, here’s how you can reduce belly fat in a natural and controlled manner. You may also develop some momentum and confidence going into the game.

Scissor Kicks may look simple but it burns fat after just a few reps. Lie down on your back with your hands behind your head and lift your head and shoulders off your matt. Do not pull on your neck and keep your elbows wide.

With your abdominal muscles, lift your legs off the ground in a straight line (the lower they are, the better it is) and scissor kick by crossing one foot over the other and alternating. You should keep alternating without pushing your chin forward or straining your neck. Perform 25 reps, stop for 5 seconds and perform 2 more sets.

Lie down on your back with feet together and legs extended. Place your arms overhead and inhale. As you exhale, suck in your abs, squeezing them, and raise your right arm and left leg causing contact between hand and foot or ankle. Lower to starting position while inhaling and repeat for 15 seconds. Switch sides immediately and repeat with an opposite side for 15 more seconds.

Leg Raises

Lie down on your mat and place your hands under your tailbone to stabilize your back. Tighten your core and lift your legs using your abdominals until they are perpendicular to the ground. Keep your toes pointed and your legs straight. If you are unable to keep them straight, it is still okay to perform this exercise with your knees bent.

Slowly lower the legs back to the ground using your ab muscles. Do not drop your legs haphazardly as this will make the exercise ineffective. Avoid this exercise if it causes pain in the lower back, though you may keep doing it if it is only a little soreness in your lower belly that you can withstand.



Lie down on your back, stretching your arms and legs so that you form a straight line with your body. Inhale deeply and bring your arms overhead. Begin to curl your body off the mat, starting from the shoulders, vertebrae by vertebrae. The slower you do this move, mimicking a curling motion rather than going just straight up, the more effective the exercise will be.

Exhale when your upper body forms a right angle with your legs and continues rolling forward so that you can reach your toes. Inhale and return to starting position, again very slowly. Repeat 10 times focusing on the parts where visceral fat is maximum.
