How to Lose Belly Fat in 5 Days Without Drugs

You may want to lose a few pounds of belly fat quickly for a special occasion such as a wedding or class reunion. If you're trying to lose belly fat in five days, there are some things you can do to achieve your goal naturally, without the use of drugs.

Things You'll Need
  • Exercise equipment
  • Stopwatch
Cut down on the amount of carbohydrates in your diet. Carbohydrates bloat your body, especially carbs high in starch such as pasta and potatoes. Carbs also flood your body with insulin after they are consumed, which interferes with your body's ability to burn fat. Instead of carbs, eat lean meats such as chicken, fish and lean beef. Add green vegetables such as broccoli, spinach or small salad. For breakfast, instead of a bagel or cereal, enjoy a two-egg omelet with fresh veggies and a side of fresh fruit for nutrients.

Avoid alcohol. Your body stores alcohol as fat. Alcohol also stops your fat metabolism until it can be cleared from your body by the liver. Since your liver is instrumental in the fat burning process, it cannot process fat while it is busy clearing out the alcohol from your body. Also, any food you eat at the same time you consume alcohol will be stored as fat until the liver can purge the alcohol and resume its fat burning responsibility.

Perform high intensity interval training, or HIIT. HIIT is a method of training where the you perform an aerobic exercise such as jogging, but add a twist to it. For example, after you stretch and warm-up, begin jogging at about 50 percent effort for 30 seconds. Once 30 seconds have passed, sprint as fast as you can for another 30 seconds. After sprinting for 30 seconds, return to your jogging pace for another 30 seconds. Repeat this process until you have jogged and sprinted five times. After the fifth sprint session, jog for another 30 seconds, then walk five minutes to let your muscles cool down properly. HIIT differs from regular exercise in that it will raise your metabolism and keep it raised for several hours, which burns more fat all day long. Try to do your HIIT in the mornings each day to burn fat all day.
