10 Proven Ways To Help Reduce Stubborn Belly Fat

8. Say no to yo-yo diets

Losing weight and then regaining it, known as yo-yo dieting or weight cycling, can make subsequent weight loss more difficult as well as more rapid weight regain.

Yo-yo diets have been shown to increase lipoprotein lipase (LPL), an enzyme that helps to clear fat out of the blood stream. LPL is particularly active in the abdominal area.[10][11]

What to do: Regular exercise can help to reduce the high LPL levels resulting from a yo-yo diet. Stick to the exercise regime as LPL level reduction can take a while to normalize.
