Losing weight requires determination and consistency, but for those of you who just “don’t have enough time in the day,” or just simply find exercise boring, you’re in luck. There are plenty of things you can do every day that hardly require any effort. For instance, drink more water, go to sleep earlier and eat slower. Trying to spot-reduce is an unrealistic goal. It’s simply not possible. The idea that you can lose fat from a specific body part by working the muscle near it makes no sense because muscle and fat are gained and lost in different ways. But there are certain fixes that can lead to a flatter belly in seemingly no time.
