Use an adult energy needs calculator to estimate your calorie intake needs; then subtract the 500 to 1,000 calories for weight loss. For example, a 28-year-old woman who is 5 foot, 9-inches tall weighs 175 pounds and is lightly active — less than an hour a day — burns about 2,400 calories daily. She’ll burn about 2 pounds of fat in a week if she eats 1,400 calories daily, or 1 pound a week if she eats 1,900 calories a day.

Removing saturated fat (the kind found most often in animal products like meat) and replacing it with monounsaturated fat in moderation is undoubtedly a good thing. It helps lower LDL “bad” cholesterol and the chance of heart attack and stroke. So it’s a good approach for anyone with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease.
Even a thin woman may be frustrated to discover that, as her estrogen levels decline during perimenopause, she is suddenly sporting belly fat, a place that she may never have had to worry about before now.

Your belly fat only wins when you give up on getting rid of it. Being persistent is a very natural trait. Nature is very persistent, time keeps on going no matter what, and over time if you neglect your belly fat the problem will only get worse. That’s why it’s good to be just as persistent as nature, and take steps each day to eat the right foods, get a bit of activity, be happy, and nourish yourself. As you do these little things each day, they will accumulate as more and more time passes. It’s natural for things to take time to work, which is why you want to avoid fast track promises and gimmicks to lose belly fat, because in all likelihood it will just backfire and you’ll be back at square one trying to start all over again.
Cut down on sugar: Sugar contains no nutrients; it just provides empty calories that your body doesn’t use. It causes blood sugar rushes and insulin spikes. Try to cut down on baked goods and heavily processed cereals contain lots of sugar.
According to recent studies, instead of working out for hours or running a few miles, doing short bursts of active exercises is very helpful in reducing stubborn fat. For example, if you are walking on a treadmill, randomly increase the speed for a few seconds and get back to walking.
Breakfast: Leftover Quiche. Last night’s sweet potato quiche reheats beautifully for a quick breakfast you’ll look forward to all night (hint: save the recipe from dinner to make for an impressive brunch go-to!)
Pine nuts are calorie-burning kings guaranteed to lend a helping hand if you want to slim and trim. The crunchy delights are full of heart-healthy fatty acids that promote your body’s production of satiety hormones. The pinolenic acid in pine nuts helps you feel full and resist the temptation to make unhealthy diet-derailing food choices. They also have the highest protein content of any nut.
