Losing belly fat is a great way to improve your overall health. Belly fat is associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and a long list of other health complications. However, for women in particular, belly fat can also be the hardest type of fat to lose. Fortunately, there are many exercises to lose belly fat that you can do at home. Try these strategies to trim your abdominal region and safely burn belly fat at home.

Incorporate Aerobic Exercise
Strength training is a critical part of staying fit, but aerobic exercise has been proven to be effective in battling belly fat. Getting your heart rate up is a good way to burn fat. Riding an exercise bike, walking, jogging, or taking online aerobics classes are all good ways to get aerobic activity without going to the gym. Try to work up to 300 minutes of aerobic activity per week for peak benefits.  

Focus on Strength Training
When you build muscle, you’ll burn more fat at rest, including belly fat. To lose belly fat, experts recommend using heavier weight and cutting down your rest time between sets. Even a 15-minute workout with heavy weights will boost fat burning. However, it’s worth checking in with a trainer to ensure proper form for weightlifting so you reduce the risk of injury. 

Don’t Overlook Nutrition
If you want to lose belly fat, dietary changes are necessary in addition to aerobics and strength training. Working with a trainer can help you design a nutrition plan that fits your fat burning goals. In general, reducing your intake of sugars and simple carbohydrates will be a good start. You should also include more belly fat burning foods like avocados, berries, citrus fruit, and green tea in your diet.
