Core exercises improve muscle tone; however, for maximum results to shred belly fat, it all comes down to daily nutritional habits. Always keep the 80/20 rule in mind: 80 percent of your daily eating habits should always be clean with unprocessed whole foods. Don’t count calories, either. Instead focus on the portion size and the quality of what you are eating, such as complex carbs, proteins and good fats. Consuming these factors synergistically and in a balanced manner will ultimately help reduce belly fat!
