Detailed Answer:
Hello dear. Reducing belly fat requires lot of effort and commitment on regular basis. I will tell you some of the very important tips through which one can reduce belly fat. Plan it accordingly

1. Eat Plenty of Soluble Fiber

Make an effort to consume high-fiber foods every day. Excellent sources of soluble fiber include flaxseeds, shirataki noodles, Brussels sprouts, avocados, legumes and blackberries.

2. Avoid Foods That Contain Trans Fats

Trans fats are created by pumping hydrogen into unsaturated fats such as soybean oil.

They’re found in some margarines and spreads, and they’re also added to some packaged foods. To help reduce belly fat and protect your health, read ingredient labels carefully and stay away from products that contain trans fats. These are often listed as “partially hydrogenated” fats.

3. Don’t Drink Too Much Alcohol

Cutting back on alcohol may help reduce your waist size. You don’t need to give it up altogether if you enjoy it, but limiting the amount you drink in a single day can help.

4. Eat a High-Protein Diet

Be sure to include a good protein source at every meal, such as dairy, whey protein or nuts.

5. Reduce Your Stress Levels

Practicing yoga or meditation can be effective methods.

6. Don’t Eat a Lot of Sugary Foods

It’s important to realize that more than just refined sugar can lead to belly fat gain. Even “healthier” sugars (such as real honey) should be used sparingly.

7. Regular exercise for half an hour daily

In whatever capacity you can do exercise, you must do without fail for half an hour daily

8. Cut Back on Carbs, Especially Refined Carbs

Reducing carb intake can be very beneficial for losing fat, including abdominal fat

9. Replace Some of Your Cooking Fats With Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is one of the healthiest fats you can eat.

10. Perform Resistance Training (Lift Weights)

Resistance training, also known as weight lifting or strength training, is important for preserving and gaining muscle mass.

11. Avoid Sugar-Sweetened Beverages

Sugar-sweetened beverages are loaded with liquid fructose, which can make you gain belly fat. To lose belly fat, it’s best to completely avoid sugar-sweetened beverages such as soda, punch and sweet tea, as well as alcoholic mixers containing sugar.

12. Get Plenty of Restful Sleep

In addition to sleeping at least 7 hours per night, make sure you’re getting sufficient quality sleep.

13. Track Your Food Intake and Exercise

Many things can help you lose weight and belly fat, but consuming fewer calories than your body needs for weight maintenance is key

14. Stop Drinking Fruit Juice

Although fruit juice provides vitamins and minerals, it’s just as high in sugar as soda and other sweetened beverages. To help reduce excess belly fat, replace fruit juice with water, unsweetened iced tea or sparkling water with a wedge of lemon or lime.

15. Add Apple Cider Vinegar to Your Diet

Drinking apple cider vinegar has impressive health benefits, including lowering blood sugar levels. taking 1 to 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar per day is safe for most people and may lead to modest fat loss.

16. Eat Probiotic Foods or Take a Probiotic Supplement

Probiotics are bacteria found in some foods and supplements. They have all sorts of health benefits, including improved gut health and enhanced immune function.

17. Try Intermittent Fasting

One popular method involves 24-hour fasts once or twice a week. Another involves fasting every day for 16 hours and eating all your food in an 8 hour period.

18. Drink Green Tea

Green tea is an exceptionally healthy beverage.
