DON’T STARVE YOURSELF! IT WON’T HELP YOU LOSE STOMACH FAT FASTER. Starving yourself will not help you burn belly fat. Cut calories, by all means, especially the empty calories, but to be healthy and lose belly fat, you need to eat well. Starving yourself is dangerous, terribly unhealthy, and it won’t work anyway! It wrecks your metabolism and leads to many other health problems. Don’t even make the mistake of thinking that skipping breakfast, lunch, or dinner will make you lose weight.
