Hi, Heathinn. In addition to the great exercise tips from Meagan Lee and the basic principles of the program, the following have also be found to help deal with belly fat:
* Probiotics, as in high-quality yogurt – correcting your intestinal bacteria. It sounds odd, but more and more research is pointing to this. Here’s our summary https://www.trimdownclub.com/how-are-probiotics-relevant-to-weight-loss-and-related-health/.
* Favor legumes over animal meats
* Favor berries and pomegranate as fruits; if out of season, then try frozen berries or 100% fresh-squeezed juice with no sugar added.
* Favor green tea with a twist of lemon as a beverage
* Go to bed at a reasonable hour (i.e. 10 or earlier) and get enough sleep in general – research has shown that an unfavorable sleep pattern can make belly fat stubborn.
When going through the Menu Planner and preparing your meals, be sure you are sticking to basic points such as combining proteins with carbohydrates, avoiding concentrated sources of simple sugars, using high-quality fats such as olive oils or sources of omega-3 fatty acids, and sticking with multiple small meals throughout the day.

Heathinn,
You are doing great with walking the stairs and walking daily! I would suggest exercise wise doing some basic body weight movements every other day. Try doing wall push ups and squats for 3 sets of 10 reps. If you are not sore after these you can add in more sets or repetitions. The links below are to show you what the exercises look like.

4 months ago I was 435 lbs, and could not walk up a flight of stairs without getting winded. I am now down to 373lbs, and in far better physical shape. I have lost a little bit of the fat around my mid section, but not much. I walk daily, and I have significantly cut back on how much I eat. Still I cannot get rid of this belly fat. Does anyone have any suggestions for burning off the spare tire?
