Maybe part of the problem is the name, but "sugar belly" kind of sounds like its own candy that you'd want to eat, not a condition to avoid.
How to get rid of your beer belly
Here's the good stuff! As is often the case, the best way to get rid of your beer belly is to avoid getting one in the first place. "Prevention of weight gain in the first place is the best recommendation," Dr. Grunvald says.
That's not so helpful for the people who already proudly sport a gut. If you're past the prevention stage and have already put on some extra pounds, there are ways to combat belly fat.
Cleaning up your diet is a good place to start, though you probably already knew that. You want to aim for mostly plants, healthy fats, and complex carbs like whole grains, Dr. Grunvald recommends. Exercise is important, too; high-intensity interval training may be the best to combat belly fat, he says, especially if you have an insulin resistance.
