I have been a type 2 Diabetic for almost 2 years. I "handle" my sugar by diet and with Metformin. I have have or use to have most of the symptoms of metabolic syndrome and I weigh 280 lbs. I am trying without any success to reduce my belly fat. before the Diabetes hit, I could swim and do crunchs on my abominitizer and the belly fat would subside. Now, I am losing only a small amount of weight, a 1l a week, after doing 1 to 2 hours of exercise a day, 7 days/week, and it is coming off everywhere but my belly. Is there any foods I should avoid? Is there an foods I should try that will encourage a drop in belly fat? Are there any exercises I can do that will encourage a drop in bell fat?
Eat legumes, whole grain bread and snacks (trail mix), oat cereals, walnuts, fresh fruits and vegetables and mushrooms, dried fruit, fish, lean meat (grass fed beef), high Omega 3 fatty acid eggs. Avoid processed foods and fatty meats. Do this for a month and watch the inches fall off.
