Question: I have a big belly, like with little salt and little fat, but still I can't remove the fat in the abdominal area. What else can I do? Ana María (Houston).
Answer: In addition to controlling fats and salt, it is necessary to follow a moderately hypocaloric eating plan, which provides approximately 500 to 1000 calories less than those normally consumed and that allows a weight loss of between 0.5 and 1 kg to the week. To achieve this, it is best to follow a varied and balanced diet that includes daily fruits, vegetables, legumes, cereals, skimmed dairy and olive oil and regularly fish, lean meats and eggs. Remember to control alcohol consumption, which hides empty calories (7 kcal per gram) and drink at least 2 liters of water a day.
