A simple no brainer to boost your weight loss goal is to ideally drink lots of water throughout the day. What water does is that it enhances the process of weight loss by increasing your metabolism, which increases the rate of calorification, i.e., burning of calories in your body, although temporarily.
You may have also noticed that drinking water along with side meals also gives you a feeling of fullness while reducing your appetite. It is recommended that one drinks about 3+ liters of water every day to maximize weight loss.

Meat, fish legumes, and eggs are a few healthy sources of protein that you should consume for a high protein diet. Such a diet is found to be linked to decreased belly fat and reduced appetite giving you a full feeling in your stomach.
A study found that having a high protein diet lowered the amount of ghrelin in the body than a high carbohydrate breakfast. Ghrelin is a hormone that stimulates the feeling of being hungry.
Lower your carbohydrates
By eliminating refined grains in your food such as pasta, white bread, cereals, and pre-packaged products, you can accelerate your weight loss.
You should ideally replace them with whole-grain foods like brown rice, barley, quinoa, etc.
A study has found that eating meals with a high quantity of refined cards leads to belly fat, while meals with a high quantity of whole grains do not contribute to belly fat.

You can get started by conducting resistance exercises by hitting the gym or working out at home. Squats, planks, lunges are some examples of low-intensity resistance workouts.
