As per studies, mornings before breakfast is the best time to workout. Evidence shows that working out on an empty stomach forces the body to burn more fat. The research conducted in 2010 showed that people who exercised in the morning before breakfast gained no weight and also retained good insulin levels. However, people who worked out after breakfast were found to have gained more weight and also developed insulin issues.  So the best way to lose weight is to work out as soon as you wake up.

Here are some exercises that will help you lose your belly fat in a months time:

1. Lunge Twist 

Being an exercise that involves both the hips and lower body, lunge twist is an excellent way to lose belly fat. It is a perfect workout for beginners. 15 reps of this exercise can change the way your belly looks.

Always ensure that you keep your spine straight while doing the exercise. Then twist your torso alone towards the right and then to the left.
