To get better results, both exercise and diet are essential. To get rid of fat around the waist and other body parts, you need to create a calorie deficit of 500 to 1000 calories daily (calorie deficit is what happens when you burn more calories than you eat).
Fat loss diet should focus on protein, but you still need to get enough of other nutrients, including healthful fats (such as those found in olive oil and avocado) and carbs. To make your diet more healthful, reduce your sugar and salt intake, cut out junk foods and other sources of trans fats, and steer clear of fried foods. Instead, include more whole grains and fresh vegetables and fruits in your diet. And don't forget about dairy, especially such excellent sources of protein as cottage cheese.
