How To Deal With A Stomach That Looks Bloated?
Hello, I am a junior high school student aged 15 years. I exercise almost every day because I take part in martial arts athletes. Now my weight is 48 kg and my height is 155 cm. I already look so thin but there is still a rather large belly fat. How do you get rid of belly fat? What kind of sport is it? Thank you in advance.

Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service.
Based on the weight and height data you listed, your current body mass index (BMI) is around 20 kg / m2, which means it is included in the normal category, which is in the range of 18.5-22.9 kg / m2. Therefore you do not need to worry about losing weight too far, because if it is lower than 18.5 kg / m2, it is categorized as underweight (not normal). I advise you to keep your body in good condition by maintaining your current food and physical activity.
In addition, keep in mind that the type of exercise you do does not determine the location of fat burning in the body. The body manages fat systematically and stores fat reserves in certain areas such as the stomach, arms, thighs, and others. Therefore, while it is true that certain types of exercise can train and build muscle mass in the area, it does not directly burn fat in that area as well. Whatever type of exercise or physical activity you do, at a certain intensity and frequency it can reduce fat reserves in the stomach.
Doing regular physical activity is a good thing to keep your body in shape and prevent future diseases. However, keep in mind that something excessive is also not good, so don't forget to also do other things, such as:
Get enough rest, about 6-8 hours a day Eat nutritious food Consumption of enough water Avoid smoking and consumption of alcohol and illegal drugs. So, hopefully it can be useful, yes.
