Thereby if despite exercising, following clean eating and sticking to a healthy diet, you are not losing belly fat, then you must get your vitamin D levels checked.

The easiest way to increase your levels of vitamin D is to bask in the sunshine. Sunrays activate the generation of vitamin D in our body naturally. Therefore, you must aim at spending some time in the sun to get the process going.
