hello Bhaskar
As you said that you want to reduce your belly fat. And you already started jogging, taking healthy foods, avoid junk/oily foods and that's very good as at least you are trying to reduce belly fat and you want to be free from fatness.

As you have will to be fit and look slim so believe my friend , you will loose your belly weight but for this you have to continue trying and trying again with constant enthusiasm. However , now I will tell you some helpful ways as below:

1. wake up in the morning and take a glass of lemon water.

2. now go for jogging and walking.

3. now after jogging take a rest of 15 mins and relax your body.

4. now sit in SUKHASAN and do Kapalbhati Pranayama . trust this Pranayama is very helpful as my father has reduced belly fat by this Pranayama . please see below how to do Kapalbhati Pranayama.

How To Do Kapalbhati ?

Kapalbhati Pranayama steps are usually very straightforward. However, it is important to ensure that you perform it properly or you may end up hurting yourself. You will also need to exercise some precautions when you perform it. You can find detailed step by step instructions on the technique here:
Sit straight with your spine erect and cross your legs in front of you.
Take in a deep breath and exhale quickly and suddenly, making a puffing sound while you do it. Focus on exhaling forcefully and not on the inhalation.
When you exhale, draw your abdominal muscles inward simultaneously. Your abdomen should rise when you inhale and fold when you exhale.
Continue for 10 breaths and then take a break. Perform two more similar sets.

if you are still not able to understand how to do this , I will suggest you to watch AASTHA Channel Baba Ramdev yoga at 5 am every day. you can also buy Baba Ramdev Pranayama and yoga Hindi/English books and DVD /CD. And these are very helpful resources...

At the end, I will tell you to believe in yourself because self confidence is the first step and very powerful tool to success.

Belly- fat results due to poor metabolism of the body and as such in order to reduce weight, the following points would be helpful to you.
1) Avoid excess stress since stress cause body- weight.
2) Sound- sleep in night is an important step towards regulating your metabolism. In that way, you can control your weight.
3) Enhance Protiens - intake in your diet especially white portion of the eggs is very effective in this direction.
4) Consumption of water has to be stepped up for your fat loss. Even you can resort to a glass of hot - water consumption prior to retirement to bed.
5) Early in the morning, you may take a glass of hot- water containing lemon- juice. Half of the Lemons would be sufficient. Lemon would remove the toxins present in the body- system because of high content of Vitamin C in the Lemon.
6) A small piece of ginger 20 minutes prior to your principal meal would acclerate the metabolic condition of the body.
7) Take sufficient salad containing Tomatoes, Onion and Cucumber in your meals.
8) Avoid excess salt since this may cause water- retention.
9) Consume less sugar as well since this may result in addition to weight.
Resort to yoga and some relaxation technique to minimise the stress- level.

Movement is the best way to loose weight. If you remain idle and prefer sedentary lifestyle then you're going to have some issues. Most of the people with such lifestyle gain weight. You have to keep on moving. And also you should be spending time trying to reduce negative thoughts. Make sure to eat healthy and avoid junk food. If you can do that then there is no issue of gaining weight. Also avoid alcohol and potato, green peas in your food. This way your diet can be controlled. I have personally found that such small changes in lifestyle makes big difference.

1. Do exercise.
2. If not exercise walk on regular basis.
3. Eat healthy.
4. Avoid junkfood.
5. Move as much as possible. Less idle lifestyle.
6. Get some hobby and keep yourself busy.
7. Watch less TV.
8. Less worry about life.
