If you want a slimmer stomach, cutting calories and exercising are must-dos.
But there are simple habits and foods that can promote a flat, toned tummy – yes, it’s important to talk about that.
These, right here, are very basic and simple tricks and tips that people overlook when trying to get a flat stomach – or at least, not a bloated one.
- Eat at the right time of the day.
Most people forget to eat snacks. No matter what, do not miss snacks. Snacks are important because they boosts metabolism and balances blood sugar. Eating every three to four hours will keep your blood sugar. With that, it’s very important NOT to skip any meals if you’re really targeting for weight loss and flat belly. Here’s a list of healthy snack options.
- Eat almonds with skins.
Linking to the one above, almonds make amazing snacks. These delicious and versatile nuts hold protein and fiber, not to mention vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant. Almonds are amazing for blocking calories. Research indicates that the composition of their cell walls may help reduce the absorption of all of their fat, making them an extra-lean nut.
- Munch on apples!
Another power snack, eat your apples! Besides from being deliciously refreshing and health, a large apple has five grams of fiber, but it’s also nearly 85 percent water, which helps you feel full. Keep in mind what they say, one of the best ways to lose weight is to feel yourself full.
- Eat light at night.
Eat four meals a day – but do not eat after 6. The after-6 diet is actually no joke. It does not fail in weight loss. Although it’s going to be hard to adjust to not eating at night, studies have shown that it can be related more to emotional issues than to real hunger. I guarantee you’ll wake up with a flatter tummy, and you’ll also have a better appetite for a fiber-rich breakfast, which makes you feel good for a beautiful day ahead.
- Eat some eggs.
Eggs are highly respected by dietitians because of their balance of essential amino acids (protein building blocks used by your body to manufacture everything from muscle fibers to brain chemicals). There is actually no excuse not to eat eggs – they’re convenient to cook, found almost at every store, and they’re delicious! The protein and fat in the egg may be contributing to the feeling of satiety.
- De-stress, enjoy being health and love your dieting!
Did you know that the best workout for your abs is laughter? It’s no myth – every time you laugh, your abs strengthen a little bit. The real point is, you should enjoy and don’t get stressed over the little things – it ruins your motivation and discipline. But still, have a good laugh!
