5 Tips To Get A Flat Tummy… Fast
By Ingrid Macher
Nothing can ruin your confidence faster than belly fat. Before I made my transformation and lost 55 pounds in 90 days… All I wanted was a flat tummy… with some sexy abs… But no matter how hard I worked… I couldn’t get rid of that frustrating “pouch.” I’d diet and exercise, but nothing I tried got me any closer to my goal. But then I did some research and found out why belly fat can be especially hard to lose. It turns out, a lot of the fat is actually stored under your stomach muscles. And you’ll never get rid of this fat by simply cutting calories or running on a treadmill. It’s much more complicated than that. Because to get this fat under control, you first have to get certain hormones under control… hormones which cause you to store fat around the midsection. But by following these 5 simple tips, you’ll take control of your hormones… and force your body to melt that stubborn belly fat.
Tip #1: Make sure you get enough sleep.
It’s funny. When we think of losing weight, we think of being active.
But sometimes the best thing you can do for your body is the thing that requires the least amount of effort…
Sleep! Lack of sleep has been shown to lead to weight gain. It makes us insulin resistant… which sends us into fat storage mode. It also controls our levels of leptin, which is known as the hunger hormone. So without enough sleep, we’re going to crave more food… making it harder for us to get the slim waistline we’re after.
So make sure you get at least 7 hours of sleep per night.
Tip #2: Reduce stress.
Stress isn’t just something that takes its toll on you mentally. Its effects are actually felt by your body.
When you’re stressed, your body produces a hormone called cortisol. Unfortunately, too much of this hormone causes your body to store belly fat. So it’s extremely important you control your stress levels. Exercise is a great way to do this. But make sure you also take time to allow your body and mind to rest completely.
A great way to do this is by meditation. Just close your eyes, play some music, and let your mind go where it wants to go.
Tip #3: Have good posture.
Many people underestimate the effects good posture has on their appearance.
By standing up straight and pulling in your tummy, you’re indirectly working your stomach muscles all day… which helps them get that toned appearance. But that’s the only reason to practice good posture…
Another reason is… is simply makes you look skinnier! By making the decision to stand up straight, you look much healthier and much more graceful than if you slouch.
Tip #4: Eat high-fiber “super foods.”
It’s hard to have a flat belly when you’re bloated. And the way you prevent the bloat is by including a lot of high-fiber foods in your diet, which keep your digestion regular. Some great choices here are: wheat germ, chia seeds, and flax seed.
Tip #5: Eat small meals every 3 hours.
This is another way to prevent the bloating people get after eating a big meal.
By eating small meals more regularly, you make it easier on your body to digest those meals.
So you avoid bloating. Plus, these small meals keep your metabolism revved up… so you automatically blast more fat! Make sure to have a nice snack between lunch and dinner. Aim for foods high in protein and fiber. This will help boost your metabolism and keep you from overeating at dinner time.
By following these 5 tips, you’ll be able to make incredible progress… and get a flat tummy in no time.
I did it… and I know you can do it.
