Before you decide to schedule your tummy tuck appointment, we’ve made reducing, short and sweet for you. Don’t loose hope in the traditional methods of slimming down, here are seven ways to a flatter tummy. –mckenzie harris
Switch to Green Tea
Studies have shown that green tea drinkers lose notably more belly fat than those who drink caffeinated beverages. If drinking green tea isn’t your thing, mix things up a bit and make your own frozen bars from iced green tea at home.
Skip the Crunches
Well maybe not skip them entirely, but stop obsessing over them and expecting overnight results. Spot training is never the key to a flat belly. Try taking it back to your childhood days and jumping rope. Not only does it work your abs, but your legs and arms benefit too. Start with twenty minutes three times a week, and work hard enough to break a sweat.
Go High Waisted
High waist is flattering on most figures, accentuating your tiny mid section whether you choose to go for a skirt, jeans or pants. They all downplay ab flab and draw the eye to your waist which for many, is the narrowest part of the mid-section.
Try a Natural Sleep Aid
Studies have shown a link between sleeping and weight loss, finding that people who sleep from six to eight hours a night have significantly less stomach fat than those who sleep fewer than six hours. Taking a natural supplement with melatonin and valerian root, helps your body ease into your sweet dreams.
Work Those Back Muscles
You have to make a conscious effort when focusing on your posture, and a strong back is critical to good posture. It helps to suck in your stomach, giving you an instant slimming appearance. Just imagine your spine as an elevator going up and lift your rib cage up and away from your hips.
Add Wheat To Your Breakfast
Whole grains have been known to fight the belly fat associated with heart disease and diabetes, whereas refined grains like those in white bread and pasta offer none of those benefits. So boil up some wheat berries and serve with agave syrup for a tasty alternative to oatmeal.
What To Avoid
To prevent stomach bloating, steer clear of canned foods, carbs, and carbonated drinks. Go for healthy natural deflators like herbal teas, protein, and fresh vegetables.
