Try These 10 Tricks To A Flat Tummy. Festive is here, its time for holidays and outings. You might need to wear that crop top, rock that bikini, or even for the much brave, go topless. Whatever your reasons maybe, you need to tone your tummy. Its one of the worrisome areas when it comes to losing weight. The following tips will help you be the envy of your peers.
1. Eat At The Right Hour
You must eat a snack that contains protein between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. Go for a protein bar, a piece of low-fat cheese, or some almonds with an organic apple. Eating every three to four hours will keep your blood sugar even.
2. Have A Ball
Do the ball exchange three times a week. Lay flat on your back with your arms above your head and legs straight out. Start with a stability ball above your head in your hands. Bring the ball up above your chest as you bring your legs up to meet the ball and place it between your ankles. Bring the ball back down to the floor with your legs and straighten your arms back out over your head.
3. Cut Down On Sugar
Eat as close to zero grams of sugar as possible. This will keep insulin levels low and also keep levels of glucagon high. Glucagon, a hormone, is the best friend you could ever have in the struggle for a flat belly! The closer to zero grams of sugar you consume, the lower your insulin and the higher your glucagon.
4. Chew Your Food
Chew your food to prevent bloating. Chew food until it is like applesauce in your mouth. Digestion begins in the mouth, and without proper chewing, food is not well-digested. Better-digested food means less gas and bloating.
5. Have A Winning Program
Diet first, Cardio second, Building muscle third, and Abs exercises last. Follow it and you can safely lose one to two pounds a week. Spend 60 minutes a day preparing healthier meals. Spend 20 minutes a day three to five times weekly doing cardio. Spend 15 minutes a day three times a week strength training. Finally, spend 5 minutes a day three times a week doing abs exercises.
6. Reduce Your Salt Intake
Salt can cause bloating in your stomach. Use natural sea salt or kosher salt, which is lower in sodium teaspoon for teaspoon than traditional table salts. And stay away from soy sauce: Even low-sodium soy sauce is still high in sodium and will cause practically instant bloating.
7. Punch It Out
Add boxing to your cardio routine. When you throw punches with weights or at a fast pace, you’re working your core in a way that helps to flatten your midsection. You must engage your core to throw punches, and twisting your torso works all the ab muscles.
8. Size Matters
Eating portion-controlled meals that include whole-grain foods and monounsaturated fats throughout the day is the best way to eat for a flat belly: People who eat whole grains lose more abdominal fat. And making most of the fats you eat MUFAs reduces ab flab.
9.Try The Flat-Belly Trick
Play up a different body part to draw attention from your middle. If it’s your legs, wear skirts or slim pants. Shoulders—bare them even if just a bit with a boatneck or sweetheart neckline. Cleavage? Make sure your bra does its job. If your bra rides up in the back, the bra has likely stretched out. If it accentuates back flab or if the space between the cups doesn’t lie flat, go up a size.
10. Laugh it up!
The best thing for your abs is laughing. Every time you laugh it strengthens your abs. There are even laughing yoga classes. If you start busting a gust, you are absolutely toning your abs.
