Always remember to focus on being the happiest, healthiest version of you and you’ll feeling amazing from the inside out.
Here are six easy ways to achieve a flat stomach:
UP THE H20:
When you’re not drinking enough water, your body actually retains fluids to prevent you from becoming dehydrated. Get yourself a 1l or 2l bottle of water, keep it with you at all times and sip consistently throughout the day to avoid a bloated belly caused by lack of fluids.
Chewing gum and carbonated beverages (think soft drink, sparkling water, champagne) can all lead to a bloated tummy due to a buildup of air and gas getting caught in your stomach. Artificial sweeteners, such as xylitol, aspartame and mannitol, can cause an upset tummy as they aren’t easily absorbed in your small intestine. Either ditch the sweetness altogether or opt for a more natural alternative like honey.
DON’T RESIST THE RESISTANCE:
If you want your leanest, fittest body then you need to be incorporating resistance training into your workout schedule. This isn’t a ‘should’ it is a ‘must’. Resistance training tones and shapes lean muscle, increasing the speed of our metabolism and causing us to burn more calories all day long. More muscle and less fat increases our chances of getting that washboard stomach.
It can be tempting to eat on the go but it’s really important to sit down and slow down when eating. When you eat too quickly, you don’t chew your food effectively which makes it harder to digest. Eating quickly means you’re also more likely to swallow air with your food which causes that big bloated belly and stomach discomfort.
