Getting rid of belly bloat can be quite an undertaking if you don't know the basics. So we’re to give you our top tips to getting that slimmer stomach fast.
CUT THE CALORIES
Cutting down your calorie intake is common knowledge if you want to lose weight or trim down certain areas. The general rule of thumb is to limit your daily to 500-1,000 to lose 1-2 pounds a week.
Experts warn that cutting down too much on calories might be counterproductive as it slows down the body's metabolic rate. So do it with moderation.
UP YOUR FIBER INTAKE
Getting more fiber, especially the soluble kind, can be beneficial if you're looking to trim down your stomach area as it's been known to delay stomach emptying. Fiber also decreases the number of calories your body absorbs which means less fat around your organs.
So make sure you include oats, flax seeds, avocados, legumes and blackberries to your diet.
ADD CARDIO TO YOUR ROUTINE
Aerobic exercises are an excellent way to burn off calories and improve heart health. They're also proven to trim down and strengthen the midsection so get active by running, walking or even swimming.
Water can be your friend on the road to slimming down as it works in three ways: first, it temporarily increases the body's metabolic rate. Second, it makes you feel fuller so you consume fewer calories and third, it relieves constipation and reduces the chances of getting the dreaded belly bloat.
Ease into your water routine by drinking a large glass of water before a meal and it can help you achieve your goals.
REDUCE YOUR STRESS LEVELS
Stress is a commonly-occurring thing for us but if kept unchecked it could lead to a host of problems including weight gain. Stress triggers the body to release of cortisol which has been known to increase the appetite and lead to fat being stored in the belly.
Yoga, meditation and other stress-relieving exercises the solution to keeping stress and hopefully belly fat at bay.
TRY INTERMITTENT FASTING
A pro-tip among dieters everywhere. Intermittent fasting is a method in which you alternate eating and fasting throughout the day.
This method reduces the chance of eating calories overall without the fuss.
AVOID SWALLOWING AIR AND GASES
Swallowing air and gases may cause stomach distention or stomach bloating in some people. So if you’re looking to make your stomach flatter then we highly suggest you limit your intake of carbonated drinks. As well as chewing gum, and talking while eating.
