8 Things You Can Do Today to Have a Flatter Stomach Tomorrow
Are you desperate for a flatter stomach? Well, you’ll be pleased to know that there are some steps you can take today to get a flatter stomach tomorrow! Don’t misunderstand this information though; it’s in no way a quick fix. Although your stomach will look less bloated the next day, you’ll need to continue using these tips to get real, long lasting results.
- Drink Lots of Water
Water helps to beat the bloat as it flushes toxins and helps to get fat moving. It also stops your body from retaining water weight providing you drink enough of it. You should aim for 2-3 litres per day for great results.
- Avoid Foods that Bloat
Foods that bloat vary from person to person. One person might find that milk bloats them, while another may find that cabbage bloats them. Pay attention to how you feel after certain foods to see what your triggers could be. I recommend cutting out white carbs, dairy, and legumes and then slowly reintroducing them to see if they upset your stomach.
- Reduce Your Salt Intake.
Too much salt and your belly can bloat like a balloon. This is because water makes the salt molecules expand, making our stomach look much bigger. Try to keep your salt intake at a good level. Make sure it’s sea salt too.
- Eat Clean.
Clean food is essential for a lean stomach. Clean food is categorised as foods with just one ingredient, such as veg and fresh meat. Prepackaged food, microwave meals, and food that isn’t natural should be avoided. Only have one or two cheat meals per week.
- Go to the Gym.
Go to the gym, but don’t spend hours on the treadmill and do hundreds of crunches. Instead, do a 20 minute ab circuit targeting the entire core, including lower ab workouts. You need to target the entire stomach, otherwise your efforts will be useless. Do some HIIT sprints on the treadmill to burn fat and calories too. You should be in there no longer than an hour!
- Chew Your Food Properly.
If you fail to chew your food properly, you’ll swallow air. This is another way we end up bloating ourselves without realising it. Chew your food properly, and concentrate on each mouthful.
- Avoid Junk Food.
Junk food includes things such as chocolate, crisps, sweets, and even prepackaged food. Even foods that are labeled ‘diet’ or ‘low fat’ should be avoided. All foods made in a factory are pretty bad for us. Try to find healthy alternatives. The better you eat, the less you’ll crave.
- Avoid Alcohol.
Alcohol is full of calories, but many don’t think that they count. One fruit cider is the equivalent to a chocolate bar! This all adds up, leading to bloating in the short term and flab in the long term.
If you do these 8 things today, you should notice a flatter tummy tomorrow. The longer you use these tips, the better your stomach will look over time. The rest of your body should improve too!
