To get a flat belly, you don’t have to hunt for secret celebrity diet and exercise plans, and you don’t have to spend a ton of money of fad diets, diet pills, liposuction, and other nonsense! You can lose inches off your belly, drop a ton of weight, enhance your overall health, and do all of this 100% naturally without spending a ton of money, and you can get amazing results fairly quickly. But how? Here are 3 PROVEN ways to get you started:
1. Switch to doing workouts that are designed to increase your metabolism…
Many people spend too much of their time doing exercises that don’t do anything for them except burn off calories from foods they JUST ate for the day, and/or the exercises will end up burning off muscle tissue!
Those types of exercises are long duration cardio workouts.
Long duration cardio is basically low intensity exercising done for very long periods of time. This type of exercise is okay if you are already in shape, or if you are doing physical rehabilitation, but not if you need to lose pounds of fat, and ESPECIALLY not if you want to build lean muscle tissue. Unfortunately for me… I had to learn that the HARD WAY!
What I did was I started doing exercises that are designed to increase your metabolic rate. Workouts such as this would be high intensity interval training, high intensity cardio, and resistance training. The beautiful thing about these types of exercises is that you burn off STORED body fat, you get results quicker, you MAINTAIN muscle tissue, and this type of exercising takes WAY LESS time than traditional cardio.
2. Naturally get rid of bloating…
Bloating is a frequent problem for many people. The number one cause is the consumption of processed foods and/or salty foods. What also causes bloating is a lack of water in combination of eating too much salty foods and processed foods. But besides those common issues, another reason is an accumulation of toxins in the body. With all of this, what ends up happening is your stomach will appear bigger than usual, and you’ll feel tired, heavy, bloated, and very irritable. After just writing that, it made me remember how much I couldn’t stand being bloated!
The best things to do to get rid of bloating is to literally do the opposite of the above. Try your hardest to eliminate the consumption of processed foods, decrease your consumption of salty foods, increase your water intake, and naturally detoxify your body.
3. Eat to boost your metabolism…
Changing your mindset with how you eat to focusing more on ensuring you are eating in a way to boost your metabolism is a VERY smart move. Doing so will pretty much make it a guarantee that you’ll get the body you’ve wanted in no time.
Why is that?
Well, if you eat to boost your metabolism, you will be giving the body what it has wanted all along: Proper nutrients, eaten more frequently, and eaten in different patterns.
Proper nutrients means getting ALL types of nutrients in your diet (in other words, no strict fad dieting nonsense). Eating more frequently means eating smaller portions of food more often during the day. And eating in different patterns means shifting the calories from the foods you eat (the diet I went on was based on this technique).
All of the above will SKYROCKET your metabolism, release fat burning hormones, and cause you to flatten your stomach lightning quick!
