Losing weight: foods to eliminate and practical advice
As summer approaches, do you want to find your flat stomach?
A drastic diet is not necessary, and can even have harmful effects: deficiencies, demotivation, fatigue. All you have to do is eat well! Therefore, favor a balanced diet with dietary recipes that meet the needs of your metabolism. For information, you should know that a diet low in fiber and protein favors the accumulation of fat in your abdominal area.
To get a flat stomach, it is necessary to stay well hydrated. By drinking 1.5 liters of water daily and a glass of water 20 minutes before each meal, you will avoid overeating by regulating your sense of hunger. You should also know that too much insulin production by your body facilitates the accumulation of fat in your stomach. This is why industrial products, rich in sugar, are foods to be eliminated to lose belly.
To lose belly fat, you must also identify the factors that promote the accumulation of fat in your abdominal area. This can be due to a bad position at the table or the fact of eating near disturbing elements (television, telephone...). To have a flat stomach, you must also learn to de-stress. Indeed, negative thoughts influence the way you eat. So you may be tempted to eat more to combat your stress.
Finally, in order to have flat abs, exercising is essential. By exercising, your body will be able to digest food better, which will reduce fat storage in your belly. You will also burn excess fat and facilitate weight loss in the abdominal area. The best way to do this is to combine cardio sessions with strength training exercises, specifically targeting the abdominal area.
Diet can help, in addition to regular physical activity. What if you started by avoiding these foods?
1 - COLD CUTS
Ham, chorizo and other cold meats that we like to eat at the aperitif are to be avoided if you want to find a flat stomach. The saturated fats and salt they contain tend to act on the blood circulation and thus on your weight. If you want to indulge yourself, opt for poultry or lean meat instead, and as an aperitif, opt for crunchy vegetables.
2 - THE BREAD STICK
White bread is not recommended if you are watching your figure. To keep a flat stomach, avoid bread, or prefer wholemeal bread. Indeed, white bread contains refined flour, which tends to increase blood sugar levels in the body, which promotes the storage of fat around the abdominal area.
3 - CHICKPEAS
Most pulses such as chickpeas or lentils cause bloating and are often difficult to digest. After eating them, the stomach can swell and cause the belly to swell.
4 - FRIES
Breaded fish, French fries, potato chips and other fried foods are cooked in oil. We should therefore avoid eating them because they have a direct impact on intestinal transit. Fried foods are difficult to digest and also make the stomach swell.
5 - SWEETENED DRINKS
As we know, soft drinks and other sweetened beverages contain a lot of sugar, which should be avoided if you want to lose weight. Not to mention that soft drinks can make you feel bloated. If you feel like having a sweet drink, it is better to squeeze an orange or some fruit yourself, preferably in the morning, at breakfast.
