Belly Flattening Tips For Lazy Women

flattummyIt would be irresponsible of us not to mention that in order to look great and feel great, it is best to eat healthy frequent and small meals and exercise regularly. That being said, if you need to flatten your belly and look slimmer quickly, we have a few tips for you.

Why would anyone choose the quick and lazy route, as opposed to taking the responsible route of making more long term changes? Well, maybe there is an event happening and you need to look your best or you are already doing “the right thing” but just need a little extra help.

Luckily, it is possible to flatten your belly and look slimmer almost immediately. “Your stomach is the one part of your body that reacts quickly to dietary changes–good and bad. If you want to look thinner fast, avoid gassy veggies, chewing gum, salt, carbonated beverages, and any foods with sugar alcohols,” says Erin Palinski, RD and certified personal trainer. These foods will lead to water retention and bloating, she explains. If you normally eat three larger meals a day, Palinski recommends cutting those portions in half and eating smaller meals every two to three hours.

 1. Have watermelon for dessert

The amino acid arginine, abundant in watermelon, might promote weight loss, according to a new study in the Journal of Nutrition. Researchers supplemented the diets of obese mice with arginine over 3 months and found that doing so decreased body fat gains by a whopping 64%. Adding this amino acid to the diet enhanced the oxidation of fat and glucose and increased lean muscle, which burns more calories than fat does. Snack on watermelon in the summer, and eat other arginine sources, such as seafood, nuts, and seeds, year-round.

 2. Turn in an hour earlier

You’ll be less likely to overeat the next day. Eating right and exercising regularly help ward off both stress and belly fat, but only if you’re getting enough sleep. Skimping on sleep causes levels of the stress hormone cortisol to rise, along with levels of deep abdominal fat. “There’s a definite association between lack of sleep, increased stress hormones, and weight gain,” says Auburn University exercise researcher Michele Olson, PhD. In a 6-year study, Canadian researchers found that adults who averaged just 5 or 6 hours of shut-eye a night were 35% more likely to gain 10-plus pounds and were nearly 60% heavier around the middle than those who slept 7 to 8 hours.

 3. Munch more whole grains and protein

Trading refined carbs for whole grains is not only healthy, it can actually help you shed belly fat, too, according to research from a Pennsylvania State University study. Dieters in the study who ate whole grains shed more than twice as much abdominal fat as those who ate none. Whole grains reduce the production of insulin, a hormone that encourages fat storage, making it easier to lose belly fat.

    I started growing my own vegetables 3 yrs ago and enjoy the process of planting and watching things grow. Last yr I had sweet potatoes that grew to 25×27 in diameter without any supplements. This yr I have added purple sweet potatoes which I discovered in China. I have not eaten beef or pork since 1983 and I feel so much better. Without exercise/walking daily, my attitude is not good.

    And what's so sad, its expensive as hell to eat healthy! I work overnight and I definitely think that has something to do with my jacked up eating and sleeping habits.
