Many times the people succeed to reach their weight-loss goal, by eating clean or hitting the gym, however, the extra pooch around their midsection stays yet.
If you are facing such a problem, here are three tips that you can do to help you achieve a trimmer belly.
- When Eating
Besides looking at your healthy diet, you should look at your bathroom schedule, too. Most of the times, your belly might not be caused by fat but by air trapped in your digestive system. That happens when you’re not getting enough fiber (25 to 30 grams a day) because constipation can cause bloating. However, you have to be careful to not overdo it on fiber or eating too many gas-producing foods (apples, broccoli, or beans) as they can also make your belly pooch a bit. Luckily, there are also foods that you can eat, such blueberries that are proven to diminish belly fat.

- When Doing Cardio
According to plenty of studies and peoples’ experience, including interval training in your cardio sessions is proven to diminish stomach fat.
When you are running, biking, or swimming, mix it up by adding 10- to 60-second HIIT (fast-paced or sprinting intervals) such as a 45-minute treadmill workout. – HERE
High-intensity interval training (HIIT) will push you to maximum training for a period of time and should be followed up with a shorter rest period. Try this full-body 10-minute HIIT workout. – HERE
- When Strength Training
Many of the people use basic crunches to tone abs, however, they are not the most appropriate exercises as they only target certain abdominal muscles.
The best results will be seen by incorporating full-body exercises, such as different variations of plank or core moves that use a ball.
For instance, simply balancing on one leg on a BOSUwill target your core, as well as trying to use different types of equipment, such as small hand towel to sculpt your core. – HERE
