Ways to Have a Flatter Tummy

Every women wants to achieve a flatter stomach for the sake of physical appearance as well as overall health. But how can we get rid of the unsightly pouch? It is really difficult to obtain a flat tummy specially after childbirth. Keeping our tummy flat and trim takes a lot of determination and effort. But we can get to tame that stubborn belly bulge by following some simple rules:

Avoid salty and processed food - Check food labels. Just because something doesn't taste healthy or sweet doesn't mean that it isn't high in belly bloaters (sodium and sugar).

Stop drinking carbonated drinks - It has a tendency to re-direct fat towards the midsection. It can instantly puff up you tummy because of it's high sugar content.

Fill up on fiber - Not only do fiber-rich foods like fruits and veggies make you feel full, but they also prevent constipation.

Be calorie conscious - Choose the source of your calories. It's not just how much you eat but how high the caloric content of your food that matters. Your caloric consumption and expenditure should cancel each other out, to avoid storing excess calories as fat.

Don't skip meals - This is the reason why starvation diets don't work. Once you stop eating, your body sends a signal to your brain, saying, "Hey, I don't have much fuel left in me. Yo got to slow things down.

Eat five small meals - Have breakfast, lunch, dinner, and two snacks in between. But you have to make sure that you eat smaller portions. This kind of diet will, in effect speed up the metabolism.
