Since I started my journey with my gym and healthy lifestyle many people have been messaging and asking me for tips on how to get a flat tummy or to at least lose the belly fat they have. I have decided to write this blog so as to share my tips on how I lost my belly fat and got my “flat tummy” that I have been raving to everyone about.
Let me just put it out there that it is not an easy task, it requires discipline as well as dedication. We all know that nothing worth having comes easy and if one wants the results they will have to do the work.
I decided to take the “30 Day Flat Abs Challenge”, not with the intention of really having abs but just to have a flat stomach, and the results have been AMAZING to say the least, and I am currently on “day 25” so I have 5 more days to go.
Just to reiterate, the glasses of water shown on on the “challenge” is EXTRA water given, I challenged myself by drinking at least 1,5 liter of water a day, drinking more water helps because water has NO CALORIES, plus it also gives you the impression that you are full thus enabling you to eat less throughout the day.
Although gym helps, not many of us have the luxury of gym or the time to go, these simple exercises take less than 20 minutes and they actually really work. I know a lot of people might have overdone it during the holidays and actually gained more belly weight, eating the right type of food also helps, as well as the right amount.
EAT LESS. I achieved this by eating smaller portions of food. Use a smaller plate than your usual big plate, you can fill a small plate with food but not actually eat a huge portion.
EAT HEALTHY! EAT HEALTHY! I cannot emphasize that enough. I joined this challenge with my big sister and we both did the exercises, but because she is a fan of junk-food her progress has been rather slow. Try to avoid junk food at all costs, and stay away from situations which will tempt you to eat Junk Food. Do not tempt yourself!
FRUIT! FRUIT! You can never go wrong with fruit and vegetables. They are low in calories and very healthy for you. What I do everyday is I carry a container at work with sliced carrots and cucumber so whenever my colleagues go to buy snacks I also have something to snack on which keeps me occupied and is also good for my diet.
BE ACTIVE!! Walk to places which are near as opposed to using transport, it is both good for your pocket as well as your health.
Try using the stairs instead of the lift, it is good to stay active during the day because you burn more calories the more active you are and that helps with getting a flat tummy.
I have 5 more days to go to finish my challenge. If you want a flat tummy, I dare you to try this!! If you have any questions, drop me a line on the comments section and I will gladly assist, Let’s do this!!!!! Flat tummies for all!!!!!!
