Snatched waist, defined abdomen, flat tummy, and toned abs, and there are now several terms for it. Still, no matter how many baptisms it has undergone, many crave it. If you are tired of ditching your crop tops and bikinis because your tummy won’t let you shine, look no more; this post might be the redemption you need. Here are six things you can do to lose belly fat and define your waistline without surgery.
Mind What You Eat
Out of the abundance of the mouth, the belly grows. One hard truth is abs are made (and lost) in the kitchen. You can do a million sit-ups and a hundred planks, but that pouch isn’t going anywhere if you’re not eating right. And the funny thing is it’s easier than you think. You’ve probably heard it before:
•Cut out refined carbs and carbonated drinks
•Cut out fried foods, ice cream and pizza
•Don’t eat late
•Drink two litres of water daily and eat your weight in fruits
It’s no surprise that exercise is vital to achieving a smaller waist. If your body stores excess fat around your stomach, it could be bulking up your waistline and making you look bigger.
To get the most out of your workouts, we suggest doing high-intensity interval training – also known as HIIT. HIIT is short bursts of cardio with short breaks.
Build Your Upper Body
The best way to make something smaller is by making things around it look bigger, an illusion if you will. Remember, when you exercise your upper curves, i.e. your shoulders and chest, the waist appears slimmer. Be Careful not to overbuild it, as it will make you look disproportionate.
Quality over quantity
People who diet tend to go from one extreme to another, and instead of sticking to healthy foods, they eat hardly anything. The secret to dieting is eating more nutritious meals that do not introduce excess calories, bad fats, and sugar into your diet.
