The secret to a flat stomach is a good diet. Being purposeful about eating a clean, healthy diet and exercising to burn fat and strengthen your core is essential to having a flat tummy. Here’s how:
Eat little and often. This keeps your metabolism up and prevents the storage of excess calories.
Include protein in every meal. Protein keeps you fuller, longer, reducing the need for snacking.
Foods high in soluble fibres such as oats and legumes slow down the passage of food in your stomach and decrease absorption of calories.
Eat good fats as they have many health benefits including reducing the risk of obesity or storing fat around your midsection.
Take a daily probiotic to improve your gut flora and reduce the risk of weight gain.
