Get Fit Quick: 4 Tricks to Help Flatten Your Tummy
With summer fast approaching and the influx of BBQs and cookouts waving in, getting fit during the season can feel nearly impossible. Are you not quite bikini-ready? And do you need a last minute boost? It's not too late, Vixens. Dieting, healthy eating and exercising frequently is the necessary regimen to jumpstart your fitness goals, but there are a few last-minute tricks you can add to the routine that will expedite your journey to a flat tummy. Here are five things you should be doing to help flatten it out for the summer!
Ban Breads and Pasta
To all my carb addicts, suspend yourself for two weeks from any white grains; i.e. rice, rolls, and all forms of pasta. By giving yourself a short term goal of steering clear of the foods that cause bloating, will bring you inches closer to the stomach you want.
Eat Greek Yogurt
What Dr. Oz says, goes! According to our health guru, if you eat six ounces of Greek yogurt before any meal, you will shrink the fat cells needed to achieve a flat tummy. A recent study showed that people who consumed the calcium in yogurt while dieting lost 81% more belly fat than those who did not eat yogurt. Um. Yes, please!
Wrap It Up
A friend introduced me to the Ultimate Body Applicator (The Body Wrap), a cloth-infused applicator with natural botanicals and extracts that seep into your pores, fighting away those fat cells and toxins. It’s designed to tone, tighten and reduce the appearance of cellulite through topical detoxifying agents. But the best part? You can do it by yourself in the comfort of my own home. Make sure to drink water and watch inches shed in just 45 minutes. A cure to your bikini fears!
Studies show that lemon is extremely effective in helping the body regulate its metabolism and sugar absorption in a manner that helps you drop those extra pounds. A cup of lemon squeezed water first thing in the morning will introduce a healthy natural digestive aid into your stomach.
