The New Year is around the corner and for a lot of people that means making goals. A lot of those goals tend to be health or fitness related too, right? If you are setting goals to make sure that 2016 is the year that you get lean, then I have some advice for you. Here are a few tips and tricks to follow, to help you to get that lean, flat stomach you have always wanted.
I’m sure we have all heard the phrase ‘you are what you eat’. This is so true when it comes to your stomach. Getting a flat stomach starts in the kitchen. Eating foods that are unprocessed will make sure that you don’t bloat and can build strong stomach muscles. Make sure you choose foods that are natural, high in protein full of vitamins and nutrients. The general rule to follow is if it has ingredients that you can’t pronounce, you shouldn’t be eating it. If your body is free of chemicals, you will feel a lot better and have a lot more energy.
Chew Your Food
This might sound silly, but make sure that you chew your food properly. If food can process and digest efficiently, you are less likely to get that bloated feeling. Taking your time eating a meal will also help you to eat less. When you take your time to chew, you body will realise when it is full. If you scoff it all down quickly, your body does not have time to notice.
Consider a Treatment to Give Your Fat Loss a Boost
There are various wraps or treatments out there that can help you to lose inches from your stomach. A fat freezing treatment like coolsculpting is non-surgical and works to break down fat deposits in certain areas. Sometimes we all feel like we need a boost, and this might be the type of thing to kick start your flat stomach programme.
Plan an Exercise Regime
A lot of how you look and feel is down to the food that you eat, but you will need to exercise too. There are a lot of workout programs online that you could find and choose one to suit your needs. It is recommended to exercise for at least 30 minutes, five days a week. Make sure you have a mix of cardio and muscle building exercises, to be most effective.
Do you have a friend or family member that is interested in joining you on this journey? I find that I stick to exercise more when I have a workout buddy. It helps to motivate and encourage each other. It helps because you are accountable to someone. If you have arranged to meet at the gym, you are less likely to cancel than if it was only you going.
I hope you enjoy the rest of the holiday season. Good luck with your goal setting in the new year. I hope it is your best one yet!
