You don’t really realise what junk food you’re filling into your innocent tummy until summer kicks in. All this time you have been careless and festive season has made you binge eat. The summer time is when you realise you need to be back in shape. I am no different and let’s just say that I drink more cola than water. I simply cannot resist junk food, pizzas and French fries. I had weddings and festivities to attend and binged on the scrumptious food served there. The result was unwanted fat around my belly. I knew I wanted to get rid of that soon. After all, who wants your belly showing in the pictures you post on social media.
I searched the internet for solutions to cut down my belly fat, but all in vain. So, I asked with my close friends for solutions and surprisingly they had amazing results.
Three Flat Belly Drinks to Aid Weight-loss
These 3 drinks worked like magic potions.They are detoxing, health enhancing and most of all help you lose weight.
Lemon is just super magical. It has got so many benefits that help activate your liver and results in breakage of complex food. The most interesting part is lemon also has high fibre content that keeps you full for longer. Honey is an instant energy booster, helps your stomach become alkaline and lose weight easily. Add the juice of half a lemon and a teaspoon of honey in a glass of warm water. Have this an hour after you wake up. before breakfast.
I am a tea lover. But caffeine is bad for your health, so I have this healthy tea. You can have it after your meal or any time of the day. A teaspoon of coriander seeds, cumin seeds and lemon seeds boiled in water for 5-6 minutes. Just strain and drink this tea.
The Belly Flattening Juice
We all love juices. So a blend of cucumber, parsley, ginger and a squeeze of lemon in water. That’s all you need to beat the heat and fat. Cucumber has high water content and fewer calories. Ginger, on the other hand, will melt your excess fat and enhance your curves.
Exercises that Help Lose Belly Fat
Let’s get a little sweaty this summer. Get out your track pants and set your alarm for an hour earlier than usual. Keep your workout wear ready, primarily for yoga and gym. Make sure you do the following exercises regularly:
- Side crunches
- Twist crunches
- Reverse crunches
- Vertical leg crunch
A healthy mind
The most important thing is that you need to keep your mind stress free and yoga is the best way to do that.
Since it’s summer and there is a lot of junk to eat in this season, we definitely need to have a control over that.
Watch out for these following evils!
-Excess rice and cereals
Instead, you can opt for the following options;
-Munch on dry fruits more as they are rich in fibre
-Have fresh fruits and juices.
-Take salad made of fruits, beans, and vegetables.
Healthy Replacements for your Meal
Don’t just lessen the amount of food on your plate. Learn to replace your unhealthy diet with a healthier one. Chocolate spread can be replaced by peanut butter on bread. White bread by brown bread, fried food can be grilled or baked. Intake water is more beneficial than colas.
Avoid weight loss tablets
All those fat loss tablets are surely attractive but will destroy you in the long run. It even results in getting you fat after you stop taking them.This may be a gradual process but trust me it’s the best healthy way to lose belly fat. As you know smooth and steady wins the race.
Remember that there is no such thing as spot reduction. When you lose overall weight, your problem areas like the belly or thighs automatically get thin.
