Stomach fat, be gone!
Clean eating and hitting the gym can help you reach your weight-loss goal, but you might find you have a little extra pooch around your midsection. Here are three things you can do to help you achieve a trimmer belly.
Take an honest look at your diet and your bathroom schedule. Her belly could not be caused by fat, but by air trapped in your digestive system. If you are not getting enough fiber (which need 25-30 grams a day), constipation can cause swelling. On the other hand, overdoing it in fiber or eating too many gas-producing foods such as broccoli, apples or beans can also make your dog belly a little. Fortunately, there are foods you can eat-as-cranberries that have been shown to reduce belly fat, so drinking milkshake or crunch thisflat-belly-belly up this salad to keep you regular and help debloat.
When Doing Cardio
Studies show that including interval training in your cardio sessions is proven to diminish stomach fat. If you find that you normally stick to a consistent pace when running, biking, or swimming, mix it up by adding 10- to 60-second, fast-paced or sprinting intervals—here’s a 45-minute treadmill workout that does just that. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) works on the same principle as intervals, where you push to your maximum training for a period of time and follow up with a shorter rest period. Give this type of workout a try with our full-body 10-minute HIIT workout.
When Strength Training
Basic crunches can help tone your abs, but they only target certain abdominal muscles. Incorporate full-body exercises like variations of plankor core moves using a ball. Simply balancing on one leg on a BOSU will target your core, too. Also, try using different types of equipment—this 10-minute abs video features a small hand towel to sculpt your core.
