Get A Flatter Stomach Fast

If your sick of hiding your belly under baggy tops or buying your pants a size too big so your stomach won’t spill over the waistband? You’re not alone. The stomach is a major, if not the major problem area for men and women. I can’t tell you how often I’m asked for advice on how to achieve killer abs, flatten the mommy pouch or lose the love handles. If you really want to lose your muffin top for good or to finally try to score that six-pack, use these results-driven techniques and advice for helping you win the battle of the belly bulge once and for all. These exercises will bring blood and thus oxygen to these problem areas and I believe that this oxidization will help break down the fat.

VHOLD

The V-Hold

First lay on your back and lift your legs and back off the ground to form a V-shape, holding your arms to the side. Keep your back and legs straight and hold the position, after 15 seconds add an arm pulse. Keep doing this for a total of 30 seconds.

SIDE ELBOW PLANK

The Side Elbow Plank

Start in the same position as the elbow plank (below), then turn your body to the side so that your hips are stacked above each other and straighten your arm that’s in the air. Hold this position for 60 seconds and add a hip pulse after you’ve held it for 30 seconds. Then flip and do the same on the opposite side.

ELBOW PLANK

The Elbow Plank

Pull your body into a plank position, and then lower yourself onto your elbows. Keep your shoulders over your elbows, make sure your abs are flat, and clench down there like you do when you do your Kegels. Remember to breathe but don’t allow your stomach or lower back to drop. Hold this for 60 seconds.

SIDE BEND

Side Bend

This exercise helps stretch the triceps, upper back, abdominals and oblique’s. Bend to one side, while holding your opposite arm overhead. Then quickly stretch to the other side raising the other arm. This should be done in a controlled, continuous fashion for 10 stretches on each side of your body.

Eat the Right Foods

First, let’s get something straight, all processed foods need to go. Get rid of the potato chips, microwave dinners and definitely put an end to those fast food fixes. The sodium, preservatives and sugars alone will keep your belly looking bloated and defeat your efforts. Replace the junk food with whole, quality, organic foods that are packed with healthy nutrients, not preservatives.

SODIUM

Cut Your Sodium Intake and Up Your Water Intake

Bloating isn’t all in your head. It’s possible to carry extra water weight in your tummy. To beat the bloat, decrease your sodium intake to 1,500 mg a day and increase your water consumption. It’s easy to start monitoring your sodium intake by reading food labels. Limiting the amount of sodium you consume will help you reduce your water retention and look leaner in your clothes.

CRUNCH

The Basic Crunch

There’s a reason why crunches are an oldie but goodie. They’re great at flattening your abs. Lay on your back and bend your knees, keeping your feet flat on the floor. As you exhale, draw your navel in and lift your shoulders off the ground. Inhale and release, but don’t fully relax your abs. Do this for 60 seconds.

WINDMILL

The Windmill

Stand up straight with your legs shoulder-width apart and pivot your left hip out. Make your right foot perpendicular to your left, and draw the outside of your right hand to the inside of your right thigh. Move your left arm straight up into the air, and bend to the right, using your oblique’s. Then “windmill” your arms around to the opposite side. You can add dumbbells if you want more resistance. Do 15 reps on each side.

BICYCLE

The Isometric Bicycle

Start off laying on your back with your hands behind your ears, pointing your elbows out. Lift your shoulders off the floor and move your right elbow to your left knee, keeping your spine connected to the floor. Hold this for 20 seconds and switch, finishing with a fast bicycle move. Do this for 60 seconds total.

Quick, Easy Weight Loss Secrets

Honest, Serious Weight Loss Secrets

Losing weight can be daunting.  Many try and try to lose weight throughout the year with no success.  Or maybe some weight is lost and then it all comes back.  Sound familiar?

So what I’ve compiled is a few “secrets” that can help you get on track to losing weight and keeping it off.

 

Repetition

If you have a hard time deciding what to eat that’s healthy, then you may want to find one or two options and eat them almost every day.  I’m not suggesting the same food for every meal, every day.  But what I am suggesting is that maybe for breakfast, stick to a specific plan and try to repeat it.

I drink smoothies every single morning.  This is an easy way to get great nutrition quickly.  They taste great and you can get multiple servings of fruits and vegetables in a drink instead of having to prepare them and eat them off of your plate.

Another choice is to eat unsweetened yogurt with your own added fruit.  Pick fresh fruit that’s in season.  Eat this every morning so it’s easy to make sure you won’t skip out on breakfast.  I’ll buy fruit that’s in season in bulk and then wash it and freeze it so I can use it throughout the year.

 

Get Spicy

Adding hot spices and hot peppers to your food actually speeds up your metabolism.  However the greatest benefit is that spicy foods tend to slow down your eating.  Americans tend to eat way too fast.  By eating too fast, your body can’t signal that it’s full until you’ve already over-indulged.

 

Stop Listening To Your Mother

Did you know that obesity doesn’t “Run in the family.”  Of course, some families are genetically larger than others, but none of us are genetically designed to be overweight.  The reason that you, your mother, and your grandmother are all overweight is because of your choices and your lifestyle.  That’s what really “Runs in the family.”  If you’re cooking the same meals that your great, great, grandmother did, then guess what?  You’re going to have the same body shape, and the same illnesses and diseases.

O.K., so you’re not eating the same recipes.  Great!  But what about your habits?  Do you snack all the time just like you mother does?  Do you stop at the drive thru’s a few times a week for a sugared up coffee, a sugared up smoothie, or a sugared up soda and a small snack?  Do you go out to eat multiple times a week?

Look at the patterns of your family.  You’ll see that if you change your habits, you’ll be able to break the cycle of your family and possibly create a new “Normal” for your own children and grandchildren.

I haven’t checked the science behind this, but my own observations have shown that people that grow up eating pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, and biscuits every single day of the week for breakfast, are almost destined to be overweight, obese, and end up with diabetes and heart disease.  Generations ago, farmers could get away with this because they did physical labor outside for 12-20 hours a day, so they burned off all of the calories.  But that’s not the case anymore.  Even farmer’s today have it much easier when it comes to the “physical” part of their day.  So when today’s generation eats these horrible foods for breakfast every day, it’s almost a guarantee that they’ll be battling obesity later in life.

 

 Eat A Big Lunch

Americans tend to “save” the big meal of the day for dinner.  But if you change your habits to have your larger meal at lunch time instead, then your body has more waking hours to digest the food.  Chances are, you’re more active between lunch and dinner as well which will help you burn off a few more calories.  This is an either, or situation.  Don’t eat a large lunch and then eat a large dinner as well.  Obviously counterproductive.

Stick with these changes in your habits and you’ll see some additional weight falling off.  If you’re needing additional help, then only you will know when it’s time.  We’re here for you when you’re ready!
