What is the first thing you see when you look at the mirror? Your belly, right? We are always staring at this area imagining how good we could look if we had a flat belly. Then we start making promises: "I'll start on Monday". But apparently, Monday never comes and we never start pursuing our goal.
Having a flat and toned abdomen is not that difficult, all we need is: healthy eating and exercises. The first one helps us to purify our body; the second helps us to tone the muscles.
So let's get to work now! If you want to have a flat and beautiful abdomen, you must follow these tricks:
1.- Drink a lot of water. Digestive problems due to lack of fiber and liquid can make your stomach look bigger. If you drink a lot of water you will work more fat in the body and little by little the metabolism will help your abdomen to look less big.
2.- Drink warm lemon water every morning. It is highly purifying and it is pretty aggressive too, so you must start consuming it carefully. You can also add oranges to room temperature water and drink it several times a day.
3.- Ginger tea. Ginger is a powerful anti-inflammatory and digestive too. One centimeter of its root will be enough to prepare a cup of tea that will purify your body.
4.- Eat small portions of food several times a day, instead of just three, it will help your digestive system. Eat low-lactose foods such as yogurt, only small amounts. Eat slowly and try to consume potassium-rich foods, such as avocado, banana, papaya, mango and melon. Potassium is a natural diuretic, so it will help you to eliminate retained liquids and reduce inflammation.
5.- Do some aerobic exercises. Do abdominal exercises to strengthen the front and side of your abdomen. Just lying down and lifting your legs for 20 seconds is enough, with series of 4 and resting. Alternating various exercises between belly and legs is ideal to get a flat belly.
Tricks you did not know:
6.- Contract the abdomen. You must take a few minutes of the day to contract the belly. Sit down and release your abdomen, do it 10 times and that's it.
7.- Improve your position. Standing upright will make you notice a great difference in your body. This trick goes hand in hand with the previous one because in the end the habit will help you keep your abdomen always contracted. The muscles get used to it, so they acquire another position, making you almost magically look thinner.
