Losing fat in the belly requires decreasing your total body-fat percentage. Increase your activity levels and eat healthfully to experience a 1- to 2-lb. weight loss in one week. If you are looking for a quick way to flatten your tummy, take a close look at your kitchen. The kitchen can hide foods that are sabotaging your efforts, such as processed foods that are high in fat, sugar and sodium. Make a few healthy changes in your eating and get moving for a flatter stomach in just a few days.
Perform high-intensity interval training every other day. Jog on the treadmill for one minute and walk for one minute. Repeat for 30 minutes.
Eat more fiber. Consume high-fiber foods such as whole grains, oatmeal, fruits, vegetables and fiber-rich cereal. According to “Fitness” magazine, fiber slows the flow of fat into your bloodstream, providing you with a steady stream of energy and making it less likely that you’ll overeat. High-fiber foods are less energy-dense, which means you can eat the same volume of food and still cut calories. Daily recommendations are 38g of fiber for adult men and 25g of fiber for adult women. In general, the more fiber you eat, the better.
Drink 1 gallon of water per day. Drinking water decreases bloating caused by dehydration, keeps you fuller longer and cuts calories. Replace sugar-loaded beverages, which contain about 200 calories per can, with water, according to USA Today.
Decrease your stress level. Stress increases cortisol production, which is a major cause of weight gain in the belly area, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. Reduce cortisol levels naturally through adequate rest, meditation and avoiding stimulants. Via, livestrong
