If you want to flatten your stomach you’ve probably read a lot of books on the subject and maybe even have tried a lot of different diets to burn fat. Problem is most of these books and diets have it all wrong, they are too strict, are only temporary and therefore you always fail because it’s almost impossible to stay with these diets for the long run.
The reason for diets that proclaim that you must starve yourself not working 95% of the time is that your body is too smart, it’s defense mechanisms kick in to prevent starvation and you end up as fat or fatter that when you started out. Now let’s see some real tips to flatten your stomach properly and keep those dreaded love handles from showing again.
Count those calories! – I know what you must be thinking, “counting calories, what a drag!” but to flatten your stomach quite simply you have to know how many calories per day you’re eating so you don’t end up eating more than your daily calorie allowance.
If you eat more than said calorie allowance you’ll gain fat, so get in the habit of counting your calories and eat a little less of what your calorie allowance states and you’ll start burning those ugly pounds of fat. Counting calories will soon become second nature to you and when the fat starts dropping you’ll be thankful you picked up this healthy habit.
Perform some kind of aerobic activity – This is absolutely crucial if you want to flatten your stomach, and it can speed up the process tremendously. In fact, if you obey the rule of your calorie allowance eating slightly less than what it allows and combine it with an aerobic exercise like running, swimming or cycling, just examples, you will start shedding pounds of fat every week like clockwork.
Be sure to perform your favorite physical activity with some degree of intensity, that way your body will work harder, your metabolic rate will go into overdrive allowing you to burn more fat and you will be able to flatten your stomach very quickly.
