Monday Morning Fit Tip:
SHRINK YOUR STOMACH
WITH THESE TIPS
MAKE TIME FOR CARDIO. If you want to burn the most belly fat, a Duke University study confirms that aerobic exercise (including cardio classes, walking/running, swimming, etc) is the most effective in burning that deep, visceral belly fat.
- FORGET FROZEN DINNERS. They’re loaded with salt, which causes you to feel sluggish and look bloated. Focus on fruits and vegetables instead because they’re packed with water.
- GOSSIP ON THE GO. Instead of catching up with friends over food and drinks, invite them into the club! You’ll work out harder if you have an exercise buddy. Suggest a weekly walk & talk session, meet on the ellipticals, or in water aerobics.
CUT OUT SOME CARBS. When you decrease the carbs in your diet, you temporarily train your body to access stored carbohydrates called glycogen and burn them off, while also eliminating excess stored fluids. Which carbs should you cut?
DEFLATE YOUR MUFFIN TOP WITH A ROLL-UP. It’s not a new snack, it’s a Pilates move! Yoga and Pilates (or PiYo, a fast-paced combo of the 2) are fantastic for your core; try a class this week!
