You wake up to find your belly fat & bloating has completely vanished!
Sound too good to be true?
I used to think so too until I started implementing these 7 simple techniques for cutting belly fat quickly as part of our Super Sister Fitness 5-Day Detox plan.
Belly fat and midsection bloating can be a signal of dangerous health conditions and poor nutrition. Having extra weight around your midsection increases your chances for getting chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke and more.
This information is super important, not only to help you reduce bloating & jumpstart your results, but also to help you control your overall health!
Keep reading below to learn 7 simple techniques for burning belly fat quickly without pills, extreme starvation methods or other fad diets…
P.S. If you’re reading this as part of the 5 Day Detox challenge, read all the way to the bottom for a list of “Approved” foods and other instructions!
1. Every day, start your day with a large glass water with juice from 1/2 lemon
Lemon juice aids digestion by flushing out toxins within your digestive tract. It can also help with bloating and indigestion as well as inflammation.
2. Eliminate processed sugars and processed food
Stray away from sugary sweets and processed foods since these often contain refined sugars and artificial ingredients that raise blood sugar and increase fat storage around the midsection and thighs. Instead, try fresh fruit when you’re craving something sweet.
3. Eat plants in abundance
One of the best ways to banish belly fat forever is to eat a plant-based diet. This does not necessarily mean you need to be vegetarian or vegan.
On a plant-based diet you will be providing your body with the essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and electrolytes it needs to maintain a naturally lean body without counting calories. That means you can eat as much fresh fruit, vegetables and greens as you like!
Each day you should drink at least half of your body weight in ounces as a minimum (ex: if you weigh 180 lbs, you need at least 90 oz of water daily). Staying hydrated will help aid in digestion and it also helps the body flush any harmful toxins that may be draining your energy. Plus, drinking enough water can also help curb mindless eating when you’re not actually hungry.
5. Eat fiber rich foods
Eating at least 20 grams of fiber per day can greatly decrease fat around your midsection. Try to include fiber-rich foods like fruits, veggies, legumes, beans and whole grains at each meal.
6. Drink green tea
Drinking green tea every day has been shown to increase metabolism and fat burning, especially around your waist. In fact, fat oxidation (burning of fat cells) was increased by 17% in one study.
7. Cut back on dairy and gluten (or eliminate them completely)
Both dairy & gluten are hard for your body to digest and can cause inflammation and bloating. Removing dairy and gluten from your diet for a period of time can help aid digestion and increase fat burning.
