Fight Belly Fat With Personal Training

With that cleared, here, now,  are some of the practices that you need to also be taught in personal training to help you keep your abs flat.

5 Personal Training (Not-So) Secrets For Flat Abs

1. De-stress.

Did you know that when you’re stressed, it gets you to store fats around your belly? That’s right. Every time you’re stressed, your stress hormone cortisol goes higher causing fats to build up around your belly

Some of the ways you can do to de-stress is to play and enjoy some music time; move and groove to the beat. Or you can take some time off the chores and spend some wacky afternoon with a friend with a fabulous sense of humor. Catching up on sleep is also one of the most effective ways to rid yourself of all your stress.

2. Detox with lemon water every morning.

Drinking a glass of lemon water in the morning will help lessen the production of acids in your body, which in turn helps burn those unwanted fats and debloat you.

3. Go MUFA.

MUFA stands for the foods that are high in MonoUnsaturated Fatty Acid like almonds, pistachios, avocados and olive oil. They help keep your belly full and put your cravings on check.

4. Choose Lean Proteins.

Do you know that there are actually foods that can help you burn the fat? And they’re not the ones that you just know are “nutritious” and are forcing yourself to swallow; turkey, fish and tofu are foods that are delish but can help you burn those fats in your belly.

5. Avoid the mean belly bloaters.

Cabbage and broccoli can make your tummy swell. Dairy products such as milk, cheese, butter and yogurt are tremendous belly bloaters.

Salty foods like chips make your body retain water that causes it to bloat; and the carbon dioxide in beers and sodas are tragic belly bloaters as well.

How do you deal with the belly bloaters? You don’t have to completely deprive yourself of these foods, but what you can do is to learn the art of portion control and take the privilege of cheat days. Portion control will help you regulate what goes into your body and cheat days will satisfy your food cravings and help you avoid rebelling against your personal training program.
