How To Beat Belly Fat

During the summer, it's so hard to maintain a flat stomach while still indulging in your favorite warm weather treats (like the endless ice cream and french fries I've been eating in the Hamptons...ugh). Now that I'm on my way home and am going to begin preparing for senior year and the tennis season ahead, I'm going to pay more attention to what my body needs when it comes to food and exercise. Plus, who doesn't want a flatter belly?! Here are a few ways to slim down in the ab area:


+ Do exercises that strengthen your core and back for a slimmer waist. Be sure to add planking to your workout routine!

+ Stand tall! Maintaining good posture can make your stomach appear smaller and make you look up to 10 pounds smaller.

+ Engage in at least 150 minutes of moderately intense activity per week in order to begin losing belly fat.

+ Research has shown that blueberries may help diminish belly fat, so try eating more in your diet.

+ Perform interval workouts. Doing exercise in bursts is proven to reduce stubborn belly fat, so try mixing in some HIIT activities to your exercise schedule.

+ Eat foods high in insoluble fiber like whole grains, almonds and carrots.

+ Ditch carbonated drinks and fatty and salty foods, which can make you retain more water or feel uncomfortably full.


What works for you when you want to decrease belly fat?
