What to eat? What food to avoid?

The first piece of advice that we can give you is to avoid as much as you can sugar. This will keep insulin levels low and also keep levels of glucagon high. Glucagon plays an active role in allowing the body to regulate the utilisation of glucose and fats. This hormone, is the best friend you could ever have in the struggle for a flat belly! The closer to zero grams of sugar you consume, the lower your insulin and the higher your glucagon levels.

Salt can make your tummy bloat also so try using natural sea salt or kosher salt, which is lower in sodium. 

The best flat belly menu

Breakfast: A slice of whole-wheat bread with natural peanut butter and 1 cup of your favourite berries or a nice porridge full of vitamins.

Lunch: Spinach salad with sliced avocado, grilled firm tofu, and cherry tomatoes, drizzled with a little olive oil and fresh lemon juice. 

Dinner: Grilled salmon, a roasted sweet potato, and sautéed asparagus with olive oil and garlic. 

Snack: A cup of fat-free yogurt with 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds.

Tip 1: To prevent bloating, chewing is the best tip! Chew food until it is like applesauce in your mouth. Digestion begins in the mouth, and without proper chewing, food is not well-digested.

Tip 2: Eating portion-controlled meals that include whole-grain foods throughout the day is the best way to eat for a flat belly.

How many days per week should I exercise?

Exercising is the best way to have a healthy way to live.  To get your flat belly of your dream you have to focus on abs exercises.

But you should first start your workout by cardio exercises. They will heat up your core temperature and improve circulation, both of which will aid in acquiring a flat stomach. Strive for at least 30 minutes a day minimum.
