Slimming down takes time and dedication, but with a few quick remediesyou can look like you have lost weight in just a few hours.
Read below to find out how you can make your belly flatter by the end of the day!
1. Drink lukewarm with lemon
This drink is fantastic for reviving up your metabolism and digestive system first thing in the morning, and can even help with inflammation as well!
Lemon juice is also great for giving you an energy boost, so try swapping your morning coffee with hot water and lemon and, not only will you be feeling much healthier, but you won’t experience the caffeine crash.
Also, lemon intake is quite good for skin as well as it is enriched in Vitamin-C
2. Try a day going gluten-free or dairy-free
Many people suffer from food intolerances without even realisation. A great way to test if you are intolerant to any foods is to remove them from your diet and monitor your symptoms; this should ideally be for a few weeks, but starting by cutting them out for one day could help to reduce your risk of bloating or discomfort later that evening.
3. Replace your evening snack with pineapple
Bromelain, the enzyme in pineapple, is thought to assist in digestion by breaking down proteins in the stomach, according to the American Cancer Society. This helps to banish bloating.
Papaya is also a great fruit for reducing bloating, so snack on a bowl of tropical fruit when you get peckish.Pineapples are tropical fruit that are rich in vitamins, enzymes and antioxidents. They may help boost the immune system, build strong bones and aid indigestion. Also, despite their sweetness, pineapples are low in calories.
4. Keep an eye on your sodium intake
Salt is often in far more foods than many people realise; processed foods typically contain a large amount of it. This is one of the main culprits for bloating.
If you want your belly to shrink by the end of the day, check the sodium levels on your food and don’t eat more than 5-6gms of salt per day.
5. Eat more fibre
Increasing your intake of fibre could help to banish bloating as fibre reduces inflammation because it helps your digestive system to run smoothly. If your digestive system is functioning to its full potential then you are less likely to experience bloating or constipation
Remember to avoid certain fibre-rich foods such as beans and cruciferous vegetables though as these could actually make your bloating worse!.
If you are following a clean eating lifestyle then there’s a high chance that you already skip dessert because they are often full of sugar or artificial sweeteners; both of which are known to cause bloating.
If you want a flatter stomach by the end of the day then forgo the sugary treats and swap them for some fresh fruit (perhaps some pineapple, as mentioned earlier)
7. Avoid alcohol
Alcohol causes digestive issues and is often full of sugar, so can result in bloating (and the awful sluggish feeling that comes with it). If you want your stomach to be flatter by the end of the day then stay away from alcohol for today.
8. Drink peppermint tea
Peppermint tea aids digestion by helping food pass through the stomach quickly. It also reduces the chance of experiencing the build-up of stomach gas.
Drink a cup of peppermint tea (often referred to as the “stomach healer”) to not only get a flatter belly by the end of today, but also to aid relaxation.
